Q Cable Appreciation Thread - Page 12

Loving mine as well.  Of course the Red Color is way cool.  Aside from my listening enjoyment with the Q-Silks I love the cable itself and it's lightness.

I wish all headphones came with Q's.



They're gorgeous, soft, and disappear when in use. Love em!

The Red is just totally groovy! And with your equipment is a totally justified WOW!

 

Yes! That's very true concerning the actual cable.

 

I was so caught up in my surprise concerning the sound that I didn't go into that much.

 

Very comfy! 

 

I didn't actually realize how cables were annoying until I realized how comfortable they can be with Q.

 

Especially with the LCDs the stock was really annoying when I was lying down a bit, pressing on my shoulder/chest. That's probably what ruined my stock cables. It was also always getting in the way in general as I'm sure most users noticed. 

 

As I said, I didn't notice until I got the Q!

 

But now.... now I'm spoilt!

Steve says I'm the first to order and receive the brown silk with a brown phenolic TRS plug. Steve was also right in saying it looked wonderful. I've only listened for all of 2 minutes, but it sounds more open and detailed compared to my upgraded Audeze cable. My LCD-2.1's have improved with the Q silk. Money well spent. Now I'm waiting on my newly ordered and tricked out Decware "Rachael" SE34I.3.

Thank Steve.

 

The X-202-B in the picture was the heart of my very first high-end system back when I was about 16 (a very long time ago) along with the matching Fisher Tuner,  a pair of Janzen speakers and Weathers turntable with Weathers strain gauge cartridge. Last year I resurrected the amp from the closet and had it refurbished. Boy did that cost! However, my LCD-2.1sounds great through the Fisher (much more dynamic that my WA2).

 

I just went back and read Warrior Ant's review of the Q silk, so far, I agree with everything he says.

Nice! Very cool that you still have the actual amp you originally purchased.

 

I also got my first "real" stereo system when I was 16, right after I got my first "real" job. Though I think you have a few years on me as this was in 1976. My father co-signed a loan for me and I bought an all Pioneer system from the BX at the local Air Force base. It was an SA-7700 integrated amp, big-ass CS-99A speakers and a turntable whose model number escapes me along with a Pickering cartridge the model number of which also escapes me. I ended up selling it to a friend many years ago, but about five years ago I was feeling particularly nostalgic and bought another SA-7700 and a pair of CS-99A's. As much as I love the SA-7700, it was supplanted several years ago by another love of mine, the more modern, but absolutely gorgeous TEAC A-H500 integrated amp which does a wonderful job of driving my LCD-2 Rev. 2's (the A-H500's headphone jack is driven off the speaker outs through 390 ohm resistors, so it's like driving the LCD-2's with a transconductance amp).
