For LCD2 I would really recommend the Silver Widow, to give the clarity a slight boost.
The difference between the stock and the SW cable is pretty significant.

Great, now I feel like jerk for trying to place an order and potentially depriving Frank of his holiday.

You can't go wrong with either. You will get increased clarity in the mids, while not losing the organic sig that you love in the LCD 2.:L3000:

All i am asking is, anyone who is currently waiting for an order, please be paitent a little longer, all orders will go out this month without fail.

 

If you don't get reply to messages, it's not me ignoring anyone, it's me working non stop to make sure all my orders are clear, so i can go on holiday for the first time in 3 years.

 

Non standard orrders can still be taken, but might mean then being made after i get back.

 

No worries, Frank! I hope you have a good holiday! God knows you deserve a break! :beerchug:

All IEM cables are ready and being packed, excludes Venom. Headphone cables all ready, just the plugs on the amp end left to go on, so will start shipping next week.

Widow IEM cables coming with OM connectors soon, and a new cheaper silver litz IEM cables being made available.

My order number is 809. I ordered in February. I asked Frank not to send me the cables in June because I would be in Europe. I Emailed and PM ed Frank on June 21 and have not had a reply. Is he dead or incarcerated?

Read back a page or two. All will be explained.

I have both the Silver Poison and the Silver Widow.

You can use the 8-wire or 4-wire Silver Poison to save some money. They work great with the LCD2, improving transient, tightening the bass and expanding the soundstage, and most important of all, lifting that dark caramel coating.

For the ultimate cable (e.g. with the LCD3), try the 8-wire Silver Widow with silver-pin XLR.

The improvement of the Silver Poison over the stock cable is significant (say from 90 to 95%). There is a smaller difference in going from the Silver Poison to the 8-wire Silver Widow with silver-pin XLR (say from 95 to 97%) for nearly twice the price but that is normal. You have passed the point of diminishing return long ago when you bought the LCD2 so a small improvement in cable or amp will typically double or triple the price each time.

For example, you could be very happy pairing the LCD2 with the Vioelectric 200 or the Schiit Mjolnir amp (for about $1,000) but to get noticeable improvement in the sound, you may need the Bakoon HA-21 ($2,900) or the HeadAmp GS-X Mk2 ($3,000). For a killer bass you may have to go to the Woo WA5 with upgrade parts and tubes (around $4,500). It is the same with cables but the reverse is not always true. Price alone does not guaranty quality or improvement because it is a matter of matching your cans to the cable and amp.

Do your research carefully.

That is the reason why I think Frank's cables are the best "bargains" in this business. And I use the word carefully.

He is held prisoner until he finishes all the orders that we placed.

With good behavior, he will be released after three years of incarceration on parole (some call it vacation) in July.

But he will be back: he is a recidivist.

+1 :L3000:

 

I have not tried a lot of cables apart from Cardas and Oyaide made.  BUT I found Frank's cables are the best and the most value for the money and not to mention workmanship which IMHO is second to none.

 

That is why I have my 18AWG Scorpion and a BW for my 2 HD800s;

A BW for my HE500 and a SW for my LCD-X.

 

I am totally satisfied with all these cables from Frank.
