    Monitor Audio Gold 200 vs Acoustic Energy AE509

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to listen to any of them. I don't think the Monitor Audio Gold 200 needs to be introduced. Not many people know about Acoustic Energy AE509. This is a pretty good speaker in principle, received very good reviews, not bad to read about it, it is rated good...

    There are no cheap energy tariffs. Message from Martin Lewis about cheap energy prices

    So sticking to the capped rate is best at the moment.

    Acoustic Energy

    Can someone tell me if this speakers are on the warm side of neutral? I am considering this speakers with my Marantz PM8006 amp. Considering AE in the same price class as the Oberon 5, Oberon 7. Do AE use soft dome tweeters or not. I am confused which driver technology they use. Thanks!

    Energy Companies collapse - wait or switch?

    I believe four companies have now folded, including People's Energy who we were with. Bulb looks like it could be the nest one to fall. My account is in debit for £150 so I'm losing any money through credit. Advice is to wait until Ofgem appoint a new supplier, but my understanding is that...

    People's Energy cease trading

    Our gas and electric bill had gone up recently, so I logged in to check latest bills. Website says that People's Energy are ceasing to trade and Ofgem will allocate a new supplier. Currently have a debit balance of £150, so presume I'll need to clear this before moving. Anyone else with them?

    Why do Hi Fi separates not have energy efficiency ratings?

    I'm on the look out for some kitchen appliances and discovered that the energy rating scale is being changed. So I looked into it to see what the changes are. Apparently its certain appliances initially from March 2021 (such as fridges and washing machines) with a 'phased period' where products...

    Yamaha RX-V4A + Acoustic Energy Aegis EVO 1 = good choice?

    My whole life I've been listening to music and watching movies on my PC with a 25 inch monitor and midrange 2.1 speakers plugged into an onboard audio. Now I have a 55' TV and I started thinking about upgrading the sounds. I still want to use my PC as the source (force of habit). My goal is a...

    Dynaudio Xeo 20 vs Acoustic Energy AE1 Active

    Not considering the wired/wireless and price difference, which of these speakers sound better? I own Dynaudio Xeo 2-s for last year and I love them, however I saved some to upgrade to the next level. Any other suggestions for HiFi active pair under $2000 will be appreciated, especially with...

    Octopus Energy

    Thought this was now worthy of it's own thread rather than tagging on the bottom of the Bulb thread. I switched from Bulb due to them playing silly buggers with DD amounts as documented in that thread. I only use electricity & Octopus came out very slightly more expensive than Bulb. But once...

    How much energy do you use?

    Morning All, We got our smart meters fitted last week and have since been anal about what we’re using and when. What “standby” usage does everyone achieve? I managed 80w during the weekend, that’s with CCTV, router, switch and an access point all running. Also, surprised at how much of a...
