Open the box, you'll be glad you did.
Before I head home, there is one thing that I need to inform you of. There's this pretty cool site that will build your listening library for you. It's called :
Pandora and you just type in a few artist that you like and it'll automatically give you a tune of theirs and then another tune by a similar artist, and so on and so on and so on. You can eliminate the crap, keep the goodies and even buy the tunes if you want, (but who would want to? It's FREE!)
You can send your library to a friend if you'd like (although when I tried, it didn't really work.)
UPDATE: It no longer works outside Japan! Doh!
