I tried to moonwalk, but I was on Jupiter. I fell so hard it cratered the ground beneath me, turning my bones into powder, which formed quickly into diamonds. Pinky don't dance no more, but I'm worth a fortune.

So Pinky, will your Phantoms or Legend X use that crater pic for your next faceplate? Please don't use Uranus for the faceplate...PLEASE DON"T

Yesterday, I tried EE whole EP & X lineup. My impression is positive with this line-up. Among all I like Nemisis most with my own specific setups (DAP, ear tip, cable), but I found that It is quite source (DAP) dependant. Unfortunately the demo units are not fully burn-in yet. and there should be 'matching' issue to be concerned. In case of Legend X, what type of cable do you guys who ever tried think that it should give a best matching? @ironpeg Could you give me any advice?

Horus, is the best match for me. A bit more touch in clarity, more bass extension and rumble, retaining treble sparkling. While my wife likes Mars+Leonidas.

Those Effect Audio cables they all come with are just outstanding with it. I personally also liked the new prototype 8 wire cable they had. I only heard the Legend twice. Once with each cable. I loved the new one that will go for 1200 USD or so.

I didn't hear it with the Horus. I was just so into the new ones, lol. It's the Horus line at least, lol....I believe they are Palladium coated copper. There are two and they are the same wires, but with a different braid. Yes, it makes that big a difference by changing geometry.
