They sound fantastic,bass seems a little deeper,and treble is clean & crisp

I,m more than happy with this cable---I should have contacted Peter,long before this.


Tnx,
Mike

 

Congrats on the cable Mike. I should be posting a few pics of my new cable once it arrives.

Peter is making me a custom Sinnet cable with 6? wires? I sort of forgot the details of it. It's for the HE-400/500. It's more of an experimental cable.

No, as I said, this is an experimental cable so I don't think Peter intends on releasing it yet to his site, but seeing how amazing it looks via pictures, it is a worthy consideration.

Just wanted to share my Halloween competition prize, it's a bit late but you know what they say.

 

It's a 3.5mm to 3.5mm interconnect. Enjoy! L3000.gif

 

 

Top notch Double Helix Cable build quality!

 

Check that sexy braiding out!

 

What the colours actually look like.

 

Taking interconnects to a new level.

Hi all hoping this post gets to the right hands. I recently bought the UE 900 and am looking to upgrade the cables to a set of Double Helix Cables. I am a bit confused on what the difference between the following. See option 1, option 2.  I have read the options of both but this is the first time I have delved in this deep with my audio obsession.  

Thanks all


Option 1 ( DHC Symbiote SE Hybrid )

 

 

Option 2 ( DHC Symbiote SE litz OCC )

Option 1 is SPC (Silver Plated Copper) while option 2 is just OCC copper. I haven't tried the SPC to tell you the difference, but I think I remember someone telling me that SPC is a bit thinner? Not too sure

My experience with silver plated cables (not from DHC) has been disappointing. I have ordered option 2 for this reason, but haven't received yet to comment.

In my experience, the plating seems to detract from the coherence of the sound. The silver definitely adds air and opens the soundstage, but the mixture of metals makes the music less enjoyable to my ears.
I couldn't say exactly why, but I think it's a question of coherence. Perhaps the two metals create some tiny variation in when the different signals reach the drivers and that creates just enough interference to make a difference. I don't know - just a theory, but pure copper for me has been much more coherent and smooth than SPC.

Thank you both for the reply. This is my first foray in to cable world and I appreciate all the advice I can acquire before making my purchase.  Would anyone happen to have a good picture of the difference between the Rounded cable style and Squared style? The pictures on the site are not very clear for me.

I'll see if Peter has a few pics he can share here.

Peter and I talk roughly every day about both of our cable brands and other things. He seems to have disappeared out of the blue as of more than a month ago (or round about) when lots of people were getting sick. I truly hope he's okay but I have not heard from him since which is extremely uncommon nor has he posted responses to others looking for him on Facebook. This is completely uncommon of him so I fear something might be seriously wrong. I don't think he has posted here either since end of November or early December.
