^^ Welcome to the club. Steve is a righteous cobbler of cables. :D

post #332 of 542

I know, I know - I'm just a little insecure ... other guys seem to be ordering longer stuff than I have.  I feel a little <sob> inadequate ...

 

 

PS. That's two "littles" and an "inadequate" in one sentence, do you think that might mean something ? ... Well, let's leave it there ... for this session ... that'll be $240 thanks. (see, I'm practising - um, practicing).

Usually I would be swapping cables and assessing and quantifying.  Here I'll just rest, get over my exams, enjoy listening and THEN obsess over grain and soundstage depth ... and hopefully reveal to the world that you are a charlatan, a fraud, a snake-oil sales man AND a bad lover - I already have a TMZ interview lined up ... wink_face.gif

HA! Do your worst! As Oscar Wilde once said, the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about. tongue.gif

Be patient. We've got the boys in the lab working on an enhancement drug for cables. biggrin.gif

A little word about Q French Silk balanced vs stock balanced LCD-3 cables: be patient! It took some times to have them made, and as much for them to reach me in Istanbul but I'm very happy to have that much, I was really expecting less. The cables are very well made, very beautiful, comfortable and almost without microphonics. And especially they are very nice sounding!!! And a very great pairing with LCD-3.

 

Compared quickly tonight with the stock LCD cables Q French Silk brought me wider, deeper, more airy soundstage but thicker, less dry/more natural and direct sound. Is difference subtle? I'm pretty sure I can match 99% on a ABX test.

 

That's a lot for a few hundred dollars. You get in the music very much easily, it's for me very good money spent. In fact that's the litlle thing that was missing in my audio chain (until the next :-). I'm really impressed … and happy!

 

Thanks again Steve!

Didn't Steve used to sell 4 pin XLR to Dual 3 pin XLR? What happened to them?

Yes, we used to offer them, but I've always thought that the dual three pin connection was one of the silliest things the headphone industry ever came up with and a couple weeks ago, I decided to remove that option from the website.

Sorry.

Just ordered a 2m Brown French Silk headphone cable from Q Audio, w/ the new Terrazzo plug that looks beautiful! Even came with custom engraving of my name on it. Steve was absolutely awesome to work with, can't wait to get the new cable!

 

Photo: Terrazzo! At least that's what we just decided to name it tonight. We recently commissioned some 1/4" TRS barrels made from this gorgeous Italian resin and have been granted exclusive use of it from our supplier. We will be adding it to our current lineup of paper/phenolic and ebonite. But first we're offering ten exclusive cables made using these barrels. What's so special about these first ten? We will be offering them with custom laser engraving of the purchaser's name (or anything else they want that will fit). This is a one time offer. We will not be offering custom laser engraving as an option. They will not be made available on the website so if you would like one of these first ten cables, please contact us with the subject line "Terrazzo" at theaudioguild@gmail.com Steve Eddy & Denny Muratovic The Audio Guild LL

Damn - I want that plug ... can't afford it, but DAYUM that is fine !! Where's the "envy" emoticon ... Totally stunning !!

It's like smoke in a bottle smily_headphones1.gif. Actually the plug didn't cost any extra, even with the engraving. I think they is a limited supply of them however.

Thank you for the kind words, goldendarko. And yes, the custom engraving was a limited offering. We may work out something down the road for an additional fee, but we offered these first ones for free because the custom engraving will be done during the first production run so it only cost us a little extra. To have the custom engraving done just one or two at a time would cost more.

You won't regret it!  Steve has made some great cables and interconnects for me.  I hope his headphone amplifier he's building becomes as popular as his cables.
