    So, anyone got an iRobot Roomba or other robot vacuum cleaner?

    I still have a 1st gen Xiaomi Mi one... :) Sure someone here would give a better answer than me, but maybe one of the newer Roborock ones?

    So, anyone got an iRobot Roomba or other robot vacuum cleaner?

    Yep agree, although I'm not a fan of steaming floors. ie: I'd not trust it on my solid floors. I'd rather just mop them well. And I'd certainly never trust a robot with hot steam in my house :)

    No such thing... Best option is a good vacuum and YOU mop the floors. You mopping them will do it a load better than the mop on a vacuum unit.

    Tado and wired thermostat - need to bridge the wired thermostat.

    OK! And one final point. A lot of people seem to say the valves are noisey, and in bedrooms risk waking them up? I must also admit, the notion that one Tado valve demanding more heat in that room, resulting in the boiler coming, to heat not just that room, but the 3-4 other radiators in the...

    Tado and wired thermostat - need to bridge the wired thermostat.

    Thanks for that. Your account is perfect, and seems to match what I'd understood from others. So to confirm, for me to fit:- 1) Where the current thermostat is (in the hall) with two wires - Those wires are simply joined togethor as the controller at the boiler will now be switching the heating...

    Tado and wired thermostat - need to bridge the wired thermostat.

    This is pretty much EXACTLY my setup, with the existing thermostat controlling the heating by just a pair of wires connected to the boiler or controller? Note: I have a British Gas UP2 controller, which I believe is basically the same as that! So, as regards replacing it with a Tado unit:- -...

    So the 5's appear as their own sound card/audio output device on the PC in question?

    The Bose 50s people mention a hiss... There's also the 20s some people praise.

    Seems there's the 50 too. The 5 is USB, the 50 is a regular 3.5mm socket.

    I mentioned some klipsch 2.1 speakers at one point which are around £200, but there seems to be a lot of talk of a sub buzz/hum. I'll take a look at the Edifiers you've listed... Nice and cheap at least :)

    No doubt very impressive, but unfortunately too big for my requirements, and 2x the price of some of the "junk I'm wanting to buy".

    I can play audio thru my existing (pap?) Cambridge Soundworks system or through my current Home Theatre setup (while its working), or used to be able to play it through my beloved Sony micro hifi system (in my study) before that unfortunately died. I'm aware of the difference in (perceived)...

    Recommend some good 2.1 PC speakers?

    Understood, and I suspect it will sound very good. But the issues against my tick boxes/order of requirements it puts crossed on are: - Going to cost well over £200 - The speakers are large for my study desk. - The woofer is large for my study floor. My list and of importance has practicality...

    Good for you :) For my requirements, I suspect I'll be happy with a good set of reasonable speakers for sub £200... And I suspect from previous experience, a sub in the mix will help.

    Shouldn't be able to hear the sub? What's the point of it then? :) From my understanding it fills in typically the 20-200ish hz range where normal speakers tend to struggle to produce audio. ie: If I turn my sub off on any of my units, I'll hear the difference given the appropriate audio playing.

    Well, my gutt feel is yes... Having had and not had subs on various audio setups, I like what it brings to the table ears :)

    Ahhh... The Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 speakers actually are under £200, and also do have a detachable volume controller which can be placed in a more conventient location - https://www.klipsch.co.uk/products/promedia-2-1-bluetooth Hmmm... :cool: EDIT: A lot of users complain of a buzz from the sub.

    Well, all I can say as a reference, is my little (now dead) 2.1 (actually 4.1) unit sounds fine in the room to my ear, for its purpose :) At the moment the only unit that seems sensible pricewise/spec wise is that Wavemaster Moody. The more expensive Logitechs seems to offer no improvement in...

    Understood... Different people, different drivers/values etc. My study is basically 6ft square, so space and 'tidiness' is at a premium. Hence why smaller, tidy, user friendly speakers rate so highly for me, while they wouldn't obviously for others... As you suggest, it is likely my little...
