Toxic Cables - Impressions and Discussion Thread - Page 289

That might be a Frank question/discussion, he can probably point you in the right direction.  Having both the LCD2 and LCD3, it's without a doubt the LCD3 is a step up....they both have the same signature but the LCD3 just has more resolving mids and a better punch for bass....I listen to a lot of vocals so I favor the Audeze quite a bit.  The HE6 is a better overall headphone for a wider genre IMO.  I use Silver Poison currently for the Audeze phones and I haven't listened to it enough to report definitely improvements yet.  Hope this helps you......One thing people say is for sure true.....no need to buy the LCD2 since you'll buy the LCD3 shortly afterwards anyway haha.....My LCD2 is my travel setup now when I go on big trips and need to setup a mobile listening station.

Thanks for the info. Actually I ordered a LCD2 last month but luckily I was told that they are out of stock and therefore I cancel the order and thinking of LCD3 instead as I mostly listen to jazz vocals. I have been struggling for some time without action but with your experience I think LCD3 should be my choice. Most probably I will use SW for LCD3 as there are many good feedback from folks here.

I second this, LCD-3 and SW is a very good choice. LCDs in general are great for jazz vocals!

+1 Just received back my SW reterminated to balanced. Good times are back! No more of stock torture to endure.

I asked him a few weeks ago and he said £110 with 4 strands and oyaide jacks on both sides.

Looks like Joe's got some serious cables thing going: http://www.head-fi.org/a/2013-head-fi-summer-buying-guide-cables-accessories

Based on looks alone Frank's cables win this round for me. As I haven't heard the others I can't comment on that.

 

I can't be more pleased at the moment with the combo of Balanced Silver Widows + LCD-3s + Taboo MK3. The synergy is just fantastic. If on my SS amplifier the SWs were just a smidge sharper on the treble than I liked, on the tube amp it's a perfect match. It probably had to do with the edgy treble of the SS and not the cable itself.

He works a night shift as it's well known that headphone cables sound better if they're made in the dark hours.ph34r.gif

How many hours would you say you have on your SW?

It's quite a good while since I've originally got it. I only had it reterminated recently. Thus I don't remember much regarding the burn-in as it was a while ago.

Okay, I have now made up my mind to go for LCD3 instead of LCD2.  As I have a SW for my HD800 I have PM Frank to make a pair of HD800>>LCD3 adapter for me so that I don't need to wait for +16 weeks for a new SW cable gs1000.gif Hope the waiting time is +4 to +6 weeks for the adapter biggrin.gif Still waiting for Franks reply.
