Please you must share the listening experience for this, I always curious what it will sound like if an AKG goes with the Toxic Cables.

I know from own experience that the BW 22AWG punches way above his price point with all the plusses of a good copper cable and without the negatives of a regular copper cable and for some headphones it could be the better choice over the SW.

And also very important, its much more affordable biggrin.gif

Heheh! I think Frank is flat out because I haven't heard from him this week or last. Must be another crazy period. Nah... it's not you. :tongue_smile:

Hey Chubbyroaster!

 

From initial impressions, it doesn't take away the organic bass of the 812 that silver or silver hybrid cables seem to do. And the sparkly sound of the BW enhances the treble. Most importantly, it seems to enrich the mids so that there is more texture and layering in the sound. Hope that helps. :atsmile:

Frank is becoming a celebrity......probably needs to hire public relations pretty soon.  :D

 

Relax guys, the guy's seriously busy....he answers me (not that I'm any kind of benchmark mind you) like after 1-2 weeks (sometimes longer recently).   He is very busy trying to keep up with the growth of his business......no wonder it's booming the way it is with the quality of his cables vs price.

Funny..thats exactly what my dual mono 8wire 22AWG BW also does to my Code-X. It balances the sound perfectly out..

i am really curious how much better the copper venom will be that frank is cooking up for me at this moment, as to my ears (in my rig with really higher end stuff) its as if the BW is made for my rig.

BUT i have to admit i have a very special BW, Frank did some magic tricks on this cable, as music sounds like real music, cant say it otherwise! wink.gif

About public relations...he already has that mateys!!!! US, his loyal crazy ass LUCKY and HAPPY customers. And we all do it willingly... RIGHT GUYS? beerchug.gif

And about waiting for reply..oh well...we know the drill..and we all know the reasons why he is MIA for a week sometimes... His Develish long backlog to work through. redface.gif

I dont understand why people keep on mentioning that he has to wait...no pun intended ofcourse... I know it can be nerve wrecking paying for something or asking a question and then don't hear nothing for a week or so. ..but if u read the posts..even the eeny weeny negative ones..they all get solved or the cable gets delivered...i cant remember any case not being solved by frank..and that says a lot how he does his business..but we the regulars know that for a while now wink.gif

And for the newbies..no worries..we were all in ur shoes once..and we are still here..happier then ever with our cables in our 'high' or 'low' end systems.

And totally oftopic..as u guys can see, I FOUND OUT how to insert several quotes into one post..halleluah, at last!! Yep yep..sometimes i find out things biggrin.gif

Frank......congrats on another snake......man those guys are so exotic looking.  We all have our $$ pits.  :p

 

Thanks, sensui123! Yeah, the Venom will be heavy stuff, literally. :tongue_smile: But the things I would do in the pursuit of knowledge and, in this case, aural nirvana. :atsmile:

Hifimanrookie,

 

I have been pondering this for a while: do you think the dual mono 8wire 22AWG BW would do good things for my LCDs and balanced ready Beyer T1? Very tempted by the idea.... :atsmile:

Well...as u maybe know i went from a 4wire single ended BW 22AWG to the cable i have now and my rig sounded different (on the he500 and the modded 337 which i had), more open and with better soundstage..and those LOWS..as if the sound was turbo charged in a good way.. But it was not hit and go..it was like a wave of lows...never to aggressive..in control...even better then the 4wire 22awg version.
The music sounded louder also...but best of all was the separation of the instruments and placement, the treble and midrange stayed sort of the same, only midrange got a bit more balanced with a bit more body to it...
But the treble and midrange with the regular BW was already excellent also wink.gif
It was worth the investment..(i understand i am the only one with the beautiful real carbon Hifiman connectors)

i think the dual cables configuration is the reason for these last improvements, u get less smearing of the signal between the channels and the 8wires helps to transfer the signal faster and better through the cable, all to my ears ofcourse...u just have to try it out urself tongue.gif

Ur welcome kiats!
Lolz..'Hifimanrookie Special' (Frank? Maybe an idea? Hehehe). That sounds cool!!..i have to remember that.. beerchug.gif

well he did tell me i was his guinea pig with my BW as it was first one in this BW configuration he ever made, with so many wires and in 22AWG i understood (for a hifiman)
but u know what..i am a very happy guinea pig!!! i hope he will do the same with my venom he will be cooking for me...i already told him to let his fantasy loose and just go crazy on the cable and also gave him some ideas of my own to try out..and he said he will try if its possible hehehehe, just as i did with my BW and looksie how it turned out tongue.gif

So now i am waiting what is coming to me, i only hope i wont get a real python in the post as my new cable eek.gif

Just mention me (Paulo) in ur enquiry and he will know what cable u mean wink.gif

What is the best way to contact you Frank? I tried the website Contact Us and the gmail and didn't get a reply. This was over a month ago. 

 

Should I post here? PM? Try email again? Cheers.
