Hai, where can I find more info like sample photos of all the connectors? I am kinda confused with the term Stereo 1/4" , Stereo RCA, Stereo Mini, Stereo 1/4" female and so forth. Thanks

cinch/rca male:

(you'd need two for stereo)

cinch/rca female:

(you'd need two for stereo)

3,5mm = 1/8" stereo female:


3,5mm = 1/8" stereo male/plug:

(there are two of them on the pic... don't mind)

6,3mm = 1/4" mono to rca/cinch converter

(you'd need two of them to connect your amp using the stock breakout and standard ics - to my ears the fidaudio 0404 breakout ic is superior and doesn't need additional adapters)

enough?

I can't give you a picture, but the pinout is in this thread.

in addition the sound seems to be more "black", there's more silence between the notes.

the bass, especially middle bass is better refined, i.e. intruments no longer bleed into each other
I think all these changes are because the attack and decay especially are much faster. I can now listen to piano on 580s!

Finally got my Fid-Audio cables a few weeks ago. Great work..now the sound.
Maybe it's me but it sounds more muted with less resolution. I was told there is a break in period. OK I can wait.
I am using a HD580 with a Mister X pimeta and a Modded 0404. I upgraded to HD 595 cables. Everything sounds like a nice bottle of red wine, I was hoping for a shot of Tequila now and then.

Anybody have an opinion?

maybe you need a bit of time. using radio shack adapters, original breakout cable, and audioquest diamondbacks, it sounded like cotton. switching to starquad 1/4 to rca helped clean things up, but it still sounded a bit too slow/warm/goopy. the fid-audio breakout terminating in RCA is like - hmm, how to put it - it's like they aren't there. totally out of the way and transparent. i don't think of ICs at all anymore, it's like my brain knows that this is one part of my rig that i don't have to fuss with anymore. that's a serious relief, considering the ton of ICs out there. Plus, my breakout had a mini analog input as well, so i can crunch some guitar work or hook up my vinyl!
