Who needs a headphone manufacturer complimenting my cables when i have all you guys to do it. biggrin.gif

oook...didn't see that coming. Well that is not quite right from my perspective, but hey...we all know the quality of your cables :D

In my opinion the alleged solicitation of goods or fees for personal gain is unconscionable in this context. As organising head-fi meets and posting impressions is a labour of love and not something done for profit.

Good on Frank for standing firm and refusing to gift this guy a cable.

Cheers,
Andy.

P.S. For those of you unaware of Franks generosity, as the organiser of the 2012 UK Head-Fi Meet I can personally attest that he donated over £1,000 of audio kit to the charity raffle.

Cheers bud!!

The Solo really does make a huge improvement to iDevices doesn't it! biggrin.gif

 

And don't get me started on the White Widow for my HD25's yet,

I mean, I've only listened to it half balanced and with zero burn-in 

clocked in so far, However Im already slightly blown away! 

 

The Silver Poison is a superb re-cable for the IE8's and it sounds epic now its had time to burn in and settle,

So it only seems awesome that the White Widow already sounds on par with the burnt in SP without any burn-in.

The Boomslang I haven't had a proper run with yet, Just a few tracks on Audirvana, Mind you it does really well as a desktop DAC.

Sounded pretty good so far.

That's probably sane advice on any custom items. As long as you have a few on order so they come in somewhat regularly. :) I just had a look and I am now on the 4th page of a certain amplifier.

 

Enjoying my Silver Widows with the LCD-3s right now... well worth the wait. What's the usual burn-in time with this cable and was it noticeable to anyone? I loved it from day one, but IF it gets even better, I don't mind. :)

I was pleasantly surprised that my Taboo came in about a month faster than expected. I hope you have the same experience with that. I found that the Widows were great right out of the post. They settled into their happy place for me at around 50 hours but I have had cables take a couple of hundred to be fully burned in. YMMV. The results were a final smoothing of treble. I am slumming with Silver Poison's now as I sent the Silver Widows back in the be re-terminated for Balanced HD800 use.
