According to Frank's list the regular SP is 26awg and the SV is 25.5awg. I checked a chart on the internet for the diameter translation and tbh looking at the pictures the SV look way bigger than I would have imagined them just from the facts on the paper.

maybe because its more then 1 strands braided together..and each braid has 0,5 less (25,5 instead of 26 in total) more..so when braiding them together u need more space andtherefore it looks much more thicker..does this make sense guys? biggrin.gif

Yes, the top wire is the Widow and it does indeed look much larger then the SP, this would be due to have several bundles of wires twisted together and also due to the 80 strands in each wire, having it's own insulation.

The wire is much more durable now, due to the extra thickness, i also had the dielectric made a little thicker then on the SP.

Frank does your new silver widow now take the spot as your best and flagship cable, or is the venom still your best yet? Venom is only for headphones and not IEMs right?

I am currently not taking orders on the Venom, it takes too long to make and i have too many orders, so i don't have the time to spend 2-3 days on one single cable.

 

The Venom will still be sold to existing customers and those who have enquired about it previously, but no new enquiries, for now, unless you are willing to wait a very long time.

Thanks again! Frank! For the beautifully cooked 8 wires copper cable. They look as great as usual. and quite flexible too. 

 

I thought silver is responsible for detail, well I am wrong.:) 8 wire copper cable is the most detailed cable I have ever heard to date. It allows you to hear everything in the song. The difference is very very noticeable!  This is going to sound great on my JH16 though I didn't intend to buy the cable for it lol.

 

The price is indeed great too which I am not gonna discuss here, you will have to suck up on Frank.very_evil_smiley.gif

I just bought some of Franks new 18awg SPC, and thought I would post a couple of pics of it.

Looks pretty incredible in the flesh. It looks how I would imagine high spec fibre optic cable would look!
