    If it is Sidamo there should be a distinct fruit like overtone to it. I could drink that stuff all day if it would not keep me up all night.

    African coffees are some of the best in the world. What was your perception of Ethiopian coffee before you tried it?

    i had not formed one, clean fruity taste nice. although I'm a fan of velvet butter

    I find African coffees are brighter and fruitier, and Latin American ones are more staid, but obviously the individual microclimates and production methods matter more than any broad generalization.

    ...so, I'm getting somewhat impatient with the CD Transport wait. I gotta believe SOMETHING will be released before the Christmas 2019 shopping season (November, no?). I've been ogling other models. Cambridge Audio, anyone?
    Steve G. posted an odd episode of the Audiophiliac... about tweaking and modding transports. I might hit up an electronics swap or flea market and seek one out...

    Nah. For me... Peru for the win (it's finicky to roast with a frying pan; however, the cocca flavours are evident and turns my crank :ksc75smile:).

    An interesting 5 minute video, pity it took 30 minutes :confounded:

    I have not checked out the video but I love the comment, well said Jimmers, as always.

    I've had some pretty good Kenya AA in the past too.

    For those short on time: 3 pieces of strategically placed Dynamat and a heavy book on top of the transport. Other tweaks are theoretical and could make a difference but they haven't actually tried it yet. You're welcome. :D

    Yeah... I noticed that. I'll modify a high voltage device AFTER I've learned some more electronics (post career).

    Paul Rigby?
    That's the guy who wrote in a USB cable review:
    "... Normally, when you push music through a USB cable, the data, which arrives in blocks, includes narrow bits which represent the high frequency portions of the final music. Within current USB cables, these bits are largely lost because the cable isn’t fast enough to cope, the sampling continues but the narrow bits are largely ignored because they are seen as errors. ..."
    :astonished:

    I think maybe he should leave technical descriptions alone.
    It doesn't mean you can't believe that for the 6000CDT:- "The leap in quality was quite shocking"

    I'll be interested to find out about the Schiit CD transport :thinking:
