copper + miracle = smooth treble and lush mids  , yet the Silver Widow's Treble extend even more, not to mention that the Treble will be crisp and sparkly, even more than the silver poison cable!! in case you wanted a better copper cable go with the scorpion.

 btw the amplification play a rule too! don't put miracle + silver cable in a warm amp then say where is my highs? happened with me in Yulong D100 MKII + TH600!! and i used to believe that the amplification change the sound a little but i learned the hard way :P

Got ALO RxmkIII which is not too warm or too bright. The amp does a good job with WW and Miracle with smooth high and midrange in a moderate volume level. I hope SW will do the best job overall. I did listen to SP but did not really like the sound (?)

Wait time is for orders placed now. 

 

I can't see any orders from yourself with me, when did you order.

 

Please speak to the dealer the cable was purchased from, regarding wait times.

Hi guys, I'm using earsonics sm64 with silver poison cable currently. And I wish to upgrade my cable. Given your wide knowledge and expertise, which cable do u all suggest I should go for? I have in mind silver widow and virus cable. However, which one will complement well with my sm64?

Fyi, I like full body sound( "thick"), details, wide soundstage and depth, vocals clarity, airy and good staging, impactful bass..redface.gif

I ordered a Silver Poison for my HD800 in June and I am still waiting, though Frank has told me the cable will be shipped in 'next few days'.

My HD800 cables took about 6 months..They were worth the wait.

Not an exact science, is it?  So is the big issue ordering the material after a cable has been ordered and paid?  Don't get me wrong, I have a Toxic Cable and I love it and appreciate the quality.  Just curious, because I feel it would be helpful if cable websites could be updated with order and completion lead times on their home page that were at least reasonably accurate.  Apparently, that is very difficult to do, and I'm guessing it's because they can't keep a huge, expensive inventory of material on hand and there's lead time with their vendors.  Again, just curious how it works.

dear fellow toxicanian..i dont understand how u come to such a conclusion..but i can assure u (u can read it in this thread) the reason for the long leading times (for now..soon they will be normal again) are not about money/stock issues in frank's case as frank posted some pics here a while ago showing he has a surplus of parts to make thousands of cables and that the reasons for the wait, is as he told us...unexpected occasions (family issues etc).

 

He also said many times (and i experience it myself being a procurement specialist sometimes in need of custommade products from a niche market) that on top of that its also hard to estimate how long hundreds (most custommade) cables take to make, while making sure quality is high...and we all know his high quality is on same high level for cables as bentley is for cars! and thats a cold hard fact...RIGHT GUYS?

the idea of having the leadtimes on ur site is almost undoable..first u need a person doing that full time..second u have something we call privacy law..u cant just put names on a site because of info..

so although its a good idee...in real life its almost impossible..and thats why almost no one does it...as far i know in my professional experience only companies who make ready made/standard products who sometimes do that/but only with ur own inlogcodes.

 

hope i answered ur question now..but as i said..i dont know whether other cable makers have parts problems...some copanies dont have the investment money to do that...as far i can see...frank does!

 

here are the pics i found showing his stock of parts to make cables he posted a while back.. ..enjoy the pics dudes

I ordered a tube headphone amp kit  last year from a renowned kit manufacturer based in Washington State, US. In their website, they show the delivery status of each product. It reads something like 'orders through mm/dd shipped'. They have 26 products on offer, and I believe the list is being updated once a week, sometimes more often. It would be great if Frank can show us something similar. I think we all appreciate all the great products from Frank, but in my opinion, customer care is something just as important. Anyway....this is only a thought.

I am still waiting for my early march order and have been through multiple delivery dates in that time. I doubt I would order anything else from them unless they start giving a reasonable stab at delivery dates in the future. Bottleheads approach was very good in comparison and pragmatic / simple to do, it is all it needs. They don't carry any stock and they achive this so it is not a biggie at all.
