    Just released :wink:
     
    Comes in balanced or unbalanced, MMCX or 2 pin. We use a blend of OCC copper and silver plated copper, all cables are fully cryo treated in house for that extra edge.
     
    MMCX are in stock, 2 pin will be finished and available soon.
     
    Thank you

    like all ALO cables, this one's a beaut! @KB given that your iem cables are priced rather closely, would you mind shedding light on how they differ sonically? much appreciated

    Ken, Is this similar to the prototype you had at Axpona?

    We are going to be dis continuing all our other IEM cables and replacing them with our new Ref8 cable. The other IEM cables we offer sound really good but I never was quite happy with the ergonomics of these larger cables. This is why I spent a lot of time working on our new Ref8 variant, which feel far lighter than its size really is.

    What is the gauge of the cable strands? 24awg?

    Thanks!

    What would it change in terms of sound signature on the Vega ?

    So @Ken a few questions that are going to pop up anyway..

    1.what you have said above is quite clear but to confirm it, the Litz is going the way of the Tinsel....all models in the near future will instead come with the reference 8. BA and DD.

    2. Will ALO still have the Litz in stock in the future as a buyable option? Or will it be discontinued.

    3. Obviously ALO views the Reference 8 as better ( as the Litz was better than the tinsel).
    What improvements does the Ref 8 have in terms of sound over the Litz?

    As you know I have the Reference 8 and soon will embark on some comparisons myself.

    Thanks

    The new ref 8 will come bundled with the andromeda?
    If ever the case i shall wait for it!

    My assumption was that the Litz will be included with all IEMs, and the Ref-8 will become the only upgrade option once the others (Tinsel, SXC etc) are phased out.
