So i guess moon audio and all the others using Coax cables for balanced setups do not know what they are doing LMFAO
If it does not work perfectly then why is it that it floors every other balanced cable out there.
After you have tried this cable in a balanced setup that is when you have an actual opinion worth listening to.
Let me see, there are 2 people here that actually own the cable in question and say it sounds just fine and then there is someone who has never even listened to it that says it dont lol
You are yet another person here i have seen that goes around giving advice and thinks they know better about gear they have never even listened to or tried.
Parrots, theoretically, I think Qusp's point is accurate with regard to coaxial, however, that doesn't mean it cannot be used for IC and headphone cables. I have in front of me two crystal headphone cables (HD800 and JH13) and one interconnect and they do sound very good. When I was at Jaben, I even tried their Crystal LOD and IC and yes my whole portable rig was wired up by Crystal and yes there is a sound difference. Clean. natural, transparent, tight bass, smooth high are the sound characters of the Crystal cable.
I think during the construction of the Piccolino cable, they really pay attention to the core and the shield to make them balance. Keep in mind that when Crystal made the Piccolino, even though they made it in the coax format but their intention is not for coax application but use it as headphone cable. It is specifically developed for headphone application and not for the tradition digital coax use. That is why it can be use as balance IC. By the way, jsut make GG a IC and let her try it out
