I think it has been mentioned before that Frank's SPC cables are generally brighter sounding than his pure silver, although I could be wrong.

Where do I check out the prices of the various cables for IEMs?

Can't seem to find them anywhere on the site.

 

Thanks.

Thanks.

A lot of his cables aren't on his website. Just shoot him an email.

So SPC are as bright or more than Silver ? This would also mean they have the same emphasis (or more) on highs as Silver ? I'm interested in this, maybe others who have had different types of cable / wire to compare can post their impressions.

IMO good quality silver cables do not have an 'emphasis' in the highs. However because they usually extend much further in the hf's than most copper cables and can be lighter in the bass you can get that impression.

Wow, been away for a couple of days and we have several new pages.

 

Thanks for your impressions Project86 and everyone else, it is very much appreciated, it's you guys that keep Toxic going.

 

The 24AWG SPC can be bright, but i find it to be a good match with the HD6XX, not so much with the Audez'e, but that's just me. I do have a 18AWG version and this one actually works quite well.

 

Those are indeed modified Valab XLR, not available to buy as a 4Pin version currently.

 

Remember lads, i have a very limited amount of Silver Poison and Silver Widow, available with my French Silk sleeving, i think i have just enough currently for another 4 SW with the French Silk.

This is the standard Poison and SW with the PE sleeving that has the Silk over it, in black/brown, very nice.

 

Here is some eye candy of a couple of recent cables i made.

The Silver Widow is a silver cable with some gold in it, right?

Correct...

According to this eBay listing http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sennheiser-HD800-6ft-Pure-OCC-Silver-cable-1-4-Viablue-and-others-available-/120980918646?pt=UK_AudioVisualElectronics_HomeAudioHiFi_Headphones&hash=item1c2b065176

Silver Poison is also pure silver with gold in it.  What is the difference between Silver Poison and Silver Widow?  I only know the cost is different.
