Just thought I would throw this out there. I have a 4ft, sleeved Vykari cable with furutech Rhodium plated mini-xlr headphone connectors and the furutech 4pin XLR. It is an amazing sounding cable, but a bit heavy for me (my head is very prone to hotspots). I also have a pair of short mini-XLR to 3.5mm Hifiman adapters also of the Vykari build. I have been indecisively going back and forth with Trevor (who has been obscenely kind and patient with me), and every time I communicate with him, I change my mind right after words. So, I thought I would see if anyone here was interested in buying it off me, so poor Trevor doesn't have to deal with my return. I will offer it for straight cost, which includes the 20% black Friday discount, and I will cover the PP fees and the shipping. I will sell the cable, and the adapters together or separately. PM me for specific costs if you are (actually) interested. These are pictures of the actual cable.
4ft is extremely short :xf_eek:

However, here is your chance to skip the waiting game guys^^

It might be short, but it's really thick.

And these are some adapters and an extension cable. The adapters really increase the value proposition of good cables.

I've been considering investing in a cable from Norne for my Aryas. Was curious to hear from Norne owners that have owned copper and silver + copper hybrids. Copper is typically recommended for Aryas since they can be on the bright side. I'm considering the copper Draug 3 or the beefier Drausk, but am very curious about a hybrid option.

I always used the Draug lineup with my HD800, in all of its iterations as well. The Draug adds a degree of warmth, improved timbre (this was the critical improvement for my taste), and added flesh to the images on the stage/studio.

Perfect match for my bronze Empyrean

The Vykari making itself at home. The Vykari is sonically and visually outstanding. Trevor G at Norne has immense craftsmanship and is very responsive: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1847BED6-7E6B-4524-9F8A-D9D4CB4E4054.jpeg
Nice setup! What is your black-colored headphone amp? Is it another Woo Audio but with different tubes in place?

Enjoy the Vykari!
