the point being they are different cables, the SIlver posion is pure silver. where as the less expensive one is silver copper hybrid. I didn't read it correctly... shame on me q.q 

 

STILL thank you for the apperance. Don't mind me I get my foot stuck in my mouth pretty often 

 

That said it would be nice if the web site had under the hifiman cables an option for sleeved and unsleeved cables advertised, as to a super duper PAGE skimmer, just reading for key words. lead me to assume the Silver Posion and Cryo where the same cable [my mistake obviously ] still just a thought! 

 

ehm that said, nice prices :3

No problem, thank you.

 

My site is cr@p, i have been so busy that i have kept putting off updating it for over a year now. The title of the cables should make clear what is that though, as one says silver, while the other says silver/copper.  Best option is to email or PM me for placing orders or further info, but please do note that replies can take some time. My profile also has a more upto date list of the cables i currently offer.

 

Do note that the pictures on the site are also very outdated. I have made various small changed that make the cables look much better now.

 

Here are some pics i took over 6 months ago, does not include any of my newer cables.

But...He already said he had mistaken ur prices with another brand...right mshenay?

So This can also be put under same category as the one when u before accidentely said toxic cables prices are outrageous?

So imho toxic cables didnt even need to post this as mshenay knows this also already and he is just confusing the cables of toxic with some other brand...RIGHT? So its best to post opinions if ur sure of what u wanna post..as it could damage the good name of a brand otherwise....imho opinion ofcourse..but then again..everyone is allowed to their own opinion..even if it COULD be wrong...

Edit..just read ur foot..oops reply on that post.. Nevermind this post then biggrin.gif

 

Yes, i saw his earlier post,, but my post was mostly in reply to the sleeving costing so much more.

 
I realized that he must have been comparing my Silver Cable prices to someone else's SPC cable price, which i why i suggested checking what metals the cables are made of. You see it on here too often when people compare the price of cables. One just compares the prices and forgets the fact that the material used on the other costs 10 times as much.
 
As i said many times before, i launched Toxic with a goal of providing high quality cables at reasonable prices, prices that i would be happy paying myself.
 
Frank out. 
 
On a side note, i am an authorized Hifiman dealer, so if anyone in the EU is looking for a pair of HE-500, give me a shout and we can include a free upgrade cable with a pair.

 

Can do some great deals on Audio-GD gear also, all internally wired at the factory with my own OCC wire.

 

Might as well do a little advertising :biggrin:

Straight from KingWa's site

You assume that SE = ES in Audio gd, which does not apply. .

There was never an NFB-10SE2.

And the NFB-10SE had Wolfson chips. You may check many postings in this thread from 2 years ago. Also:http://www.head-fi.org/t/681247/free-amp-giveaway-with-conditions-audio-gd-nfb-10se

Anyway, great thread lads, will do some reading later tonight. Can't remember the last time i had a chance to use my 500's. Will hopefully get them back out soon, when i have a chance to actually use them.

Have been dealing with huge amount of suppliers from small to big enterprises for the most various of commodities for around 20 years now for a living..and people who try to do business like him (and survive) are of a very rare breed.. Hope he will stay the same in the proces he is in of extreme growth because of his new/loyal customers.... And that he can overcome the naturally arising challenges that arises because of such a growth.... And now i really want hard cash!!! biggrin.gif

Dear sir I really think you should think before you talk or type or else you could give someone else business' real damage. And you just can't say " ow I've mistaken your cable's for somebody's cable" and just get away with it. Imagine if some of the readers just read your comment and move on to another thread without reading the correction of your comment. I don't know Frank or use his Toxic Cable but if I would't make comments if I was't 100% sure about Toxic Cable's is a rip off.

the point being they are different cables, the SIlver posion is pure silver. where as the less expensive one is silver copper hybrid. I didn't read it correctly... shame on me q.q

Good job there quoting me, and ofc I can't get away with it 

 

Still thank you for the reminder! I'll do my best to read more carefully, because you have a very good point there.  I hope though that I didn't potentially shy you away from the cables either!

I buy them from the UK distributor who fixes the prices UK dealers can advertise them for and where i can sell them. 

 
I have updated the above post with some pictures i had on file, unfortunately, i don't have any of the newer cables yet.

btw can you run a He 400 or 500 fully balanced with ONLY a balanced cable? Would you need to re wires the input jacks on the He 400 and 500 or are they already copatbile with a balanced outpiut

Assuming the rest of your system is balanced then yeah.

Indeed it is, Audio GD 10SE2

post #8173 of 14530

Any HiFiMan can run in balanced mode by default as long as the cable being used has a balanced termination.  The stock cables that terminate to TRS have a positive and negative wire coming from each cup (L+,L-,R+,R-), and the negatives are combined at the TRS termination.  If you remove the TRS plug and trace the wires, with a bit of soldering you can re-terminate to a balanced plug like a 4-Pin XLR, or whatever is compatible with the amp you're using.

 

The balanced vs. single-ended debate is another one of those highly divided subjects, but here is some food for thought:

I find it makes a differance just need to confirm that it will work as it should 

 
and honestly my Audio GD amp sounds better Balanced out [volume matched] than it does SE so moving on
