"Suicide Cables (formerly known as Toxic Cables, until stuff became SERIOUSLY toxic) - now YOU can slowly die while listening to high quality music!"

Frank, with something like this you could make ****loads of money by selling your cables to some hipsters who are both tired of life and rich.

Suicide cables. biggrin.gif  You guys are crazy.

 

What will it be next, especially made cables, for people to hang themselves, in style with.

Okay so my impressions on the HD800 copper(ground)/silver(signal) cable and Toxic company (Frank):

The communication with Frank was swift and informative, no wonder he is overloaded with orders, people appreciate these two things. Intravenous feeding comes to mind...

I will not go into detail with sound, the last time I posted my impressions on opamps in Auditor's power regulation section how it changed the sound....yeah I won't go into that but I will say this; I think the sound is not as bright as it was before even though both the stock and Toxic cables are SPC.

I asked Frank for some slightly custom stuff like longer cables between headphone connectors and the y-split and he made it perfect. I also wanted shorter heatshrink under connectors and was surprised by how he finished connectors, very impressive although I think even if there was zero heatsrhink there wouldn't be a strain relief issue anywhere. I'm just not a fan of heatshrink.

The cable aesthetically is beautiful but that's not why I bought it, I bought it for ergonomic reasons and there is scores a 10. There must be a gazillion of tiny strands, its that flexible. I hope it lasts long before copper starts oxidizing and SPC eventually as well. Since I won't be disconnecting cables much I am not worrying air would come in and do damage any time soon.

I will eventually order a HE-500 cable from Frank as well but a new phone comes first as my contract expired and I am still comparing silver to copper before I make a final decision.

Here are two photos I took really quick with an ipad:



Edit: I forgot to add that Frank was kind enough to add 3 rubber thingies that hold your ipod/amp/dac/shampoo together. That's exactly what I needed when I needed as I went to Tuscany 2 days later with my stack.

yeah it is. HD800 fit pretty well on it though the Woo stand is still better.
post #658 of 9346

They are a perfect fit for the HD800, i have never tried the Woo stand. I have the Klutz Designs CanCans, which i use for my LCD-3 and 2.
