    Saw your sig, how do the XI and Audio-GD amps compare?
     
  3. GU1DO
    Eleven XI has a darker background but that's it , the Audio-GD Master 9 is more neutral , more powerful , more transparent with better details , and have way way better sound stage , tbh i dont think the Formula S should be sold as reference amp , it is colored amp , beside that the price is just a rip off compared to the Master 9

    Ok, so I am officially in love with the 1266. Can anyone tell me with the original Diana is more of a companion headphone for the 1266, or like a 1266 lite in acoustics.

    @Olumm my opinion is Diana v2 is a great companion to 1266. The sound is very open, great imaging/soundstage, smooth but still detailed. It is a phenomenal all-around headphone when 1266 is the system reference.

    From my perspective all amps are colored in various ways, it's more a question of what grouping of colors best suits your tastes.

    From my experience I know I personally would not like the Audio-GD, been there, done that. Good to hear though that you found your fav. ABYSS_SMILEY_1266.png

    Just out of curiosity... What is there not to like about his description of the Master 9?

    We're always looking for good amps to recommend and have tried all kinds with our headphones, as well as inspired many to be made to mate. The differences in sound as described would require an amp to go toward the brighter side of overall tonality, but hey like I said if that's what you like I'm cool with that.

    My 1266 phi/cc with the XI Broadway is awesome. Trying to convince myself that the Formula S won't be that much of an upgrade...

    Could someone tell me the difference between the TC and CC and which is the latest version?

    My full TC review will be out shortly (next month) on Headphone.Guru, but in short, improved detail extraction (very much now in-line with the Stax SR-009), dynamics and sound staging, but still retains everything that I loved about the Phi CC, just better across the board to my ears.

    I’ve been enjoying my Diana Phi powered by Sony DMP-Z1 for several months and the issue I have now is nothing else in my collection of headphones sound good. I also love IEMs but they don’t come remotely close in performance to DP. If you get 1266 or Diana Phi, be prepared to be disappointed by the other headphones you used to enjoy. Now I am slowly listing all my headphones on eBay. ABYSS needs to make an IEM and I’ll be all set.
