Cypher Labs Theorem 720 - Page 21

Or get the new Picollo.

I'm wondering if anyone has opinions on copper digital cables vs silver digital cables with the 720. I am going to buy a couple different lengths of lightning (for iPhone/iPad) to USB Mini from Forza Audio Works and they offer both OCC 7N Cryo Copper and Silver.

catcherfly, I've asked Forza audio the same questions:)

I'll be going with the hybrid copper/silver version with the theorem, both for the usb mini to lod, and try also their XLR cables (230€ for 1m pairs). hope they'll turn to be good

Deanorthk,
Have you received your Forza cables yet? I'm wondering how the hybrid LOD cables sound with the 720

Hey:)

 

Sadly not yet, my theorem 720 is not here yet, so I've put a hold on my forza audio order...using my heir audio 5.0 as it is fopr the time beeing.

To those who use ipod touch as music transport, do you use the included lightning cable? I tried my brother's ipod and Flac player+ and I was disappointed with the SQ. Will Onkyo app provide a bit perfect output?

Ordered a 720 from moonaudio last week. Looking forward to how it pairs with:

 

5th generation 64gb iPod touch

 

Shure 846

 

Sony MDR 7520

 

Sennheiser HD8

 

Sennheiser IE80

 

Aurisonics ASG2

I've just received the 720...very nice. I have to say after trying out only my IEMS (ASG2, SE846, IE80) I am VERY happy with the sound I am receiving using the lighting adapter to 720. I have only had about 30 minutes so far, but I can describe the overall sound as being lush and neutral. Exactly what I was looking for. There is minimal hiss. I don't know what all the drama is about regarding the hiss and iems. It is knit-picking on such an incredibly small con. It's like saying you can't stand a gorgeous supermodel because she has a wrinkle on the back of her leg. Oh well, I was nervous reading how the hiss was too much for some, before receiving the 720. Now I am relieved that it is pretty much nonexistent. On low gain, I can barely hear a hiss...with the volume knob turned 10% the hiss is gone. Going from a c421, which was a nice unit, the 720 is a legitimate upgrade in quality/sound.

This is encouraging to hear as I have just purchased some SE846 IEMS and am aware of there low impedance. I'm after a mobile rig and have just got iPhone 4s , iPod Classic 2g, Mac Pro etc....and was very tempted on the Theorem 720 rather than go portable dap route but, like you, worried reading about hiss . Be interesting to see how your 720 and IEMS get on. Oh and sorry in advance as I'm very new to this forum.
