It seems Frank started with the rectangular metal type then went with cylindrical carbon fiber (which is on the sleeved one I purchased) and then back to the rectangular version :confused:

 

Can anyone (preferably Frank) explain the reason for this. Also, I'd  like to know if there is any type of trade-in upgrade possible (ie silver poison -> widow) or would I have to sell the poison and buy a widow? I'm not sure I'd bother as the poison sounds great but it would be good to know for future reference (pun wasn't intended but I'll let it stand ;) ).

 

 

Reason is very simple, i am always trying to make my cables better and look nicer. The Aluminium one is new, i never started with this.  These are also offered on certain cables, not all.

 

Customers can still request the older splitters on sleeved cables, including a variety of Viablue ones.

 

Sorry, i do not offer trade in.

 

Will be going through all messages tonight.

 

Here's a pic of the old carbon one, along with the first one and the new aluminium one. I only cover both ends of the carbon tube and then round out the ends, rather then covering the whole tube with heatshrink, which is the easy route and i don't like just going for easy.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90  

 

Pictures on the website still show the old ones, as those pictures were taken 2 years ago.

I have bought LCD3 recently. As there is no trade in I will sell my HD800 as well as the SW and post something in the Trading Forum when I am not too busy.

Why not send the SW to Frank for retermination or add a HD800 to LCD3 adapter ?rolleyes.gif Your waiting time will be much shorter than sell the existing cable and buy a new one from Frank.

Thanks for all the comments. I wasn't too concerned about the Silver Poison being too bright, but after reading longbowbbs's review of the Silver Widow I changed my order to that instead with the comment about more space and bass impact clinching the deal.

 

I hadn't heard about the SW when I ordered the SP else I would have gone for that in the first place.

 

Unfortunately it will be a while before I can try them.....

How bout crystal piccolino?
post #5170 of 6510

Long time lurker and this is finally my first post on Head-Fi.

 

As a feedback item, have you thought of offering Toxic Cables gift cards? With the holidays upcoming, might be a good way to let their families/friends know what they really want. Your work looks excellent, I'm looking forward to being a future customer. Cheers!

Does sound of crystal or widow sound better?

Crystal is 4x the price? Some people like the SW and others like the crystal.

Actually not even 2x. The Widow for headphones starts at £240, while the Piccolino starts at £445 for the same length.

Oh, right. 

 

But the CP is 2 wire right? So the actual wire costs a lot more than the SW?
