The Greek symbol Phi φ has many contexts in science and math including magnetic flux and phase, so once we finalized all the incremental improvements made to the original AB-1266 speaker driver, it seemed a fitting suffix to this iconic Abyss model.
This is the perfect speaker in a perfect room music lovers seek. Musical information no longer is blurred, harmony can easily be heard as individual singers within the group, instrument separation is crazy good, bass drums have the rolling of their skins, ‘bass within bass' as we call it.
With flat phase and impedance, the directly driven AB-1266 Phi simply sounds like you are standing on the surface of the microphone. Resolution limits are now squarely in the realm of the electronics and the recording.
The new verion AB-1266 Phi (AB-1266φ) refines the sonic virtues of Abyss with greater transparency to the source, further improved low freqency impact and resolution, and vocals as alive as can be. More importantly, the AB-1266 Phi will preserve in history one of the finest headphones ever produced.
