Yeah, I used 2 HD 800 in two different locations L3000.gif + L3000.gif

 

I might try LCD-2 later.

Hello everybody,

 

I am new to this thread but I have been waiting a long time for my toxic cable (still 5 weeks to wait tho frown.gif). I am sure that the longer I wait the better it's going to be! 

 

I tried to ask the question to Franck on eBay but you seems very busy with work, so I will try to get the answer from a fellow head-fier. Is it possible to get a balanced to 6mm interconnection? I would like to get a balanced amp in the future for my LCD2, but right now I cannot afford it, so I was wondering if I could get the balanced cable with an adapter (the all thing made at the toxic cable sauce of course) biggrin.gif

I would assume Frank has made some before. Very simple to do, I even made one for myself.

Frank, would there be much of a quality loss having this kind of adapter in the chain? I'm wondering whether I should get something like this for my Silver Widow rather than having them re-terminated at a later date. If you think it might effect sq however, then I won't bother

I would love to know that too!

Why would it have an influence on sound quality? If I understand correctly, Frank uses the same type of solder, the same high quality plugs and the same wire for these adaptors...

I have read of people saying that it makes a noticible difference, personally i don't feel you would notice much, if any difference. Although i do tell customers to try and avoid adapters if possible, if your paying for an expensive silver cable, you don't really want a lot of copper pins in the signal path.

 

You could also opt for an adapter system, like below. This is what i use, the mini XLR also have much smaller pins, which makes me feel better.

Could you please let me know how much this interconnections will cost? I can start with a XLR to 6mm right now and down the track get a XLR to balanced :)

I have noted the 1/4" jack on your order.

Hi Frank,

 

Since the performance of toxic cables have proved excellent and outstanding for headphones, I wonder if they will also perform the same when used as interconnects.  Have you any plans to launch interconnects using the same headphone cables ?

I'm pretty sure that he makes interconnects if you ask him to.

Would you be able to change that to a XLR connection? And add to my order an XLR to 6mm jack interconnection cable?
