Philips AquaTouch AT896 Wet and Dry Shaver by Philips
I bought this shaver to add/replace what I thought was an identical shaver I bought last year. However, though it looks the same, instead of taking 1 hour to recharge it takes 8 hours! This is a pain. The shaver is OK otherwise, but do note you do not get a carrying case. I had noticed this and can use the one from last year's purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing!!, 4 Oct 2013
The singers, orchestra and performance are superb BUT some technician has decided to alter the original recording sound. I downloaded some MP3 tracks a year ago and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sound. Unfortunately the joins between the tracks were poor so I decided to buy the 4 CDs. As soon as I began to listen to the opening I felt the sound was 'bare'. I then played the album and compared it to my downloads (which was easy as I have a twin CD player). The sound was so different. The CD's acoustic was 'dry'; the balance of the singer(s)/orchestra had been changed. The 'ambience' had disappeared. It was as if a 'photoshop' technician had looked at a 'Monet painting'… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A Solti gem, 3 Jun 2013
The sound quality of this disc is excellent. A lovely performance from all concerned. Solti displays his usual dynamism and yet the performances are warm and involving.
