anyway, what's the best way of burning in the cable? do i leave it connected to the dock to play, or plug it into a different headphone jack, pump up some volume and let it run for X amount of hrs?
I burned mine in by just playing music at slightly higher than moderate levels.

I take it with me to university every day, jousling in my shoulder bag with the rest of my books. My iPod and PA2v2 are held together by a rubber band... I may need a better way to join the two, heh.

But yeah, the cables are super durable, unless you go ape-sheet on them.

You do have to be careful with solid silver cable. I was taking extra good care of my Cotton Dock, but a colleague accidentally bumped my elbow while I was holding my iPod/amp/Cotton Dock, knocking it to the desk -- and the cable did break.

It did seem quite durable while I was carrying it to and from work every day, but it's not indestructible.

I have 2 cottons and a cryo. The cottons sounds a little more full I guess, but the cryo is perfect for a portable- very thin and the jack connector is small enough that I can just about get a fingernail at the switches of my supermacro(). I like the cotton a little better, but Nano- cryo- micro is going to be a sweet portable. I have burned the cryo for 15-20 hours thus far.

i was debating between the ultra-thin and the six-shooter...i was worried about the durability of the silver wire but ken assured me that it would be robust enough for my travels...i'm more worried about how to bend it enough to fit my nano/supermini. we'll see. ken did say that he's only received 2 silver cables that were indeed bent too much to the point of breaking...

Well I just connected it to my iPod and amp. I don't think your way will work since there's no current flowing through the cable.

Any 6-shooter vs cryo comparisons?

I'm going to do a thread on the Jumbo Dock and will try to draw some comparisons to the Cotton. Not that this answers your question but the Jumbo also uses six

This might be a moon landing type announcement, but I just noticed the jumbo dock is now for sale.

I've got about 50 hours on mine and will try and get a thread up around the end of the week when it's passed the 100 hour mark but so far I am very imopressed.
post #148 of 216
I just bought a new mini to mini a few weeks ago because it appears that the jumbo is awfully big. I might upgrade if its significantly better, but I am pretty happy with the cryo and cottons at this point.

Looking forward to your thoughts though, so long as they dont influence me in the direction of "needing" something new.

ALO keep on outdoing themselves... the Cotton was good (well, best), now the JUMBO is even better sounding(and more expensive!).

OH, and I noticed he started cryogenically treating everything as if it was fun or something. What would cryo'ing the connector do?! :/

Is the Jumbo dock OK for the Hornet? Is it not too big?
