    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    @paradoxper you mentioned a convolution filter EQ was coming for the TC in the Audeze LCD 5 thread. Can you provide any more details? Who is making it and where can I try it?

    You keep misunderstanding the point of that experiment. You are supposed to listen to the track at your desired level, or what you would consider around maximum level for you. If, at that point, your amp clips, it shows you need something more powerful. Nobody said anything about cranking it...

    I don't understand how he is so confident about this stuff. Here's the possibilities...either he has beyond human level hearing ability, or maybe the power in his house just has some major issues that dramatically impact his sound unlike any other, or...he's slightly delusional. If I leave my...

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    I have, on occasion, used the balanced out to drive my Klipsch Cornwall speakers. Never had any issues, but didn't really enjoy them out of the TT2, either. They were too polite.

    Are you wearing a tinfoil hat, covering your earhole antennas, right now?

    Do you have imaginary friends that sit around you while you listen to music and come up with this nonsense? Cover the Hugo 2's open ports to improve sound quality...that's next level delusion if you can think you can tell the difference in SQ. Have you heard of a blind test? Might snap you back...

    I think he believes every thing he writes...which makes it even more concerning :yum:

    I see you have the fenestrated earpads (from Dekoni?) on them. Those were my favorite and I really felt like they took the Susvara to the next level with details and soundstage, while not interfering with the bass much.

    Make sure the wife and kids are asleep too, that helps keep the noise floor down.

    Not quite, the problem of RF is much easier to deal with on the mTT2. I am running both off quality LG batteries and my input is TOSlink, so I'm completely eliminating any RF from even entering the system. A few batteries set me back about $200, that's nothing in comparison with WAVE BNC cables...

    Each time I consider upgrading to the DAVE, all this talk of over the top BNC cables and power supplies turns me off.

    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    You seem to have trouble understanding that a volume level you can tolerate and enjoy might not be a universal fact that applies to everyone. And when we're talking about amps clipping and what loud is, it's important to establish a baseline first with an actual db value. You seem to think if...

    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    Yea, it's not. It's just that you listen at a low volume. This discussion could benefit if you list some actual data, like the volume level you find to be loud. I'm guessing it's a lot lower than what I would find loud. You do understand that is the big factor here, right? If we can't even agree...

    That's only because we read it and don't just let it slide. Just ignore and move on.

    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    Everyone is entitled to their opinions and @801evan seems pretty convinced that he's done enough of his own research to come to his conclusions. I appreciate another viewpoint even if it's contradictory to popular opinion. Maybe there are some here who listen to music at reasonable levels and...

    HiFiMan Susvara

    Agree, the quality of bass (esp sub bass) on the Abyss is not audiophile level. There is plenty of quantity and punch and doesn't bleed into the rest of the FR, BUT, the Susvara and some other planars I've tried extend lower much more accurately than the Abyss. The Abyss has fun bass, not...

    This has nothing to do with the Stealth and everything to do with your chain and power connections. The Stealth is just playing what's being fed to it.

    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    I bought the Stealth for use in the studio when tracking and mixing - but they're so good that I just use them for most of my music listening. They ended up on my work desk where I spend most of my day, instead of in the studio. But, the few times I did use them, they were great. One of the...
