Hello guys,

I recently received a brand new pair of lcd2s.

I just love them. It is a human trap i tell you, but it works better for audiophiles smily_headphones1.gif) It chains you to the chair the moment you put them on. You can find more about my impressions here.

I am considering to buy a silver aftermaket cable for them, and I am considering toxic cables.

What do you guys think?

What cables do you have and what were the improvements?

Thanks,

Dan

I got a copper/silver hybrid from Toxic Cables and it was a definite upgrade from the stock cable. Everything seems more clear and there is lees background noise.

 

I highly recommend Toxic Cables.

I personally felt that silver cables took away from the LCD-2/3.  My Moon SilverDragon took away some warmth and smoothness in exchange for grain.  Not a good trade ;)  If you want a Senn HD800, buy one instead.

SPC is a hit or miss, http://www.head-fi.org/t/250436/silver-plated-copper-wire-how-good

 

From all the read I did, pure silver is the way to go.

I haven´t noticed such a difference between my Moon Audio Silver Dragon 3 or my Norse 4-wire compared to stock. Stock cable do has the most warmth though but the "gravel in it" is nothing I miss. I am not quite familiar with the grain term is it the gravel? I think I actually preferr the SD 3 by a hair over the norse for my LCD-2s. One Rev1 and one Rev2 but for practical reasons I use my norse cable much more. 3x as long.

Toxic Cables or (Frank's) new Piccolino cables....shoot him an email regards about it, as for the sound...it's good, very good, I built my own pairs for my HD800 and LCD2.

Technically my favourite of all time is the Q but in the EU the Toxic is likely easier to get.

 

 

grainy A moderate texturing of reproduced sound. The sonic equivalent of grain in a photograph. Coarser than dry but finer than gritty.

gritty A harsh, coarse-grained texturing of reproduced sound. The continuum of energy seems to be composed of discrete, sharp-edged particles

okay then it´s pretty much the same. Stock cable somewhere between grainy and gritty in comparison.

The newest cables that come stock are pretty smooth though rolled up top.

How many revisions are they? I have the first three though the last two of these are only cosmetic regarding differences I believe.

I bought my first pair of silver interconnects over twenty years ago and have tried several silver cables since and never found one that I could enjoy over the long haul.  Among other benefits, the Cardas Clear maintains midrange warmth while providing a more open yet still smooth treble.  I've been a fan of Cardas cables for a long time and he only uses copper.

Thanks for the answers guys.

I was almost sure i want a silver cable until now, but i don't want any grainier sound and especially not gritty.

I too liked the zu mobius on hd650 and it was only copper from what i know.

I wouldn't want to loose the midrange warmth.

Had the Zu Mobius, Cardas Clear, Stefan Audio Endorphin and now only use Q. 

I'm in the Q camp when it comes to workmanship, and ergonomics.

Nods.  And price.
