Where can I find PA speakers to check out?

I'm in London UK and need to buy some active PA speakers. I've found lots of shops that sell them but none where I can go in and actually look at and listen to various speakers on display. Can anyone recommend a place?

Will my iPhone be ok with relocating to London?

I'm moving to London next month from California and I'd love to take my iPhone with me. Is this going to work? Will I have to unlock it? Does Apple have any "official" position on this? I'd rather keep it above board in case the damn thing craps out on me while I'm over there.

After second-hand synths in London

Where can I buy myself a lovely second-hand analogue synth in London? It's my birthday, I'm alone, the only way out is to buy a new instrument as a present to myself. Nothing TOO expensive - I'm thinking a Juno 106 or something. Is there any shop that might stock one?

What happens when Sotheby's London changes their mind?

I sent my supposedly authentic Italian music manuscripts to Sotheby's of London (after their music manuscripts expert authenticated them in person in NYC) to be auctioned. After they received them in London, they told me they weren't sure if they were authentic and they wouldn't auction them. Problem is, it's going to cost me a lot to get them back, and it already cost quite a bit to mail them to London. More details within. [more inside]

Inexpensive housing in London

Is it possible to find inexpensive housing in London? I'd like to spend six months to a year in London researching and writing a book. I have a very limited pension income, plus occasional unpredictable freelance writing assignments. I'm thinking shared housing, a room, a house-sitting arrangement is my only hope. Does anyone have experience or suggestions to share--including how to look for housing from the USA?

Options for commuting between London and Cambridge?

What is the most reasonable option for commuting between London and Cambridge? My partner needs to live near University College London, and I'll be going to Cambridge, but not really making any money so the cheaper the better-- if you can quote costs that would be fabulous. I've heard its minimum 30 pounds, which seems steep for a commute...

Heathrow to Bath for two faster than a speeding bullet (train)?

What's the best (fast, not necessarily cheap) way for two people to get from London/Heathrow to Bath mid-day on a Saturday? Our schedule + National Express train schedule = 7+ hours from touchdown to Bath arrival - too long after 9+ hours on a plane! There seem to be numerous "transfer service" outfits for around 120 pounds/carload, expensive enough to make us think more than twice. Is there any middle ground, something equivalent to Airport express (12 person vans w/reservations) in the US? If not, any recommendations for the above-mentioned transfer services?
