My Best portable set up in term of Sound Quality to drive Abyss 1266

Source : iPhone 5s as transport

Dac / Amp : Cypher Labs Theorem 720 in copper finish

Amp : Cypher Labs Duet balance amp

Headphone : Abyss 1266

Connection : use Mini2Mini from Theorem 720 line out to Duet amp line in

Sound quality : in term of Sq , this set up is the best sound quality portable set up

I am very happy out the box has so high end sound quality

High : very clean and clear high , I never heard very good clarity in High frequency from my Abyss

Mid : very clear and clean , the best pronounce I ever heard from portable set up

Bass : very clean and detail bass , very good bass impact and very good bass speed

Separation : the best separation I ever heard from my abyss 1266

Soundstage : has 3 D soundstage wide and depth are so good from portable set up


Minus : if Duet has more power than my ALO RX 3 B , would be perfect for SQ and power to drive Abyss 1266
Like my desktop set up

The power now is very good , some times I need more power for some music genre

IMO

Please try it use Brass or Copper
I have two Theorem one in black and one in copper
My copper Theorem sound quality is better , has fuller sound than my black one
I can drive my Abyss without Distortion until max volume
I don't why , with my black Theorem 10 % before max I got Distorsion like clipping
I feel like not enought power to drive abyss

The funny thing with my Copper Theorem no distortion

my point is a bit different. I want to be able to stop the 720 (or any dac/amp) charging my DAPs/phones.

Great results so far, maybe there are companies somewhere with 3D printers capable of printing cases with gold plated brass.

 

Just an example here

 

http://www.shapeways.com/materials/brass

 

Ships in: Raw: 10 business days, Polished: 15 business days, Gold Plated: 20 business days

 

For models greater than 56mm in all dimensions: Add 4 business days

 

Handling Fee Per Model: Raw: $10.00, Polished: $20.00, Gold Plated: $30.00
Price Per cm3: Raw: $16.00, Polished: $18.00, Gold Plated: $22.00
Minimum Wall: 0.6mm (Raw), 0.8mm (Polished & Gold Plated)
Max Bounding Box: 89 x 89 x 100 mm

 

David might be able to help with creating the model for Theorem and/or Duet

 

http://www.shapeways.com/upload/about

 


 

HM-901 + balanced amp card combo really is another great choice to pair with Abyss so definitely check that out once you've got 4-pin XLR to 3.5-mm TRRS adapter

Too expensive 16 dollar per cm cube. Cost more than 3k for dap + amp stack casing

Shapeways seemed to be the only game in town for now when it comes to brass, that's why they could get away with charging almost anything they want.

So far brass should be limited to the nozzle itself for pretty much everyone at the moment, let's wait and see how it goes.

Other than that, who else could craft the cases for replacing the original ones? That might be a serious task to make something out of a block of brass, just look at how much we're paying for FAD 1601 and PF series.

In other words, that would not be an easy job without finding someone skillful in China while keeping the costs down that way.
