My Desk top rig is nearly completed after two months of non-stop spend. Just a few more tweeks to be added.

They are Nordost Kones.....

 

The more revealing and sensitive the component, the better rewards sonically that can be achieve using resonator feet underneath the said components. They really clean up the sonics......

 

Highly recommended!

i get the idea of minimising vibration for a turntable, CD player and a transport but an amp? the studio 6 looks like a pretty big and heavy headamp. what's wrong with the isolating feet that came with it? is it even stable sitting on those cones?

That's a whole can of worms right there. Fwiw, with tube gear, there's the issue with tube microphonics which is one of the reasons why an amp might need to be kept vibration-free. With ss gear I'm not so sure, but my cardas blocks work on my mjolnir (but not so noticable with my gungnir).

Point?!?

 

He is waiting for his pair of the Abyss to arrive, pretty self-explanatory in the post, and have two great amps and source for the Abyss........

post #777 of 1468

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I like to use cheap amps with the Abyss because it gets people all bent out of shape.

Now that's the kind of rig I want to see people using the 1266 with.

yep. if you've got Frankenstein's monster you might as well have the volts for the bolts. no point trying to drive a six inch nail with a tack hammer as the ol' man used to say. wink.gif

First day of the 2013 Manila Hi-Fi Show just ended. I brought the Abyss to the local head-fiers.

 

 

 
I call this piece, "Faces of the Abyss"
