Sometime thicker or stiffer cable also create auscultation which affect the listening experience especially while moving about.
I think if you get the Khan thinking it’ll be a strict upgrade to the K10, you’ll be disappointed.
Now I much prefer the Khan, but it’s a very different sound.
I've never tried the DHC Clone Fusion Cable, but I've seen that it won best of 2018 at Headphonia. I've cable rolled quite a bit with my encores and found that the Silver X Gold cable from Noble improves the sound quality the most to my liking. I tried them with some of the Litz cables from Campfire audio, including the SXC 8 Reference, which brings out an insane amount of detail, but it brings out way too much treble, and reduces the bass in a way that is not enjoyable. Other cables predominantly made from silver tend to cause the same problem - the Clone Fusion might be different. Its difficult to tell.
Quit headfi whilst you are ahead is my motto.
If only! I am working on appreciating what I have though.
A Khan popped up on the local used marketplace. Tempting...
Did they give a reason for selling them?
Nope, but Korean audiophiles often tend to be pretty fickle and like chasing FOTM products. I wouldn't be too surprised if he's selling it to try out the FIBAE Black (just released) or Rai Penta (restocking soon) or something that's coming out in the near future.
The person's only asking for $1900ish for it, and considering that you get the Dragonfly Red on top of that, it's a solid deal I think. (Probably net $1750~1800 once you sell the dac?)
The price at the shows for brand new with the discount is $1919. So those are used, but like you said, have the Red included.
Well I’m in Korea, so MSRP here is $2672 ($2405 after a membership discount). A <1 week old Khan for ~20% off street price isn’t too shabby.
Thanks @Watagump, @SDBiotek, and @FullCircle. I’ll stick with the stock cables as it sounds great. I was just wondering if there were any improvements to be had by trying a different cable.
