Good to hear I'm friggin pumped for that pure copper, should sound nice on my budget rig, it's a super portable rig too

Well, it's down to personal preference but there are a lot of guys doing custom cable job and great interconnects and LODs. For instance, Matez who has some great stuff too http://www.faw.nazwa.pl/strona-www/photos/viewer.swf - he made my OCC 7n cryo copper interconnect for 50 bucks. There's also Brian from btg audio who is also doing great work for great prices, I'm particularly impressed with his detachable cable mods

Any other recommendations for ~$30 LOD's? Mostly interested in a boost to the mids.

you aren't serious, are U? but would not you agree that spending 1K on interconnects for a generic cheap CDP makes no sense, same like purchasing 10K speakers and using cheap cable to connect them. it does not matter if you pay 10K or 1K if you do not know what you doing. most expensive does not mean best because each gear has positive and negative synergies. sometimes a 10K amplifier in your system will sound less than a 5K amplifier just because your speakers like the latter :-)

 

as regards cabling BH very much agree to the opinion that a 60$ cable would make little sense unless this is truly handwoven and has platinum terminations :-))

 

in my case i paid 38$ including shipping from HK to Europe, this was not cheap but i am glad with result and consider money well spent. perhaps i am an idiot but i like it this way. :-)))

 

promise, no more multiple posts in sequence.

 

Hahaha no, I'm just making an observation as to what kind of sound system would require 10k cables. I would rather buy a condo with 200k. HOWEVER.... a 200k sound system would be nice popcorn.gif

Well I just got back to the states yesterday so I can now try out my BH.  I'm using it for now with just an OFC mini to mini cable.  It is pretty amazing.  I'm no audiophile (yet?) so I can't describe all that's happening, but it definitely makes my music sound awesome.

 

So far I've tried it with my JVC S500, FX3X, and FXZ100 and they all sound amazing.  I'm impressed, and with my clip+ or ipod nano it's more than pocketable.  Awesome.  And it's still on the charge it was shipped with

@ApoOth, BEWARE.... listening to a 200K system is destroying your sanity, you begin to dream about winning jackpot in lottery after hearing what such equipment is capable of. i always recommend someone willing to lose sleep must listen to luxury line system from MBL: http://www.mbl.de/en/

 

click on Products and then Reference Line to see what masters sound is all about. their strahlradiators make you melt, you cannot stand up, you cannot leave test room, you simply sit there speechless, motionless and crying that you do not have that kind of money to purchase this outright. So... better you never hear it for the sake of keeping sanity and good mental health.

 

 

ApoOth, true, for normal mortals like we are a 200$ K system sounds outrageous but for some dudes with multi million condos even a 200K system may be not enough. Perhaps you heard about Larry Ellison of Oracle ordering a high-end system for his swimming pool which cost him some good 500K if i am not mistaken eek.gif

 

passion is often bordering with insanity... my wife thinks so too but she loves me and tolerates my addiction, perhaps i must order that 200K rig to see what a divorce is all about??? wink_face.gif

 

@Clark, you welcome and yes, after more than one week i still did not have to charge my BH. yes, BH is awesome sounding little baby that will not break your bank.

Oh by no means am I dismissing the idea of a high end system, but I need somewhere to put it first ;) 

As for saving ym sanity. Too late. I've been to too many open air festivals with soundsystems that are tuned so precisely that it did make me cry. I shed a tear (truth; @ WEMF 2012 on the Tower of Destiny, which is also the same stage and sound system and crew that's at Burning Man the week before, during S.P.Y's set). True no home soundsystem would be that enormous, but the sound would be, and it's like chasing a dragon at this point, and a dream. I'm keeping my sanity by going to the festivals on a regular to get my 'fix' of pure sound euphoria. 

And I totally understand the wife situation. My girlfriend tells me I'm nuts and questions 'what . But then again, she buys Black Milk, which is basically $70 designer nylon leggings.... and she owns dozens of them. And she thinks I'M nuts for wanting sound equipment? lol

as surprising as it may sound i fully understand your girlfriend, just think about how many leggings a 200K saving can buy her. besides i can bet that you forget about any audio setup when see her in this leggings :-)

 

jokes apart a good system can be worth a modest 10K and sound like a 25K system, no need selling a small yacht to buy you a good system. sometimes carefully selected components can do a miracle. take us here as example, we are happy with a 100$ amp while people on other forums spend 800$ on players and still no happy. money is good to have but money well spent is even better. in my case i feel a new bug now hitting me as with my hifi. i got such a great synergy from C3 + BH + EB50 that i am afraid now to go the upgrade path because i fear i might spend money and not like the result. same as with my hifi rig, i still cannot pull a trigger to buy a new amp because i am afraid improvements will be not worth it. 

 

so in the end we must feel happy because we can enjoy our audio setups and still are able to afford paying designer leggings for our girls:-)

 

and going to live events is a MUST for true audiophile. i am not missing any major pop-rock concert and visit from time to time Wiener Musikverein concert hall which is among top ten best acoustic halls ever made on this earth. only live sound can help you understand what kind of holy grail you are searching with your hifi or portable setup.
