No lack to my ears drez!  In fact, with the TH900's, which are know to have a somewhat recessed midrange, they come through very full, not thin or lacking in body at all.  What I like most about the Comp4 is better detail and image placement, the sound stage is more precise as to instrument and vocal location.

Thanks for your reply, I better jump in the queue for another cable!

Talk to Peter first about the details regarding the current "Fusion" version of the Comp4 right now. ;) The Comp4 I have right now is only copper, not the newer fusion copper/silver hybrid!

Ah I see, I would expect [the copper] to be similar to Molecule Extreme I have, except possibly bit different due to shielding/dampening?  I might expect hybrid or silver to be something else entirely so less of a known quantity regarding midrange presentation.

 

I have sent Peter an email to ask about the Comp4 so hopefully hear back from him.  I was thinking Comp4 might be silver as could not find on the website, thus my concern over the midrange presentation.

To me, the "best" cable should come as close as possible to sounding like NO cable - it doesn't impart its own SQ onto the music,

and Peters just NAILING it lately, IMHO:

Mike, would you be able to give some thoughts on the differences between your Comp4 and Molecule Extreme?

Just received my Molecule Xtreme. Initial impression is very positive, shall let it burn in for a while before making more comments :)

Froger,

I see that you have a AMR DP-777.  It is one of the DAC I am considering to feed my Eddie Current EC445 tube amp, along with the Resonessence Invicta and the TotalDAC D-1 ( 3 very different approach I agree :-) . My EC445 sound signature is in between SS and tube, so a little added warm/silk will not hurt...as long as I do not loose the extreme precision of the 445.

 

-->  Could you comment on the sound quality and signature of the AMR DP-777 ? Are you happy with it or are you considering other DACs ? Do you use the option to switch between the 2 dac chips ?

Are you considering upgrading it with the new SE board ? 

 

thanks for your advices.

 

PS : What is the PLIX 1R little box besides the Aurender for ?

The Plixir box is a linear power supply for the Aurender for those who might be curious. PM the rest of my reply to avoid OT. Cheers!

Peter said the Molecule Extreme is his favorite cable for HD800 currently, so far I agree that they are really a very good match.

No kidding, I ordered a second cable as I specced this one too short!  This is by far the best cable I have heard so far, so dynamic, realistic, and naturally detailed.
