If you fancy something that adds air, micro detail, open the LCD-2s a bit more, as well as add more treble extension, go silver. More musicality, body, warmth, bass presence, more focus on vocals, go copper. Copper is still good on the treble. My preference with the LCD-2s is the former, in particular Silver Widow, but yours may differ.

 

Much tougher choice with the LCD-3s though... I am still trying to crack this one. The LCD-3s are more detailed than the LCD-2s, thus silver brings through more garbage out of bad recordings, especially on the treble and thus while silver is a great match, it's not a perfect one. I would probably also prefer a bit more focus on the vocals. However the LCD-3s are already very musical and warm sounding thus copper isn't perfect either, so here is where my dilema lies.

 

I suspect this is where Frank's latest wizardry may help, but I have no way to know.

Silver Widow VS Silver Poison

 

The Silver Poison has been my go-to cable for quite a while, it's a silver alloyed with a judicious touch of gold. I liked it so much, I even wrote a review for it here. It retails for £155, i think it's a great cable.

 

The Silver Widow is Frank's type 2 litz cable, which means that every single strand is individually insulated. It's also a silver and gold alloy, although this time Frank's keeping the exact amounts proprietary to beat any attempts by competitors to follow in his (gold) dust...

It retails for £210, a step above the Poison.

 

I've been listening to the Silver Widow for a few weeks now and I can say that it shares the smooth, detailed yet with a hint of warmth signature that the Silver Poison has. They are siblings, but I'd say that the Widow takes its place as the big brother.

 

Silver Poison to the right         Silver Widow to the left

My camera isn't so hot, to say the least, so let me say that both cables look great in real life.

 

The Silver Poison is a little thinner and a bit easier to coil, but the Silver Widow is very comfortable and easy to wear for me.

 

Both are great, you can't go wrong.

Give the guy a break guys. He's a one man band, working silly hours to get all the orders out. We know he's swamped, so it shouldn't be a big suprise when he falls behind on corespondance every now and again. I'm sure he'll update everyone as soon as he can :)

But I want to post every other day about how he didn't reply to an email!!!!

Sorry lads, been really busy making cables.

 

I have just finished going through a lot of emails, there are a few left from today, so if you sent a message before today and have not received a reply yet, please send it again.

 

I will going through PM's and eBay messages tonight and finish off tomorrow.

 

Here is the first small lot of the current batch, i have over another 200 that i am still working, but trying to get the earlier ones out, rather then wait till all are finished.

It'd be worth emailing the website administrator/webmaster/moderator and pointing out that they're inadvertently promoting counterfeit products and asking them to remove the post(s). Google Translate is pretty accurate with linguistic assistance.

 

Cheers,

Andy.

 

Thanks Andy,

 

I have done, the forum owner is actually a dealer of mine, and the thread had been locked.

 

Tried Google translate and it's still very difficult to understand anything.

Good luck with the sale John, that was an amazing sounding cables.

 

I am thinking of having a for sale section on my new site, when it's finally done, where customers can advertise cables they purchased from me. Will give those needing a cable in a hurry, a chance to buy a used one.
