Today's paper ad at Metro $300 spent on a single receipt will get you the Nespresso Essenza at $146.25.  A good deal, hurry......... ;D

No comments on Onirio itself?

Not bad, but rather acidic, which has never been my preference.  But interesting nonetheless.

Nespresso capsules are cheaper in most other countries, but it then becomes a matter of whether the savings are sufficient to warrant you lugging them back.  The machines themselves, on the other hand, are usually at least S$100 or more cheaper, but of course are even bulkier and heavier.

How much cheaper, I am not sure but I do know that these machines are very cheap in Europe and the States.  You can ask Audio to check it out at Elements HKG or wait for me in August to find out!.... :)

I was in Barcelona earlier this year and IIRC the Pixie was about S$100+ cheaper.  But the plug is 'wrong'.

Our own Citiz machine was bought in London, dunno the exact saving but IIRC it was also over $100, and the pound was a bit higher then.  Another advantage of London is the plug is correct.  If there is luggage space, you can also consider buying the starter-pack of 25 sleeves of all assorted varieties, and which also comes with the nice ebony storage box, although that is admittedly not very practical (flat, broad and only stores 36 capsules).

if westendboy's deal falls through, let me know i'll buy it.
maybe the human ear isn't good enough. we need measurements, figures, numbers, calculations to tell and convince us what good sound is. or do we have to satisfy an unspoken insecurity??
