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

Why is the wait worth it?...This is why....

Thank you Frank, Just received my Silver Widows IC from Toxic cable for my RWAK120-B TRRS to RS-71B Balance. I understood that the Right angle TRRS only available with plastic but Frank are reluctant to make his cable with plastic quality thus he mod one for me, i don't know how but he did it. My RWAK120-B will ship out today thus no full config picture, the cable length is 131mm, the length was set by me , would like it be slightly shorter maybe by 10mmm, gotta measure a accurate length when my RWAK120-B reach me next few day. Maybe order another one with Picolino :P.  Can't wait to get my Roxanne cable to balance, hope you can get the connector as soon as possible.

I have been told by Frank when I ordered my IEM SW. My cable will be delivered around the 2nd week of February 2014.

Yes the wait time calls for some patience.... But once the SW arrives everything will be completely forgotten.

You wont be able to wipe those stupid grins off ya faces.......

I got my Silver Poison cables for my HE-500s and I'm breaking it in now. Also received the virus mini-to-mini 1/8th interconnect too (gold plated). Looks like Christmas came early!

 

Will be posting pics and discussing later.

Eagerly awaiting my SW, which should be sent out this week. Hoping it impresses enough that I will get one for my IEMs.

Can anyone advise what headphone cables made by Toxic would be the equivalent of Moon Audio's Silver Dragon V3?  I just got a pair of Shure SRH1540, and would like a 4' - 5' silver cable using the Shure MMCX connectors (singel-ended termination, 3.5mm).  Unfortunately, Drew advises the specs I want won't be available until February at the earliest, so I'm looking for an alternative & thought of Toxic Cables.

After about 6 months waiting my Black Widow (BW) has eventually arrived :ksc75smile::atsmile: .  Thank you Frank.

 

I have posted a few photos of this new BW for readers reference.  You may have noticed that Frank has used black heatshrinks on the jack and the connectors.  I think mine is the first batch of BW having its new look.  TBH I like this new look very much as the black heatshrink matches very nicely with the cable's name :wink_face:

 

In one of the photos I have also shown my Silver Widow (SW) that I am presently using for my HD800.  As I have bought a pair of LCD3 I will send this SW back to Frank for re-termination later. 

 

The workmanship of the BW is second to none and Frank has consistently maintained his product quality.  I have been using my SW for a year and there is no tear and wear at all and still looks like new.

 

As to the sound quality I have not yet compared it with my SW and Scorpion but I will post my review after 100 hrs of burning in.

 

My last comment to those who are still waiting for their cables, please don't complaint and please wait patiently as Frank will not let you down. I can only say the waiting is worthwhile when you have received your cables.  Thank you again Frank for the wonderful work.
