congratz on the new title bro!

 

And green colour blindness - sad face :(

I guess, the genes didn't pass unto the kids...which is good news :)

 

Out of interest, why do they turn green so fast?

Corrosion right?

I am liking the ASG1 very much specially on softer volume than I usually listen to.

I beleive the term is oxidation.  Without getting too technical it is imiliar to corrosion or rusting, but not as serious.

I'm familiar with the term.

So why is it we see oxidation in these wires, and not others? I'm curious.

 

I guess that's why many manufacturers have a black wire

Its either the copper or the silver they use. Most cables do it, apparently Chris_Himself Silver Ray cables don't, but most others do.

 

And yes, this may be the reason some manufacturers make black cables.

The cables turn green because they tarnish. All cables actually tarnish, how much they tarnish is dependent on environment and material. Silver cables will tarnish blue while copper will tarnish green. This cable's tarnish is visible because the cable used has a translucent coating. Other cables don't have it visible since the cables coating is opaque.

Tarnish is normal for a cable. It'll happen with time and is not a defect.

Actually in copper cables and silver cables, only copper cables oxidize under room temperature and turn green, and yes, that is one reason why there are black cables. Silver cables don't oxidize in room temperature, but instead they react with sulfur and form a black compound -silver sulfide, which is black. But this process is much slower. If you sweat a lot cables tarnish faster.

I remember that bang for buck was questioned back in the original thread. While I can't say the ASG-1's offer the best bang for buck, it definitely competes with those in it's price range and it's definitely not under par. Given the choice, I would probably take these over the PFE 132 in a number of areas.

These smash 132s everywhere but smoothness... In my opinion.

Not really, PFE132 blows the ASG-1 treble out of the water. The PFE 132 also have a more engaging sound. Mids, soundstage and bass is taken by the ASG-1.
