May I shamelessly recommend you consider KEF speakers? What's better than using the most legendary British speaker manufacturer along with your British AVR!

I'll have a look at the KEF, but at this stage I'm very partial to the Martin-Logan electrostats!

They're on sale for half off on Nordstrom Rack, here: https://www.nordstromrack.com/shop/p...i-lite-cb-boot

Mine should be here next week. I'll report back once I have them.

Everything Big Marcus stated. I've got another pair I've had for a couple of years now. Very Durable and highly recommended. The company also has a great history, read up on how they came into being. Very interesting story.

Fair enough. I really like electrostats, but I find the sweet spot way too small for anything but a single-position listening room. Enjoy the search!

mixed reviews on these Quinn Screwdrivers from watching some YouTube videos but i'm no daily mechanic so I believe these will fit my needs. plus they're blue to match my tool box and they're on SALE!

I was going to ask the same thing. I would hope, that if power is required for operation, that at a bare minimum that a heated seat would be incorporated.

Also picked this up last week.

Since I got rid of the run flats on my e91 I have been worried that a leaking tire would result in a tow bill, so I picked up a little inflator to toss in the trunk.

Mountain HardWear. Wore the jacket to work this morning since it was 36 here. Really light weight, very warm, stretchable & waterproof material on the shell and down fill. I think they discontinued these last year. They were $300. I grabbed this one off ebay NWT for $165-175 I think.
