Abyss 1266 tc review by Kyle of Den-FI

"The Abyss 1266 series has always interested me with its uniqueness. The first time I heard the original 1266 was at a meet, shortly after it was released. I was told the pads need to float but my initial reaction was, “Is this it?” I think the pads floated too much though, as there was next to no bass extension and a gigantic upper bass lift. Beyond the bass, the midrange sounded cavernous, and the treble gritty. This intensely negative impression contrasted by such wide praise on Head-Fi made me curious to try the newest version, the Abyss 1266 Phi TC. "

Check out this comprehensive and excellent review by Flux at Den-Fi of the LCD5

"This review has been a challenge for me. I have had an ongoing internal debate in assessing my enjoyment of the headphone in question. I compared frequency response graphs, used equalizer (EQ) profiles from various community members, and traveled to multiple events to spend more time evaluating the LCD-5 on a variety of audio components. Objectively, subjectively, and personally, this headphone has pulled me into multiple directions on how to proceed with a review. "

An opulent sound. The GATO FM-8 bookshelf loudspeaker.

As I have continued my journey through hi-fi I have noticed my tastes and listening preferences shifting from a sound that is ultra transparent, fast and teeming with microdetail to a sound that focuses more on the liquidity, flow and harmonic bloom of music. My desktop loudspeaker reference is the ATC SCM7. A 2 way bookshelf speaker from the venerable British professional monitor company. It is a fantastic speaker that excels when it comes to pacing and delivering every drop of nuance, clarity and detail that can be startling. The problem? At least in my setup the treble can be at times a touch hot and lead to listening fatigue.

In my search for a more musical richer sounding speaker a name that kept...

"For the new N-S2000A, Yamaha has drawn on the design of its flagship models to achieve consistent tone color – or tonal balance – across the entire frequency spectrum. The NS-2000A uses the newly developed Harmonious Diaphragm for each speaker unit, which consists of a mix of ZYLON and spruce. While ZYLON has excellent speed, internal dissipation and suppleness properties, spruce is the preferred wood for grand piano soundboards and essential for reproduction. This blend should ensure accurate and true tonal expression across the entire sound spectrum. "
