No I mean my dac only has 1 rca output so I have to switch between the taboo and my speaker amp. My speakers are too inefficient to be played through the taboo

If you read through the thread, you will find that all the cables being received in a matter of 9 weeks or even 2 weeks have all been IEM cables and not headphone. I have also always stated on this thread that IEM cables have a shorter wait time then headphone cables and this is due to several reason, with one being that they are much quicker to make and on the majority of the cables, i have someone else do most of the work ans i have to just solder the jack on, while the other end has OM connectors.

Yes, cables are taking considerably longer then i had originally estimated, but this is not done on purpose. I am improving my cables all the time. You just have to look at the pictures on my site and how those cables look, compared to the one you finally receive, to know how much nicer/better it looks and making those improvements to those cable does mean the cables take longer to build.

For me, every cable that leaves my door, need to be perfect, and i go to extreme lengths to make sure of this. This includes everything down to the heatshrink on the connectors. I honestly change/cut off 2 or 3 heatshrink off every connector, before i am happy with one, as it need to be straight and matching on both sides and this is not easy to do with heatshrink and this again means it takes 2-3 times longer for me to do a connector, then it would someone else. Then there are the aluminum splitters on some cables, so now i am dealing with screws, washers and nuts to contend with, rather then some heatshrink over a tube, so this all takes longer.  Just go online and compare the finish on my cable to others and you might just see what i mean.

I am doing my best, i am working as 24/7 to try and get the pending orders out and that's all i can do. The has been long and i appreciate how most are sticking it through and promise that every single person who has paid for a cable will receive what they paid for. If you cannot wait then please ask for a refund and i would refund you as soon as i see the request, i am not holding anyone's money to ransom and neither do you need to worry if you will ever get what you paid for, as you will.....................finally frown.gif

From now on, i will do my best to message every person when you order ships, so that you are not wondering if your order has shipped yet or maybe even got lost (only ever happened 3 times). This will also hopefully give me more time to work on cables, as i will have less emails to deal with, with customers wondering if order has shipped.

Sorry for the long post, i am trying my best.

Back to work biggrin.gif

Frank..u know u didnt need to post this right???as we all know how u work...and we appreciate that..yes..some have doubts..but that will always happen.. Even if ur delivery time would be 4 weeks time..as it would be about quality control or something else..people are very demanding if it concerns money... Thats human..i believe ur doing a great job..and i know myself how long ur working days are frank..we had been active on pm for my cable at 4 am sometimes! And same morning at 7 i got next reply pm...yes guys..these are inhuman hours..i know..as i do the same..but i think frank even misses sometimes a night sleep..even those 3 hours to get ur cables ready are not reached sometimes... And yes.waiting.time is long.. But we also know we are with thousands and he is just one (or 2 as he has a helper now for th easy stuff)... I saw a pic of him saying that was a months work..and those were more then 50.000 (GBP?) worth of cables He wrote with that post..can u imagine how much work that is??
As many also stated after receiving their first cables after 6months (or more) also...i will be more then happy to wait LONG for my next cable..even if I HAVE TO WAIT FOR A YEAR!!! Funny is that i am starting to like to wait for my stuff..it makes me more anxious to get it..

am now counting the days until my new amp arrives...still 3months to go of the 6....lolz

damn..i will be luckiest man after receiving it...

So once again...frank..u didnt need to post this...but i know ur a nice and honest guy who tries to help every one as best as u can without lowering ur extreme quality and in the process try to improve it... Thats why u posted this..and it says lots bout u mate

Sorry..just had to post this..couldnt hold back..just want people to understand this... Wish more brands would take such a high pride in the quality of their products instead of lower delivery times as soon customers get nervous....

Ask urself..what u prefer...worse quality cabling and get it in a month or two (other premium brand are having longer delivery dates.also lately since they also need to meet the custom wishes of customers who spend lots of money on their cables) or waiting longer and get ur dream cable for the moment that is..as most of us shortly after buying first cable from frank buy a better one from him..i wonder why that is. biggrin.gif

Great post hifimanrookie. It is refreshing to know how Frank works and knowing that each and every cable he makes is nothing less than perfect when it leaves his hands. Even at the expense of the 6+ months wait time it might take for some customers. I myself (along with a lot of other satisfied customers) are more than willing to wait for these amazing cables because I know the quality of the product. I wish more companies would go through the quality control and amount of perfection that Frank does because no matter how long it takes, I would rather have quality over quantity. biggrin.gif

I think toxic cable needs to prioritize their orders and process them in order with the oldest orders processed first. I think that is the only fair.

IEM cable received in 9 weeks... From what I've read on this forum the 18 week waiting periid is for the headphone cables

Hey Frank, any reason why you changed to right angle connectors?

For the IEM cables. Previously, didn't you just use the UE ones and then bend the cables at a 90 degree angle?

The angled ones are only used for the Virus and Widow Fietear cables, all other cables still use the same as previously. The Piccolino, Virus and Widow pictured are Fitear cables.

 

The Poison and Scorpion will soon be available with OM connectors for Fitear.
