Thank you!

Credit goes to Craig, he takes my wire (my "baby", ha!) and makes some pretty beautiful creations out of it.

WELL...I am getting my TWag lod and edition 8 from Whiplash tomorrow in the mail...and well the jh-13 cable is taking a vacation around the world and will be coming back to NY next week. Lol but seriously the jh-13 cable is coming next week just cuz Craig is backlogged and won't be able to get it out to me next week. But no rush there
post #35 of 114
yeah no rush for my cables either, i just sent off my impressions today, and my first amp is going to be a pico slim so ive still got some time to wait on that too haha though the jh 13 cable will be used as soon as i get them monitors

Well I have the Rx and shadow right now and so far it is Rx 1-0 and shadow 0-1 so my next comparison will be Rx vs Pico slim and whichever wins will be the amp I hold for a while.

not to get terribly OT, but i hope that its the Slim, cause ive been debating what portable amp to get for several weeks now, iQube, Meier Move, Rx, Shadow, Lisa, and the Pico slim. I finally decided on the pico slim though cause its got the best volume control for use with iems, and even with very sensitive iems, people said there was no hiss, which most the other amps had, including the Rx. Though im not real stoked about waiting till january to get it haha but once i do, im sure my new TWag's are gonna do a damn fine job connecting everything

Well Craig - you had me scared there, for a minute.

(FWIW: mine didn't tighten up on the bottom end until around 150hrs., and at about 225 hrs., the top end is finally getting some really good air)

This wire needs a long burn in.

But, the rewards are astounding!!!

(Whiplash - you should send Jerry a pre-burned in set - he would be very pleased at what they do to his JH13's)

I reiterate my burn-in experience was very slow.
For awhile there, it scared the hell out of me (..and, I'm fearless)

But in the end, the TWag paid off in spades:
this is the most profound cable-induced SQ improvement I've ever heard.
(saving my pennies for a "spare" - the TWag is that good)

Way to go Whiplash.
Thanks Craig.

I've had mine burning in since Saturday afternoon, so for about 72 hours. At your suggestion, Sierra, I have anywhere from 80 to 150 hours, or 3 to 7 days more to go. It is good to hear what these cable can do. Can't wait...

It's great to hear that you are satisfied with your cable Ken

Happy New Year, everyone!

Update on TWag + JH13 + RSA Shadow:

remember how "blown away" you were,
when you first plugged into the JH13's?

Get ready for another epiphiny...

At 250+ hours burn-in, Craig's TWag cables + JH13's - absolutely EXPLODE!!!

As Craig told me (long ago): "These things on JH13's are SCARY."

Craig was absolutely correct!

(but you wouldn't know it, until 250+ hours burn-in - imho)

Craig:
"They are everything you said they would be, and more.
Thanks, man!"
You have earned a "True Believer" here.

..to all others: be patient...
and, you will be rewarded.

Just like the original JH13's...

"UN - FREAKIN' - believable"
(after 250+ hours burn-in)

N.B.: at ~ 100 hours - they sounded pretty crappy!

AND, after 250 hours, the TWags just keep getting better!

It's like "Day-Glo JH13's".

PS: check out Five Finger Death Punch;
album: War is the Answer
track: "Far From Home";
well-crafted ballad
- great lyrics, vocals, bass line, guitar solo.
(My son knows them, and says they are smart, hard-working, serious musicians)
- I don't like most of their "head banger" stuff, but this track has a "life of its own"

the stock ue11 is the weak link to my portable rig by choking and not letting "all"the music through. the scscag really opens up my ue-11 like a waterflow of music versus a trinkle of music. 2nd ,the ue11 has a hopped up bass that over powers the mids and highs on some genres and songs.the scscag has really tightened up the bass(no more flabby farting bass with the stock cable)
ok now the icing on the cake! most silver cables out there are very cold and sterile sounding! not these! the scscag is warm,lush and very musical

The reason why the Scscag is not cold and sterile on the UE11 pro could it be because the UE 11 is known to have a loose and/or heavy bass and overly warm sound signature? Could that be the reason why it matches well with the silver scscag cable? I am interested in the Twag cable for my JH13, but the JH 13 is a little brighter than the UE 11, so I like to know if anyone out there tries the Twag on the JH13 and does it make the JH13 too bright? Thanks alot.

Decur, it's been three weeks, how is it coming, I am interested to know how you compare the Twag between the UE 11 and the JH13. Thanks

After 13 days (just a little over 300 hours) of burn in, I finally tried the TWag with the JH13 and the answer to your question is that it does not make the JH13 too bright. Beautiful silky singing highs (listening to classical music - Dvorak) on all upper register instruments. Of course, I haven't been listening to my JH13s at all since I started burning in my TWag (nor did I sneak a listen before during the burn-in period) so really can't make pre-/post-comparisons other than some vague memory impression. The holidays always seem to wreak havoc on my quiet time! Regardless, I concur whole-heatedly with Sierra that the TWag + JH13s + Shadow and any lossless source is pretty bloody amazing in terms of SQ. I'll let Sierra's words speak for themselves - and for me....I'm speechless right now.

For those of you who listen to classical, I think you will be amazed at how well the combination above (+4G 60gb iMod lossless) really makes music, I mean really engaging, stop-what-you're-doing-and close-your-eyes music. One example is the piano pizzicato double bass in middle section of the 2nd movement of Dvorak's New World and how you can hear the strings plucked as well as hear the entire line all the way down to the lowest string. It's not in your imagination, you're hearing real low articulated sound.... In fact one of the real strengths of the whole set up I have is how well it works with really quiet passages (save for the relative isolation issue...not one of the JH13s real strengths for me).

Thanks Jerry, Craig, Ray and Vinni......or maybe in the reverse order! Oops, I forgot Ken at ALO for the mini-mini!!! By the way, five of the very top customer service examples in the industry.....

Thanks for the feedback, btw, how about bass? and since you have the stock cable, did you do and A/B comparison?
