    The more I look at it, the more I like it.
    I do think it's good.
    The fact is, no matter how closely I study it,
    No matter how I take it apart,
    No matter how I break it down,
    It remains consistent.
    I wish you were here to see it!

    I've got a pair of Steve's XLR cables here I'm anxious to try, but I can't until Audio-gd comes through and finally delivers my new DAC.  They've changed the delivery date on me 3 times.  The Q cables look very nice and are very lightweight, so I'm sure they'd make for a very comfortable headphone cable.  I'm still trying to convince Steve to make some HD800 cables.

    Which DAC did you order?

    The RE7.1.  Originally I had the RE1, then the RE7, and now I'm going for the latest and greatest to see if there's any noticeable difference.  It's also being wired with OCC silver.  I've always loved Audio-gd's gear because it's exceptional for the price.  Their top-tier stuff sounds really, really good when paired with top-tier components.
     
    Apparently their lead times now are 1-2 months for the RE7.1 but my expected date of completion has changed 3 times so far.  Back when Kingwa was communicating with customers, turnarounds were about 2-3 weeks.  I've only been able to talk to Edwin (as I don't think anyone can get ahold of Kingwa anymore, not sure why) and he said they are very busy and short staffed.  But if they have gotten so busy why not put on more people to get the orders out quicker and on time?  Some companies have a hard time coping with growth and I would really hate to see his sales go down because of avoidable lengthy turnaround times.

    It's OT, but AFAIK Kingwa is having trouble getting all the parts he needs.

    Even if I were willing, there's still the connector issue.

    Connector availability issues will soon be fixed.

    Yep, some of the cable vendors are saying "WE'RE MAD AS HELL AND WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE!" so there should be some available soon.
    It's only hurting Sennheiser's business by not offering the connectors.  Having aftermarket headphone cables only serves to increase sales, not decrease them.

    And the product page does mention that the 7.1 is "difficult for building", but that looks like a monster DAC. I have been looking into upgrading to the NFB-1ES myself, so I was wondering about the availability of those.

    Rob, gotta love the Indiscipline reference. that's a from a ground breaking album from a ground breaking band. i saw the Discipline (and other) tour(s) a whole bunch of times - fantastic! they re-invented how a rock band functions. i wish you were there to see it! [​IMG]

    Will it be a straight clone or will they improve the design? Namely, making the solder cups on the pins more adequate for larger than 28 gauge wire. That's what turned me off on them even before Sennheiser strong armed ODU.

    Yeah. Seems Sennheiser has a bad case of the NIH (Not Invented Here) corporate mentality.

    I don't understand why it's more difficult to build than the Ref 7 was.  They aren't using separate ACSS modules this time, but instead putting the circuitry directly on the main boards.  Wouldn't this be (if even marginally) less work?
     
    I'm fairly patient when it comes to waiting for gear.  I'm not one of those people who's world will end if my purchase isn't here within a week.  I just don't think it's right to have a delivery date changed on someone three times.

    Three times? How 'bout... Hmmm.. I forget. How many times was it? [​IMG]

    Not sure Steve.  I'll see if I can find out.
