A J Santos on Electric Cars Not so Green and Cheap? They Actually Cost More to Run

Comments from various members of our MeWe Group…
Batteries are an environmental disaster waiting to happen - they are likely to need replacing ⅔ times during the life of the car.
Emissions caused by the manufacturing process makes it worse for the planet.
Is Hydrogen a better eco-solution? It’s heavy and needs robust storage arrangements.
Did we know that there’s 20% VAT on Public Charging (but only 5% at home)?
General opinion is that we’re going the right way, but much work needed still.


Mike Shwartz on the Audio Pro Addon C5A Multiroom Smart Speaker

Never mind your Marshalls & your Sonos speakers, this C5A from Audio Pro (Swedish design) takes the prize for audio quality. Take my word for it, I'm a BBC sound engineer! It has internet radio, Bluetooth &  Alexa built-in - and they can be doubled-up as a stereo pair with the app or just a mono multi-room setup. They have 4 preset buttons for your favourite radio stations and phono & 3.5mm line inputs. WiFi or wired ethernet. The speaker is actually stereo for the tweeters only. Position it nicely in the room and the bass is unbelievable! Top-end is crisp too. Really Hi-Fidelity! The app has bass & treble controls if you need them. Very highly recommended. The white one is currently cheapest at £164
