i did try a silver cable from another brand though..just to check how the BW would compare...no match...silver was to bright, to light in bass and voices sounded without any wieght in them..the silver excelleled in detail though...it was a bit better...but not good enough to make me want a silver based cable...but u never know..in oktober i will be attending the london meet and am sure some will let me listen to their he500 with silver cabling...or maybe frank finds it in his heart to let a SW go around in europe to try out on our he500..that would be perfect.. FRANK??????? wink.gif

Go on, just order the SW, it really works wth HE-500s. smile_phones.gif

I think Frank has one or two helpers but still he needs to be involved in each final product before dispatch to ensure quality.

To those that inquired.....I didn't ask for the box.....I didn't actually have any special requests for Frank outside of cable specifications and terminations.  I appreciate whole heartedly he threw in the box for my HD800 Copper Venom cable.  You guys will have to ask Frank as to how to get that box.  =)

well..i guess..its the box when u order the 18AWG copper venom..that makes sense...as its his most expensive cable (except for the silver venom ofcourse)... but i guess a balanced 8wire SW (as my cable..but then made as SW) is in the same price league or maybe more expensive...

How much is the copper venom?

Whilst I know this is an appreciation thread and I aware of the quality of Frank's cables but I purchased a set of Toxic cables at Christmas and was told they would be three weeks, then 8 weeks.  I kept waiting - I don't mind waiting for quality either.  I was told the next week, then the next week, then definitely on the Friday .... nothing ....It got to mid March and still nothing despite promises.  Frank was always good at replying to emails and when I asked for a refund this was duly received.  It was the fact that Frank kept promising to send the cables that was disappointing and needn't seem particulalry concerned when I was fed up that they hadn't been received!

I'd have to agree, for my cables I told Frank I was in no hurry as I know of his popularity workload....I think my initial orders were placed back in October/September of 2012 and I just received my cables earlier this week hah.  Frank has a lot of customers and like everyone else things come up and with his limited workforce/resources and his obvious attention to detail (even down to how the cables are packed and presented in the little bags folded nicely) perfectionist stance on cables....it is truly truly worth the wait.  The wait is not for everyone but these are true luxury items for our gear....I assume most of us already have current cables we're using anyway while waiting for Frank's.  I've been listening for a couple days and of the cables I've heard, I've felt like the basic signature hasn't changed but there does seem to some small improvements in various ways......hard to tell since it's so slight and could be placebo but it doesn't change the build quality and connector/wires material he uses.....first class stuff.  Will be giving more impressions as I listen to this more.  Sorry you felt like you had to cancel, maybe when you can wait a bit more down the line you can try Frank again....truly nice stuff.

He's even holding a competition for free cables for life (not sure what this means) when he clears up his backlog.

biggrin.gif Means the winner can order a few cables of their choice, every year Toxic Cables is around.

There will also be a few others for my customers, including a full HE-500 setup, headphone, Amp/Dac and cables. 

 

It will be a great relief when the backlog is cleared, believe me, there is no one who wants to get all the orders to my customers more then me.

Thanks Frank! Can't wait until you clear the backlog and whoever wins the competition will be a very lucky person!

Your cable was Purchased in December and given a 8 week wait time, then when the cable was ready i contacted you to let you know it would be shipping in the morning, you asked that you would want to return the cable if you did not like it, this was declined as i do not accept returns and you were refunded. After being refunded, you contacted me saying you still wanted the cable but wanted to try it first and again this was declined. Few days later you contacted me wanting to buy a Silver Widow, this message was never replied to. This was all several months ago.

Looks a bit odd that that is his first post...
