    My post here will be pretty similar from one posted by 'theretheyare' (NAD: Baby Sumo + Arkham Abyss). A few days ago I received my Arkham Abyss Tube Preamp and I am in tube heaven. As noted by 'theretheyare' this set up is very portable for someone like me who needs to get around by the transit in Chicago.

    The following are the specs from the Abyss:

    The Baby Sumo is 600 Watts at 4 Ohm.

    Also, I was able to pick up a Pelican 1450 case off the bay for thirty bucks! I am able to transport both units in this case. This case is built like a tank!

    Micah has really hit a home run with the Abyss!

    @BostonJazz72 the Pelican case is a great tip to house both, thanks for that! Here's mine: case.

    Best setup I've ever played through! I'm saving for a modified Bullet from Micah. It's easier to travel with (flying) and most everywhere I play has a great DI already. Amazing preamps!!
     
  5. What's the mod?

    Added range knob, possibly dual voltage as well.

    Really like the features and form factor of the Abyss. I do think a mute switch would be handy though.

    With the 'Bullet' you don't get any scared looks when you try to bring that thing on a plane? Thanks!

    Awesome looking setup!

    I'm slightly OCD when it comes to cables. With the way that Sumo is obviously going to he used, an input on the back just makes sense to me. But that's picking nits.
