Doug Paisley - Starter Home Music Album Review

Gracefully navigating the intersection of folk-rock and country, the gentle-voiced songwriter turns detailed images of domestic tranquility and promise into reflections on disappointment.
For a decade, Canadian singer/songwriter Doug Paisley has turned quiet, specific moments into inquiries on life’s larger struggles. On his 2010 breakthrough, Constant Companion, Paisley used the inevitability of endings to explore understanding oneself, the only possible “constant companion.” For 2014’s Strong Feelings, he mulled death and its uneasy relationship with life, or how their juxtaposition ripples into every wave of existence. And now, on his fourth album, Starter Home, Paisley details the chasm that separates what poet Seamus Heaney described as “getting started” and “getting started again.” These songs examine how the person you are never truly aligns with the person you want to be, especially when you stumble upon a sticking point that’s hard to move past.

Amazon Echo Sub Release Date, Price And Specs

The Echo Sub improves the Echo and Echo Plus sound quality with 100W of bass. It can also form part of a 2.1 sound system since you'll also be able to join two Echos as a stereo pair. Here's what you need to know.

Amazon has announced a range of new Echo devices, plus several 'companion' gadgets which work with them. In the lineup is a wireless subwoofer called the Echo Sub. 


It's what Echo fans have wanted for a long time: better sound quality. Rivals have achieved this without resorting to a separate subwoofer, but are larger and more expensive. For example, the Google Home Max sounds great, but costs £399 and takes up more desk or shelf space than an Echo.

Amazon Echo Sub release date
The Sub will go on sale 11 October but it's available to pre-order the moment it (re)appears on the website.

Amazon Echo Sub price
The Sub costs £119.99 / US$129.99 if you buy it separately. There's but one colour: black.

But if you don't have have compatible Echos, or this is your first foray into Echo and Alexa, a bundle deal including two second-gen Echos and the Sub costs £239.99 / US$239.99. That's £60 less than if you bought them all separately.

There's also a new Echo Plus, and you can buy a Sub bundle with a pair of these for £299.99 / US$329.99.
Amazon Echo Sub release date, price
  • 6in woofer
  • Works with 2018 Echo Plus and second-gen Echo
  • Doesn't work with Echo Dot
The Sub offers 100W of room-shaking bass from a down-firing 6in woofer. It must be paired with a second-gen Echo or Echo Plus, a simple process that’s done wirelessly via the Alexa app.

Sadly, it doesn't work with earlier Echos, including the first-gen Echo, Echo Plus and Echo Dot. Nor is it compatible with the Echo Spot or Show or the new Echo Dot 3.. 

Stereo pairs are a great new feature for the Echo. Apple recently introduced this for the HomePod and now Echo owners will be able to do the same. Adding an Echo Sub and two compatible Echos means you can have a 2.1 setup.

To be clear, you don't need two Echos: the Sub works with just one Echo as well.

The Sub is 202mm tall and has a diameter of 210mm, so it should fit comfortably in just about any room.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Dell XPS 13 (2019) vs Dell XPS 13 (2018)

Can Dell make its XPS 13 laptop any better? Well it's tried with a new 2019 model so we compare the two and explain what has and hasn't changed.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) Or Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
There’s a new XPS 13 in town but you’ll struggle to justify the upgrade from 2018’s model with namely a new webcam as a headline upgrade.
Sure, there are other upgrades to the the core specs but for most people, these will be fairly insignificant. The inclusion of a cheaper Core i3 model is particularly interesting.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Huawei has updated its budget Android phone for 2019. It’s faster and better than before, but should you buy it? Read our review to find out.
Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.
