Had some fun at my friend's today trying the Abyss on the Studio 6 sourced by the Lumin, and a very nice sounding combination indeed.......................
We are both tweakers, and originally he had the Shun Mook diamond resonators underneath the Studio 6 and it sounded a tad slow with a slight smearing in the upper mid/ lower trebles....We changed the Shun Mook out and inserted Nordost Kones and immediately the smearing was cleaned up allowing more vibrancy to come through.
I think many will be happy with this combination, and enough for my friend to take steps in buying a pair of the Abyss. For him, he says that the Abyss are the best Headphones he has heard and probably betters a Stax set up. That, the bass performance on the Abyss is unimpeachable, and the preciseness and realism of presentation is unmatched.
I, of course concur with his thoughts.....................
Apologies for the poor phone pics :(
Lovely impressions! I tried the Abyss with the Studio Six in a shop a few weeks back and I didn't like it... Then on the way home the store manager texted me, they had the tubes in wrong... haha.
