The Vanquish now up there on the site :

Mine should already be in the mail.

I'll give it some burn in with a dual 3-pin XLR to SE adapter until the GSX-MkII arrives and then it will be used balanced.

Where's the mail man ... ?! :eek:

+1 and what's the TOTL cable now?

post #831 of 2430

Just ordered my Vanquish cable for my LCD-2, so I'll let you know in a couple weeks what I think of it. My second cable from Trevor. First cable was a sleeved Skoll for my Senn HD650 and it's a superb cable.

I'm starting burning the cable (Skoll). The first impression compare to stock cable it does somehow increase mid, high, and clarity a bit but the bass seems a bit lesser to my ear, maybe its the impact of bring the mid/high more forward.

I mostly use Emotiva XDA-2 - Vali at the moment so maybe the it does not show their true potential though.

The Reign is a legacy product and will probably be discontinued, so I suppose Vanquish is gonna be the TOTL... until a new silver flagship cable comes out.

Hey guys,

 

Indeed Reign 24 was just a limited time release.

TOTL at this point in time is the Vanquish yes.

The bass/impact showed up for me after 24 hours of pink noise burn-in :3.

Fair enough, To ask a different way. I have the reign 24, as does preproman I think. Would the vanquish be an improvement and if so by how much?
post #837 of 2430
To those that have already received their Vanquish, just wanna know how is the ergonomic of the cable? Light? Pliable?
Am thinking of getting a 4-pin xlr cable for my HD800 and Vanquish is within my comfortable budget of $300.
Dont want to spend so much or wait for more then a month for the cable to arrive

Hey GJC, please send over an email if possible as I am limited in what I can discuss here as MOT (member of the trade).

I think the Draug cable is still Trevor's only full copper cable and will be a better choice for the HD 800s. I have it and I like it a lot smily_headphones1.gif

I have the copper based Norn2 and it pairs really well with my HD800 with great ergonomics! A few local headfiers who were considering Q (there is a local store selling Q) was swayed by me to look into NorneAudio now.
