Thanks for clearing the specs up..

PS: your msg is not offensive, but i do admire your passion for Toxic Cables..

Wow, you prefer the O2 over all of those amps SQ wise? Could you please do a quick comparison between the Soloist and the O2?

I don't think Frank is the type of guy to be bothered by it anyway. Any ole chat keeps the thread alive.

Silver Widow IEM cable - Frank quoted 6 weeks prior to purchase, but I received it in UNDER 5 weeks.

Virus IEM cable - Frank quoted 10 days prior to purchase, I received within that time.

Frank replied to all emails / messages within 6 hours, being helpful, informative, polite and genuinely interested.

Exceptional service.

Now, the cables themselves:

I honestly hate to use this word, usually finding it lazy and overly emotive... but WOW. I'm listening against other totl's and the SW does not mess around. Will do proper comparisons in a week or so.

Pics to follow.

Initial crappy phone pics:

 

Left to right: TWAC V3, Stage93, Toxic Virus, DIY Toxic Silver Poison, Toxic SIlver Widow

 

TWac V3, Stage93, Toxic Virus, DIY Silver Poison, Silver Widow.

 

Note the similar awg of the Stage93 and Silver Widow. The SW is, however, significantly more supple and flexible.

If this were a beauty contest, the Virus would be laughing. 

 

Left to right: DIY Toxic Silver Poison, Toxic Silver Widow, Tralucent UberLeft to right: DIY Toxic Silver Poison, Toxic Silver Widow, Tralucent Uber

 

Litz design and an increase of both gold and awg, appear to cause the Widow to take everything the Poison does to the extreme, and then some. The Tralucent Uber, on the far right, is more worthy competition in that respect.

 

Top to bottom: Tralucent Uber, Toxic Silver Widow, Toxic Virus

 

 

Both Toxic cables offer ergonomic bliss, being more comfortable, flexible, and supple than any other cable I own.

Nice pics, how's the DIY kick around cable I made holding up nulliverse? Can't wait to hear your comparisons, did you see my latest I made? Practice makes perfect smily_headphones1.gif

I did indeed. Very impressive! Though that DIY SPC throw around isn't exactly shabby, particularly given it was your first. I actually prefer it to the TWac V3 both in terms of sonics and ergonomics, even if it has turned green. That Silver Poison DIY mini to mini you just did me is excellent, too. Any day now I'll be able to use it to hook up HDP-R10 with a RK MkIII.

 

Thanks beerchug.gif

I imagine I'll be selling a few after my review. The Toxic ones are going nowhere, though! I'm currently using the 1plus2 and AUD-8X, with the LS8+ soon to arrive. The 1plus2 sounds absolutely phenomenal with the Silver Widow, and as good albeit in a different way, with the Virus. The AUD-8X, having a thicker take on neutral, prefers just the SW.

 

One thing I'm sure of right of the bat, is that the $1200 Uber does not perform at a higher level than that of the Silver Widow. I still have a lot of comparing to do yet, which will be divulged in the review... but feel free to ask questions;

Nice. The uber cable is a bit overpriced IMO. I would never get it because of how thick and inflexible it is.
