    I was quoted Singapore Dollars $2650 for upgrading my Phi CC to TC and that excludes shipping from the local agent here in Singapore. Too cheap........in total after buying the Phi CC for SGD6600, I now need to pump in another SGD3000. LOL...........

    Right it seems everyone agrees. I felt it was a nice upgrade to move to Chord mScaler + TT2 and gave me more resolution and sound stage. I'm pretty happy where I'm at. I know show conditions aren't always ideal but it's also the only place I can run around and hear all of the TOTLs. It took until the Phi to convince me to jump on to the Abyss (in part due to the cost). I've bought blind before like the Focal Utopia (regrets except once I broke spending $4K USD for a HP what's a little more to get the real king Abyss?) So yah. I'm good now. I want to hear them. I don't really feel upgraditis any more though despite all the praise heaped on the TC.

    I really like the TT2 and M-scaler. I want to hear the abyss with a dcs bartok or vivaldi before I spend that kind of money. Right now I am happy with my metrum onyx and Cavalli liquid platinum with the TC. They do really well j with R2R dacs.i might just end up with a pavane or denafrips terminator but I would need to hear them in my two channel setup as well.

    I would love to hear your pavane with them as well. Maybe hifi heaven will let me borrow one to audition. I did buy my onyx from them:thinking:

    Ah, good to know that headphone stand works for these as I have that one. Thanks. May take a little while, but the TC is my next headphone purchase and I had thought I would need a new headphone stand.

    Actually the stock Just Mobile stand will cause the cables to jam into the desktop, it's too short. Our stand is based on this except we machine an extended portion to raise height, change out hardware, etc, etc, so the ABYSS stand is a modified version. We don't sell this stand separately because there are lower cost alternatives as many have shown.

    We will bring in the new German made Rooms Design stand as soon as they can make more than a few, this stand lets you place the headphone on it's frame properly. ABYSS_SMILEY_tiny.png

    According to Abyss.. ONLY the CC version can be upgraded to the TC... I am currently in the cue for the upgrade.

    Can someone please confirm this track gets really distorted at above normal listening volumes... I really like this song and would like to crank the volume.. but it sounds awful.
