Anyone heard / own USB Wireworld Starlight, Starlight 7, or Starlight USB 3.0? - Page 5

post #61 of 64

One thing I'd like to mention is that even when I say there is noticeable difference... it takes me a lot of back and forth testing to discern it... if it wasn't for others verifying the same thing without me telling them... I'd actually half-doubt my own judgment and wonder if it's all just some form of proverbial kool-aid that I am on. In other words, while there is a difference, I've never noticed it to be day and night so to speak. If somebody switched cables on me... it'd probably take me a few hours to actually wonder if there was perhaps something different. While I still pour in tonnes of money in the quest for small improvements and to get that little bit closer to my definition of perfection, I acknowledge that USB cable for me has been more of a fine tuning exercise than a game changer. 

 

Having said that, I really can't wait til my new DAC arrives so I can test my Black Cat Silverstar on it. If that isn't an obvious improvement I will be very disappointed given how much I spent on it.

yeah, am into this audio thing..

but it always comes down to $

also, i do like bass, but i also like details, and soundstage, hence my choice of headphones the hd800

but they are bass shy.

i will be changing the cable with a black dragon or alo audio in the near future, but i would like to avoid anything that will make my setup bass shy :P

so i get starlight.. i don't like it.. i want to sell it. if i can not, the game stops there sadly for about a year, as i have other more important investments to make, both for audio, and in real life. if i would have got me a cinnamon, i could live happier until i had the moolah to upgrade that part of the system again, that's all.

thanks for the comparison, i will post a comparison of my no name cable, and the starlight7 when i get it. best i can do, maybe it will help someone make a more documented decision :P

thank you :D

If you have HD 800, and you are looking in the $100 Starlight price range, I can definitly recommand you the Transparent Performance cable. A much, much more robust sounding in the low end register than the Starlight. But less resolute also. A good trade off with the hyper detailed HD 800 IMHO.

thanks for the recommendation.

i was going to upgrade the cable eventually, when i'm done with the setup.

currently just got the x-sabre to replace my meier stagedac, and the upcoming upgrades are: headphone audio cable, then the BH-1, going fully balanced.

after this i was planning on upgrading to the audioquest carbon.

so in case i do not like the starlight, if i can get it sold easily enough, i might take the advice you gave :D

if i can not sell it, i live with it until the time comes when i can get the carbon :P
