    Hi friends. Anyone of you guys ever heard of the "The Gold 26" cable from PWAudio? I can't seem to find any impression about the cable anywhere, except a super vague comment on PWAudio's Facebook fan page, saying it "focuses on vocal" (?).

    I'm looking to buy a cable to use with my Campfire Andromeda, along with the ZX2 from Sony. Several trusted ears recommended the Ref 8 from Alo Audio, but there's an interesting offer for a second hand "The Gold 26", which goes about the same price with the Ref 8. The dealers here are unable to book an audition for me, so it's pretty much blind buy at the moment.

    Any impression/recommendation would be great. Thanks in advance.

    This is my feeling the first time I tried Virginia.

    My (eye) balls was blown away :fearful::confounded:

    I found that Andromeda is too edgy for me.

    So If it was a step from PWaudio the flash cable and I have to choose only between the Golden and ref8, I will go for the Golden for sure :grin:

    Thanks a lot, friend, but I'm not looking to buy from overseas as it's always been a huge problem for me, mainly because of the incredibly incompetent post office and delivery services.

    Noob question, but would a gold-plated silver cable change the Andromeda sound? I'm very happy with this particular IEM and not looking to change anything about the way it sounds, especially in the mid range as I have a lot of not very well mastered music, and "shouty" vocals always make me squirm a bit.

    Most cable always change the sound, much or less.
    Some may recognize, some may not.

    Update: Got PW no5 today and it is certainly a step in the right direction. I'm looking for more of the same effect though, i.e. an even lusher mid. Can you guys recommend me something? Thank you!
    My current top picks are the (cheaper) Gold Plated Copper from Plussound and I'm interested in trying Effect Audio Lionheart/Leonidas as well.

    Haha...I was just joking of course, because of that 'blown away' part.

    You ordered the 4 wire, where I have the 2 wire PW1960. But I really like how the 2 wire 1960 matches my Zeus XR.
    Haven't heard the Beat Audio Virginia myself, but synergy is always the keyword when you buy/try a cable with a specific (c)iem.
    The last few days I listened a lot with my good ol' Solar, which has great synergy with a Norne silver cable :ksc75smile:

    And while we're talking 'bout cables (I would almost start thinking that this is some kinda cable thread): I've got 2 really nice and affordable ones for sale over here

    Sure it will.
    Actually gold-silver cable sounds magical, you should try one.

    I have my Andromeda with Leonidas
  14. beyerdramatic
    Thanks for your recommendation, but isn't the Leonidas built to pair with warmer IEMs?
  15. blazinblazin
    Not necessarily. It depends on your setup.
    I have WM1A to gives all the clear lows and with Leonidas with Andro bringing out all the sub-bass, low rumbles, soundstage and highs.

    Actually no matter how high you goes, WM1A actually smooth out the sharper side of highs. That's what i noticed.

    This setup gave a very huge, deep and transparent soundstage. Sounding very natural and realistic.
