Congrats bro, if you're selling any of your old gear. PM me.
I'll have to make a trip down to hear this thing! Congrats again!
I was stunned at how good the amp sounded with the stock tubes in it, I am looking forward to getting the best out of it. Jack told me that he preferred the Cathode plate with the 300B for the Audeze's not sure about the Abyss.
You going Cardas or JPS cables?
I was using the High Z plate with the Abyss and LCD-3's I thought it sounded great but perhaps it was a little hot, I could only get the volume to 8-9 o'clock.
I have been using Nordost Heimdall 2's but listened to the LCD-3's with the Cardas Clear, I bought a set home with me and I am listening to them now, I prefer hem, they sound rich and full with plenty of texture but they still have good detail. Prior to hearing these I thought Cardas sounded a bit dark but I am going Clear for the whole setup including balanced IC's.
I noticed A2A was using the Cardas power cables but I have a Shunyata setup so will stick with that.
I spoke with Joe at RMAF & he said that he was thinking about releasing a less expensive brother to the abyss with a more conventional
headband . No time frame or price has been determined yet.
