Why not using low profile connectors? Unless you do not use it on the go?

because its probably really hard to find a low profile connector that is shaped like that and I would still loop instead of staying flat

I believe Lee uses that cable because he really enjoys the sound of the Tralucent interconnect which only comes with straight jacks. Having that interconnect here its a nice sounding cable, though ill try and persuade him to go for a silver cable I rate higher and can be made with right angle jacks. Rather important Lee takes any strain off the S-Mod input, or bad things could happen.

DX50 -> Solid silver IC (recently repaired) w. angled Neutriks -> PB2 -> Plussound 28AWG SPC w. Hirose & clear angled Westone* pins, sanded Neutrik barrel used as a cinch -> Noble Audio K10. 

 

Or, you know, The Rig for short.

 

(No, not Westone, but gold-plated Westone compatible diy pins.)

very nice cable

Where did you buy Hirose (male?) To connect the one (female) of the amp PB2?

I will be getting a mini-uber interconnect in for demo purposes. I'm still debating if I sould get it with right angled jacks. If I like it I will buy it outright (knowing my luck I probably will lol).

I have a 5OCC pure silver cable interconnect that I've generaly never gotten along with. Just makes the sound too aggressive for me on everything I've used it with lol...

I don't use this rig on the go. The uber is too expensive to risk taking out with me. Unless I'm stationary. I've taken the S-mod out with me though.

New SE846 for me... sounds great out of the ZX1. I'm using the white treble filter, and Sony Hybrid tips (the combination of which really opens up the soundstage and provides wonderful detail and clarity). Thought the sound was a bit too rolled off with the blue neutral filter in place.

My favorite portable experience by far-




Solo -dB > Duet > F111

There is one portable element in this next one-



Wild Heaven Invocation and Violectric

cn11, how do you like the SE846's for rock music, I'm thinking about picking up a pair for myself soon to go w/ the FIIO X5 when it comes out. Also, is that the stock cable, any thought's on upgrading it if it's not?

So far I find them great for rock music. The low end is really impressive and contributes to the competence with rock. I do only have the stock cable for now. I'm researching something else to try though. I'm thinking either silver or silver plated copper. I don't believe in spending an arm and a leg for cables though, so I would like to find one under $200. I wish BTG Audio made one with the Shure connectors, but unfortunately Brian doesn't have access to those for some reason.

post #9870 of 14966
Yeah, I feel the same way about cables, don't mind spending a little, but nothing crazy. I think Moon Audio sells a Silver Dragon for them for about $180, anybody have any impressions on that cable with the SE846's?
