I would agree with Matt the cable is quite nice for such a small operation like Dan has. Flexible, durable, and functional, which is all you really need. Not the prettiest thing to look at but if you want something with nicer aesthetics order the connectors and make one, or have someone else make one for you. 

 

Thanks Greed.  Looks like a consensus.

It's nice that the connectors are readily available but my lack of soldering skills might kill my Dog.  That would be sad...

That's what she said!!!!!

 

Anyway, I agree that a longer cable for home use would be perfect but at work, where I mostly use my headphones, the length does not bother me at all. Also agree on the materials and flexibility.

 

 

P.S. Listening to Esperanza Spalding on the Alpha's... oh so NICE!!! BTW, surprised that the FiiO X3 is still playing (I turned it on at 8:30am, it's 7:00pm and this is OUT OF THE BOX, no charging... yup it's new as well... ;-))

The fiio x3 actually powered the AD quite decently. :blink:

I have it's Line-out connected via RCA to the Schiit Magni (not headphone out...)

 

Wait... are you asking? Or saying? LOL!

haha...I'm SAYING that it powers it well. I own both. :wink:

With the Analog + GS-X mk2 these Alphas are very revealing... just tried some Major Lazer... talk about Lazers!

Crummy video on adjusting the set screw.  We'll do a better version after RMAF.

It'd be nice if you could eventually post FR plots with different settings on the bass port.  I know it won't be the exact same throughout all Alpha Dogs you make, but it can at least give a little context.

I just read a review of AKG K712 Pro below. So what do you think? I know that the Alpha Dogs are closed back design but in the future we could see some comparison between them.

Lasik surgery is a lot cheaper here. You can pay like $100 for a year in installments. 

My Lasik cost me $2400 like 6-7 years ago. mad.gif

(my bad, $3200 was my engine/electronic work on the old car)

By god that's no way to use your money.

 

All of that could have been spent on improving the midrange with a perfectly good diamond cable and a bottle of magic stablizer pebbles. Add in some Quiznos, reruns of the Sopranos. and you're set for the weekend *grumbleswhatawastewhatawasteLasikmyarse*
