Beautiful additions to the family.

post #602 of 7484

Hello guys and fellow Toxic Cable-aficionados!

 

Although I have been a long time lurker, I am now a head-fi member and would like to salute you all with my first post.

Frank has kindly asked me to post my impressions of his SPC cable here on head-fi. Here's what I have sent him today:

 

"I would like to tell you that your SPC cable is simply great. Much lighter than the stock cable (a BIG plus for me!) and it takes away the sharp edge of the treble without reducing detail or sound quality in general. I actually hear MORE detail and experience LESS fatigue when listening with the He-400! Now I can enjoy 2, 3 albums in a row - which is simply impossible with the stock Canare cable."

 

As Forrest Gump would put it: ...and that's all I have to say 'bout that.

 

Oh, I forgot - my rig:

 

Sony SCD XB790 QS (I will soon get a nice DAC, can't wait) -> Matrix M-Stage / KHV88 by HB AmpDesign -> Toxic Cables SPC -> Hifiman He-400 with velour pads

Thanks for sharing, there have not been many impressions on the SPC cable, so i thought i would ask you to share.

 

I do stock several nice DAC's from Audio GD, if any of those might interest you.

 

Really glad that you like the cable.

Welcome to head-fi!! Could you post a few pics of your setup with the cable?

These prices are for a limited quantity only and will not last long, sorry about the picture quality, i just took them before it went dark here.

 

This say this is by far the best looking headphone cable ever made and it certainly does sound the part.

 

Piccolino by Crystal Cable. (Authorised dealers)

 

Piccolino Headphone Cables.

 

HD6XX, Audez'e, HiFiMAN, 6ft £450 - 8ft £530.

HD800, 6ft £480 - 8ft £550.

 

Come as standard with 1/4" Oyaide jacks.

 

Piccolino IEM Cables

 

All IEM and CIEM Cables, 48" £365.

 

Come as standard with gold plated Oyaide jacks.

 

Piccolino LOD and Mini to Mini, from only £90.

 

Black Widow

 

The Black Widow, is our new OCC Copper, Cyro treated , Cotton covered Litz (type 2 configuration) cable. using 420 individually insulated OCC Copper strands.

 

HD6XX, Audez'e, 6ft £100 - 8ft £115

HD800, 6ft £120 - 8ft £135

 

 

Anthrax

 

Anthrax, is what you could call, the baby sister to the Siver Poison.

 

Anthrax, is a stranded 26AWG 7N OCC Cryo treated Silver cable, same as the Silver Poison, but without the added Gold.

 

The wire looks and feels the same as the Silver Poison, but if you look closely, you will notice the strands have a tighter twist to them.

 

I have not had a chance to make the cables yet, but they will look similar to the Silver Poison, so please refer to those pictures.

 

HD6XX, Audez'e, HiFiMAN, 6ft £120 - 8ft £140

HD800, 6ft £135 - 8ft £155

 

All IEM and CIEM cable, 48" £120

 

 

All the above are promotional pricing for a limited quantity, which will not last long.,

 

Please, do not take my low prices, to be an indication to the performance of my cables. All my cables are of the highest quality, made only using the best parts, parts i use on my own personal cables.

Cables should never be judged on price, but the materials they are made with, and the attention to detail you can see in the build. I am sure i can price my cable much higher and they will still sell.

My aim with Toxic Cables was to provide the best quality Audiophile cables at extremely reasonable prices, prices i would be happy paying myself, knowing the cost and build time that goes in to each cable, and this approach has worked well.

Wow. Great deals on those Frank. All I need are the headphones to start me off....

 

I still think your Silver Poison wire is going to be damn hard to beat on SQ / price, even by cables 3 - 4 times the cost.

 

Just making myself up another DIY Poison IEM cable :D - Westone connectors this time.

biggrin.gif... Well, I can assure you that I don't regret it! People usually spend a LOT more money on audio stuff to get the same kind of improvement I got by buying a new cable (things like "well, this 5.000$ pre-amp has a BIT more energy and sound SEEMS to be more refinded - and doesn't that gold front look AMAZING? ). No really, the SPC cable is that good and has great price/performance-ratio beyersmile.png.

Take a look at this http://www.head-fi.org/products/hifiman-he-400/reviews/6872 review of the He-400 by project86, the first two pictures show the headphones + Toxic Cable SPC.

Later on there are also pictures of the cable itself without the phones.
