Both have to provide value for money – but this is usually much easier for the public to identify in budget equipment. The amazing thing is, including just a few of these controls eliminates the need for any sort of display: Ordinarily on this kind of machine you could have expected to find only fairly safe effects designed to please everyone but with no real character.
