Nice setup! What is your black-colored headphone amp? Is it another Woo Audio but with different tubes in place?

Enjoy the Vykari!
The black one is a WA3. For the time being, the tubes are: GEC CV5008 and Siemens E88CC. The silver one is a WA6. The tubes there are RCA 5U4G and RCA 5692. The WA6 is 1st gen with the 6DE7 sockets. [I wanted to use 6SN7-type tubes with adapters.]

I have a bunch of Norne cables I bought 4+ years ago with textile sleeves and wood splitters in various colors, and they all cost between 200-400$. Out of curiosity I checked the website today and it seems like only the Silvergarde is now offered with textile sleeves, and it prices out close to a grand for similar configurations. Am I missing something or is this just the new reality?

Norne has more cables than those offered on the website.

The Vykari can also be ordered as sleeved cable, but is also a flagship.

Less than a year ago I bought a Skraug, which is a sleeved entry level fusion cable.

If you're interested in sleeved options, it's probably best to send him an email and ask about offers.

I use a Silvergarde S3 with my TC. Nice balanced sound. I find the stock 1266 a little V shaped. I still use both cables, just to change things up. Will post a picture when I get a chance.

I have just received my humble drausk from Trevor; straightaway, I can hear a significant difference compared to my stock ZMF cable. The bass is more pronounced with better detail and clarity when listening to the Verite Closed with the drausk. Trevor is a very gracious guy with god-level craftsmanship. It was well worth the wait for the drausk.

I have a Silvergarde S3 I am very happy with but admit I am a little jealous happy for you. Do you have any information about how it may improve upon S3 besides guage.?
In any case, that is one handsome cable, I would wear it around my neck with a tuxedo if I had anywhere formal to go. :penguin:

Unfortunately I don't know any Details about the differences to the S3 besides gauge.

Really curious how it feels when it is here.
4x19awg for an IEM is massive.

In my case there was a problem with the wood splitter, plus the already long wait times due to the black Friday sale, so I had to wait for about 3 months, which I don’t mind really, because the overall quality of the cable is great and Trevor is very kind with giving updates on the progress of the build.

Both are surprisingly flexible. More flexible than all my stock cables, which is incredible considering the massive size of both

Silvergarde for the Abyss, couldn't resist. My Corpse Cables are great for the price but I wanted something sexier, like my older Norne Audeze and Ether cables. Was able to get this quickly since somebody had cancelled a half-finished order that was exactly the specs I wanted. Got another cable for the Stellia in production.
