Re: What have you just bought?

Hoping to buy a new mattress. I've been looking at a Simba or Emma. Simba is looking better but more pricey.

We looked at those and also rem-fit and Otty

Picked up a refurbed otty from the manufacturer on eBay for just under £200

Great mattress and would highly recommend if you’re looking for a mattress on the firmer side

Re: What have you just bought?

Just bought my first ever Soundbar/Sub for £120 from Amazon Italy, seemed like a bargain as the UK price is £250, hopefully it won't be too big and will sound ok on voice.

We have bought a few things before from Amazon America as they are so much cheaper over there then they are in Blighty.

Re: What have you just bought?

If it's electrical and from the USA make sure it's suitable for use on our mains ~230vac

Most electronics is universal (100 - 240vac) these days but other things may not be.

Google Translate should turn it from Italian into English for you SnoopZ.

Re: What have you just bought?

If someone in the know can tell me the best way to connect it up for use with a PS4 Pro, Amazon Firestick and Virginbox that would be great as i am clueless if i can do it with just one cable from the Soundbar to the KS9000 TV, the model is HW-R450.

edit

I'm guessing probably a Digital Optical Cable is the way to go?

Re: What have you just bought?

A couple of vinyl records to add to my collection.

The Beatles Abbey Road and the White Album. Both are the recent remaster for the anniversary editions.

Nope, not planning on blasting sound out I just want better speech as modern TV speakers are rubbish which are not good for my hearing aids.

Speakers won't be on the neighbours wall.
