A quick picture before I put these away into storage for now, as I have no space at home for them. I'm a big fan of the Senso range while there not the lightest Hoover ever made, they are cool with all the lights and talking Audio 300.

Have a few more in storage and the full set of series 1 but I'm still missing a System 30 and 40 from Series 2 and a 100 and 400 from Series 3

In this picture
Series 1
System 1 S3126
System 3 S3132
Series 2
System 10 S3448
System 20 S3718
System 50 S3328
Series 3
Audio 300 S3732
and a couple of one offs S3132 the Electronic 1000 and S3716 TC Tropic with Palm Tree print...

Now if anyone had the blue System 40 I be happy to buy it :-)

Wow, that's quite a collection!

My favourite has to be the one in the middle.

You don't want to know. The language used was choice.

There are four messages all spoken by a posh english lady on mine . The cleaner stops and a chime is heard then a message is played twice based on one of the below conditions

1. Motor Overheating
2. Bag not fitted correctly or bag door not closed
3. Bag full or filter clogged
4. Hose clogged

It was all the rage at the time in other appliances - adopted from Austin Rover's love of digital voices in their SD1 and Montego ranges before filtering down to other models.

the blue one!

What a nice lineup. I would love to get hold of the blue one one day. Still remember those green LEDs. It used to be sold along with an "Electrokinetic Bürste" (=brush) which I loved for its orange bristles on a black roller.
Is this the one with the "Contour" nozzle?

Thanks, but, how does "she" know the difference from a full bag/clogged filter or a blocked hose ? They both cause the same lack of air flow.

I like the white one to the left hand side - looks like a "Malibu" liquor inspired transfer on the machine's front.

The Audio 300...

once featured on BBC's Tomorrow's World science and technology programme. Howard Stableford was using the machine (with the Hoover name taped over). The machine stopped, chimed, and poshly spoke: "Hose is clogged, clear the blockage". He then removed the clog from the hand grip.

He then opened the machine, dislocating the bag. The hoover uttered: "Bag is not correctly fitted."

Supposedly one of the ITN reporters also "interviewed" the hoover. I can't remember if it was Fiona Armstrong or Pamela Armstrong.
