Thank you @Eric Chong and @twister6, I will reach out to @Andrew DiMarcangelo to see what can be done. @Eric Chong an extra thank you for sharing what the two cables would provide experience wise with the Nio. I should have mentioned I was also tempted by the P8 Plato x Socrates because I am a bit curious what the addition of the P8 Plato would add to the Socrates, but from reading this thread it sounds like the Plato is not a good fit for the Nio. I do really like the Project 8 cable I have. Any chance of a P8 Socrates for 2022? :)
Heyy no worries at all. Happy to share :)

The Plato X Socrates itself is another thing in itself. It's more similar to the Socrates than anything like the Plato. We've developed a special variant of "P8 Plato" that accentuates the inherent Socrates traits really well.

Meanwhile, yes! We'll be looking forward to developing a P8 Socrates sometimes this year for sure!

Time to relax with a subtle bit of Plato going on. Love this pairing with the Shanling M8 in the equation. Gives a lovely clear, yet analogue feel to my Phantom.

Sleek! Long time no see buddy :) How have you been?

Yeah, been lurking around in the shadows a bit. 😉
All good here. Hope the same goes for you and that you will have a great Year of the Tiger with lots of shows to travel to! :beerchug:

@Eric Chong Feel free to go ahead and send me an invoice now and take my money! :xf_wink:
@Eric Chong yeah, you can go ahead and take my money now too for a Project 8 Socrates. :)
Sweet news indeed and look forward to this year's Project 8 release, and the year has only just started. lol
After your comment about the Plato X Socrates, I find myself wondering if it'd be a good pairing with the Nio? I'm really leaning towards buying one now and finding out. :wink:

Nice photo! How goes the pairing synergy? This is one combination that i've not personally tried.

Glad to see you back in the forums again :)

Thank you for the well wishes! I'm certainly looking forward to the shows resumption this year! Especially London, my fav one. I could possibly make a detour to Netherlands after and finally see Barnie! :D

P8 Plato x Socrates adds textural bass and sub-bass extension punch and rumble; slightly more details are noticeable in the mids despite that EXT isn't a very detailed IEM; soundstage sounds slightly deeper and wider than VE EXT stock 8-wire cable but not a night-and-day difference; mids and treble are smooth, crisp and revealing. P8 PxS just augments all of EXTs great qualities and adds more bass extension.

Tennyson's "Feelwitchu" is a great track showcasing P8 Plato x Socrates bass and sub-bass extension with EXT. Stock cable = great bass / P8 PxS = tickles my ear drums, LOL.

@Eric Chong The new P8 Plato silver is the perfect Socrates partner and P8 PxS is one of the best creations you and your team has crafted. My Aeneid is a bit jealous.

You're always welcome! Barnie will show you some of his favourite haunts. Mind you, you'd better be prepared because he can stand there one second...

Erik, you don't feel offended that instead of mentioning about taking a detour to Netherlands to see you or Nic, Eric wants to see Barnie instead? :p

Lol! Not in the least. It's actually very common these days. Half the village here knows Barnie by name, even people I can't remember ever meeting, and I'm always just "Barnie's dad". 😂

Talking about Nic. A few months ago he apparently rode his bike up to the woods here to visit friends of his who had rented a holiday cottage. I probably passed the cottage while walking Barnie and didn't know he was there.

Glad to hear that the PxS is doing great and showcasing its inherent qualities on the EXT as well. The sub extensions and the layering / texture is one to look forward for with this piece. I've had the PxS hooked onto the OG Ely, hence was always curious about the Ely EXT and its pairing combination.

Heheheh! I feel like i'll be amused all this with Barnie. He always had that "woops" innocent face lol!

Eric wants to see Barnie instead?
Nah, before we got married, my wife used to tells her parents i'm passing by to visit her dog and not her. I'll be there spending most of the time with the puppy than with her haha!
