Mmmm...well, let's not forget that this cable is a 'free bonus'.

 

Not much to be gained in life by 'looking gift-horses in the mouth', so-to-speak rolleyes.gif

 

 

I think it looks very nicely made and I'd be happy to receive free bonuses like this every day (I should be so lucky!)

Since I've just received mine, they might be in the mail to you...

I'm not holding my breath for a UM track top, though! LOL

*dons flame suit*

 

We still haven't laid eyes on the final design of the ACFV2 here in Australia, but we know UMLab now has an initial shipment of them, so a few (15) will be going out in the next 5 business days.

 

Hoodies are en route to UMUK next weekend.  

 

At the moment we're working through our list staring with promo clients in the US.  Ampcity will likely have kept enough cables for promo clients in the UK.  Promo clients in Japan, Aus, Philippines and Malaysia will be following suite shortly thereafter, once we get our second batch of cables at UMlab.

 

We, along with you cannot wait to see this behind us.

Well. The long-awaited AmpCity Fortis Cable finally found the way to my room.

Got home after the afternoon lecture and there it was:

 

2012-05-03 05.07.26.jpg

 

The cable is well made, a bit stiff and less flexible than the original Fortis Cable (one I got in the past) and stock Westone cable (one I got from UM to use while the Fortis cable was made).

I hope that over time the cable will become more comfortable to use.

About the sound quality, I will have to get my iMod back first xD

I was a part of the UMUK promo (chose the Miracles) and I did receive my cables earlier today (I live in Sweden). Regarding the sound, I haven't listened for more than a dozen minutes or so, but there's definitely more bass quantity. Regarding the bass quality and the rest of the spectrum, I'll have have to do some critical listening and A/Bing with the stock cable. They look great, especially the connectors, although I'm not a fan of the white ball at the Y-split.

 

Has anyone else had the time to evaluate the cables?

Can't wait to try the cable out; I have a hard time imagining my Miracles sounding better than they already do. ksc75smile.gif

The new Fortis Cable ...Kinda looks simmilar to UM's own Audio Beats Silver Cable.....Very different to their orinal V1 offering...

It should be. The silver wire is totally different. It's from a new supplier and not even handmade anymore. IMO v1 looks way better. Quite disappointing when they give us this kind of silver cable, especially when they illustrated something else... (I prefer quad braid, more eye-catching as well as durable.)

 

I just hope it sounds much better...

Who will volunteer to cut their ACFV2 up to check if it is silver as well as to check strand count? wink.gif

just open the screws on the viablue jack and check the solder joints :)

post #1063 of 1228

Anyone out there who has it, and obviously put some hours into it ....What do you think?

Kunlun has the 1st version of it, wonder if he can compare them for us?..... Sound that is....

post #1064 of 1228

post #1065 of 1228

As in no difference after burn-in or no difference compared to stock cable?
