    E mails may be slightly slower, and the shipment of IEMS will be impacted.

    CIEMS will be on usual course

    Well, I don't want to open a can of worms on the subject of 3rd party cables... But, I have enjoyed pairing my K10s with a pure silver cable. I'm currently using it with a Toxic Cables Silver Widow. You'll still get by happily with the stock Noble cable, so don't worry too much about that.

    If you're adventurous, however, and you want to get that extra 1-2% out of your portable rig, and you want to add extra bling, by all means, get an aftermarket cable. :)

    The upgraded stock cable that is included with the Khan is pretty good. It also matches the cable that came with my LCD 4z:smile:
     
  5. Malevolent
    Well, given my limited time with the Khan, thus far, I'll take your word for it. :)

    One thing's for sure, though - they certainly look nice.

    People that want both peace of mind and to upgrade the cable the Wagnus are not 3rd party cables.

    Ok long story short...
    My ONKYO DP-X1 battery started swelling and lifted the screen and is long out of warranty. I have looked everywhere and was unable to source a replacement battery. Sent it to US ONKYO repair facility for repair here's a edited answer....

    So my question is what are your sources for your Noble TOL iem's that's not a bank breaker, ie @ $500 USD?

    I know John used the ONKYO and Watta's gonna chime in for A&K (too expensive in my opinion). Don't know if John's still using the DP-X1.

    I'm currently leaning towards the Cayin n5ii which is going for @ $250 USD used.

    Thanks in advance,

    Claus

    I wasn't aware that Noble manufacture cables. If, indeed they do not, then all cables are 3rd party. It is just one of the components in the completed product that they assemble. The genius is in the design...

    Okay, since you brought me up, let me chime in. Are you saying A&K is just flat out too expensive, or are you fine with one under $500? If the latter is fine, hit up ebay or even the for sale section here, plenty can be had under $500.

    The Wagnus is not considered a 3rd party cable that will void the warranty, lets call it a Noble approved 3rd party cable.

    DAP choices are very subjective and personal affairs. With that said, there are many fantastic option that live outside of AK's price range. You can consider a used DX200 or a Hiby R6.

    I got a couple of dpx1

    They work, one has a cracked gorilla glass screen but that is no biggie.

    They are probably in the 80% aesthetic range (few dings etc) put a new dignis cover on it and presto, looks as good as new.

    I'll throw one in for free with the purchase of s khan

    Or

    Make an offer:)

    I do believe the wagnus cables offered, carry the noble logo, making them a collaborative product.

    Good point Wata, I'll take a look around

    I've considered the DX200 & Hiby R6, I guess what I'm saying/looking for is something with the sound signature of the ONKYO DP-X1. I'm also considering the new Fiio M11, though I haven't read any reviews and have no idea what the sound quality/signature is like.

    Call me jaded John, but I think I'm gonna walk away from ONKYO and probably never look back Thank you for the offer.

    Bummer on the Onkyo

    I just love the name, much like nordost, denon, bluapunkt..... just cool sounding names

    When I was a young lad, I always wanted an Onkyo.....

    Any how, I have an AK on the way so the dpx isnt required any longer
