Cracking wee gizmo. I use it to amplify the bedroom telly through speakers and its small and saves a cumbersome hi-fi unit.
Can't fault it at the price.

This review is from: Ratio 465 Ground Signals (4) (Toy)
A bit sneaky as the picture is the perfectly painted completed model. They then arrive as unpainted bits of plastic . Yes, it probably
says it somewhere, but...

This is amazing! and (dare I say it) entertaining! Played with great skill and humour. New perspective on standard works. Well worth a new recording and your money!

Bought this after being 'sold' on the WW1 blurb. Sadly the music is pretty ordinary. Technically proficient but not an individual voice such as Gurney or Butterworth.

2.0 out of 5 stars Careful..., 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Poetry Classics (Audio CD)
A bit like a listen to old radio programmes. Older recordings, voices and delivery with associated 1950's 'precious' approach to poetry. Quayle and Burton survive this better than the others. If you like this 'archive' feeling go ahead: otherwise you might seek out a more modern recording and performance style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait, 7 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Berlioz fans and opera lovers have had to wait a long time for this masterpiece on DVD whilst having to tolerate lesser works getting multiple releases. However, be assured this is well worth it. In the same way as Mahler's symphonies could be argued to have been written for the audio age, this opera is ideal for home watching on DVD. The staging, slightly convoluted plot and stamina required all conspire against frequent performances. However, the consistently high-quality music is too good to be ignored. This is confirmed by the number of `spin-offs' Berlioz made from his material due to the few productions in his lifetime including the 'Roman Carnival' Overture and the 'Reverie and Caprice'.

The modern staging is imaginative and brings both theatrical humour and visual challenge to the plot. The orchestra and soloists are on top form with Maija Kovalevska outstanding as Teresa. The chorus work like (pardon the cross-reference) Trojans and the costumes, sets and choreography combine to make this a `must have' item.

Don't let any anti-modernist influence you; this is a treat for the eyes and ears and a life-enhancing visual and musical experience. Buy it, watch it and enjoy many times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great discovery, 2 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An impulse buy to 'fill a gap' in the collection but one of the most relaxing and enjoyable CD's bought for some time. If you're looking for an accurate and musical rendition of this music, you couldn't do better.
