5.0 out of 5 stars Neat, I like it, 14 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really neat, compact and great sounding speaker that's no fuss at all to set up, with the outdoor spec meaning it's great for vacation and chill time by the swimming pool. I wasn't sure about the colour but now I really like it.

Great toaster, fast and well made. It replaced a Dualit which we'd hung on to because it was supposed to be the best. The Magimix is a better toaster and it's really useful to be able to toast long pieces and the warming rack is really effective for crisping up baguettes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unusable, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It arrived with the rubber badly notched because the spring loading had pressed the clamp into the rubber pad. So of course in use the string under that part of the rubber pad isn't clamped.

Very mellow, but I have now switched to the silk and phosphor FX by Martin which for me are prefect.

Really quite effective and being real wax should age quite well. The 'candle' flickering setting is much too fast but on constant light it looks really good. Having no flame means you can have them under shelves, where a real candle would burn your house down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive tone, 21 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
it's taken a while to find the best strings (for my ears) for my Martin 000-28. The usual silk and steel are just a bit too mellow, whereas these have just the right amount of extra sparkle and projection. Expensive but worth it.


Kinsman Wooden A-Frame Acoustic Guitar Stand

5.0 out of 5 stars Fully adjustable, 21 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This not only looks different - much less industrial than the usual black steel type - the rake of the back supports are easily adjusted to accommodate guitars with shallower bodies. Neat.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks just the way it works. Very stable and the back support is adjustable - which is unusual and useful. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blows Bose away, 3 Feb. 2014
This is a startlingly good piece of kit. Solid, well made and a third of the price of comparable Bose products. Unlike Bose, sound shaping is switchable and all three modes sound way better than the bloated, smeared over blown bass, muddled mid range and tinsel treble you get from Bose. And unlike Bose, the Sony's Bluetooth pairing worked perfectly. I tried to get the Bose equivalent units to work on Bluetooth in two different stores to no avail. Even the sales guys admitted the Bose were prone to pairing issues and dropout. Even on the Sony battery (lithium rechargeable) mode you can charge your iPhone or other device, which is a great feature when travelling if you run out of juice. That also means it doesn't actually need a dock, contributing to its clean design. The carry case is nicely made and is included - most other manufacturers charge a lot for their premium cases. This is the first Sony product I have bought in a while and I must say they appear to be trying very hard now to recover customers. Bravo Sony.
