Hmm... I seem to have missed the post(s) about the Auvio cable. I'm definitely about to get that.

What does the auvio cable improve upon the stock and Beats cable?

You'll never catch me you Logan coppers!

I'll get away with every brand I can find, and will steal all micros 90 phones from you! Not to mention those harmans...


Also, I'll probably be able to mod the micros with the new rebate Newegg has. smily_headphones1.gif thanks pata, please erase those three strokes against me after I get my third pair and I mod as well!

Thanks!  The 6 foot cable is only $2.97 at my local radio shack, so I'll give them a try.  Do you think there will be SQ loss in the extra 3ft?

By the way, this cable won't fit the Mikros, and neither will the Zu.

It's too bad the mediabridge cable won't work.  Very high ratings on Amazon.

 

The only other highly rated cable is the InCarCables.  Has anyone tried this one?

I'll compare the 90s to the Live soon, considered the best at their price range, we'll see...

Fired up the Burson last night.

Nice bass rendering, but overall I was missing the tube "realism", body and breath of the Bada's 6SN7 tubes.  The Burson also sounded comparatively 2-dimensional versus the Fitz-improved Bada PH-12.  Plus the dynamics and micro-dynamics edge goes to the Bada.

The GCHA is due tomorrow.  Had a good audition last week at the audio shop.  Let's hear how things play out on the home system.

The winner of the first round (HA-160 v. GCHA) advances to final versus the Lehmann BCL [which I have not found yet].

Will keep the open-cell foam mod going for the next 50-100 hours.
