Prepro I see you have a lot of Norse cables, which one is your favorite? If you had to chose.

I'm going to wait until I get the Reign Cable in.  I'm sure Trevor would like to know as well.

I just wanted to chime in and thank Trevor for the best customer service I've ever encountered in my audio experience.  I owned the Norse Norn series cables and had it replaced with the Skuld series.  I absolutely love the new Skuld cable.  It is very light and easy to manage.  Sloppy phone pictures but here it is.

I have the Intruder currently and the dual xlr's are for the upcoming hifi-m8.  I ordered the adaptors before knowing that I can have the m8 with other adaptors options.

I'm so jealous, I want the intruder so bad for it's ability to drive anything. Have you tried it with hard to drive cans?

I actually traded for it.  I had the MK3B but didn't have the CLAS db to use balanced so I just ended up trading with a fellow head-fier for the intruder.  I basically use it with the HE-500's using the RSA adapter and it's the best I've heard the 500's so far.  Overall, I prefer the MK3B but this combo and listening balanced out is worth it for me.  Plus, I am addicted to RSA's bass.  The 500 is the hardest to drive phones I have and the intruder does it effortlessly on high gain with room to spare on the volume pot.

How about the MK3B, does it have room to spare on the volume pot?

I would have never bought it either since it's so expensive.  Then again, neither is the MK3B.  By the way, these cables ROCK!!  Long live NORSE!!!
