Thanks! I just checked and that is not possible, I'd end up damaging the amp trying the one I want, only XLR to 4.4mm or 6.3mm to 3.5mm but never balanced to se or viceversa
Actually using a XLR terminated cable with an XLR to 6.3mm adapter on the SE output of the amp is save.

Using a 6.3mm terminated cable with a 6.3mm to XLR adapter on the balanced XLR output on the amp is NOT.

That means the cable from the link is save, the other way round is not

Yes XLR to 6.3mm I have one and it works flawlessly but not the other way around unfortunately, I'm about to receive d8000 pro and wanted to use it balanced on Jot 2

Well you can still use it on the SE out if the Jotunheim.

However for the balanced out you're right, you will need a completely new balanced cable.

So when a cable is "in stock", does that mean that there are that number of them already made and waiting to be sent out, or does that just mean that all the parts are ready to be put together? Sorry for the simple question, but I've never been sure.

This means that I have all parts in stock. Considering all lengths and possible connector combinations there are, it would be impossible to have anything pre-made.


Thanks!

Hi @Matez do you have any kind of adapter 6.3mm female to xlr 4-pin male? is that possible?

You can go from a XLR to 6.3mm, but not the other way around.

Guess the whole pandemic increased demand (or created material shortings)

That's for sure, folks consume more stuff they can enjoy at home and the entire industry is rather well I'd say.

However Forza Audioworks seems to be on the Fast end of the Spektrum

We do what we can to send everything within a reasonable time frame, as in a week or two if we have all parts in stock.

Thanks and thanks... you mind reader you :D

Nice @RayUK . I have the same cable for my He1000se. Now I am deciding what to get for my new arrival LCD4.


Very nice cans. I had fun having around HEKv2 for a good year or so.

Received my FAW Noir HPC Mk2 for my He1000se and to connect to my ifi micro signature (4.4mm) some weeks ago.
Awesome build super nice cable. Not as heavy as I expected.
Sound is really nice, I think much better than my old audiocrast cable. The bass is more present and deeper, the treble is not so sharp anymore, but this is just my personal subjective opinion :wink:

my only really small cosmetic issue is that the heatshrink on the 4.4mm connector is transparent and the ones on the 3.5mm connectors are black, i would love black for both sides.

definitly recommend the cable!

Thanks a lot. You have a great setup there and it's good to know that my cable works in there well, enjoy!

As for heatshrink on the 4.4mm, there are actually two. The one with my logo is black, and transparent heatshrink that goes on it prevents any damage to that logo.
