That's funny, I asked that on page 18:

All depends on what you think your system would benefit from.

Must have missed that, thanks. So silver/copper is the way to go for balance and/or if you have a hard time deciding things like me.

You can mostly ignore Lugbug1's general rule (not saying it isn't true elsewhere) when it comes to Toxic Cables' Silver Poison--it is both detailed AND has a nicer bass response and sounds more rich than the TWag, to use an example of a typical silver cable. So, I'd say it makes a good choice if you want to go silver. I'm sure Frank's other cables are great, too.

I was looking for a good replacement cable for my HE400 and ordered the basic OCC copper cable from Frank. Just received them and have been listening for a few hours.  What a wonderful cable! Beautifully built, reasonably priced and quite nice sounding!  Not as exotic as some here but works for me.

Good to hear! Ever since you talked about this cable at the Toronto meet you've got me looking at one as well.

If the NHL can't get its act together, we'll all need good sound to pass the time of another lock out.....Toxic's are awesome.

This is up to your ears. I can hear a difference from cable to cable, however, you ears may not. It's like Bigfoot. I believe they exist, because I've had my own encounter, and some people don't, because there's no tangible evidence that they are actually there (which is completely wrong by the way).

Well put.

I won't get into an argument, but we're only a few months away before the DNA study reveals it's a real, living hominid.

I am looking in to having an overmoulded cable made. Might be available in a few months, but no promises.
