The Viper is a silver plated copper wire, it is only my Silver Poison and that has gold in it.

ad Frank:

 

How many strands does the new Viper cable have? Is this 7x15 = 105 strands?

 

Are you offering any silver (or silver/gold combination) cables that are stranded? The SP is solid core as far as I know or am I wrong here?

 

This small carbon fibre splitter looks really sexy (not half as good as the new silver chrome splitter I've seen a few pages earlier in this thread though). tongue_smile.gif

 

Thanks for the info.

I have just read this on the Q-Audio website, at the end of the description of their "Q French Silk cable for Audeze LCD-2/3"

 

" *220 is the number of individually insulated strands in each of the cable's four litz wire conductors, not the entire four conductor cable. Toxic Cables advertises their copper litz Black Widow cable as using 420 individually insulated strands, however this number is the total number for the four conductor cable (i.e. each conductor only uses only 105 individually insulated strands). So to make a direct comparison, the Q French Silk cable uses 880 individually insulated strands versus the Toxic Black Widow's 420 individually insulated strands."

 

Frank, looks like you're quite famous! Competitors already have to directly compare their stuff to yours, that's how popular your cables are biggrin.gif

Frank is now raising radioactive spiders that spin SP silk on demand at 2048 strands per conductor.....biggrin.gif

Free advertising, what more can one ask for. biggrin.gif

 

I make and design my wire based on how they sound, if 3 strands sounded better then a million, i would use 3. I think my cables, speak for themselves.

Quality over marketing??   (gasp....stagger....) What kind of capitalist are you??!!  biggrin.gif

So just wanted to mention that I got a set of speaker cables from Frank awhile ago and wanted to just say these are amazing cables.  They are great to look at, flexible and light weight.  The sound is very nice, everything tightened up and IMO the sound stage grew a little bigger and things became clearer sounding and  I love these speaker cables!

The new Viper and Scorpion, do not use 105 strands, they use double that, per wire and 840 per cable.

 

Other then my Silver and Copper Venom cables, all my other cables use stranded wire, not solid core.

I told u guys..frank is starting to make the big boys **** in their pants with his one man show..and now they are starting to fight dirty! .but am wondering..if its legally allowed using franks company already good name and products to look like he is selling inferior products then the others..as if u read that line fast..like i did at first..it could sound like they want u to believe franks gives incorrect info about his products! And thats so low..as frank is a very honest guy..we all know that! Me in particurarely..RIGHT Frank? biggrin.gif this reading makes me nervous..in the netherlands as far i know they need to have approval from the competitor they use their name whether its a good or bad comparision..i dont know how it works in the uk or usa...i am in procurement and contracting business and honestly i dont like it when a company uses the good name and products of others for their own good in anyway without consent.

.u know what..even if they had a million stranded cable for 100 euro..i still wouldnt buy it..just out of principle..(although i know franks cables sound better anyway. biggrin.gif. )and so would u guys! and trust me..i would and will use my network to say the word..these kind of things pisses me off ...yes u can see it as flattering...but i know from experience that new customers who are not into the cable world or technical go for the sweet words..and so go for what they read and maybe wont consider toxic cables in the worst case scenario..thats how marketing works nowadays.

well guys and girls...my apologies for this outburst..also to u frank..u do excellent work..its probably nothing personal from that company.... i know..( u didnt puncture the tyres of thier boss recently right? biggrin.gif ) business is business..let us make frank the VIPER biggrin.gif which jumps out of the trees and onto their backs..making them tremble of fear..ooops.to much fantasy maybe. tongue.gif ...but i think he is already doing that..as they checked this thread to find the specs for that particular cable already.....as i predicted it a while ago..it was just a matter of time before they would recognize frank as a serious competitor...Frank.. for me ur the boss and have all my respect..

Once again..i just had to write this down to get it of my chest...but then again..if people think i am overreacting..pls say so..

and frank..if u think this is to much..say the word and i will delete this post....u know me by now..i say what i feel and think..

Now i have to shut up...would be fun if we would check other competitors who uses toxic cables as reference and mention it here on this forum..just an idea..what ya think guys and girls?that would certainly be free advertisement for sure! With our remarks on it ofcourse..thats fair..right? biggrin.gif

Geesh..its 5:11am..OMG need to get to bed!

I think the posts so far are fine, but lets not get in to a discussion about competitors and what they might or might not be doing here. It will only serve to get this thread locked. wink_face.gif

 

Toxic Cables has come a long way, since it's launch last December, and i have you all to thank for that.

That's a lot and probably very flexible. Is the Scorpion the copper or pure silver version now? I'm afraid that I'm starting to lose the overview here, way too many configurations to choose from.

post #1169 of 9343

Scorpion is a copper cable.

post #1170 of 9343

As far as I know, Frank is going to reveal some new cable options soon. I also hope that there will be a list of all available configurations to help people get an overview and avoid misunderstandings..
