Congrats. Very sexy looking cables indeed.
I agree, Frank really outdid himself.
Now be prepared to be intoxicated.

The braiding on those cables are outstanding. So aesthetically pleasing. I'm in the hunt for an upgrade for my HD 800's cable wise. Been looking around and researching for about 2 months now. The Moon audio v2 black dragon and toxic cable's Copper Venom are a few of my favourites so far. Tempted to buy. :wink:

Well,  I normally do not react to these type of discussions. But that cable of yours was impossible to avoid. You have mentioned it so many times, in so many different posts, that ultimately I just had to see it ‘for real’.
 
And, I have to admit, it looks gorgeous. I have the impression that you expected the cable to be black. Indeed black would be a safe option, but I think you should appreciate Frank’s nerves to make it ‘ruby red’. I have checked your equipment once again (another thing that was impossible to ignore or avoid), and I have to say, it will match well. Black, red and blue fit well together. If the cable was black, it would be an accessoire, now it becomes a component. Same applies to the feet you use under the equipment. They are so completely different from what seems to be the norm, that they become or at least look like a component as well.
 
All together, I like it. The main elements (amp and headphone) are understated, no excessive ‘bling-bling’ here. The ‘so-called accesoires’ (equipment feet and headphone cable) give it a bit of an edge. They stand out, and so does the quality of their making.  In total it also improves  the total quality look of your complete system. That is a style I like…..
Hence, you should be lucky with Frank’s risky color choice, it is a very nice ‘red’.
Enjoy!

thanks for the nice words guys..but the credits goes completely to frank...as always i gave him carte blanche to do what he can to make it as good as possible..i only had one basic demand: at least as good as my custom BW that i have now :D
for the rest..i told him: go bezerk..and this is what came out..a bold move of frank goin for red..but he knows me a bit now as a loyal customer..i dont go the standard way... :D

@playitloud wow...thanks my friend..never ever read such a nice description about my rig..and ur so right..i on purpose wanted the amp to be simple and classy black and my code-x is only one of the ever built original 20 who has black finished wood (others are brown) ..very simple and classy also

...and yep..on purpose i bought the stainless feet to make it more sexy..but my basic and most important reason to buy every one of my components: they are components made to deliver the best possible performance for their money and are innovative.

And they do...if u check my rack u will see that the top level is springmounted ..now thats smart thinkin..its a simple, cost friendly and effective solution for vibration control...right?? Feet also have some nifty piston smart stuff inside them (they are weight dependable)i like that..stuff u wont expect to be designed not only to be nice looking but actually have a technical reason behind it.

But once again..thanks guys for the nice words..next monday i hope to have the Venom on my doorstep...am really curious how this cable will look like, connected to my rig in the dark...only lighted by the blue led lights of my amp:) and especially how much better it will be then the already very very good custom BC frank cooked me already

I will take a pic of that.. :D

I've always thought these audio quest king cobras of mine had a beautiful red colour, but Frank's cable (ruby red) puts it to shame. ^
Wonderful stuff. :wink:

  What is the current wait time for a Silver Widow IEM cable?
 
Thanks

 
Email or PM Frank for a quicker response. He's incredibly busy and pops in here every now and again, but he'll probably see your message quicker via direct contact.
 
In general the wait time is a little faster for IEM cables. You won't regret that wait time though. The silver widow IEM cable is absolutely fantastic :D
