Just a short note on the virus for LCD that Frank sent across: for those of you who missed the organic bass which was obscured when Audeze increased treble in the LCD 3, I have good news - the virus will bring back the organic bass while preserving the transparency and treble extension. smily_headphones1.gif wonderful!

Can't wait to try it!

received my IEM cable and it was done very nicely. I do have one question, it is not marked for positive or negative. The way the cable was bent the L and R are facing inward when installed.

I am curious as to how the virus compares to the SW.  Are the mids and highs as silky smooth?

All my cables will have markings, please look at the actual connector and depending on the cable you have, the right will be red and the left Black/Blue, or it will have the letters L and R on the connectors.

Yes, they are, setamp. The mids will be slightly warmer and fuller. The thing about the Virus is that you have the best of both worlds - the BW and the SW, maintaining a balance between the two while sounding very coherent. Not something you can always say about hybrid cables.

the connectors read L and R but nothing showing positive or negative so I am not out of phase. Or I am just not seeing the marking?

The wire would be molded to show which way up it should be to go around your ears.

 

Which cable do you have and for what IEM.

 

Just re read your original post. If you have the Westone connectors with the metal housing, then the L and R should face inwards, just how the wire has been molded for them to do so.

I just got my SP and man, I'm lovin it already. I thought it wouldn't be a huge upgrade over the Blue Dragon but man, was I wrong. It sounds much clearer and has a brighter sound sig. The bass is awesome with slightly less impact, but much better detail.

It was for the Hifiman, not HD600 :biggrin: 

 

I am sure you will like it with the HD600 as it pairs very well with the HD650, if you don't, we can work something out.
