Hi folks, I apologize if this has been asked before, but if I would like to order some cables from Frank, would it be easier to email or PM him? Sorry guys, first timer here....so trying to get some sense of how things work here....
Frank has a problem.....unfortunately I can relate to this in my hobbies......it's like an itch you can't quite fully scratch hah. Congrats on another exotic specimen.....my vice right now is actually not in head fi but consuming me all the same.. =\ I will be back!
Haha. I wish I could relate. :)
However, my order is more complicated and involves a fair bit of labour.
I think you are not being realistic in expecting a 25% "upgrade" (what is that anyway, can't be measured when it comes to SQ and everyone's hearing is different) from a cable. To tame the HD800, you need to carefully pair the amp/DAC to the headphone and then fine tune with cables afterwards.
That said, the copper venom I can say has made the most difference out of all the cables I purchased. It is a definite improvement and matches very well with the HD800 maintaining the clarity/resolution and helping with the fatigue. To me, if there is 1 cable to buy for the HD800, it has to be the copper venom from Frank.
