I got my Toxic cables Silver Widow yesterday, and I am just blown away. Someone described it perfectly to me before I got it; it's like you've upgraded from a medium to a high end dac. As with your V3, the imaging has improved considerably. It feels like as a consequence of the improved imaging, the soundstage has improved and there's more clarity and detail.
Everything just sounds so cleaned up. 'Messy' tracks with a lot of different, heavy sounds sound so much better. It's not bright (or warm). It doesn't change the sound, it just improves it. A lot. This cable is really incredible, it just lifts the quality of the presentation of the Velvet to the next level, making it feel like a $900 iem instead of a $700 in comparison. I thought people on the Toxic cables thread were just on a hypetrain, but this cable really stands out from all the cables I've tried (haven't tried the V3 litz, sounds good too).
