Yes, it's a public forum. Last time I was in a mall, I went to a public toilet. I noticed there was a men's restroom and there was a women's restroom. I had to choose the appropriate one wink.gif

. I knew what i was gettin into and just got my second cable in..couldnt be more happier..his cables are really worth the months waiting..but most of us know that..and i heard another popular quality brand..norse audio..is having long waiting times also...thats the price u pay if lots of people want ur excellent product..u cant just hire extra manpower to cope with that...u need qualified people and those are hard to find.

+1....It'll get here when it gets here. This is custom work, not off the shelf at the mall....

+1. Most small scale custom artisan items take time to deliver. I've had to wait a long time for a custom built amplifier as well. The upshot is that they are exceptional quality items, they are small scale, hand made and retain their value very very well. Also you deal with a real person, not a company image. Frank is a really great guy to deal with and very good at setting the right expectations imho.

We really need to get things back on track here, seems we are even starting to feed the trolls rolleyes.gif

Let get back on track with the appreciation of Franks work. Peeps have ordered and received cables including me so let's get some positive posts going instead of turning this thread into something else.

I'm not a fanboy, I love Negura's use of the word artisan. It encompasses everything Toxic Cables is about. "Über quality, man made products" we have seen many analogies over the past few pages.

Let it be said for anyone researching a prospective purchase, you will unfortunately be subjected to a long lead time. However, you will be rewarded for your patience. Do not order and then bitch over the lead times. Good things come to those who wait.....

Just for nostalgia (and for all the peeps wondering about longevity) here is my original Silver Poison which was one of the 1st ever made and being used daily still.

Sorry about the rubbish pic, ipad isn't brill in low light but you get the gist!

I got the IEM cables for my JH16 quickly and I can tell you it's worth the wait. I too am waiting for since March and I don't mind. In a world of lousy quality, mass manufactured products, I value craftsmanship and sometimes waiting is the price you have to pay.

Who cares if its just him. If your in a hurry, go elsewhere. He's a man of good business ethics and pushing him will only stress him more. That's not fair. Same with all the other quality players in this business like Jack Woo.

When it comes, I'll be happy, and probably order more product in the meantime. That's my two cents.

I learned in this hobby that the better the quality a product is, the longer the wait.

Just manage your expectations or don't buy.

Guys remember its not a production line in some factory were talking about. Franks cables are meticulously made by hand with paying close attention to detail with the utmost care. Just ask myself or any others who have received their cables and you will find that extra time he spent working on each is like a piece of art.....If you don't want art .....You Cant wait.......Don't order.....simple as that.biggrin.gif

Agreed! Furthermore I know how much bullsh... meat trolls are feeding on! tongue.gif

 

I am still burning my virus cable (almost done if I believe my precise calculations) and I am still writing my review, actively... But here is some notes I got so far (just as a reminder I have my LCD2 v2 plugged to my Woo WA6SE thanks to the Magnificent virus cable from Frank)

 

- A little bit brighter than the stock cable, which in my opinion is good, very good!

- The bass are more precise, active and tight.

- The soundstage appears improved. I said "appears" because I was not always finding a difference between the two cables on some tracks.

 

Overall experience? Greatly improved! Can you elaborate? No, you will have to wait for my review! How long before it comes out? Well I can safely say that the review will be ready before Frank finishes completely his backlog haha tongue_smile.gif

Sorry to say that unlike you I am the patient ones and have been waiting for Frank's cable for +20 weeks and my SW will arrive any time within the week.
