154 quid for a CD player! I wonder how much their tape cassette player and wind up gramophone with a horn and steel needle is?

Is there a noticeable difference between this and the 6006? Or is it extras like connectivity? I'd have a PC linked into the same setup so don't need anything like that.

What I love about this deal is you can add a Chromecast or Bluetooth receiver, a pair of decent speakers and a quality turntable and still have spent less than the price of a mid to high end sound bar. And have an order of magnitude better sound.

Dali's were brighter than the Silver's? Surprised about that. Being paper vs metal.

I find the Silver's very deep, good bass. But I think the Dali's are more musical. Drum and Bass I'd be all over the Silver's Did you have the Dali's backed against a wall? That helps a lot with them. The Silver's don't really need that. It will make them boomy.

I too would be interested to know which CA amp you listened to and what extra price is it please, if it has a phono connection I too might be interested

I'd encourage you to order this so you don't lose out, then go visit your local Richer Sounds and see what you think for yourself. My addled ears from years of loud Walkmans (yes, original tape ones) may have a very different perception to you.
The Amp itself was £500 so not in the same budget.

This deal was posted a while back and the earphones had come down to £39 but now they are £29 (black only) well reviewed good looking set of cans.

£29.99 on Amazon. I suggest you read the reviews there before buying. Not good.

These are decent (and also 29.99 in Amazon) but loads of reviews stating there is a design fault and they snap even under light use.

Could this be why they're continually being sold off?

QC35's are so good, take the hit!

Good price, although I don't think Bose premium range of headphones is on-par with other premium brands.

Just returned my QC35 for Sony's offerings (although that's also partially due to a fairly widely reported Bluetooth issue)). Not sure if the BT issue would exist on these, also.

I believe they still make the best noise cancelling headphones - best for noise cancelling, not necessarily sound quality - but not sure why their non-noise-cancelling ones cost so much.

I agree all crapple/bose/sonos stuff is over priced **** however after auditioning this speaker in the store I realised there is nothing that comes close to the bose soundlink mini 2 for size and sound quality. If you are looking for a truly small portable speaker with much larger speaker sound it's the one to get. If you are however looking for something to use at home as a main stereo then you can't beat high end separates and floor standing speakers.



Could not agree more, I'm no great fan of Bose in general but with this particular speaker they smacked ball out of the park. For the size and price this is a truly outstanding speaker.

Fully agree mate. The Dali E-12 F is a proper subwoofer. Agree about the Sonos proposition, however with Chromecast Audio you can now convert any old set-up to wireless and have integration with Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music etc and also multiroom if you need it at the princely sum of £15 per dongle, hence price-wise there are significantly cheaper options out there.

This is a good price for what it is, Sonos prices being Sonos prices. … This is a good price for what it is, Sonos prices being Sonos prices. However, if size and multi-room expandability are not top of mind, I'd seriously look at a 'proper' 2.1 audio system at the price that a combined Play 5 with this Sub will cost you (just over £1000).At this price you can opt for the beautifully detailed Dali Zensor 5 floorstanders and couple these to an Arcam A19 AMP - both these are WhatHiFi 5* recipients and are ca. £1100 at RicherSounds. The soundstage that this kind of 2.1 system will create has to be seen (or heard) to be believed, and yes I've auditioned a few Sonos set-ups as well. The stereo separation, quality of the soundstage, clear separation of highs, mids and lows etc will blow you away. Heated for what is obviously a good deal if you go the Sonos way, however at the £1000-£1500 price point you will be spoilt for choice given what's available out there today.

The Canton is what my old chap bought that I mentioned earlier, as said it blew me away with the sound, I know technology has come on leaps and bounds but it blew the Sony 5.1 system I had a decade ago into a cocked hat.

Too much weight in the bottom end was one of our criticisms of the original model, but the trait is exacerbated in its smaller sibling (hence our eating habits-related introduction).It removes the venom from The Bronx’s Heart Attack American, and only takes things further the louder you play – which, let's face it, for tracks such as this is usually all the way up. In doing so, it loses the detail and texture that makes the guitar and scream so brutal.Read more at http://www.whathifi.com/denon/envaya-mini/review#BjYXmqvlQ04v2Dq6.99

Well I received them on Monday (I missed my delivery on the Friday). They are niiiiiiiiiice. Love the sound cancellation, I had the washing machine on a spin, and my Nutrininja on a blend, and while I could hear them (both VERY loud) I was able to comfortably listen to a Sam Harris spoken word podcast without having to turn up the volume to a high level. I'm used to bass heavy music so the sound was different for me, but after a play around with the EQ I got it to a setting I was happy with and I'm really enjoying the sound quality. Bluetooth is fantastic using the APTx codec and haven't dropped the signal yet. When you place the leather ear cups on your head, it just feels luxury, that's my favourite part.

I ended up losing the headphones and £200 paid back to the customer but luckily Sennheiser sent me a replacement free of charge.
There will always be fakes out there but this QR code business is just a stupid way of verifying, afterall you can always swap a fake set in a real box.
