    Where did you hide the 1266?

    BTW, whenever I see Joe here, I think he might suggest another upgrade of the TC. :)

    Sorry here is one with the abyss in it. I actually had the dealer pair on loan until mine came in. That was a photo from before they came in. I listen to the Magico setup most of the time. It is so good. The abyss is for late night sessions. 20190904_225759.jpg

    You may want to do something to protect the $149 headband. I saw a lot of solutions on this thread.

    I am looking for a taller headphone stand. If irest the frame on the audioquest one it will damage the cable. Do you know of a taller stand option? No way I was going to order the upgraded package just to get the stand and bag. You can order the bag for $182 right now direct from copper river.

    I happily use this:
    https://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-Technology-EBA01B-Aluminum-Headphone/dp/B00Y54RXO8

    Placed a felt pad underneath the Abyss frame (in the center) to avoid wearing due to metal-to-metal contact.

    If you have a desk or tabletop or something to clamp these onto, it's a $25 solution from Amazon (each headphone holder is ~$12)

    We had enough upgrades for a while. ABYSS_SMILEY_1266.png

    Woo audio sells a decent stand with adjustable height. Note that headbands from the last 2 years or so are pretty sturdy, they shouldn't stretch out while set on a stand.

    The copper river bag [they certainly make nice bags], ours is customized for the 1266 with some added interior leather and large open pocket. The stock bags have rivet heads inside where the metal carry strap rings are mounted that may scratch the headphone. If you buy one be sure to figure out a way to cover the rivets.

    @Joe Skubinski do you sell the bag seperately?

    The bag and stand only comes with the Deluxe version, but if you contact us I'm sure we can work out something. ABYSS_SMILEY_1266.png

    Hmmm....I contacted you all about buying a replacement stand for my TCs, and the person I talked to said that they would not be able to sell me the stand. In fact, they told me to buy a Woo Audio stand instead. I'm using an Audioquest Perch at the moment, but I really would like to have the official stand, if possible

    Bummer my one and only interest this year was to hear the Abyss TC and try to decide if I need to upgrade immediately. I wanted to hear it first. Will you be there next year? IDK how the #s work out but you did make a sale to me as a result of your presence.

    The TC is a substantial upgrade in sound quality over the pho to my ears. More speed and resolution with better mids.
