Well one with regular pins for Ref1, SE5 and NT6, one with Fitear pins for 335 and one with Roxanne pins...:biggrin:

 

I just got my RWAK back from repair. I had forgotten how exceptional thiscombo is. Can't imagine with the Uber.

Well.  Three of them is one hell of an investment.

 

Apparently you have done homework to compare other OFTL cables and uber became your choice.   Could you please share why uber wins out and what makes it the best as I have virtually no experience in earphone cables from my short headfi journey.

I have not done / finished this job at all. I have tried several cables so far but have yet to try one making an audible difference justifying the price. So if the Uber is as good as people say, I might be tempted.

 

But actually I learned the retail price of the Uber 2 and it settled the issue quite quickly. More than I am willing to pay.

Or maybe you can put this into a different perspective.

 

You have done your AK240 RWAK which adds cost to the original base 240.  The same way you approach the decision getting the uber 2...minus the cost you'd pay for any regular/stock cable and the balance is the cost of the uber.  It does bring an improvement to the regular Tralucent Silver V2 that I have and you yourself to judge how big the difference is once there's a chance to audition it.

 

Cheers

True, but the resale value of cables is usually low. So if was to sell the Silver & Gold V2, I would probably get half of its worth. So the net cost of the Uber would be enough to get me Lab 1 or Earwerkz Legend...

Well.  Unfortunately in the hobby that we are practicing depreciation is a harsh reality.

 

I think you still need the Silver/Gold for on-the-go usage as I don't think the new uber could serve that even it is more flexible than the old one.
