What gauge are these btw? I've seen them already today when I checked the thread at work. They don't seem to be that thick. Aren't speaker wires usually around 13 gauge or something similar?

Until he has time to check this thread again he won't be having time to write up something anyways. regular_smile%20.gif The formatting could be done by us.

As for sleeving on cables, i for one, do not find sleeving and shielding necessary on a short headphone cables and personally prefer them without.

 

I do have both sleeved and naked versions of all my cables listed, other then the Scorpion and all are the same price, there is no additional cost to have the cable sleeved. The sleeved version of the Silver Poison also comes shielded with a copper braid.

 

The sleeving i use as a preference is soft Nylon, although i do have most types of other sleeving and shielding in stock, there is not actually much i don't have, so if nyone has any special requirements, you just need to let me know. Kevlar, stanless steel, you name it, i have it.

 

Silk sleeving is nothing new, it has been used for cables for over a decade. I am looking in to having some French silk  made for my other cables, but i need to choose just one or two colours for those, so any input would be most welcomed.

 

Brown French silk is currently available for the Silver Poison.

I will be keeping the gold content confidential, as this plays a huge part in the final performance of the cable, but i can say, the new Silver Widow does have a considerably higher content then the SP.

 

So the new silver widow is similar to the SP as it is has silver and gold in it, although more gold content than the SP?

 

Does the silver widow trump the SP in terms of sonic capabilities? what are the difference in the sound quality of the SW compared to the SP? I would imagine both are very similar.

Ooh, I would really love some black french silk with my Silver Poison. With the french silk sleeving, would they come shielded with a copper braid as well?

Each wire is individually sleeved on the SP, so no copper braid. Did you want the copper braid on your current order, as i have it noted as naked.

 

I do also have some pale blue silk for the SP, this colour goes well with the HD800.

It is also a type 2 litz cable, all strands are individually insulated from each other.

 

I have quite a few Silver Widow already sold, so i will wait for those people to post impressions, some of them also have the SP.

My preference would be for black silk with my SP. Do you think those will come in time? Dark brown silk also seems like a viable option.

I won't be ordering any other colours for some time, maybe in February. I do have dark brown, you can email or PM  me to discuss.
