Pioneer PD-10-K Super Audio CD Player - Black
Pioneer PD-10-K Super Audio CD Player - Black
Offered by Tribal UK
Price: 174.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but it's not a Marantz!, 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
USB port works well and both USB and CD playback sound good, very clear - perhaps a little too crisp and bright on occasion. Biggest fault is reading the cd's. What on earth is the problem, you put a cd in and it thinks about it, loads it, reads it and crikey knows what else and then eventually what seems an age later it plays it. My old Marantz CD52 is almost playing the disk before the drawer is shut. The unit is minimalistic to say the least (no bad thing in itself) and you don't get a lot of information from the display. Another odd thing is the fact that when you turn on the Pure Audio function the display switches off. The model I received came with a Euro plug so had to put a British one on. Can't comment on SACD but the unit feels good quality apart from perhaps the flimsy cd tray. Ok for just over 120 though.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's foam but NOT memory foam, 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reading the reviews it would be easy to get the impression that this is a Memory foam mattress - it isn't. It's just a big slab of firm foam! But for 60 what do you expect. It remains to be seen how good it is in the long term, however I'll only need it for a couple of years so I hope it lasts that long. The free pillows aren't the ones shown they are just a couple of cheap nasty things that'll probably last a few months before going flat and useless. Delivery was a bit of a joke - estimate was 21st to 24th and could I stay at home to accept delivery! Most couriers give a two hour time slot these days but not theses guys, it was 4 days and don't leave home! As always you get what you pay for and if this lasts a couple of years that's all I want. If you want quality pay 5 times as much and get a Waterlattex matress, now they are good, I sleep on one every night!

2.0 out of 5 stars OK curtains, badly made!, 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to match a pair I already had. Unfortunately these were really poorly made, they weren't cut straight and the stitching was appalling in places. But for less than 20 it really wasn't worth the hassle of returning them and once they're hung you don't notice the faults. Listing says they are machine washable but packet and curtains say 'Hand wash only'. Also they are only 'light reducing' curtains - well aren't all curtains to some degree? These are not as effective as the previous ones I bought for keeping out the light. Wouldn't buy again. Better ones are available for only slightly more money, I know because I have some. Look for Sueno Aubergine curtains they are much better. You pays your money... as they say.

DecoMates Non-Ticking Silent Wall Clock - Color Block (Yellow Bumblebee)

4.0 out of 5 stars Silent and smooth, 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good clear and silent clock. Not quite as bright as perhaps the picture shows but not far off. Quite expensive for a clock with a standard far eastern mechanism (Ikea clocks start at 1.75 and keep the time just as well). However, this possibly has a little more class. You pays your money and takes your choice! Recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and they block the light out!, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a bit concerned at how cheap these curtains were considering they have thermal blackout linings. No need to worry, I'm no curtains expert but they are exactly as advertised. The colour is perhaps not exactly as shown but that's always difficult. Mine appear to be a bit brighter than in the picture but no complaints.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not his best IMHO., 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought the download version for 2.99 which came with the new live album free - bargain! It's good but not up there with 'No more shall we part' or his Grinderman albums. I guess it's all down to taste and this is way better than 99% of the rubbish that's out there now and he doesn't really get recognised for it. No justice.

Trevi 3312 Original Sixty Retro Wall Clock Jade Green
Trevi 3312 Original Sixty Retro Wall Clock Jade Green

2.0 out of 5 stars Colour misrepresented in picture, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought clock because I though the colour was very 60's/70's and it would fit with my decor. Unfortunately it is a very sickly minty green not the sublte grey/green shown. It is extremely cheap and 'plasticky' too. It is no better than Ikea clocks at 1.75. Not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my Lord!, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No More Shall We Part (Audio CD)
In my opinion this is by far and away the best Nick Cave & The bad Seeds album, it just gets better every listen. Standout tracks (if that's possible) Oh my Lord - it just builds and builds and builds, Fifteen feet of pure white snow, God is in the house - especially the last 30 seconds, Hallelujah - sublime. If you are new to Nick Cave this is the one to go for, if you were put off by the lack of the Bad Seeds on Boatman's Call (yes I know they were on it but they weren't obvious) they are back in FULL on this album. One Direction this is NOT. Buy it now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Should be called **ck the week!, 14 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More swearing and extra crudeness from Frankie Boyle. Lots of funny out-takes mostly at Dara's expense. Not for your Granny.

4.0 out of 5 stars This won't appear on Dave, 14 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Usual Mock the week stuff with more swearing basically. Improved, or spoiled depending on your view, by Frankie Boyle being more controversial.
