Absolutely, the 8 wire hybrid IEM cables are what inspired this cable. Price is not going to be too expensive, in between the Poison and Widow hopefully.

Litz 2? That means you could do a micro wire for IEM's? two wires,1 IEM cable would be nice.

Black widow or silver widow?which one?

I am listening to my new 8 wire Arsenic cable on the LCD-2 right now. Frank has never sold any of the Arsenic cables before, so it truly is something special for me to have this cable here! The Arsenic is a hybrid consisting of three different materials, because it is actually two of Frank's Widow cables together, precisely the White Widow and Silver Widow. Due to this special mix, it contains copper, silver and gold!

So... the questions obviously are: a) how does it sound, and b) is it an improvement over the stock Audez'e cable? Answers: a) great, and b) it's a Toxic Cable, what kind of question is that?! biggrin.gif No seriously, there is more detail, better bass and an overall richer sound. That's what I can say after a quick comparison, a more thorough review and pictures of this beatiful cable will follow in a few days.

 

Edit: I am aware of the fact that a cable itself does not have any sound. What I have written above are my experiences with my gear wink.gif for me, this cable is less restraining and lets more music pass through (in comparison to the stock cable). I hope my descriptions are understandable, as writing about how one perceives sound is quite difficult redface.gif

In between the Poison and Silver Widow, I will keep the price of the new cable as low as i possibly can.

I wonder why you are not showing interest in Frank's new full hybrid wire? wink.gif

post #2816 of 7522

He is, in a way. It's just he is hoping to see a specific variation of the wire I guess. Right now, of all the cable providers around, Frank is the only one I know of integrating two types of different wire into a Litz 2  cable. It's gonna make for a stunning cable and interesting configurations. I think it may be a bit too early to consider other variations of the cable just yet. Let him mess around and try a few himself. We haven't even heard the first one he's teased.

I was joking wink.gif hifimanrookie is a curious guy and always in search of special things, isn't that right rookie wink.gif I know that nobody besides Frank has heard that new full hybrid cable. Heck, I am the first owner of an Arsenic cable as of today, and that one wasn't announced yesterday. There may be other cables that no one has tried yet. Frank offers many different cables and configurations, I appreciate everyone who inquires about them.

Guys, I received my Silver Widow this week. 

It looks awesome. I don't like jewelry for men and don't wear anything except the wedding ring and a watch, but I must say this new cable does indeed look good on me :))

 

The sound is amazing. Took my lcd2 to a whole new level.

 

I love my new cable and I must say Frank was very supporting and very responsive every time I had a question.

 

I will soon write a full review on Silver Widow on my blog. For now I am letting it burn in and I love it more every day.

Not yet, the SW is 25.5AWG and the BW is 22AWG, so to do a hybrid of these two, i would need to get the BW in the same gauge.

Maybevery_evil_smiley.gif u know me so well..

actually am already getting myself in another adventure concerning a certain component.it will be one of a kind custommade and handmade headphone amp with dac inside the same enclosure..built specifically after my specs.. Its from blue circle audio..

if i am right that will be something awesome..am waiting for a proposal now..hope it will be within my budget, as thanks to taxes return this year biggrin.gif Its double of what i wanted to spend on the new nad m51 dac...the wait is killing me. And if i do it..then my almost perfect 337 and all my tubes and my hm602 (best dap i heard until now) will be for sale then..wink.gif

and on top of that am already waiting for a balanced cable with completely separated left and right channels from frank. So two cables..one for left one for right.

As soon i have that cable i will do a short compare with the standard silverplated coppercable of hifiman, the dhc custommade cable i bought last year, my black widow 22awg i got this year and the new custommade cable frank is cooking for me
