Channel separation is likely due to going balanced ;) he wants a full sound with powerful lows and beautiful mids, and that's why I recommend 8 wires. But yes, 4 would also do the job very well.

I guess it's 4 per channel. 8 wires of 22awg would be very thick and hardly fit into the connector, and be clearly more expensive.

To be honest i dont know..both cables for both channels are pretty heavy..and frank told me he never made such a thick cable before...i was first one... Its really thick..they almost dont fit in the hifiman connectors! So i dont know..what i do know is that i cant imagine any cable sounding better with a hifiman phone..as i already have the most livelike sound to my ears..and some others who listened to my rig.. And its affordable..okay i mean the 4wire single ended one cable version..mine is a bit less affordable..but still..compared to a SW 4wire version..a good deal biggrin.gif
But i have to be honest..i dont care how many wires is inside my cable..,for me the bliss it gives me when listening is what matters.. tongue.gif

Black Friday is an American concept and Frank is British. Regardless of the international nature of his customer base, surely you don't expect him to observe every nations post holiday retail idiosyncrasies?!? wink.gif

We have Black Friday even in Romania and I'm sure you have it in UK so his question still stands :)

Some more cables.

 

All cables are now ready, little more then half still need bagging, including all the Widow, Virus and new Poison, so i will pick them up from the workshop today and test and bag them. Over the weekend i will pack all the orders and they will ship Monday. I just have a few 10ft cable orders that i still need to put the jack plugs on.

 

Adapters will be made over Monday/Tuesday, so those with adapters in their order, will have those shipped Wednesday.

 

Here are the cables i have bagged so far.  The first picture shows some of the cables that shipped last week and posted this picture earlier in the week. No cables pictured twice.

if going for the BW, the 4 wire is fine. 8 wire of the 22AWG might be overkill and will cost considerably more.

 

The BW is also awailable in 26AWG with clear PE insulation and 24AWG with cotton sleeving and also in my custom French Silk sleeve.

 

Unfortunately, i do not participate in Black Friday. Other then at Apple stores, i have never heard of BF in the UK.

Godness, it take your another day just to put them to pack them for shipment.:eek:

It seems my BW is not in the photos :confused_face:.  I ordered a 6ft BW for HD800 with Oyaide plug but most of the cables shown are not fitted with Oyaide plugs.  Hope my cable is there and I have just overlooked it :(

As Frank said, a few American owned UK retailers offer Black Friday discounts, but generally this phenomena is not observed here.  :atsmile:
