There is indeed an improvement with the 8 wire version, the 8 wire Scorpion rocks, how much of an improvement i will leave to you guys to post.

 

I have not worked out the pricing yet, once i do, i will post a list and pricing of all my cables.

 

The final version of the 26 and 22AWG White Widow, will be here in little over a week.

Guys, this guy really wants to buy some cables and he does not know what to buy. Let's help him on emptying his wallet evil_smiley.gif!  He read the reviews as I did before buying the SIlver Widow, but he didn't find anything about the differences between the copper and silver toxic cables.

Currently listening to the 1964-V3 with the Silver Widow. Damn! biggrin.gif

 

Doesn't make much sense to use such an expensive cable with a set of budget CIEMs, but my Heir 6.A LE has yet to arrive. Very curious to learn how the 6.A sounds with the Silver Widow.

 

That Toxic Cables y-splitter looks really good by the way.

Staal how'd you score the 6.A's??? Thems on the extinct list.......

post #2076 of 9364

A while back "The Wizard" announced that they had found 5 more sets of drivers for the 6.A. Having talked to Project86 about them they seemed to be what I'm currently looking for in a monitor, so I jumped on them right away.

 

I think there's only a total of 15 sets out there counting the 5 new ones, so I figured it was better to get a set now and sell them again if they don't fit the bill rather than forever wonder about the one that got away.. tongue.gif

I found a cable that I like better than my Toxic Cables Scorpion..it's a DIY Toxic Cables Silver Poison.  It's Cogs and Gears cable-I resoldered the plugs to Westone, since he had Triple Fi pins.  It really is a great sounding cable, and has taken my JH16 to a new level.  The level of detail is amazing, without sounding too clean or silibant, while still retaining that great bass.  Now my Triple Fi 10 gets my Scorpion cable biggrin.gif.  I think I'm going to recable my Fostex with Toxic's SPC cable now.

That's to be expected, The Scorpion is my cheapest cable but by no means a slouch when it comes to performance, the Silver Poison is better and it's no surprise that you would prefer it.

 

If you think the level of detail is amazing, just wait till you get to try the Silver Widow. wink.gif

The RC-4 "Copper Venom" in my opinion is the best cable for the HD800, but i would not say it's my top cable for all the headphones. If you are looking for thunderous bass, the RC-4 is for you. With the HD800, it's a perfect match.

I should start taking some pictures of the cables I made with them wires but they all have been interconnects and lent out to my colleauge loloolololol  

which also brings me to another problem, since i have been using them to make 3 wire/4 wire/6 wire/8 wire interconnect, I have ran out of length to make darn headphone cables :(

Guess I'll throw in some lengthy orders sometime soon!

post #2085 of 9364

I just caught a glimpse of my solder pot when i was walking past, have a look at this.

 

This is the pot i use for the Silver Widow to burn the litz insulation off, as the wires are really fine, and due to the high temperature of the solder in the put, the tip of the wires do melt off a little. It looks like the high gold content from the melted wire is depositing at the surface.

 

I use a separate pot for the Black Widow.

 

  

 

 

The dark patches are holes in the surface, not dirt biggrin.gif, and the orange is flux that is used to help burn away the insulation.

 

I find it fascinating, how it has all gathered at the top, i clean the top off after each wire and did not notice it when making the cables, so my guess would be the it gathered at the top while the solder cooled.
