- Total MSRP - $6600
The XI Audio Formula S Amp/Powerman PS combo was designed in conjunction with JPS Labs to specifically bring out the best in the Abyss 1266's, widely considered among the best headphones money can buy. So you can be assured these are designed and manufactured to the very highest standards. And if they can drive the notoriously power-hungry 1266's, they will likely have no problem with whatever you can throw at them.
Dual mono amplifier modules within the black anodized aluminum chassis of this Eleven Audio headphone amp delivers stunning speed and clarity, with hard hitting bass and drums and beautifully smooth tube-like decay to cymbals and string instruments. The Formula S amp is tuned for the highest resolution music and headphones. Impeccable balance, smooth and clear to the source, excellent bass definition, simply put the dedicated headphone amp every connoisseur seeks. And it's stout size takes up less real estate on your desktop.
The sonic signature of this amp can be best described as having a highly refined, detailed yet full sound with plenty of harmonic richness approaching that of a high performance tube amp without the heat. As amplifiers go, in my 30+ years in audio it's sonic signature is what everyone seeks as they spend too many years on the merry-go-round.
Very lovingly used and cared for, check my Feedback here and you'll see I'm a fellow Audiophile that's been doing this for a long time and always go the extra mile to take care of those I do business with.
