Gold has worse conductivity than both silver and copper and is softer that is not gold. Some common sense man.

Yeah, you're right. Gold has less electrical conductivity than copper and silver, but I'll correct you back, saying thay gold is certainly softer and more malluable than copper.

But let's not forget that there are cables that are being sold for prices higher than $1000 that consist of gold wires as well as silver wires. My point here is, gold is still a possibility to what is cable comprises of.

I have not heard or seen cables that use a complete gold stranded wire but there are companies out there that use some % of gold particles meshed in with pure silver cables. I myself have some Crystal Piccolino and Piccolo cables and these have gold in them, very expensive aftermarket cable and imho the best available for headphones.

I may be wrong, but if I recall correctly, Tralucent Uber cables consist of gold strands as well as silver cables.

You're also contradicting yourself, in saying I didn't have any common sense, yet now you're saying cables with gold components are "the best available".

I knew that nothing any portable rig, which is called to perfect so i only wanna say everybody that how is perfected.
For example, I'll set up a portable rig such as IPOD 7th >Fortex HP P1 > Centrance HIfi M8 ( or JDS clabs) > shure 535 ( cable LOD Alo).
How do you think about my set up smily_headphones1.gif

How is the SQ from your dx 50 + T1 ?

Maybe he use as follow with his Shure SE 535 set up
Ipc 7 G + Fostex hp p 1 + ext amp jds labs C5
Ipc 7 G + Hi Fi M8 + ext amp jds labs C 5

If really
Ipc 7 G + Fostex hp p1 as idevice DAC + Hi Fi M8 as AMP can not + Shure SE 535

I dont think can make it , because

Hi Fi M 8 don't have line in and can not use as AMP only
Hi Fi M8 has two input I Device and USB only

Ipc 7 G + Hi Fi M8 as idevice DAC + Fostex Hp p1 as AMP + Shure SE 535

Fostex Hp p 1 he can use as ext AMP , because Has line in
But the strong point from Fostex is their Dac section nit the amp section

IMO

Items used: 
Ipod classic 160gb-wav files / Alo cable Ref-8 / Senn HD800 / Fitear Parterre / Alo Contivental V3 / Alo MK3Bplus / CLASdb / m2m Alo SXC24 / b2b single-core 4 braided cable










* with the mk3b-plus i noticed slight improvements over my previous MK3:
- the knobs on mk3plus is now a lot smoother when i turn it
- i find no static noise at all - they are clean !
- not sure with other unit, but mine seems significantly less hissing than my previous MK3. Pairing this with Parterre, the hiss is VERY soft (at medium gain - i noticed the hiss is softer than my Theorem). Alo has done a wonderful job on this...not to mention the longer batt life. I like it !!
- i don't get a chance to ab-ing them with MK3 for the SQ, so can not comment..

I have demo unit Alo Rx 3 B plus with me now
I use my shure se 215 I have notice HISS Still there , but less than my alo Rx 3 B and my Theorem

Alo Rx 3 B + the SQ more refine and has more bass impact than my Alo Rx 3 B , but less bright than my alo Rx 3 B

IMO

It's nice, but the T1 is maybe slightly defective if that is even possible? It has nice bass, but I along with H20Fidelity and SkyBleu wasn't overly impressed. I will test it against Loquah's T1 soon.

My T 1 and 3 others friend have the same opinion , T1 has synergy pair wit DX 50 use line out
Make our dx 50 more refine in high , better mid and very good bass impact
Pleas try wit bright mini to mini like from silver
Our opinion

Hahaha, sorry all, its not gold wire, just used 7n flat copper ribbon twist as a signal, and 7n UPOCC multi size conductor as ground, oyaide rhodium L shaped mini plug, argentium silver pin connector, Special gold sleeving and thin clear heatshrink.
Its one of my diy project biggrin.gif
