    Yes sorry, USB-C @4k is what I meant

    I'm not buying any new apple hardware until they stop their childish spat with Nvidia. Mojave has broken the Nvidia drivers (to focus on AMD) which means that my Nvidia eGPU no longer works on MacOS. Every few years Apple switch focus between supporting either Nvidia or AMD, but never both at the same time. Grrr.

    if i understand correctly it works inline with any GPU that is USB-C enabled though, right?

    sure ok. But the point is that first and foremost you need speakers that will work with the room which means either flat panel, surface / ceiling mounted or something like (but not necessarily) a Sonos solution. In any case, you likely need a wide dispersal speaker. Just putting a pair of regular bookshelf speakers on wall brackets is likely to give you all sorts of problems. The MA50s in a regular listening setup will indeed outperform Sonos etc., but I suspect not in your room.

    The Sonos and MusicCast (and Denon Heos) are designed with this kind of profile in mind. I'm not a fan myself but for such an oddly shaped room I would say it's your best option.

    Items under £3k don't need to be individually listed.

    you do however need to be able to prove you owned them which can be a problem for used and private sales

    Not an expert but if you just want to make an investment then don’t buy a watch. I’d personally use a lot more tax efficient investment vehicle than buying an asset outright on which you incur both income tax and VAT. Sorry that’s a boring answer.

    Here’s my rationale:

    The problem is that warm, moist air is being pulled actoss the room and towards a large cold surface. This cools the air and causes the moisture to condense on the window and wall. What @Cupcakes is asking of a heater is to (a) reheat the air, (b) reabsorb the moisture on the wall and window and (c) create sufficient thermal convection current to overcome the existing downdraft (which is increased by the placement of the fan).

    I just don’t think a little electric towel radiator is going to do that and the problem needs to be tackled at source. But if anything, putting a heater above the window might keep the air warm for enough time for the extract to do its job might be better.

    Another option perhaps is to find some kind of hot air fan aimed up at the window, or even a demister like the electric circuit you have in a car windscreen? Idk if that exists but those might work better imo.

    Edit: just try a bigger fan first ;)
