Fortunately, Gear4’s new BlackBox micro doesn’t have that problem. The dinky box comes chock full of inputs, with a line–in for listening to tunes stashed on your MP3 player or PC.
You can take some juice from your computer via USB, or stick it straight into the mains power. And thanks to the gel base, you won’t get any nasty distortion when you stick it on a flat surface.
It’s yours from August at a mere £19.99.
