Give Frank a break - he sells his cables cheap enough as it is. Black Friday is about in the UK, mainly Amazon.

That is probably because Amazon is an international, U.S. based company. Black Friday is an american thing.

And yes, I agree wholeheartedly that Franks cables are anything but expensive considering the quality of material and craftmanship that goes into them.

Yours is at the workshop and it is done, i will be picking it up this after noon.

 

 

Yes, one of the reasons you never see me offering a sale on my cables, is because my margins are extremely low, especially now with more staff, a dedicated workshop and sponsorship.  I also only buy the best when it comes to my wires/materials, not look for the cheapest.

 

So it's very unlikely you will often see me offering sales on my cables.  Maybe i should start pricing the cables higher :wink:

 

Hopefully, during Christmas, i will offer discounts on some Audio GD gear and headphones as i need to make some space and i have too much of these.

It's just generally tat and poor selling crap that goes on these sales anyway. Clearly not the case and exactly the opposite with Frank's goods.

I can tell you that for Romanian Black Friday you can buy a Burson Conductor with €1200 instead of €1900

That I would qualify as a good thing smily_headphones1.gif

... If I had't have bought it last year full price

Thanks for the info.

Yea gods! Yet more reason to avoid high street 'sales' of any description. rolleyes.gif

Thanks Frank for remembering my cable.  Very much appreciated :happy_face1:.  Looking forward to receiving it.

 

I also bought parts from Audio GD for my DIY project and I noticed they made very impressive headphone amplifiers and DACs. This is the first time I was given to know you have kept some of Audio GD products but where can I find the details ??  It seems they are not listed in your web site :confused_face_2:

I have to agree with the other guys. Sales on non-tat audio products aren't really observed in the UK. But I think this is already outside the topic here, so this is the last I've said on this subject.

I already ordered a Timekeeper with the same discount. And I wasn't surprised. While they do not have it in stock, my order stands and I will receive it/pay for it when it arrives in Romania. It is already ordered and expected to arrive. Yeeey for Black Friday!

On topic - I will need some cables to "tie" the Timekeeper to the preamp outputs of the Conductor. Can someone guess the brand? wink.gif

I received my balanced silver Senn 800 cable  yesterday with balanced adapter, ordered on 8 march but busy testing the amazing Vali now.

As promised here is a quick initial bit of feedback on the Silver Widow I just received...

 

In a word, WOW. I must admit to the possibility of being a bit close-minded? In regards to whether or not a cable can actually make a difference and I [was] just adamant that it could not be so. Well how about a metaphorical slap in the face? I find myself somewhat humbled.

 

With the LCD3 driven by Mjolnir/Gungnir and FLAC from JRiver Media via USB transfer I now have the means to fully escape this world minus the debilitating influence of substance abuse!  ;0)   Really just an understated beautiful work of art it is. I am well and fully blown away.

 

Really astounding increase in resolution and airiness of the soundstage. Micro-precision instrumental placement. Detail rendering and clarity to die for. I can honestly say that if an enthusiast has the LCD3 and the Schiit stack that YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF TO PICK UP ONE OF THESE SILVER WIDOWS! Just do it.

 

Regards

 

Keith
