  1. What are the general lead times people are experiencing?
  2. Call me lazy but I buy my 10-15yo tokay and muscat from Seppeltsfield in 5L containers and put them in my Seppeltsfield made 4L barrel. (not sure if they still make that size). Done me great service over the last 8 or so years. https://seppeltsfield.com.au/product/seppeltsfield-10---15-year-old-muscat-5l
  3. Not sure if of any interest to people... got it in an email from Sworder. Philip ‘Pip Piper’ was born in 1926 and in his late teens he discovered Jazz and immediately became hooked. His knowledge of the early years of Jazz was extraordinary and he was known for being able to quote who had recorded what, when and where, along with the names of all the band members. He quite rightly established a reputation as a Jazz historian and an expert on the subject. Philip Piper was not only considerably knowledgeable but he also had an eye for quality and scarcity. His reference library is also extensive and contains scarce and difficult to obtain material. A collection of this quality is rarely offered on the market. Boxes containing over 3,800 Jazz Shellac 78’s, Vinyl plus extensive lots of CD’s and Jazz related books and ephemera are being offered for sale. Lots include many scarce and rare examples on the Vocalion and Victor labels plus Brunswick, Columbia and Blue Note and V Discs. https://www.sworder.co.uk/auction/details/A887-the-philip-piper-jazz-collection---timed-auction/?au=919
  4. This piqued a pet hate of mine. All these small businesses have websites/Facebook pages etc with Contact Us, Instant Message. And none of them get back to you, none. Like why have a Contact Us page if no-one is monitoring it. They advertise on FB mostly for god sake, yet don't answer FB Messenger requests for information. It happens, time after time. I get to the point where I see all the small business owners crying that they are going broke and people are not supporting them... and I just shake my head. Here I am, I want to give you my money, but want to ask one question first... Examples are restaurants, service based companies, small boutique food places, small boutique bbq related places, any number of different ones.
  5. Epic night of drinking to celebrate a milestone birthday for one of the guys. 9 of us at Bentley Restaurant. Food was sensational as always.

  6. Cool, we used to ride our bikes up to the winery after it was closed and run down. We had one of the winemakers (now Pauletts winemaker) staying/boarding across the road from us in the day. Penfold St, widest suburban street ever.
  7. Thanks for all the replies... maybe I was a bit cheap on this in hindsight going by the number of PM's. 🙂 Anyway I will work through them in order of receiving, the first one came in at 5am.
  8. The Marantz TT-15S1 is a fantastic TT with a Clearaudio Virtuoso cartridge is a fantastic match. The cartridge alone was nearly $1K from Googling (it was sold as a $3000 bundle). I am only getting rid of it due to getting the S.A.M Aldebaran from Matt and not having the space for 2 TT. I am hoping I don’t regret it! What you see is what you will get. Turntable Cartridge 2 x marble benchtops with Aluminium spacers and all sitting on Vibrapod #5 footings. LED Light for ease of cueing, and dust checking (one of the marble benchtops is longer which allows the light to clamp on) Controllable LED light which can change colours for added effects. (I left it hanging out a bit to give you an idea in the photos, but you can have it towards the back and less noticeable) Viborg Record Clamp More Details https://www.carltonaudiovisual.com.au/marantz-tt-15s1.html Reviews UK and US sites with their pricing https://www.techradar.com/au/reviews/marantz-tt-15s1-turntable https://www.gearpatrol.com/tech/a405052/review-marantz-tt-15s1/ https://www.devotedtovinyl.com/marantz-tt-15s1-review/ In terms of packaging…I have all the packaging for the TT but obviously not for the benchtops/lights etc so am not sure how I would go about with posting it all. So at the moment I would prefer pickup but then that is a whole new kettle of fish with Covid-19, but am sure we could organise something.
  9. Strange, they say they are based in Kentucky, USA but won't send to a US address.
  10. Given that our landed costs for Old World wines is about 2x-2.5x Euro prices, I can only wonder what these sell for in Italy. They must bulk tank and bottle it here or something.
  11. Where are you buying them from? Do they have a website?
  12. You gotta get off-site storage to keep your hands off....
  13. Yeah I put the CdC on par with Dom/Krug and one rung below Salon, Krug CdM etc. Fantastic champagne, that is consistently good.
