    Of course the Moon is made of cheese. Have you not seen Wallace and Gromit, A Grand Day Out?

    Not shown in this pic, but they came with UK power leads & "barn doors" as well.
    Sadly, the tripods do not fit in the bags. :sad:

    Show me a studio lighting system that ever supplied a case for the stand you're supposed to use with a single head unit... o_O
    AFAIK; you pretty much always have to buy a 'kit' case for the whole lot.

    ... will by my third from them :rock: hell, they're decent mugs with proper big handles, and whilst they're still 'free' with a bag of coffee it's be rude not to.

    Indeed it would... but dunno if that coffee would prevent me from using it, if I drank it.

    I ordered from them, they never delivered anything, didn't reply to mails. Got my money back through MasterCard but really annoyed.

    Lemme expand on that - if the coffee is that strong that it rendered me unable to drink any of it past the first cup...

    Hardly splashing out but an incredibly useful device nonetheless. I looked for the dab module for my Tag McLaren but yeah, best not go there.

    So I got that. Mainly for dab but it also adds Bluetooth into the mix which is extremely handy. I don't have to drop my shorts and show my botty either.

    A friend tested them and the Bose. He found sound quality to be about equal(ly good). He's extremely sensitive to noise so the little that is inherent to ANC was more comfortable for him on the Sony, which he kept.

    I have a set of Bose QuietComfort II ANC headphones. I don't know wtf has happened but the ANC has gone to crap these days. It's not as effective as it once was and every now and then there's an audible background hiss. I know there's been a lot of complaints over a recent firmware update, but this was happening before I installed the offending update.

    I'm not too beaten up about it since I didn't pay money for them, they hand them out to all new technical staff in work.

    Yeah, I finally ordered the stuff. Given I don't have a fully modular PSU I'll just re-sleeve the 24-pin and replace the current black-ish plug with a proper black one. The modular cables (PCI-E power x 2 and CPU 8-pin) I'll do completely on my own. Ordered some colours to have options with the highlights I want to have in my cables. First sleeving in years for me, so I got the 100m platinum colour sleeve to have enough spare.

    If everything works out (read: if I learned how to not mess up the sleeving) I'll also treat my girlfriend's PSU to the same re-sleeving job.
