Well, I just tried it and heard the Beatles singing "Enirambus Wolley", so there must be something to it!

I'm sticking with my stock version since more bass would be too much for my tastes.  If I had another pair I would totally try it.  I'm tempted to get another pair but I'm saving for an another amp right now.

 

 

I'll let you guys have all the fun for now.

Guys!  We need to organize a Mikros 90 Meet.  It can be like a "Coming Out" Party for the MLs.  We can introduce these killer CANnonS to the high-brow, disbelieving non-users in the Head-Fi community, as well as let folks like elvergun hear a BASSModded pair.  I'm game.  We can kidnap Scott Gribble and hold him hostage until the Martin Logan marketing department pays his ransom, with release contingent on (a) the Mikros 90 staying on the shelves and (b) the Mikros 100 full-size circumaurals coming to the shelves.

 

OH, YEH!!!  

 

BRING IT ONNNNNNN, MARTIN!!!!!!!

Do you think elvergun could handle it? It might just be a bit much for his mind :D

Damn the more textured (more grainy???) strident sound of the FiiO cable sounds kinda more fatiguing with more busy/ faster music genres. Need to lower the volume in order to not get ear raped. haha  :  (

 

Interesting what a lil' cable change can do for these Logans. :)

Know what you mean.

I ran the FiiO after several days without and I liked the way the Mikros 90 got their "Perry Como" on with this cable.  Nice for quiet, slow venues.  Walking around the house in flannel pajamas, fleece-lined mocasins and a tepid mug of coffee (with 3 sugars and 4 creams) feel to things with the FiiO.  

 

[Or am I just trying to justify the $30.99 I dropped on this cable?]

 

"Perry Como, here I come!!!"

I would say that the bass is fuller and closer to the [basshead] ideal.  But still "perfect" in essence.  There is more of a bass presence.  So, it is Bass in the present perfect.  : )

A postcard from some Mikros Modders on vacation:

 

 

I think that's Lors in the foreground, wearing the green shirt and khakis.  He's got first dibbs.
