    I was in Scotland in January this year and in the Duty Free I got a bottle of Macallan Concept vinyl themed Scotch. I'm not a scotch drinker myself, but my scotch drinking guests have given it high remarks. Recommended if you're travelling through Glasglow (it's only available to international travelers coming through Scotland).

    As Much as I like single malt, and I have a bottle of Macallan as we speak ......its the only expensive single malt I have to use an ice cube with. I usually have mine straight up, but not Macallan. It has to have a few cube while sipping.

    Very Nice! We had planned a trip to Ireland and Scotland next month. We were suppose to leave the last week of Aug and spend 1.5 in Ireland and 1.5 in Scotland. Unfortunately we have had to cancel (push back) the trip. I will for sure look into and purchase the concept. I have roughly 9 various bottles of Macallan at the moment. Thanks for the heads up to add to the collection!

    Nice rig, 3 inch block as well as the Macallan! But I prefer The Glenlivet with my records...... also perfect with the Sassy One as well as Lady Day!.

    These are the best pictures I’ve seen of this deck. I actually like the design/look of it more here than in the official pictures on the website.

    Actually I don't drink much as I did back in the day. And just recent, started taking a nip every now and then. What you see there will last another 4 months. So if I do nip a shot glass full...and that's sipped, it has to have no bite.

    Could someone, possibly user Retrofunk, put me in contact with Mirko Djordjevic? I am interested in one of his RX5000 clones......

    I am aware of the Tribute and have contacted them. Is Mirco working with them now? I was interested in a US source for this which is why I was trying to reach him...

    Oh, Mirko is the one then, he ran Classic Turntables, doesn't look like the site is up anymore, maybe try the number listed on the BBB page ... Classic Turntables Inc | Better Business Bureau® Profile

    I cannot remember when I last posted in an earlier version of this thread, but here is my latest TT setup.

    [​IMG]

    This is my VPI Classic Direct TT with the VPI Fatboy tonearm and recently upgraded feet which are the same as those used on the new VPI HW-40 TT ( the upgrade made a noticeable improvement in the already great bass ). The custom dust cover was made by Audio Shield. I use a MoFi heavy duty record weight ( which is a re-branding of the HRS record weight ). I friend from the forum (Ski Bum) told me about the weight and even though I was skeptical I tried it and was amazed that I could hear the improvement from the standard VPI weight. The cartridge is an Ortofon MC Century and if you look at the back of the TT behind the VTA adjustment turret you will see the top of two small silver pods. Those are part of the Bob's Devices SUT that I use so that I can get good performance out of low output MC cartridges like the MC Century. Bob custom makes a SUT that replaces the standard VPI junction box and thus allows VPI TT's to have a SUT without having to add two more interconnect cables to the phono signal chain.
