JH13 with Crystal Piccolino Cables - Page 8  

post #106 of 117
Yeah the price is the only issue with the cable but it definitely proves that a cable can make a difference for sure.

I just find one cable, that can provide wider sound stage and more bass.
I will provide more information When I finished.

My friend lend me and it use platinum.

Hope this can replace the piccolo.

PS:in Taiwan, You can only find 1m piccolo.So sad.

It would be wrong for me to say that its greedy to charge so much...there are plenty of things we buy on a regular basis which cost absolutely nothing to make (soda, clothing, most electronics, etc.)...but trying to justify this by the contents of the cable and R&D is pretty ludicrous. The parts cost is pretty low...and R&D on cables is also very low compared to most any other product available. People are free to charge what they like. Just... geez. People in this hobby accepting these prices are why there are companies getting away with it.

Anyways..

I have a feeling that most people will be pairing cables like this with less than stellar sources, just like in home audio where many hobbyists buy expensive cables but have poorly/incorrectly treated rooms with bad in-room bass response. $800 dollars worth of mods could do an awful lot for your system and probably make more impact. I do hope people will consider other options.
Talk with Craig at Whiplash. I'm getting a new cable from him to try out. Much cheaper than the Piccolo. Much cheaper!

After looking over options, I've realized you can use the best parts quality available and build a nice cable for around $50...these things should take no time to build, as well. If I had experience soldering I'd do it....the price from Whiplash Audio isn't too bad, honestly (compared to alternatives) and comes with the good stuff. Now debating between a new cable or upgrading my DAP...hmm...

Btw... I'd like to state that it's Piccolino. Not Piccolo. They're very different cable.

And yes you can do that... But one should always try out another cable before they really decide the difference.

But..........

Let's just say that upgrading your source or amplification is way, way more important as opposed to purchasing some "boutique" cables.

Care to explain the 'very' difference?

Jaben explained that they exclusively had Piccolino, that it's a finely stranded wire optimized for portables, while the Piccolo is a stiffer interconnect wire.

The Whiplash cable is ridiculously well priced. If you were to buy that wire from him at $11 a foot (keeping in mind it's the best OCC silver money can buy, far beyond regular silver that I've tried) you could hardly buy the wire alone to make a 4 foot cable for $180 with shipping.

Go figure.

I don't think I can justify this buy.... would love to demo it, but the cable would be as much as jh16's..... which is crazy to me.
