post #166 of 9356

I'm a little sad, I just found out that the silver venom cable will only be offered in silver unlike the viper or scorpion.  Not a huge deal, but still I really like the look of the translucent blue cable pictured a few pages back and I'm a sucker for good silver.  Oh well, what can you do confused_face.gif

It's the Silver Poison, not Venom and unfortunately the Poison is and will be, only available in clear, unlike the Viper and Scorpion.

 

Sorry, but for the moment i have no plans to offer the Poison in any other colour.

Just received the SPC Viper cable from Toxic Cables. It's a 24AWG braid, each section comprised of 50 strands of silver plated OCC 7N copper. I got mine in clear, but it will also be available in translucent blue or translucent black. This one has black connectors, but clear connectors are forthcoming.

 

This is the second cable from the top in a line of 6 IEM cables Toxic Cables is launching. Other options will include the Silver Poison and OCC Copper Scorpion, and some others that I don't know about yet. The Viper sells for £105 for pre-orders. 

 

I'm gonna use it for a week or so, then send it around to people who would like to check it out. Poetik is first on the list and we'll go from there. Veteran HeadFiers with good feedback only please!

 

Please don't PM me about it quite yet. It's too early to get a list started. I'll update when I'm ready though.

This is the cable, paired with my Heir Audio 8.A customs. Sorry for the poor iPad camera!

So it is available with translucent black around the silver wire? I would love that so tarnishing wouldn't show. Is that option for section from the Y-split up to the earphones as well?

The silver wire is not available in trans black, it's the silver plated copper and the copper that are available in translucent black.

Ah, got it. That may interest me as well. Could you PM me with pricing, and availability? 

 

Edit-

 

Man, Frank is quite prompt with communication! My order is already in for the silver plated copper Viper, with translucent black. Shipping time is quoted at about 3 weeks from now. Looking forward to this. Kudos to great customer service.

I quite like the black over moulded conectors on the Viper cable - looks good against the Viablue at the opposite end.

Ahh... 24AWG is so bad ass.

So I snapped some better pics for everyone. Once again, this is the Toxic Cables SPC Viper cable in 24AWG. Frank says he finds this one a bit thick, so he also offers it in 26AWG. I don't have a problem with it myself.

Viablue connector is the newer, smaller kind, which works better in this application than the larger version. Here's a shot of the two types.

My UM Merlin has recessed sockets, and the Viper fits well.

Beautifully made cable. Thanks for the pics.
