This will be my new Silver Poison USB cable in 1m.

 

I have chosen the winner of this prize myself, rather then randomly and it will be going to my most prolific (spent the most with me) and one of the most patient customers of many from 2013.

 

The winner is Sensui123.

 

 

Thanks mate.

 

Talk about a pleasant surprise.  Thanks Frank!  Told you guys good things come to those that wait.  ;)

 

But seriously, thanks so much for the bonus....it's been nothing but a pleasure every time we communicate and I'm always in awe whenever I listen to my equipment with Frank's cables.  Truly top class stuff.  The Copper Venom for the HD800 and Silver Widow cabling has been especially awesome....but silver poison is nothing to sneeze @ either, enjoying everything thoroughly.  As I mentioned above, give Frank a pm if you're interested in quality interconnects....just beautiful work and sounds exquisite.

A 16 wire Venom with tip to tip solid silver contacts (Reference Series), other then the 1/4" jack. Rubys and Sapphires showing left and right plugs (i had not put them on the adapters yet at the time of pictures, just the cable).

 

It was extremely difficult making this cable with 16 wires while still trying to keep it compacts and it took a lot of trial and error to perfect it with the end result being a cable nearly the same size as the 8 wire version.

 

It all started with a customer ordering the normal Venom, later asking if the wires could be doubled. Without thinking i agreed to try, only to later realize that there was no way i would be able to make the wires fit with the current insulation and was starting to regret taking the order.

I contacted my wire supplier and we had a new batch of Venom wire made just for this cable, one that did not have the thick insulation the 8 wire Venom uses.

 

Even with the new wire, it took weeks, carefully twisting each wire around each other, while still retaining good flexibility, this is not something i really want to do again :(

 

The 16 wire Venom turned in to a 16 month wait, with all the R&D, trial and error and wire sourcing that went in to it, but what we ended up with, is a cable like no other, it sounds phenomenal. Glad i had a customer who was willing to wait as long as it took.

 

This was a custom order and i am still in two minds about offering these for sale due to how long they take to build. If i did ever decide to offer them for sale, i would limit sales to 1 or maybe 2 cables per year.

 

What do you guys think :biggrin: 

 

  

 

  

 

Unfortunately the actual cable was already built, by the time i received the new aluminium Y splitters that i had made for the Venom cables.

Frank, those are absolutely beautiful but how heavy and flexible would they be.  I love my naked  8ft Silver Widows which are very flexible and light.  What would an 8 ft headphone cable run in the above configuration?  Mark.
