    As tiny as possible ;)

    It may be possible to push the bubbles out, depends how the wrap has been glued. If the glue isn't covering the shell and wrap 100%, it may be possible to push air bubbles...

    As Eric says, think about what you really want then look out for something close to it second hand. The downside with buying second hand is that you may have to compromise on finish or configuration...

    Good call on Bluetooth being the problem RD24, it is most likely the cause - I notice there is about a half second delay when playing from my iPad via a Bluetooth widget to the hifi.

    Found a bunch of Gibraltar hardware on Ebay that was too good a deal to turn down:
    - 4 Multi clamps and 2 super multi clamps
    - 10hinged memory locks for the 1.5" racks.
    The lot cost £100.
