    Got my Silvergarde SX (20awg new version) for my Campfire Audio Jupiter yesterday. First Impression after a 4h listening session: Great cable! It sounds like my Draug Silvers little brother. Very smooth, resolving and open without any harshness. Very pleasant!!!

    Awesome cable and the exact one I want for my K10U! Congrats

    Do a search on this. I believe this has been discussed a bit. S3-C has less silver content. It depends what you're using it for, but theoretically, the S3 will be more resolving (assuming the rest of your chain is more resolving).

    I posted the below back in may regarding S3-C vs S3.

    It's been awhile since I've done a direct comparison (have to look to see if I did a full write up or not), but with my HEK V2, my preference was with the S3. in the end, I've standardized on the S3 for everything.

    Matt, isn't that a hella good copper cable?? I tested one for my Senn HD 800 then bought that one, one for my Senn HD 600 & 650 and one for my ZMFs.

    ^^ Yeah, it's about as good as it gets with pure copper. Just a very even and balanced signature with great tone.

    I like the streamlined look without the big triangle splitter on that one, and it goes well with the HD650. I love that cable with my ZMF’s, and now want it for my HD650. I can only imagine how good it is with the HD650.

    As you already have the Norne cable you really like, have you considered having Trevor make you an adapter to use with your HD650?
  10. Wes S
    I am not a fan of the added bulk and look of adapters, but appreciate the idea. I also don't like changing cables that much, for fear of wearing out the sockets, on cables and expensive headphones. So, I typically have one cable for each headphone. Thanks for the suggestion, though!

    For you bigger $ hp( ZMF) I can see having a great dedicated cable. For the inexpensive HD650, and knowing how nice Trevor adapters are (BTW, they are not bulky) it seemed like a good option for the your HD650. I doubt you would 'wear out the sockets'. :yum: Having Norne cables you know Trevor uses good connectors. I don't follow the HD650........... so are the connectors on the HD650 inputs prone to failure?

    I seem to recall that you often (or always?) buy used Norne cables. I'm sure you'll find one here on HeadFi for the HD650. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    I am always in the hunt for one in the classifieds. :o2smile:

    When you are 'In the Norne Hunt' you will find what are looking for!

    Trevors adapters are of very high quality. He matched one with same construction and sleeving as my Silvergarde S3 and it is flawless.
  15. nwavesailor
    Yep, flawless says it all!
    Trevor's adapters are not 'bulky' (they are only a few inches long) and are as well made and beautiful as his cables.
