    Playing it loud, sounds clean to me

    Interesting... You have a Cayin iha-6 right?

    Can you go past 12 o'clock in high gain with out distortion? Especially around 43 seconds into the song?
  3. tholt
    I used to. I use an ampsandsound amp currently. This song is totally clean, I've cranked it, no distortion or clipping at all at any point.

    Care to share how much they are charging in the States for the upgrade?
  5. JLoud
    $1750 was the price I was given.

    As much as I loved the CC, the TC is worth it to my ears. Just be prepared to look at your upstream rig a bit more carefully as the TC are that much more transparent.
  7. Litlgi74
    Me too.

    I agree the TC is definitely more revealing than the CC. I also feel the upgrade was worth it. But your mileage may vary. The CC is a wonderful headphone in it's own right.

    Sell the CC, and buy a new TC.
  10. Litlgi74
    I've had no luck with that.

    Based on what I've seen on the used market, upgrading is unfortunately the cheaper route.

    Unless you're selling to someone who simply doesn't know enough (is not aware the TC exists) I think you're going to have heavily reduce the price selling second hand right now. I've seen a lot of CCs for sale recently, not touching them unless extremely deeply discounted. Suspect upgrading is the better path for existing owners.

    As soon as you received the TC, you already loss at least 20% from the price tag.

    So it depends (discounted CC+$1750 vs discounted upgraded TC). Anyway, it is a very small and focused market.

    Hey folks, how are you guys connecting to your speaker amps? Is there more than one option? Also are there certain specs in an amp that limits it’s use with the abyss, i.e too powerful of an amp? 150w @ 8ohms, 210w @ 4ohms?

    I just got a XLR to speaker tap adapter from Ted at Headphone Lounge... He was very easy to work with and I received it in less than one week.
    As far as your amps power... It should work just fine... You'd be at 37 watts @ 32Ω.
