gmahler2u, Since I just got the Roxannes two weeks ago, it came with the new improved cable with metal collars.  No issues at all.  My custom Whiplash balanced cable should be here next week.  I'll post pics when I get it.

 

 

delrosa81, I've had the RWAK120-B and lightning for about a year now and I won't be replacing it anytime soon.  I compared it with the AK240 last month for several days and returned the AK240 cause my current setup beat it in every way.  The Lightning amp is truly special with IEMs.  I get zero noise, absolutely none, and amazing bass, mids, highs, etc with the Roxannes.  Even my pico slim fed from RWAK120-B gives me slight hiss when I turn it up, while the Lightning I get no hiss up to deafening volumes.

 

Roxannes sound amazing running from a fully balanced setup.

Oh no, you are making me very very tempted, I am actually considering the Mezzo mod for my Ak120 as I prefer a less intrusive mod to the exterior especially with regards to keeping the volume knob. Now you are making me very tempted. How does it compare if you listen to the RWAK120 directly and also with your lightning amp? Any significant difference with regards to sound signature? 

 

Roxannes are amazing but the extremely long waiting time for the CIEMs is rather off putting though I really love the carbon fibre.

You can't use the RWAK120-B without an amp, but since the amp makes so much of a difference (for me), I don't want to use it without one.  When I am on the move, I use the 120 with the pico slim amp.  I am strictly an IEM guy.

 

I believe the long wait is for the custom carbon fiber ones only, but unless you got it during last years black friday sale, when they were still only charging $200 (instead of $500 now) for the carbon fiber option, you will be paying a lot more.  I think the price is $2150 now with carbon fiber.  I paid $1450, but waited 9 months.  To me, it was worth the wait since I still had my JH16s to hold me over.

Oh ya I forgot the RWAK120-B cannot be used without an amp as it is only line-out with full volume and non adjustable. Silly me lol.

 

Yeah but if I had to get the Roxannes, then I will only settle for carbon fibre cos Im a carbon fibre whore lol.
