I have not followed the Regional Releases in a while but this is enough to make me reconsider. I favor PLs and this size as well. If you break the box, please post notes.

I'm selling my one-owner Oppo BDB-83 BluRay player. Minimal use. To ensure flawless operation and best picture quality I just sent this into Oppo for an upgrade to the new tray mechanism and the latest firmware. A+ clean bill of health. (receipt included) As close to "as new" as it gets once the box has been opened. This is one of the best BluRay players on the market, and has the AnchorBay video processor chip (normally found only in $5K+ players). With...
I disfavor unnatural sweater bourbons, and do not care for MM. I find MM cloying in some respects, and have a strong preference (for a cocktail bourbon) for the likes of Buffalo Trace or Weller 12. For mass produced bourbon, Knob Creek is higher in proof and therefore more suitable for cocktails and should have some of the caramel notes many look for. The best Manhattans, I must insist, are made with Rye, not Bourbon, and the best Rye Manhattans I have had have been...
I have a Nikon D5000 with two lenses that I purchased new a year+ ago. All boxes, manuals, etc. Here is the combination: D5000 + 18-105 Nikkor (Nikkon) Lens http://***.amazon.com/Nikon-D5000-18.../dp/B00267S7TQ 55-200 Nikon (Nikkor) Lens http://***.amazon.com/Nikon-55-200mm..._bxgy_p_text_b Lens protector: http://***.amazon.com/Tiffen-52mm-UV..._bxgy_p_text_c Nikon Deluxe Digital SLR Camera Case (Bag) http://***.amazon.com/Nikon-5874-Del...0942293&sr=1-3 Camera...
I plan to use the Oppo in connection with a MacMini set up and external drives. Will post more details later.
I recently ordered my new CDP, which should also function as a DAC for a computer based system that I'll (finally ... one of these days) set up. Incidentally, it's also my DVD player. Read up on the specs of this one -- the parts are amazing. I suspect modders will find something to do with it, but from what I know the design and parts are stunning. Two Sabre 32-bit DACs. Very serious gear. http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-95/ The balance of my system...
A four-pack of fresh Pliny the Elder, a few bottles of Carmen Rodriguez Caro Dorum Selection Especial, and some Riedel tasting sets to flesh out the varietal specific collection.
SOLD Unfortunately these do not run wide - lest I would have kept them. Very svelt last. Am searching for this same / similar shoe in 10.5D. Picked these up from a fellow SFer -- I love the shoes, but need a 10.5D in this last. From the original thread: "Saks Fifth Avenue Private Label brown Suede punchcap derbys, 10D US. Sleek and elegant last with a slight chiseled toe, reminds me A LOT of the EG 888 though slightly roomier in the toe. Same medallion as the C&J...
A belated post of my fist three cigars of the new year: - An H. Upmann Tang Monarcha (2003) (special production for David Tang of Pacific Cigar) - A '98 Cohiba Siglo IV (from La Corona) - A '01 Cohiba CCE (from the La Corona factory) Phenomenal -- each and every one. If you have anything close to the age statements above, give them a try.
Suede Car coat or similar style suede jacket. Size M or L (translation ~ 42R).
