Frank's work is Exceptional and the sound is second to none.

I know there are a lot of Nay sayers but I know my ears and I know The Silver Poison has made a 

beautiful set of Iem's sound even more fantastic. :)

 

This is why Ive asked Frank to make a similar cable up for me specifically for my HD25's...

I asked him about the HD25's as well awhile ago. He did not have a pair himself to use as a template. I think he has some Amperiors on order and they should be a match for the 25's as well.

Well here is my most excellent prize from the FiiO photo contest.

A brand new shiny E17 to mate with my C3, just need a way to attach them nicely together. biggrin.gif

Shipped from the headphonebar in Vancouver, who threw in a bonus L8 & L9 cable.

Big thanks go to FiiO & the headphonebar.

Please let us all know how the Toxic Cables SP for the HD25s sounds. I might also be interested in one (I have only good things to say about the SP Frank made for my HE-500s). Just one point to look out for, though: I am currently using a cheapish SPC cable from Hong Kong with my HD25s, and it keeps falling out of the groove in the headband. This has no effect on the sound, but is very annoying when travelling. Any replacement cable should have approximately the same diameter as the original steel cable, and fit into the groove tightly enough to stay there when the headband is folded up and opened out again.

Thoroughly recommend you go with some Low Profile Dual Lock strips. Ebay has plenty cheap. I'm not a big fan of the rubber bands around my rig anymore, even though the fiio ones and  similar are awesome. Instead i use the Dual Lock and the little rubber feet fiio supplies with my rig to give it clearance from surfaces.

Rudi, what are the differences between the modded AK and stock? Do you think the stock would also sound good with IEMs? Please try.

You need a balanced cable to go between the DAC and the amp very_evil_smiley.gif

Did you find much difference? I thought it might have been slightly clearer (and with 24/192 support), but not enough to justify carrying a thick optical cable around.
