4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 10 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Post Tropical (Audio CD)
a nice departure from the first album - comparisons with James Blake are fair. But the voice is sublime, even if the tunes are a little less of a hook. 'Cavalier' is the standout track.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 months in - very happy with the Withings Pulse, 10 Feb 2014
Did some research and decided this was the best option as i didn't fancy any of the wristband devices yet wanted something which would do sleep tracking. Very simple to use and impressive battery life. Don't care much for the sleep wristband though and would like the ability to modify data on the website / app. accidentally left it in sleep mode and this messed up my weeks readings. But overall happy and would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars unique, compelling and moving, 31 Jan 2011
"A Life Apart" transports the reader to a world so different from our own that it is often hard to believe that it is within living memory. Patrick is a great storyteller with a unique and heartening perspective on life's challenges.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweeping, soaring masterpiece, 30 Jan 2009
This review is from: Aerial (Audio CD)
I'm always very wary of reviewing anything, especially a work as complex and epic as this, before living with, around and inside it for some time.

For many years Hounds of Love, and especially the Seventh Wave segment was top of the Kate pile for me. Now i am reassessing and think that this just may top it. The sheer range of sound, imagery and emotion here is breathtaking, revealing itself more upon each subsequent audition. As with most of her work she delivers on so many levels, melodic, rhythmic, lyrical and spiritual. One of my favourite Albums. Ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice piece of kit, 19 Sep 2008
I have many pieces of AV equipment and only one video and two audio inputs on my projector and amplifier respectively.

This unit (though one of the more expensive on the market) does the job admirably, with the added benefit of switching the video (HDMI) and audio (SPDIF) simultaneously. The box is solid and well built. Only a few relatively minor niggles. The seperate power supply is a bit messy. The remote is a bit cheap looking / feeling. Finally the blue lights on the front of the unit cannot be dimmed or switched off when in use (this is a little annoying when you are using a projector in a dark room).

Overall however i recommend this unit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice piece of kit, 14 Jan 2007
I bought this before Xmas to transfer my young daughters tapes and CDs onto. It performs well and has reasonable battery life.

Plus points:

Uses standard batteries and SD memory cards (I use a 2Gb card which is plenty of storage)

Easy to load music

Rugged design

Nice headphones supplied (Koss)

Minus points:

A little slow to start up when using memory cards

Navigation a little hard to master for younger children

On the whole i recommend the unit and at the price it is good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, Great Service, 10 Oct 2006
Have had this item for about a year. Slight problem when the pen developed a fault but sorted in an exemplary manner. Trust may provide low cost products but the quality and support is second to none. Strongly recommended.

Gentle and relaxed pace, great photography and strong performances; this film is the cinematic equivalent of a cool glass of chablis on a summer evening.

If you like or own other Windham Hill Piano CDs from the 80s you'll love this. Similar in Style to Liz Story, George Winston etc. Captures Peaceful and Contemplative moods.
