You cannot do SE to Balanced. It will not work and, if I'm not work, might short your amp. Only the other way round.

Yep...I noticed that Currawong built his own cable for that. He showed it in his Youtube review of the AK240.

Absolutely, if that's what you would like.

 

I am still in two minds about getting the AK240, i got myself a DX100 nearly a year ago and to date have never used it, same with the 602.

 

It looks awesome, but can't bring myself to buy something that i will likely never use.

 

Oh, bought myself another snake, waiting to take delivery. This is a baby pic, it's much bigger now,

Copper Venom RC-8 would be £550.

 

It's really time consuming to make and had the sleeve specifically custom made to fit this wire.

eek.gif ru trying to bankrupt this poor dutch dude? biggrin.gif
Be careful..or else i will sent u a hedgehog (dear friend of mine..lolz) through the post..and let him have a looksie at ur 23 babies very_evil_smiley.gif
Dont worry..the 1,5 babies u mentioned last will be left alone...i promise wink.gif
Seriously....if u do manage to do that for my hifiman..then u will do something supposedly impossible..as no one..and i mean NO ONE has managed that before for a hifiman headphone because of those little shiiit connectors (ru making new connectors?)...EVER!
But i have big faith in u...OMG..only knowing i again will have a 'frank's special' (or was it a 'Hifimanrookie Special' lolz?) no one has, makes me proud to be ur loyal customer..and remembers me why i went into the toxic boat two years ago.
.i will stun (soundwise/lookswise/qualitywise) everyone with that cable on my rig!!! And in a few months a new meet will take place..u can bet ur butt on it i will attend biggrin.gif

But as u said..try it out..i love to be ur guinea pig cablewise ( my other cable came out perfectly, it already has a nickname..lolz)..u know that...and i know that if u cant do it..NO ONE can wink.gif so even if it will be a RC-4... I will be more then happy also tongue.gif

Yes please. I think it will look very good with the new True BW. smily_headphones1.gif

Hmmm.. Frank, I have a few excellent DAPs and I can say that the AK240 does get fair amount of time with me. Besides, it sounds so sweet with the BW! smily_headphones1.gif

That is the most amazing snake I've ever seen and I don't even like snakes.  That doesn't even look real!
