    I may be looking for another one of these. I really miss it. Does anyone know the current wait time?

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

        Well,  I guess I would have to say I agree more with this post compared to many others here, being a previous owner of the Abyss that is.

    Don't notice any SQ improvements.  I just want to make sure I don't have any power issues..

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

      You really don't need it.  I never used one, I used a lot of SS speaker amps with headphones including the 600i.  Time to find your DAC and enjoy the music that amp will put out.

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

      WOW you are going to have a hard time deciding what stays and what goes.     The 600i is just a beast of an amp no doubt.  Lumin D1 vs Aurender 10 + Analog DAC is going to be interesting..    One of the main point for me is with the Aurender you can change out DACs - with the Lumin it's...

    R2R/multibit vs Delta-Sigma - Is There A Measurable Scientific Difference That's Audible

        I understand the point you're trying to make.  However, IMO TotalDAC is not a good example.  It's a very good DAC don't get me wrong, but at the 10K mark I don't think it will win any price per performance awards.   Schiit and the Yggdrasil will most likely hold that title.  What they...

    The Stax Thread III

      Just buy directly from Justin if you want the Black.  I think he has the current model in.  Also owning a pair of Mk1s is worth it as well IMO.

    The Stax Thread III

      Nope.  Both are LLMK2T     One is Solid State and one is tube.  I talked to Alex in depth about this.

    The Stax Thread III

      If it's a current Black MK2 with a high SN - I would get those. They sound pretty good.  However, if you like a brighter style headphone you might not like either.   I have 2 pair of the MK1s one with the SN of 705xx.  I might be willing to let it go.

    Right - that's the only way to get it to the headphones sure..  Also right you can't have one without the other.  However, you can have more of one than the other.     Also when we think of current / power hungry headphones surely the HE-6 is at the top of the heap followed by the Abyss - of...

    High End DAC Recommendations

    @RubenV it will be interesting to hear your impressions.  I always wanted to get one of those DCS DACs in my place so I can hear it on my system.  So I will live vicariously through you on this one.

    REVIEW: Comparison of 5 High End Digital Music Servers - Aurender N10, CAD CAT server, TotalDac d1-Server, Auralic Aries, Audiophile Vortex Box

    Lets not confuse gain (volume knob) with power and or current.     You could an amp that's rated at 100 watts per channel but has very low gain, and an amp rated at 25 watts per channel but has very high gain.  Most will think the 25 watt amp has more power just because you couldn't go too far...

    The Aurender N10 is in "Da House"  Really cool piece of kit I must say.  Sorry to say however, it's going to take me way more than 30 seconds to evaluate the sound quality.    So far I love the coolness of it, adding it to my network was easy, the user interface on the iPad is great.  Added my...

      I'm not knocking your beliefs, some of us just have different ones.   For instance, you put more stock in the computer playback machine (the source as you call it) than I do.   I put more stock in: 1st, the recorded material (I call this the source). 2nd, the DAC.   Recorded Material...

    This sticks out the most..   "What I will say in closing is this, given the choice of a Mac Mini, TotalDac d1-monobloc and HE-1000 versus an alternate setup consisting of a CAD CAT, Schiit Gungnir Multibit and Sennheiser HD 600, I would choose the latter."

    Thanks to @romaz I have an Aurender N10 coming in for a home demo.  It should be here early this week.  I'm not sure I agree with everything, nonetheless - that's a great review.  Thanks..
