I bought some from him once. He has a little shop right near the Centro Civico in Tijuana. Nice guy. Almost 100% off.

I don't think he makes cables. All I keep hearing about is that he SAVES. Never "Jesus 7N OCC Silver RCA - New testament edition" or anything similar.

 

Will drop by my local church tomorrow and enquire just to be sure. It'd be awesome to use interconnects made by the Son of God. Eat your heart out Mr.Nordost Valhalla 2!!!!!

-god is a dj
-jesus save me
-last night a dj saved my life

pretty easy from those irrefutable clues to understand that he took after his father and also became a dj.

Almost, he's an MC.

I wonder what deity would make the best cables. Zeus and Thor, maybe? The latter would deliver the big bassy sound, obviously.

Any of them actually doing so would be more believable than most of the claims put out there by Nordost, et al.

:( I'm hearing cable difference.  I didn't think a day would come, but this was the day.  I got a new amp which seems very transparent.  It came with it's ofc cable, and been using that, but it didn't sound right.  I swap to a cable I made with braids, and the stage opened up.  The cable is going from my ODAC's output to the amp.  It's an interesting day for me...

 

Right now, I have a very transparent setup.  I would say the best setup I've ever had as I get accurate translation to my super accurate phones.  I'm using IEMs, I don't know if this info would help to explain what's going on.

So you got a faulty cable with your new amp. Ask for a replacement.

ok, I'll ask for another.  What would be faulty about it?  Cables only conduct L and R.

Which is precisely why if there is any difference, one of the cables is faulty ;)

That could be true.  What's crazy is that the cable they provided advertise ofc and shielded, yet it sounds dry.  My other cables, normal ones, sound like it has wider sound stage.

Sorry about this, I don't think it was the cable, it was my printer sucking all the power from usb, while I'm listing to a setup sourcing USB as DAC.

lol, well there you go.

As to your other question - what could be faulty... I expect bad soldering (cold solder) would mean higher resistance and imbalances (e.g. the Left signal path attenuated compared to right, or bad grounds) that could induce what you describe.

thanks, I've been smiling for 10mn. you solved one nice mystery here. someone else might have just stopped at "that cable is clearly better" and never looked back.
