Yes, highs are quite too bright for me right now (with Lazuli Ultra).
With Phi i don't get that.
I will burn them hard!

I'm hoping something was lost in translation. Otherwise I'm picturing things I don't want to picture.

Bass is way better on Phi TC than Phi, even when i close frame too much it is still there not like on Phi when half quanity of bass go away.
Mids have more meat i don't have that felling of "dry" midrange anymore, vocals are way better.
Highs are quit sharp but it ok, after burn in time it should go away.

My new setup has arrived and while I was waiting, I had to build a stand.

Hi guys, hoping I can get some quick help. When using speakers amps to power the 1266, should the 8 ohm or 4 ohm outputs be used? I currently have them hooked up to the 4 ohm output on my amp and it sounds fine but not sure if that’s the right way to go about it. Is one output safer to use than the other for the headphones? Thanks and happy holidays!

Try it both ways and see which sounds better. I have mine hooked up to the 8 ohm tap, but have tried it on the 4 ohm and it didn’t sound as good.

My amp has the same output of power regardless of which tap I use.

How many watts is your amp? I wouldn’t be concerned of doing any damage as long as you do everything safely. I know someone from this forum that is using an amp that’s 250w into 8 ohms.

I got the V281 as Christmas present for myself. It drives the TC's wonderfully!
