Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    added cable 170 to my list, as well as 051 (new kz upgrade affordable cable), 059 (nice looking grey cable, similar to cables 052, guess wire quality is like best 052 wires), 056 (trn 8 cores, which was missed in this list), and 058 (old last kz upgrade cable).

    170. tw cryo 7n up-occ copper litz 4c (copper,eagle,M): 252..254..268..290..[21.46g]
    structure: 0.07mm*19(OD:1.08mm/28AWG)*4c taiwan frozen 7n up-occ copper litz (independent shield/enamel of every thread in each core); "frozen and strengthened by American cryo parts".
    eagle rhodium plated jack, sandal wood divider.
    mmcx and 2pins terminations, 2.5, 3.5, 4.4mm jacks, available.
    it's thinner than i'd like, but litz shielding can give even darker background than wire used in cable 165 (no litz, but thicker); this is confirmed after first AB, but difference is slight.
    sound is very clean, reference. dark background, bigger soundstage; definition is so great, that i feel better separation and imaging than the rest.

    Thanks a lot mate. Have obviously missed those.

    175 looks very interesting to me. Will watch out for the next sale...

    Very good sound with mixed one too! I bought it for 71€ and I'm quite satisfied.

    BTW special mention for BGVP DX3 mixed (https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/bVXecq9K) cable. I'm using it (mic version) on the go and for 17€ sound is fantastic IMHO (I like it quite more than e.g. Nicehck copper ~20€ cable and others at this price range).

    EDIT: Link correction, don't know why, but the link doesn't work from this forum (but is working for me if I paste it directly in the browser)

    ow no... its another venomous toxic...
    Let me try 165 first... compare to 130
  5. hakuzen
    yea, having cable 165 you are not in a hurry of getting another 7N UP-OCC cable..

    forgive my enthusiasm, i'm in love with this kind of wire, best ones from my stock in terms of sound without a doubt. wish they were a bit thicker, lower resistance, though. and wish i hadn't become too toxic.. :wink:

    Its Ok...
    keep the info, some of guys here need it...

    my 165 shipping is uncertain, due to long public holiday...

    170, is thinner then 130 right? how is the sound impression? weight?
    more stiffer? so I can imagine... if you dont mind
  7. ForceMajeure
    I am asking as well regarding the stiffness and suppleness of the 170.
  8. ForceMajeure
    it seems the 170 is no longer for sale, maybe out of stock or maybe they decided to remove it completely
  9. fokta
    Yes, I noticed that too...

    Will have to hound @hakuzen for a lizt cable now :D

    170 is thinner than 165 and, of course, than 130.
    but due to the sleeve, it's almost as stiff as 165, much more than 130 (where flexibility is remarkable, given the thickness of the wire). guess the rigid dielectric chosen contributes to sound properties of the cable, dunno.
    they are not much flexible, stiffer than you would expect from a 4 cores 28awg cable. more flexible than most thick cables (125, 128, 150, 151, 160, 161, 133, 115, ..) but less flexible than the other 8 cores or 16 cores cables.
    so there are some microphonics (very audible when tapping the cable without music; i can't notice any microphonic noise when listening to music, though).
