    There she is!!! I'd be surprised if you don't keep her beyond the two week trial... Have fun!

    I have tried the SR1a recently, and reported back on head-fi my impressions (see here and here).

    I am very much in love of the Abyss subwoofer-like bass experience, and I missed that painfully with the SR1a … however, the RAAL has some very special qualities the AB-1266 can't touch, so they could complement well each other.
    The 600i should have sufficient power to make the SR1a at ease, and possibly I will give them another chance in the future.

    I am seeing the combo AB-1266 / SR1a / 600i quite a bit on the neutral / analytical side, so perhaps a warmer, more easygoing headphone - directly driven by the DAVE - could be an even more compelling complement.

    We'll see!

    Photo bags work well. They have padding, and many are about the right size.

    I was also wondering if there is a cover for the Abyss that somebody has made? I use a glass bell jar for my LCD4s but the Abyss is wider so won't fit. Ideas?

    I was thinking of having 2 x black velvet gloves made, that slide over the earpieces, but let the cable stay intact. Must talk to the wife....

    Looks nice. Mine is satin aluminium finish. Where are the feet? I would recommend putting 4 x aluminium feet with rubber O rings to replace the supplied feet. No slip, and some suspension as well.

    I used these. You need to drill out the hole to fit an M8 bolt, but otherwise perfect fit.

    I have the spikes, but they are VERY sharply pointed, and I did not want to damage my bamboo rack shelf. I am thinking to get some metallic disks to put between the spikes and the rack.

    Very Cool. The 600i is still near the top of my "want to hear" list for the Abyss.

    Hello Joe.
    This stand from germany looks fantastic for the Abyss. I can't find the brand website. Can you help? Cheers

    Hey Guys,

    I purchased a pair of Abyss Phi TC’s recently and they arrived today. This is my fourth pair of Abyss headphones. The original AB-1266, the AB-1266 Phi, The Diana Phi, and now the AB-1266 Phi TC’s. I really do love the Abyss “house sound.” I’m still fiddling with the fit, which is a bit different the I am used to due to the new (to me, CC/TC) ear pads. They fit a bit tighter than with the old ear pads as they are wider. Sonically so far? I am very impressed. I’ll get some hours in and report back with a full review in a few weeks!

    Congrats getting the TC! Every once in a while I think of how much you sold your Phi for and mentally punch myself for not grabbing them.

    Man that seems like forever ago. I have missed having a pair of AB-1266's so much! Any kind. I'm really fortunate to be able to own the TC's now. Thoroughly enjoying listening to them currently : ) :) :jecklinsmile:

    That headphone stand looks so familiar. Please compare the TC to the other phone on that same stand a couple of weeks ago. You know what I mean, right? :)

    Congrats on the new TC.
