Hi toxic's crowd.

 

I would like to ask some questions.

How can I differentiate the silver widow from silver poison by looking?

At Frank's website has only silver poison's picture.

 

Thanks for your advice.

Silver Widow is litz so toy will be able to tell the difference. Search up some pics of both cables and you will be able to tell the difference instantly.

The 1st picture is 8 wires silver poison.

The 2nd picture is Virus which is litz.

The last picture is Silver Widow which is also litz.

 

I see all of them have the same multiple small wires in spiral configuration. 

I can't see the difference instantly between silver widow and silver poison.

Please give me some more clue how to diffentiate litz wires from the common wires.  Thanks

If you are unable to see the difference just look at the marking on the heat shrink :wink_face:

SW has more percentage of gold than SP...........But you won't see this in the pics.

The wires of SW is thinner having a slightly bigger gauge than Poison.

I have uploaded a few SW cable photos for sharing, you can see the A+ workmanship from Toxics.  I have also modified the LCD-X's Travel Box so that I don't need to unplug the cable every time I put the headphones inside this box for storage :biggrin::wink:

 

I will provide my impression of SW's audio performance with that of the stock cable when I have completed the comparison.

That second picture was a prototype and does not look nice at all, the final Virus looks awesome. I don't concern myself with the look of the prototypes, as this is where i want to hear what the cables sound like with different configurations.

 

If you look at the litz wire and compare it to the Poison, you will notice the Poison has all the wires twisted together, while the litz wires have bundles of twisted wires, with these bundles then being twisted around each other.

 

Actual production Virus. As you can see, looks much better then the prototype,

 

Talking of R&D wires, i have some old OCC copper wires that i had made for testing, when i was designing some of my other wires. 

 

For anyone wanting to build their own cables, i can do these wires for £0.50 per feet, compared to the usual £1.20 that i charge for my Scorpion wire. That's

60% cheaper. All OCC and Cryo treated.

Here is the answer :wink_face:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_wire_gauge

 

The smaller the AWG the bigger the wire diameter.
