Yeah £300 is the limit. My current systems is an Onkyo 705 (had it since 2013 I think) but its failed so need to upgrade. Will have a look at Denon AVRX2400H. Thanks I've currently deciding between this and: Yamaha RXV483 £300 Yamaha RX-S601 £250
If £300 is your budget I'd consider the Denon AVRX2400H from richersounds (if your local has stock), or the yamaha rx-v583 from Peter Tyson. I went for the Denon in the end.
Hi guys, this or the Yamaha RXV483 listed here for £250. Thanks in advance
Yea, many of audiophile, top end guys are listening components not actual music, if you know what I mean. It's becomes hunting for perfect setup, listening room, records and so, rather than joy. That can happen with lot of hobbies.
Thanks, it looks like I need to do some more reading and spend some time in an AV shop to see what suits me best. I hate the 'research' part but hopefully I'll be able to make my mind before all these deals end :) Hobby without satisfaction? Sounds terrifying.
I’m literally the reverse to you dude, have the 2005.3 in the lounge and just bought these to go in the games room XD
BTW thanks op, heat added
Worth keeping an eye on this, they briefly went down to £199 (at which point I bought them) but they have gone back up to £299 now, 2 days after I ordered them.
In that case you may faint when you read this list.
£700 for a set of speakers! XD
Excellent value for money.
Originally came with two sets of 1.2m leads. One with mic/volume the other without. Standard 2.5mm fit to headphones and 3.5mm for audio device. However this seems to only include the mic/volume lead.
Same price on Amazon
NAD is high quality equipment...a lot of people might have never heard of them but they are top brand for those who spend a lot on hi-fi equipment.
Good price. I'll look forward to settling back and putting my NADs on my ears.
But the QC25s won’t play music without the wire :)
I waited for nearly a month as they were back ordered, picked em up for equivalent £228, using Revolut, then sent back my MDR 1000s to Amazon UK (embarrassed) (y) The WHs are just a little bit better at everything I find, and in particular I find the bass to be a bit punchier which is nice as I can tone down my Bass Boost app. Meanwhile my dad is sending back his Beats Studio 3s and looking out for a cheap MDR or WH as the difference in quality at the same price range is just staggering.
You did well to get them for £228 from amazon.de
I got mine approved yesterday successfully.
question sorry? does the 1080 actually do proper atmos? confusing doing research
That's a proper sofa !
Is that a question or an observation?
This better than the Sony 1080
Wharfedale diamond 10.4 for main, and pioneer S-11 surround speakers (just speakers no sub)
Oh wow. Did you get a 12 months warranty?
For anyone interested I have just bought these from JL @ £169.95 and I can confirm they do price match to Home AV Direct which are on sale for £138.00 at the moment. Go go go
Good for you but I don’t. I’d rather know where it’s cheap now or going to be as I live in the now / future not past.
Which means that this is not as good as price as it could be, which is sort of the whole point of this website
I find it helpful to know that elsewhere an item was cheaper a few days ago.
How are home av direct as a retailer? What is their returns policy, anyone any experiences?
Somebody on hukd posted a video of this guy's review already but here are the audio samples of speakers, it so happens that he got a few for bose and anker brand. Compare and see(hear?) for yourself. http://switcher.oluvsgadgets.net Anker seems pretty crap compared to bose, the only one I found better is jbl xtreme.
no i wouldnt trust all the 6400 reviews ;) !!!
Link please, there are several Anker speakers.
It could be better but being a 360 degree speaker, it is difficult to produce heavy bass for it's size. You can however put it in a corner and it should crack up the bass as it bounces off the corner walls fine.
That's very old soundlink mini 1. Massive stock in Southampton store and no buyers :) They should reduce price years ago!
https://m.costco.co.uk/view/p/bose-soundlink-mini-bluetooth-speaker-195540 Costco still have the sound link mini 2 in stock . Excellent speaker £139.99 inc VAT
I've listened to this in store and the distortion on the highs was disappointing. The plus has a much cleaner sound in my opinion if you can afford the extra.
This is my concern but was only after leaving the store did I think about it.. Both salesmen demo'd the speakers to different customers by playing Emeli Sandé - Read All About It, a not very bass heavy, virtually acoustic-like track. Also I did hear a touch of distortion but I would put that down to the sheer volume the Revolve was at to compensate for being in a noisy, open plan store.
So it was never 25% off, the cheeky sods.
Price has now increased to £349 so the deal is over.
Ok, I get it. I never thought of that. Cheers. (highfive)
I use my second hdmi out for my projector.
;) it would indeed
This should be hot, can only imagine it's because there have been several Sonos deals today
With desk stand
Comes with stand
Someone mentioned before on another thread this is the new RRP for this?
So just to be clear, you ordered for £249 from the link and received the QC35 II's?
Rather amazingly, these just arrived..... QC 35 II. Thank you thank you thank you OP. I love you! Christmas gift to me :-)
I’ve got the wired version which is superb. This is an excellent deal. Hea
Cheers mate! Got a Bose outlet to price match :D
Its first sorry . The II is 299 i think
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 :D 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.
Now that would've been too sensible. I'd be surprised if it was much better though. Really made the sound how I liked. I will return with my own CDs to test before buying though. The Marantz 6006 with Dali's lacked depth to me, was too bright. All IMHO. (£280 + £319)
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. :D The Amp itself was £500 so not in the same budget.
Did you compare the CXA60 to something similar in price?
Fantastic Price! Been toying with the idea of a new set up for a while! Very tempting at this price! I Hear great things about these speakers and Marantz Amps never disappoint!
Great price. Good find.
Bose qc35 for 239£ got them today Swindon outlet
Bose QC35, the poor man's Sony MDR1000X :p
I paid £259 for these about 6 months back. They are brilliant to use on planes/ trains to block out the environmental and engine noise. Highly recommended, even though they aren't cheap.
Got mine yesterday for £180 as graded because they were brand new... Just not in the box. Amazing.
£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?
I already have them, was going to buy these soundlink ones as a spare. based on what ive read online though they aren't worth it, so I moved on.
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.
