Heheh! So, you have a better cable than you originally thought. But the BW is special, isn't it? smily_headphones1.gif

Mine is 22AWG and has one off HE connectors in carbon....i understand i am only one having those... I think if u wanna have same cable u pay around 350gpb..but it could be more! Honestly i cant remember anymore how much exactly i paid for it... But if u are interested..ask frank how much my cable will cost..its worth every penny i paid for it!!
... Mention me as ur reference.. I am maybe getting myself a copper venom RC-4 soon wink.gif

Here some picsies of my cable.. cool.gif






And now connected to my new amp biggrin.gif

Sent Frank an email a couple of days ago.  I am hoping to get him to make me a custom Viper for HD 25 Aluminum, wired like stock. Saw a pic of HD25 Frank did in this thread. Stock cable is steel. That can't be good.

Hi guys, anyone from Singapore who's looking for SW, Virus or Scorpion for Westone pins may PM me.

I have 4 cables remaining from Frank, no waiting needed.

 Wow! That is a cool looking set up you have there! Is that a HE-6? Now I know who to reach out to if I ever feel like pulling the trigger on a HE-6... The thing that always scares me off is the amp requirements of the beast. :cool:

It's an X-Code or whatever. Modded HE-5.

Wow that came out badly... Its not just a modded he5.. Its almost totally rebuilt by the builder..

And Yep.. A referencesounds code-x he-5. Its a full woody... Its number 15...and i am only one in the world having a 'black edition' of the only 20 originals made woodies LFF made from NOS he5's he Had in stock!..mine has a special black dye and finished with (oldfashion way) beeswax instead of regular wood oil..its mattblack..not glossy! Its like it was Made hundreds of years ago..

and to my ears..and this is personal ofcourse...it has all the plusses of a he6 and more...Yes..i admit..that surprises me also as i WAS going to buy a HE6, As My new amp is specifically handbuilt to drive a he6 in best way possible...thats why the power supply seen on the lower level of the rack is HUGE for a headphone amp..lolz... But one day the code-x crossed my road..and i never looked back... wink.gif

BTW There will be a benelux (netherlands/belgium/germany) meeting again soon before june (last was in 2012)..and i for sure will attend with my amp and phone..so if anyone want to listen to it..u know where to find me tongue.gif

Yeah, it came out a little harsh, sorry. I wished I could try one at a meet or something. 

post #6073 of 7193
thanks okay..
and if i am not mistaken most of the 20 code-x'ses were sold to US based headfi'ers..so i am guessing if ur in the US u have a better chance then europeans in getting ur chance listening to one.
