I think Jude has the exact same cable that I saw and touched at CES Las Vegas where this cable debuted.The prototype was around six feet long and was shorter than the stock cable.The plug was also VERY large.I didn't get to hear it but I wore the headphones it was attached to and got to compare them physically to the clou red jaspis.As Jude says they were much more flexible than the Clou.I hope the final production version is longer.They should be at Headroom and Music Direct next week.Other dealers will get them later(when?).

Thanks for the awesome review, Jude.

The HD600 is a finicky one. It seems sub par on anything less than a dedicated amp. It seems mediocre on anything less than an extremely high powered amp. And here I am checking it out through the RKV thinking, "Man, if only it had a little better resolution and imaging" when I read Jude's comments about the Cardas. I guess I'm still not at a point where I can judge these things.

Okay, first of all, I'm no Imogen Cunningham, so don't expect photographic greatness from me. My digital camera is also sub-par, at best. Also keep in mind that I'm colorblind, so I'm not sure how accurate the colors are, and my wife's not home to tell me right now.

That being said, go back to the review, scroll down to the end of it, and you'll find links to the photos there.

thanks for the pictures jude. The cardas looks nicer in your pictures than it did in the soundstage (?) picture I had seen previously. The Stefan is still the winner in the looks department though, IMHO. Can't wait to hear the cardas!

The pictures look good enough to me. The Cardas cable looks very well-built. I may just have to scrape up some more $ and get me one.

There are a large number of Cardas dealers out there (the list is on the Cardas website). However, I believe that two that carry the full line (not all do) are Music Direct (www.amusicdirect.com) and Welborne Labs (www.welbornelabs.com). These were the dealers that George Cardas referred me to to place a special order with him.

Seriously when is a company like Cardas gonna release a replacement cable for the Etymotic earphones? I mean, fixup's cable is nice & all but I'm afraid of destroying my cable. I'm willing to pay for a cable of Cardas's finish(with their connector) & for a service to replace the cable.
Hell, anything to get rid of the microphonic noise!

anyone knows exactly when we can actually start purchasing the cardas? I'm getting a bit impatient now and really do not want to end up paying for something I don't particularly want (equinox) just because it's available now.

I recently heard one to two months
