But if it's a negative press about something that's far away from the built quality, it shows the critics who fails, in this case, he asked for a cable sample (not in a polite way imho from what I've read), declined by frank, then intended to buy one, declined too, hence the negative press, not about the build quality, but about the customer service, because he asked and rejected. quality wise, I've never seen any bad review about toxic cable, that alone should enough to comfort you, i guess. so i don't think you need to confront this kind of problem anymore. But why didn't you take the offer that he's willing to buy your cable Frank? I wouldn't worry about one bad review (assuming he'll write a negative one), when there's tons of positive you can find here, I think you'll find it won't taint your reputation as a cable artisan. 

 

and as for me, i don't even yet own your cables, but from what I've read is more than suffice to make me think "if i want to built a cable, it'd be Toxic Cable".

 

I've always believed that everything which in it's process involve emotion & passion would produce something that one should own. 

 

cheers

Frank is a gentleman, but never mind that, the bottom line is whether he provides a quality product and value for money.

 

I was certainly skeptical of both to begin with, but now I have no hesitation suggesting that a Toxic Cable makes every bit as big an improvement to fidelity as any upgrade in this hobby. This at costs that are relatively nothing.

 

Aesthetics aside, the Silver Widow should share a similar sonic signature to the Silver Poison, so check out my review for an idea of what to expect.

Hey lads, Im not doing this yet as I already owe Frank money for my current/ongoing order.

And Next order is going to be turntable related.

 

Anyway, 

Grado SR60's...

Im finding the stock cable a nightmare to keep untwisted etc, 

And with the PB2 coming Ive decided I'll be sending them off to Frank for a nice balanced recable.

Thing is I find they sound nice but I want to clear up the high end and add some warmth.

Which would be better -

 

Copper?

Silver?

Combo?

 

Then....

 

Widow or Poison?

 

Thanks for the help. Paul :)

Sorry, i was referring to his post @ headphiles, he mention spec & price there, and how you refused sell him one, so I assume they both are the same person, but then again, I might be wrong, they're not the same person...if it does, then my bad, and sorry for that.

 

But enough about that, let's continue writing about your cables more, love to read what the guys wrote about your cables beerchug.gif

hoped it'll be soon before long that i could taste the poison me self  wink.gif

 

anyhow, while I'm posting here, might as well ask, i'd been wondering from the time i saw your ebay page, about the HiFiMAN detachable connector, do you sell them as a pair left right & female male? or just the left & right male?

Frank I want to start writing reviews and obviously I want to include my Toxic Cables collection that is going to grow.

However when I read others reviews I see Im really not up to scratch lol.

I will start putting one together for the Silver Poison and see what you all think once its done :)

I suppose Im just saying bear with me as it may not be the greatest written review lol.

They are both the same person.

 

As for the Hifiman connectors, i do have both available, but only list one on eBay. Both come in sets for left and right.

Guys..strange things happen on this beloved forum lately...like this thingie that i feel i have to share with u my friends..

u all know i am very open and very direct and am not afraid to express what i think or feel about products i owned or owe right now or situations i get into....some of u even consider me a bit crazy (the ones who call me crazy know who i mean..lolz) .and well maybe i am.. But lately since i am a bit active on this particular thread i sometimes feel like i am a knight of the round table..defending the realm of toxic cables..redface.gif i say this..and believe me..i am totally not into company politics..but..after long thought i feel its my duty to open up to u guys about certain things that honestly bothers me more and more...

the thing is this:

 

since i am active and very direct in my way of posting i have been contacted BY PM by competitors (or indirect by affialited people) explaining me in long pm's how bad and dishonest frank must be..most recent example is a PM from someone from Headphone Lounge...why do they feel to contact me? Until now i never ever replied to any if those pm's..i only reply to personal pm's about questions I DID..i consider those pm's as unsollicited mail..and therefore read them and delete them. Honestly i think they are trying to get Franks customers (or at least the ones who are in their eyes the most loyal/active..poor me) on their side. In my opinion its really wrong that other cable makers are contacting franks most loyal  customers directly after seeing their names on his appreciation thread. Maybe its me..and maybe i am a bit paranoia..but hey..why do that in the first place..dont they know we are smart enough to have our own opinions?

after the 2nd received pm from a competitor i contacted frank..i normally dont do that as i know he is a busy man..(i prefer asking questions on the thread as u all know by now as then he can take his time to answer..lolz) so me fuzzing bout certain competitors would only maybe make him irritated i guessed.... But After 2 mails he asked me to let him know if any competitors would contact me again ( i did that last night at 4am by the way)..and him asking me that gave me a feeling they maybe also contacted others in the past?...what i respect in frank is that eventhough i told him i was contacted again..he stayed relaxed and respectfull..and said its a competitive market.NOT EVEN 1ONE BAD WORD...yes..thats frank i know from this thread.....so  i don't think this is the first time this has happened to him so i guess he stopped to worry about other cable makers messaging his customers. But i felt i had to open up..

 

anyone else contacted in this way?Am really curious bout that...if i go a bridge to far..well..i am only telling the truth here..and the truth can be harsch....sorry..but this burden was weighing to heavy on my conscience....and then i just let it out..if i offended anyone..well..u know the drill...biggrin.gif And thanks for reading.

 

edit: sorry frank..but just couldnt keep quiet anymore

Dont feel bad about opening up dude ( What is your name anyway bud??? ) its an admirable quality in the male species lol!

As for being contacted, I haven't, But it sounds to me like aggressive competitive marketing.

Its almost like cold calling.

 

Anyway, Like yourself I find myself becoming quite loyal to Frank for several reasons.

 

One. His craftsmanship & professionalism is outstanding!

Two. He doesn't fail to stay in contact.

Three. Frank is very flexible & laid back. 

Four. He not only has respect from us, But shows us respect and trust in return. ( Frank knows what Im on about biggrin.gif )

To be honest, this is getting quite tiring and old, contacting someone else's customer to talk negatively about them is something i would never to, it's just wrong in my opinion. I don't even talk negatively about competitors to my own customers, let alone go as far as to contact their.

 

I would have reported this as i have been asked to, as this has happened before, but did not want to drag my customers in to this. I hope mods will do something about this, as these people have been warned about this and using the facilities of this forum to speak of competitors.

 

I really cannot be bothered with all that anymore, i have wasted to much time on things like this already.

 

Anyhow guys, lets have a pre order  and forget about this.

 

As you all know, i received the Litz White Widow some time ago, although i have not been selling it to anyone yet as i was waiting for the customs for, so i can see what taxes i needed to pay and work out the final costs.

 

Pre order Prices, valid for 7 days from today.

 

Headphone Cables

 

6ft £105  8ft £125

 

IEM £120.

I have been contacted by three cable makers in the past - when I was more active in the DIY cable gallery. 2 of them asked if I would like to review their cables. None of them said bad stuff about Frank / Toxic cables directly in the PM's. I thought it a bit weird though, having never done any reviews.

 

Edit - sorry Frank, didnt mean to drag it out.

At the end of the day they can try and fail.

We all know better anyway.

 

Sorry if we've derailed your thread mate.

 

Once I have that custom hd25 cable I'll put a review up 

and like I said Im gonna work on the SP review very soon.

 

Lastly and most annoyingly of me to ask...

Did you send out the Pelican yet? Just getting an idea of when to stick around at home lol.
