I love Mahler and the natural world so his history of writing the landscape into his music could only be interesting for me!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not up to the quality of earlier Oregon Scientific products., 25 Jun. 2015
Good in parts.
The good bit is the projection which is a lovely colour.
The bad bits are more numerous.
Firstly it is nowhere nearly as well made as Oregon kit used to be, I have a early weather station and an early projection clock which are much better made. The second projection clock of theirs I bought did not last as long before the projection stopped working.
Secondly the time synchronisation doesn't work if the clock loses contact with the outside thermometer (!) I found this after a power cut, when the clock didn't resynchronise. I thought it was a fault but when I reported it to Oregon service they gave me a long-winded procedure to get it synchronised again involving putting the outside temperature sensor right next to the clock. This worked but the second time it happened I was so annoyed about this stupid bit of functionality I just went back to the old clock, but eventually I tried again since I prefer the big blue to the small red of the older one. This time the time is always one hour fast, Euro rather than UK time.
I am not going to buy anything by Oregon again, their quality is not what it was and their price is premium.

Lovely book, expensive to import though, the VAT was reasonable, the shippers (Parcel Force) handling fee excessive IMO.

Kathleen Ferrier is my absolute favourite singer. Her Kindertotenleider is my absolute favourite performance. Perfect.
"Historic" sound quality. Which means much, much better than most dynamic range compressed recent releases but not as good as CD was 10 and more years ago.
