    It makes one heck of a smooth cup a joe!

    I confess. Schiit has changed my life. Because of Schiit I joined Head-Fi I think in spring of 2018. I decided to read Mike's and Jason's forums, the whole 800 pages or whatever it is. That Inspired me to buy a Schiit Magni, a pair of Hifiman headphones from Massdrop, and some Sennheisers HD598SR.

    But what really changed my life: reading all the coffee posts on this and Jason's forum.
    I mean, I became an audiophile in the early 1980's when it was still kinda cool and people didn't sneer at you and kick your dog over it or sic their dog on you or your dog over it.
    Now I've become a coffee-phile. (What is the proper term for that?)
    I can now taste how mediocre such and such a brand is and how good some other coffee is. It turns out LAMill has a location about 5-7 miles from me!

    Welcome aboard. Now, like us, you have two expensive (yet very enjoyable) habits to feed! :L3000:

    @tin-ear id encourage you to venture into DTLA for great coffee. Of course there’s a blue bottle, which I regard with increasing dismay as a good company that sold out and is careening toward mediocrity.

    But Verve now has two locations - the cafe on 833 S Spring St and the new, stunning roastery at 500 Mateo St. The pour overs are typically my favorite.

    I have been going through some vinyl that I have inherited over time and selling off the ones I don't like. I always play test before I sell to make sure I am selling a good product. When I got to the one below I was absolutely gobsmacked by the sound quality. Off the charts good! Huge sound stage with incredible depth. Have any of you heard this (orchestral/symphonic)? Needless to say, won't be selling it!
