Some £200 later (yup, that was a wedge and a half), I ended up with these.
I am going to muse about them, but they are in another country………..safely stored…………so they will just have to wait for a wee while.
But here is the moral of the story – if you want things as soon as they come out, then be prepared to pay a small fortune. If you can wait, you will be better off for it.
