Are you running the 500s from your S.E.X., Mark?
LOL. Actually yes! The only thing holding me back is having to go to the shop to buy the 4 x 100ohm resistors, but I've bought the socket and I'm ready with my Dremel!
Can anyone recommend some good replacement HE500 cables to me? Hopefully nothing too expensive. I've been looking at Toxic Cable's line and am wondering if there's anything else in that price range that is good.
Thanks for the suggestions!
Damn, the Skoll series is in my budget and looks incredible. Red with wood splitter seems so luxurious...
My new Norne cable for my LFF Enigmas are coming in soon and it is red. I can send you pics when it gets here if you want to see how it looks. My Norne cable for my HE500 is just black with a Wenge splitter.
Thanks guys, the choice of Canare cable came from this link -> http://robrobinette.com/BalancedCable.htm#Convert_HE-500
I tried the grill mod last night and i'm still on the fence if i like it or not, its possibly a little bit too bright now for my liking, but it did seem to help the low end dynamics which i do prefer. I'm interested to hear other peoples opinions, and see what else you have all tried?
Yup, looks super clean. It's amazing how much money you save doing something like this. A simple snip of the sleeving to make the Y-split and canare/mogami wire is about the highest quality wire around.
