I am using an Akiva.

I have never heard any of the Linn cartridges. I assume you are pleased with it. I have always admired the LP-12.

  Hello,

 

  I am about to order a cable from Toxic for my Sennheiser IE80... I asked Frank and he says the Silver is the best one but before i      

send the money i would like some other opinions...by the way i am not bothered about the cost) I already have a silver cable which i find just a fraction hard in the treble... Are Frank's cables typical of silver or can i safely assume his will be better than the norm..?  Te cable i currently have is the Galaxy Silver from Song's Audio.

 

  I really appreciate any feedback...  Thank you

What's 'typical' silver sound like?

Certainly not hard in the treble if its a decent quality. I feel quality is far more important with silver than with copper.

 

I am a silver cable fan and have just ordered the Silver Poison for my HE6's. wink_face.gif

You won't be dissapointed. I have Silver Poison for mine and also my LCD-2.  Micro detail without a hint of glare, just perfect!

 

I'm Nigel from Brum also (now in Kiddy) beerchug.gif

When everyone bought these cables - silver poison. Did you all use - google checkout. The conversion rate comes to $262.77  This is really high compared to what Frank gave me for total in british pounds.  I that total correct?

 

 

  thanks

  thanks

I was just talking to you right, with the Oyaide on the HiFiMAN cable + international shipping, the total is £169, so at the current exchange rate, $262 seems about right.

 

Thank you for your order.

Another satisfied customer here! Got the http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HiFiMan-HE6-HE500-HE5-LE-HE4-HE300-6ft-Cryo-OCC-Stranded-Silver-Copper-Cable-/110911186133?pt=UK_Computing_Sound_Vision_Audio_Cables_Adapters&hash=item19d2d264d5

 

for my HE500's and for me it is a worthwhile upgrade. For one, there is very little noise at all when moving it around which is very important. It is clearly professionally made and does NOT look like it was made in a hurry (like some cables I have bought, no names mentioned). The sound, (always subjective ofcourse..) is noticeably smoother, deeper, fuller, and in a word "better". 

 

Cheers Frank bigsmile_face.gif

I'll be receiving one of Franks 8-wire IEM cables. Considering how much I enjoy the Scorpion and Silver Poison cables I cannot wait to share my thoughts on this new 8-wire model with the rest of you. biggrin.gif

post #254 of 9465

Does anyone know what the difference in sound is between copper, silver plated and silver wire?
