What gauge are the cores? 24awg or heavier is important if you want to get all the benefits of silver plus a decent amount of weight and body. Lesser gauges can sound thin and a bit anodyne. The actual number of cores makes no difference to the sound it’s all about the quantity and quality of metal.

Note sure of the gauge, all the DIY cables on his site says 28awg so maybe the headphone cable is also 28awg?

I just got the master for my Utopias and it seems like a really nice cable. The Teflon insulation is really cool, slippery and comfortable for listening in bed against my skin. the silver inside gives it a cool shimmery look too.

Hi, I bought the Empyreans second hand, and I was warned it had less detail than say the Stax L700, others answered: you must hear it with a silver cable please. So before I received the cans with stock cable I ordered the Lavricables Grand Litz. I listened to the stock cable some days before the Grand was in the mail. With the stock cable I used the leather pads as they are called more analytical, but with the silver cable I use the velvet pads, since it doesn’t lack any detail, and why choose analytical when you can have sheer beauty? I was warned the Grand is like an Audeze Lcd-4: too heavy, but that is the photo, it is not too heavy. So I will be still a bit careful with delicate silver. My Stax L700 cable has a lot of silver in it. High end music listening seems not possible without the benefits of silver. Thanks Yoram
