    And once you get the 23r you won't have reach nirvana until you try an egosita 845. Once you get that you'll need at least an AIC-10. After that comes wa33. Then you decided you need to "go back to basics" and get an ahb2. Then you decide you want tubes again and try an angstrom strella. Then...

    Diana: the second release by Abyss Headphones!

    SO as you get higher up the ladder there are more componants to fit, but I still feel like there are inordinantly few small dacs tbh. Some other ones to look into (that I havent heard but came up in my own search, so take with a grain of salt) ranging from 2-10k used are the Cos C2, Ayre BQ-9...

    Diana: the second release by Abyss Headphones!

    2k is a very weird dac market. I would see if you can bump yourself to 2.5k so you can get something like a used sagra or morpheus. Unfortunately there is just less and less small stuff as you go up in price. Ive had the same issues on my hunt as well :/

    Diana: the second release by Abyss Headphones!

    This is exactly how I describe sus vs 1266 as well I didnt realizer you were ever a stats guy tbh. Mind if I ask what you thought of the T2 vs other high end enegizers (assuming you heard any and didnt just blind buy a T2 to start your stax journey)

    Quick Impressions: Abyss Phi TC, ZMF Verite Closed, Stax 009 & Sennheiser HE60 "Baby Orpheus"

    I think you misunderstood why he said that. Obv a 4.5k can is not a traditional "starting point". I think he more of just meant that it would be a much easier transition from conventional drivers due to the way it is voiced as compared with something like a 900

    I was going to the same for me but making the susvara bigger and airier stage wise, but the more I think about it the more I think thats actualy a pretty damn similar can to what you are describing

    So DTC needs super conductor to compete with stock cabled 1266 TC? Doesn't that make 1266 tge cheaper option? Edit: makes them the same price. How exactly does DTC + upgrade cable conpaire to stock cable 1266 TC according to yall?

    Diana: the second release by Abyss Headphones!

    you misunderstood what I meant. I meant I didnt think DMS had talked about Diana TC. I dont think he would work at abyss if he didnt like the cans

    Diana: the second release by Abyss Headphones!

    FWIW, I dont have my DTC in yet (should be here friday!) but Diana V2 stage was greatly affected by fit. By adjusting the pads and head band to allow for a small air gap it was possible to pretty drastically increase stage (still not 1266 level but at least utopia level) and give it a bit more...

    Dethonray Honey H1 - USB DAC/AMP

    Glad you got it working! Fwiw the h1 just plugs and plays in almost anything. AK daps are super versatile but not the most intuitive on the other hand (imo at least)

    Dethonray Honey H1 - USB DAC/AMP

    you mean you want to use the dap at transport? If so plug the dap into the honey using USB and then select USB output on the dap. Shouldnt need to do anything more than that

    HiFiMan Susvara

    yah, im local to TSAV. 009S are super nice but im not sure they are enough to convince me to switch all the way to estats (which would probabaly entail a BHSE at the minimum and a T2 more likely). More than just "switching to sports cars" I think its far more like owning a few fairly modern...

    did you figure out somewhere that has one on display? Or just trying someone you knows? Because I wanna demo the shang sr super bad (to see if I should make the estat jump) but I cant find anywhere that has one on display anywhere in NA
