I've been testing things with the Camera Connection Kit with the JDS Labs C5D.




Kirby remix songs + C5D full bass boost + Crossfade M-100 = good workout playlist XD

Thanks for your advice on the ER4 series. I am using the 4S to try different Opamp of the E12DIY. Have been very fun!


What's so good about the Siltech? Where can I order some just for making a LOD cable?

Hi DMinor I am sorry that I have no idea on where to order this cable. I wish to know, too.

No problem. I just shoot an email to Siltech's distributor in the US about the wire. Will let you know if they sell the bulk wires.

 

It appears Siltech wires use silver/gold. I do have and like the Mundorf Silver/Gold wires for my LOD's. I guess the Siltech is supposedly much "better" and I would like to investigate it without breaking my bank.

 

The best LOD's (out of 10 LOD's I have tried) from my DIY exercise are as follows ...

 

#1 - Pure silver with cotton jacketing for both channels

#2 - Mundorf Silver/Gold for right channel and pure silver with cotton jacketing for left channel

I think it is made from Duchess Crown and the connector is the same as the one used in Wagnus or Fitear 000...

Do you make cable for trade? I am always in the market for cables...

I am planning to get HD800 next year, do you know where to get siltech for them in HKG?

OK, that's gotta be Oyaide like this one then

http://www.aloaudio.com/oyaide-plug-3-5-mm-rhodium-p-3-5-sr

I wish that I've got the time and skills for making my own cables, let alone selling them.

Actually I'm also looking for someone skillful who could be trusted for making great DIY cables. I tried to ask muffy the source of his DIY Duchess Crown but I wasn't persuasive enough to get an answer, LOL

The only reliable source to get genuine Siltech cables locally should be directly from Excel because even the certificate could be "imitated" by someone who's really good at doing that stuff. Other than that, you could also ask whitefang / muffy (Duchess Crown modified for his Tralucent 1+2) who should be experts of Siltech.

Muffy might be able to tell you where to look just in case Excel is too "arrogant" to give you a quote, given they really aren't all that friendly to begin with. If their quote were too "shocking" to buy directly from them, we could also check with this shop in Foshan, Guangdong (I saw the Excel printed on that envelope shown in the 2nd link) and see if those prices were still valid or otherwise

Someone in China also got that from Excel so you might also send PM in Chinese over there

http://www.erji.net/read.php?tid=1452995

Used Duchess Crown in Shenzhen for 7,230 RMB / 2.5-m / single-end

http://2.taobao.com/item.htm?id=36548434507

http://www.erji.net/read.php?tid=1577262

Actually you better ask whitefang / muffy and figure out if Duchess Crown were giving you the right synergy for your own rig. By far whitefang should know much more about options for HD800 than many owners so that's gonna be really helpful for you.



BTW, did anyone get a chance to try these top dogs before?

The N usually stands for purity of the metal(s) used. 7N is the commonly desirable "N" value.

Sorry, Paul. I am out having xmas dinner... Festivals r overrated.. I want to be at home listening to Coltrane with my HE-6
Ibasso db2/pb2 has the bigger sound stage out of the three setups.. But synergy is the key for this pairing or else the sound becomes uncontrolled...
post #8998 of 13467

Have a lovely time. :)

Im glad to hear its a good combo as Im looking at the DX50 for the new year.

I also need to get my own iPod Classic as 'Er indoors won't let me borrow hers any more, Even though she's only using about 2gb's of its 160gb and hardly uses it. 

Lol thats women for ya! 

Im just trying to think which to get first - iPC 160gb or DX50..... 

I suppose I could get a Digi-LOD made up for my iPhone5, That way the CLAS won't be gathering dust....

post #8999 of 13467

Anyway Todays rig - 

 

Rockbox'd iPod 5.5g Video ( All FLAC files )

Mundorf Gold LOD

iBasso Pelican PB2

Balanced Toxic Cables "White Widow"

Sennheiser Amperior
