<h3 class=”subheadMIstyles”>Classic LP turntable</h3>

Vinyl is back — big time. The authentic sound that only vinyl records can bring is more popular than ever.

Music stores once again contain rows and rows of vinyl records. When you get closer, you notice that they are not old record but new ones — U2, Coldplay and many others are releasing their albums in vinyl again.

You may even have an old record collection in the attic that needs a good turntable to get the dust off them.

The Classic LP turntable is a beautiful Piano Black Turntable that will fit perfectly with your home audio kit.

Not only is the Classic LP a great turntable, it is also a bridge between the hits of yesteryear and today’s digital age.

Using a single USB cable, connect Classic LP to your home computer. Load up the EZ Vinyl software and you are ready to begin creating a digital archive of your classic recordings.

The EZ Vinyl Conversion software will guide through the process, step-by-step. In fact, the software can even create a track index with a separate file for each song automatically.

Spare the wear and tear on your valuable vinyl, while benefiting from the portability and convenience of having your favourite tracks saved as digital music files.

A wonderful gift for both old and young music lovers.

<h3 class=”subheadMIstyles”>The FIXR</h3>

The ultimate in portable tool technology for those emergency tool moments.

The FIXR is a pocket or keyring tool that actually has 20 different tools built into it.

Engineered in black titanium-coated, 422-grade stainless steel with a silver stainless steel disc, rotating on sprung stainless steel ball bearings, the FIXR is flat, light, strong and infinitely useful.

Clips to anything and is always ready for use, with the most handy array of tools possible within such a small space. The rotating tool plate serves to protect and keep all the tools safe when the FIXR is not in use, or simply twists with a push of your thumb on its sprung bearings to click definitively into set positions to use the driver bits, nail cleaner, extra sockets, razor-sharp cutter and wire-stripper. So if you know anyone — or you are that person — who likes to fix things but sometimes does not always have the tools, then this is the ideal gift for them or yourself.

<h3 class=”subheadMIstyles”>X4 Plus FPV Quadcopter</h3>

The world’s smallest FPV drone!

We are proud to have been the first in Ireland to have the original FPV X4 Quadcopter, a great little flyer. Now we have the 2016 version in stock.

This is the all-new, super-slick X4 FPV Plus and it is the smallest FPV Quadcopter in the world. FPV is short for ‘first person view’ and it means you get to see what the quadcopter sees as you fly it.

 The look is fantastic and the quadcopter is one of the best out there when it comes to the home drone market.

The FPV X4 Plus comes with 2.4Ghz remote control and the screen is 4.3 inches in size. It records the flight in 720p HD so you can sit back and enjoy your recorded movies when you want to.

The Hubsan X4 Plus comes with a built-in gyro and headless flight mode so your flight can be stable and super-smooth. The headless flight — or as it is known, Intelligent Orientation Control — means it can fly forward in any direction, from any side of the drone. One of the best things about the X4 is the Altitude Hold function, which makes it much easier to get even better shots because it keeps the drone stable while in flight. For someone who loves flying remote controls, this is a must. Not only does it look sleek and beautiful,  it flies as good as it looks — a great big boy/girl toy.
