Just read the thread about toxic cables where I was considering a XLR cable for my HE-500, very funny but also kind of a sad read. Great sounding cables and fine work, but some guys waited up to 6-8 month before they got their cables. Frank should rename the shop toxic waiting . I find another solution until Franks has hired some Elfs to help him.
One Taurus 2 should be moving in my direction
I also cancelled my cable order after waiting more than 5 months. I didn't mind the waiting, just the lack of feedback. My stock headphone cable has now turned all green, so I'll probably have to shop for a new one soon anyway, but it won't be a Toxic cable.
Lets us know how the Taurus sounds with the HE-500. I'm planning on getting one of these somewhere in the future to replace my Mini-X.
