5.0 out of 5 stars Really helps dry and damaged hair, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried a lot of shampoos and most of them don't justify the price. This however really does repair dry and damaged hair. I noticed the difference within 2 washes, using both shampoo and conditioner.

It may seem very expensive (and it is) however you really do not need to use much of it, a smallish sized blob of both shampoo and conditioner and washing every other day means this will last a good month. Let the conditioner soak into the hair for 3 minutes before washing off.

I love the smell too, which is a change from most of these repair treatment style shampoo and conditioners. Both my girlfriend and myself use it regularly now. The 500ml is better value than the 250ml set if you want to save some money.

4.0 out of 5 stars ultimate sound quality, 28 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sound quality is excellent with 24 bit 44-196khz high resolution audio tracks, and a step up from the AK100 and AK120 which I also own. I use this with a dedicated headphone amplifier, although I have noticed the AK240 has a much better amplifier than the previous models which you would expect considering the price. The device now has full wifi support,. including over the air firmware updates, which is a massive improvement.

The AK240 supports WAV, FLAC, WMA, MP3, OGG, APE (Normal, High, Fast), AAC, ALAC, AIFF, DFF and DSF and the following sample rates. LAC/WAV/ALAC/AIFF = 8 kHz~192 kHz (8/16/24 bits per sample); DSD64 = 1-bit, 2.8 MHz, stereo; DSD128 = 1-bit, 5.6 MHz, stereo.

This is the only issue - the price. Even with the fantastic upgrades (Android modified OS now for instance) and the huge 3.3 inch AMOLED screen - it is expensive although to be fair they are using aircraft grade duralumin for the chassis.

It is all about the sound quality - the company are using dual Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC which are about as good as you can get, regardless of this being a portable device. The audio support and dynamic range is as good as many full size devices costing in excess of £10,000.

To joe public, the price is extortionate, but in reality, the hardware inside and high grade materials used in the construction does support the price. You can also insert a 128 GB microSD card to take the total storage up to 384GB.

If you are only playing compressed MP3 audio files then this is not something you need to buy, but if you own, or have bought a series of high definition 24 bit audio files from many of the online stores (linn records, HD tracks etc) then this is seriously worth a consideration - if you can afford it.

Tested with Grado PS1000 headphones, Beyerdynamic T1 and Sennheiser HD800 - works great with them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars very capable, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I own a couple of the PURE DAB Radios, including the high end V2 which they no longer make (it could record shows to SD card). The Revo SuperConnect is a serious bit of kit and the interface side is much better than the PURE device which are sluggish by comparison.

DAB sound quality is excellent and there are options to create your own equaliser setting, which is really worth doing, especially as it can significantly increase bass response over the default settings.

Internet Radio works very well and i didn't have a problem at all, was interesting to listen to some of the rock stations in California - although sound quality is very dependent on the station you choose. I do like how the INFO button will give you all this information, including a reliability rating.

When I plugged this in for the first time it asked for my network password for wifi then proceeded to automatically update the firmware to a newer version which works very well.

Its expensive, but if you value radio then there are so many options to retrieve FM, DAB and Internet stations without much user interaction. Excellent sound quality too, and it goes reasonably loud to fill a living room, or bedroom without a problem. I do suggest you play with the equaliser to get the most from it, as the default settings are quite poorly set up.

I love Yankee candles, although they are very expensive. I actually bought this for my mother as a little pick me up and she was very happy. Beautiful smells too and nicely presented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I run a business and spend many hours a day in a chair. My last chair was great value for money but was wearing out, so as my back was getting sore i decided to spend a little more than usual on a support chair built to the highest standards.

You can always trust the germans for build quality.

When the chair arrived it was completely preassembled, arriving in a 6 foot box much to my shock. It was taller than the poor courier carrying it up the driveway.

There are multiple controls for height, pitch, angle, arm rest height and even lumbar support size and location.

Its an immensely strong chair and while expensive, i feel it justifies the cost. Being 6ft4 and around 18 stone, i wanted something both strong and comfortable.

This ticks all the boxes and a lack of assembly is great. Its built in the factory and put together properly too.

2.0 out of 5 stars A great little smartphone, but very delicate and not built to last, 19 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have owned three of these now. The first one failed after a week, when it would not turn on at all. The second one broke, when the rubber strap snapped when I was out wearing it.

The third one seems ok, although I had to move to the metal strap, and its not particular comfortable. Its a great idea, and works well, but its very poorly built and not at all what I would expect from Sony.

3.0 out of 5 stars a little disappointing, 19 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a decent little box set of tools to work on some laptops and other electronic goods. The upper row of tool heads are easy to access with your finger, as they can be forced upwards, and out of the container without much effort.

The problem is the lower circular row. They need to be all tipped out to be used and some of them seem very tightly packed into the space, so its not easy to remove them individually.

4.0 out of 5 stars well built and reasonably priced, 19 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We needed a new, reasonably compact laundry basket and this one looked quite tidy on Amazon. I was very happy when it arrived, and the size was pretty much what I had expected.

it is well made and easy to carry upstairs and downstairs without hurting your back. Recommended.
