I think you'd crap your pants if you heard how good my system sounds (and I've still got a long way to go).

VD Cables

I am certain the are worth it, but I'll just have to wait, even on sale they are out of my league. Still it is cool to see the ultimate products being used and talked about here. FNG that I am. Maybe next year. Any suggestions on lower to middle cost connects?

Take a look at the Cobalt cables in my signature. For their price they are superb.

HDMI Cables, Audio Cables & Audio Patch Cables - Cobalt Cable

I'm still using a glass toslink in mine because of the questionable quality of the breakout. Have you been able to compare optical versus coax out of dongle?

Congrats on the win BTW

Thank you. The Juli@ does have optical out, but I have nothing to plug it into. My amp does not have optical inputs, so there was no need for me to ever get an optical cable. I would definitely like to try it one day.

Woo my testament 2.0 arrived!

Dang its thick... I like the fact that you have to bend it coz its completely stiff

I'll plug it in soon. The thickness does not work well with the fact that my PC is in the cupboard...

Edit: wo they weren't lieing about the magnetic field thing! I put it near the side of my desk and it stuck :O

Congrats! Yeah, it will stick to the side of your desk if it has metal sides.

It's a damn good thing my audio card has a breakaway cable. Besides the fact that the cable won't reach my PCI ports without it, it wouldn't plug into the RCA outputs on the card anyway. All the RCA jacks are recessed, and the actual space for each PCI port is only about 5/8". My Cobalt cables barely fit on them. The VD cable ends are much too thick to fit inside the PCI port space.

If you plan on getting a VD digital cable, make sure your sound card is using a breakaway cable or has RCA jacks that are not recessed. Otherwise, you'll end up being disappointed since you will have to use another RCA cable as an adaptor. But I guess that wouldn't be a big deal anyway since the breakaway cable is effectively doing the exact same thing. It is probably of no consequence though, since wiring inside a component is thinner than an RCA cable anyway. The VD cable (or any high-end cable) acts as a line filter.

Hmm yeah theres' no way i can get it into the computer with moving my DAC. There's not much room behind the DAC so the cable wont really work with it... I'll try rearranging...

I have an Audigy 2 zs Platinum with the little dock out the front so there wont be any issues there.

You really have to get yourself a new soundcard. Make that your next purchase.

Yeah... I would probably get an x-fi since need that for gaming and stuff.

I'm thinking of moving my whole rig into my bedroom with the source an Mp3 player though so I won't do anything too soon.

Congrats on your win. At least it was free.

Digital cables that cause concision? Yes, my mind is definitely blown!

PS - Maybe they should use this digital cable for the head-fi servers. If it causes concise posts, they could save a lot of bandwidth!

Gah. It seems there is no way I can use this digital cable with my PC in a cupboard...

And theres no way im moving it OUT of the cupboard until its running at acceptable volumes...

And theres no way its gonna run at acceptable volumes until I buy a new case...

And theres no way I can buy a new case until all my auctions have finished with satisfying results.


AAAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On a lighter note, this cable makes a good hat.

PJ, I know I am going to get flamed for this, but can you do a blind test? Just have someone plug in a cable and not tell you what it is. I think this is a fair and decent request.

Sure, next time someone comes over I'll be happy to. But really, it's a no brainer which one sounds better. I only know this because I have switched the cables back and forth at least 5 times since I got the Master LE, just to make sure I was in fact hearing a difference. I can pick one area of the frequency and tell you which cable is which, and undoubtedly the bass is the most noticable improvement.
