And it sounded absolutely wonderfull...a full balanced dual mono 8wire bw..u have to try it..it was millions ahead soundwise compared to the regular single ended 4wire bw i had first...
Hope this answered ur question.

Ah I see. So you haven't used it balanced yet?

Is it a secret or are you going to spill the beans?

Hints:
1. Blue Circle Audio
2. Custommade
3. Balanced
4. Based on their NSL speakeramp, but with only 5watts into 50 ohm (class-AB) and tuned for he6 only. (My next headphone)
Check google for reviews!

What is the current waiting time? I could do with a nice silver cable.
post #4390 of 9549
It's like 12 weeks.

Oh dear. They don't come up very often in the sale forums. Looks like I'll just have to place an order and wait.

No, they don't. Waiting will be frustrating but you have to wait for the good things smily_headphones1.gif

You may find it worthwhile having a look at what's wrong with the rest of the system and purchase something like Silver Widows which have exceptional synergy with the LCD-2s in a good system. However if your system is fine and that is just your preference, then fair enough and any copper cable will do. But do know that it won't help that congested, ok the nice word is "intimate", soundstage a bit.

 

I am using O2/ ODAC with my LCD2.2 + Q cables.  

I was happy with the sound, lean and fast.

Until I received my UM Merlin, then I thought that with it was a little too lean.

Switched back to the stock cables, it was better, but then, the veil is back.

 

So, I'd like to give other cables a try.

Copper ones of course.

 

The spec of the Black Widow is pretty similar to Q cables.

Litz, 20+ gauge.

 

Perhaps I should to try the Scorpion.

What is the difference in sound quality between the 18 vs 24 gauge?

 

Frank has also suggested the Copper Venom - I would assume that this is out of my budget, anyone using this cable?
