Something i am just playing around with and wanted to try. Feel like a jewellery manufacturer now :redface:

 

Just another option for those who dig bling.

 

This one has a 3.5mm Furutech rhodium jack on it.

 

 

 

 

Macro shot of the wire strands just back from the plating company and off to the polisher in the morning and then to my cable manufacturer,

 

 

Been extremely busy last few weeks lads, will be going through emails and PM's tomorrow.

How is the sound? Better?

Remember I had won the 6000th post contest? Frank had offered me my favorite cable BW any way I wanted it. I opted for AKG K812: most of the other cable makers use only 3 wire configuration because the new lemo connector that the 812 uses is smaller than the mini-XLR which the 702 uses. Frank managed to do a 4 wire 22 AWG BW for my AKG K812! So excited! Frank just sent me the photos. Waiting to arrange for its arrival in Singapore! smily_headphones1.gif

Yes, Frank is able to meet all kinds of requests.  He always surprises us by doing everything that seems practically impossible on cables for his customers :blink:  Well done Frank :beerchug:

How about a full real carbon fibre (sleeved) cable? U reckon he could do that? Probably... wink.gif
But damn..That would look stunning with carbon fiber xlr connectors. biggrin.gif

I want Kevlar...So you can say that Your sound is bullet proof with Toxic Cables...:D

post #6205 of 9356

Yep, kevlar is really nice. I think however that is very microphonic.

Carbon Fiber on the other side will not be flexible at all :)

Hmm, it looks flexible but I don't think it's flexible enough (it appears to take a little bit of force). This makes me however think at some carbon fiber cables. And some carbon fiber amp. And some carbon fiber headphones. And some... :D

I have both kevlar and carbon fibre sleeving, both made for the sleeving of cables and very flexible, the kevlar is a yellow color, so does not look very nice and the carbon frays easily so would need to me covered with a clear sleeving.

The middle two are not carbon fibre, the top one is a solid tube and the last one has heatshrink over it, not ideal.
