yes, 26AWG silver plated copper. fairly inexpensive, light, easy to braid. sounds as good as other cables i've tried.

The Widows looks just like these. I have them terminated in a 4 pin balanced connection. Then I ordered a balanced to SE adapter so I can use them either way.

No it isn't. I bought the cardas used for 100€ because I wanted a short cable to replace the Stock one . i'm listening music on my desk and i don't have any use of the 3 meter stock cable ;)

Just listened to my new HD800s for the first time. I cannot imagine listening to anything else. Truly amazing sound. I don't find it to be too bright either.

post #10721 of 24366

Ahh, you finally got your sonett 2! Very nice.

 

Should go nicely with metrum octave and cardas, sounds like a good synergy to me.

 

Now you just need to reterminate that cardas cable with a 4-pin xlr and you'll be all set!

 

Probably takes at least 50h for the tubes to hit their stride as well.

 

But it looks nice! Very cool. :beerchug:

I had one of those amps at my office for a while to listen too. What is the difference to that one and the stratus .

I'm also jealous. I want one and it's not going to happen for me until at least another two months, then I can order it. In your pic it looks bigger than what I imagined. Very nice, congrats
