Peter will get it to you.

I don't know if that guy even sleeps (hell, I know I need to sleep more BECAUSE of his damn cables - my systems are sounding so damn good right now).

 

I gotta say - if you have a dual-XLR output on your amp - you MUST try the new Comp4s - I'm hearing new details in albums I've been crankin' for years!

He's an artisan!!

I am stilling searching cables that bring out the emotion in music and are clear as possible.  So far, with the cables I've tried, it has been either emotion or clear but not both.  What power cords are you using on your Liquid Gold amp and dac?  Do you have a power conditioner?  If so, what name brand and model?

Hey there!

 

I'm using Nordost Heimdall 2 power cords on all my reference gear - and I use a power distribution system also made by Nordost - Called Quantum Power (or, QRT). I'm using a QB8 (main power stage w/ 8 outlets) along w/ a Qv2 and a bunch of QK1s (plug ins - also for lowering the noise-floor).

 

I highly recommend Nordost cables for delivering the sonic/dynamic goods as well as emotive impact!

I also find that DHC and Nordost really compliment each other nicely!

 

Before Nordost came out with a headphone cable I used to call Peter the "Nordost of headphone cables"!

But - he still builds headphone cables that I prefer on my Audezes!!!!

 

I'm glad you asked about power - as many Head-Fiers under-estimate the importance of solid power delivery,

But that's VITAL!

Peter seems disappeared after 28th :-/  I was asking him questions and if I've not annoying him too much, he must be very busy in making cables for Michael Mercer........

 

Update: Turns out Peter was sick. Wish him can gets better soon. :-(

Yes I agree on the importance of good power and I’m using LessLoss power cords that I like very much, especially the signature.

 

Mike you have so many DHC headphone cables that you seems to love, but can you if you had to pic only one say which one is your favorite for Audeze LCD 2/3 F?

Hi all, I'm new to HiFi and would like advice for cable.  I'm just using the Sony NWZ-A17 Hi Res Walkman and Sony XBA-H3 (have a set of Shure 425 as well) and would like a set of new set of cables for the Sony IEM.  Currently looking at the DHC Symbiote SE Peptide Hybird silver plated OCC copper cable, can some one give me some advice of this setup?

 

Thank you,

 

Eric

Welcome to Head-Fi!  Don't know about the set up, but can tell you that the quality of DHC cables is top notch and you won't be disappointed.

Thanks, maybe I'll just give it a try.

You should contact Peter directly to ask his advice.  He's been under the weather recently so I'm not sure how quickly he might reply (plus it's the holiday rush season for orders).  He will get back to you and probably has some specific recs for you.

Thanks, I'll do just that...
