Thanks maquire. My CIEMs only need sligh improvement in clarity and they need bigger, more distant soundstage. They have full bodied bass and would prefer not to make it faster but I would also prefer not to make it boomy; small subbas lift would be appreciated.

 
Sounds like a job for the Virus.

I'm a Virus freak so I am gonna say Virus. I actually have both those headphones. The Primes are running on Virus and sound great. The LCD-X is actually running Norne Arcane (which is a hybrid like Virus) and it sounds great.

congrats on the new cables.
Can you tell me how long your playing them.
And what are the biggest changes?

thanks

I will answer these questions as soon as I can get a review done. I'm finishing a headphone shootout on some mass consumer products then I need to finish a review of the V281 with a bunch of high end headphones.

Alright I thought you guys might be a bit on a hypetrain about Toxic cables, you know like everybody supports their own gear. But I just got my Silver Widow (the old one) and I've gotta say this is by far the best cable I've had yet. Everything sounds exactly right. More detail and a widened soundstage without sounding overly bright (or warm), just neutral in a very coherent and mature way. I can understand why everyone is so lyrical :)
