:L3000: Proud new owner of my third Norne Audio cable. Enter the Nameless One, a custom silver 8-wire creation by cablemaster Trevor Goldman. Sleeve is silver/black slim herringbone. Splitter is Wenge wood. Connector is Oyaide P285T. His pre-shipment picture below mine.

Just placed my first order with a silvergarde s3 clear, definitely stoked. Anyone know what the current turnaround is roughly? Thanks!
I got the same one and it was about 2 weeks from order to it being received. Order was placed exactly a month ago. You should e-mail them directly to get better estimation.

Great choice, I use the same with my Focal Stellia's and they sound great! I received mine in about 5 days. But, I live close to Norne Audio and I think I got lucky with my particularly order. I would say 1-3 weeks? Chris

Any thoughts on the Oyaide 1/4" vs Eidolic? Purely an aesthetic decision?


For me it was mostly an aesthetic decision. I've ordered it on every Norne so far. I just don't like the look of the Eidolics with all the carbon fiber. I think the Oyaide looks more sophisticated and the Japanese build quality has a very solid, sturdy feel. The Eidolic is an aluminum barrel mated to a multi-piece copper alloy body. The Oyaide is CNC machined from a bar of brass and nickel-plated.

Yes indeed Oyaide makes top notch stuff. I've used Eidolic on my Norne cables in the past but plan to go w/ Oyaide on my next.

As long as the Mfg uses high quality materials it shouldn't matter electrically. Most people go with a brand or another based on their looks.
Furutech, Oyaide, Eidolic, Viablue, ETI, Neutrik/Rean are some of the more premium Mfg.

My Skraug finally arrived today, after being Stuck in customs for what felt like an eternity.

Right in time for a prolonged Weekend.

The buildquality of the cable far exceeded my expectations. It's thicker than any Stock cable I've ever seen and at the same time 10x more flexible. I am blown away.

I personally like Eidolic terminations, even though I'd have preferred the 4pin XLR displayed on the Website instead of the new one.

Had this cable for a year or better but was browsing this thread, saw a few pics of Volsund cables and was inspired to show off mine.

I love the color combo of this cable, as soon as I saw an example of this color combo I knew it was what I wanted, still love just as much to this day. Can't forget to mention that the Volsund is an excellent match to my tastes, sound wise with the Clears. The Clears come with a 3 nice cables but they are really stiff and uncomfortable to use IMO.

Without any further ado....

I’m new to the Norne brand, tried posting a question on an older forum and was redirected here (thanks koven).
I need what appears to be in one of the pics above.. a converter from male 4 pin to 6.5TRS to connect my Utopias to a Chord Dave. My Silvergarde cable came with the headphones, so I’m eager to try... can Trevor provide a converter or has anyone else tried an alternative quality solution ? Thanks in advance for any advice.

@Naimthatune , absolutely, Trevor can make you a silvergarde adapter in whatever length you would like. Reach out to him.

If it were me, especially with that high end of a cable and headphone, I would want the the matching cable adapter as opposed to using some other cabling.

Yes, he made a similar adapter for my Silvergarde which perfectly matched the cable. Email communication with him is very helpful, although may take several days. The quality of his craftsmanship and integrity of his character in dealing with customers more than makes up for any delays...worth the wait!

You need this:

This is for an older model but Trevor can make it out of your Silvergarde config easily.
Reach him out by email. It's on his website. He'll reply whenever he can.
