I was wondering does the silver poison turn green over time?

As far as I know copper turns green not silver, and there is no copper in the SP

I don't have experience on SP but parts of my 18AWG Scorpion wires turned green due to oxidation.  Having said apart from the appearance it does not affect the SQ at all.

thats what i assume since copper only oxidize on the surface where it contacts the the air / moisture .

it doesn't oxidize at the core of the wire.

silver does oxidize and from what i know it starts to dull yellow a little bit. but since there is 1 % of gold i don't know if that will help the corrosion resistance i assume a little bit but not a lot.

I read a lot of positive feedback regarding toxic cables and decided to inquire and order a specific cable for my lcd xc.

I emailed toxic cables on two occasions and have yet to receive a reply. I understand that Frank and his team are rather busy, but does someone know of another method to reach them? They also do not list a phone number.

Thank you in advance for the help smily_headphones1.gif

Silver goes black but no it very quickly, I've had some silver interconnects for a while and no discolouration. Copper and SPC however turn green. And fairly quickly compared to pure silver (with iems as they are in contact with the body)

so what the color if the color changed, if the SQ is fine then so we are :3

Silver will not turn green, only copper and silver plated copper can go green after some time, it happens quicker in more humid countries or when in constant contact with sweat, but it will not effect how the cable sounds in the slightest. To avoid this happening, one ca go for the Widow range of cable, be it the Copper Widow or White Widow and this should not happen with these cable.
 
Silver does go a light or dark grey after some time, but i have found this to happen after a very long time with a well insulated cable like the Poison, so i would not worry too much with silver cables. I have had a few silver cables from when Toxic first started, returned for retermination and you could hardly notice with most and the worst was a grey tinge to them.
 
Below is a picture of a tub of scrap silver wire i have, nearly all of these are bare with no insulation that i have been putting in here since i started Toxic, and even without insulation, you can see it's not too bad.
 
Take silver Jewellery for example, this is worn on person with no insulation and in contact with your body/sweat and moisture 24/7 and even these do not tarnish very quick, so you can imagine how long it can take insulated wire.  Again, we have the Silver Widow that will not tarnish.

Sorry lads, 

 

We have been extremely busy the last few weeks getting these IEM cables ready, we are also working on Venom orders now, so things have been hectic.

 

If you have a message that needs replying to ASAP, please send me a PM and i will go through them this evening.

 

There were a couple of days i did not get much done as i had to go to the airport and get a few new members of the Toxic family through customs, pictures of the new additions below, don't they look sooo cute and cuddly :biggrin: one of them nearly bit me on the nose yesterday lol

 

One of these days, one might slip in to one of your packages, when you put your hand in the envelope and then try plugging it in to your headphones, will feel like a thick cable :biggrin:

Am also thinking in getting a complement 2 and then comparing him to my BW 8wire, As DHC contacted recently me and offered me one for a very special low price if i would compare it to my very special 8wire BW and post that comparision online wink.gif am thinking about it.

Thank you for the response. I have PM'ed Frank here.  I understand that he is a man who never sleeps :p

In all honestly, I am very new to HeadFi and headphones in general.  I mainly do a lot of reading but have not had the luxury to really test out options.

 

I currently have the LCD XC and using the Centrance HiFi M8.

 

I seem to prefer slightly brighter sounds, so I am thinking of going silver and that 1% gold the Frank injects notes that it provides a great balance.  Then again, I do not think I have broken in my LCD XC's.

 

I will post my frequency chart if I could, but my account does not have permission to do so.

 

If I may, I will like to kindly ask for suggestions in which type of Toxic Cable I should go for that is under £400.
