Way to go Ed, this should be an interesting implementation of the DBT (Edit: I guess this isn't technically a DBT)

Getting the shipping package ready to go out.

All packed up and in the first tester's hands.

One week until the next person.

SoCal Head-fiers, please sign up quickly, want to have it make the rounds here quickly before it goes to another state. Washington, Oregon, or Arizona will probably be next depending on how many sign up in those states.

*Edit* Looks like Washington is in the lead for the next state after California.

Updated first post with the working distribution list.

Also, the one year requirement is not firm. It can be offset with a solid feedback thread.

lol. I like how you listed my setup which cannot use RCA cables at all in your distribution list.

one thing though... I may not be around to accept the package and do the test if it doesn't arrive in the next two weeks. after that my summer vacation starts and who knows what's going to happen then. I'll keep you updated on my status and hopefully we can work something out, I wouldn't want to miss out on this.

but then, from your post, Iron_Dreamer has had the cables for a week now so I should get it with time to spare.

Can I get the cables before Radrd? My family is leaving for Greece in early June, and looking at the list it's rather doubtful they'll get here in time otherwise.

I'll add my name to the hat, hopefully they'll be in the Illinois area around mid-June to early August when I'll be in class.

City=Urbana or Bethesda
State=IL or Maryland
Headphone Amp(s)=Dynahi
Source(s)=Homebrew
Headphones(s)=AKG K240S, others eventually

If no objections from Radrd, sure thing.

Edwood is there any way of knowing the final results, are you goind to post them.....I mean, maybe a poll or whatever, to know which is the cable that the majority of the headfiers consider as best, second and third, and later on you could state which is which????....

After I post the results, it is up to the individual participants what they want to say.
I updated the rules section to elaborate further on what results will be posted.

Why? I'm offering this test for free.

Only the cost of shipping to the next person is what you'll incur.

Do you have the list of who is getting the cables and in what order yet?

Yeah, yours are not expensive to try, but the upgraded cables later, are not free, if you choose to do it....
