    I had a Marantz CD player, the 63SE, for twenty years. It stopped working eventually, the laser and lens will only last for so long. It sounded better than what I have now, which cost twice as much.

    Got a chuckle over this post Edward. We’ve had this same conversation before in another thread. I think, but deserves a replay. lol
    The Marantz is an 1120. Nobody i hung with listened to am/fm just vinyl. Added a 105b tuner about 10 yrs ago. Then a 4270(beast), etc. The 1170 is sentimental fav and has outlasted everything i have ever owned...except the jacket.
    Be well. Bowen

    I have the trucker in goat. Just with the heavy version. There is also suede, but I haven't seen it yet and I don't know how it is.

    Very nice. I think I will inquire about a trucker in goat, either in goatskin suede if they have it, or simply the rough side out.

    Should I contact Shawn via the website or is there a better way?

    I started the contact via email with shawn.fivestarleather@gmail.com and later via Facebook Messanger https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100008053320810
    And as a tip: if in doubt, explain once more and make sure that your wishes have been understood and registered. Then everything works very well.
    My favorite leather so far: The 1.2 mm thick, semi veg tanned goat leather in dark seal brown. You can also get leather samples by paying the shipping costs. I wanted to do that too;)

    Usually my jacket photos are always in a sunny period , which is 'the norm" here.

    It is NOT always sunny in southern California ( or in this case Perth WA !)

    Some well wintry squalls indeed and max 16C, (noticeably less during the squalls !)

    My swimming pool is full and overflowing ( first world problem I know !)

    Eastman Luftwaffe taking the strain today. Still 61 years of age haha...

    Ha, I think you're right... Lovely stuff, the Marantz. Never tried one of the quad models...

    Taubers of California 50'60s Horsehide police jacket. I've had a few of these. I think I sold all of them. I do have a Taubers trucker, Horsehide shirt and a black HH half-belt. Those three will probably be around for a time.

    Squally winter weather. Who says in never rains in Paradise ?
    Good day for the Schott 740N steerhide Pea jacket.
    Only worn perhaps a dozen times/year in Western Australia, usually of a night !

    Saturday 4th July Harley ride , seemed "appropriate" with the Captain America skid lid.
    Jacket is my Simmons Bilt black goat Nebraska.
    A good choice today , just "warm" enough for a 7C start , not too hot on a 23C ride home.
    Usual 'winter" pattern of 4 days rain arriving tomorrow , 15mm/20mm and on..
    Still 61 haha...

    Do Australian-born folks even understand the concept of Winter? Seems to me there's two seasons down there - nice Summer (which they call Winter), and unbearable heat (which they call Summer).
