The lovely BW for the Final Audio Sonorous X has arrived! The connectors fit beautifully: the Final Audio series of cans use their own connectors which come with a spoke out on each side and so can be quite tricky because they insert quite deep. Frank bought a lot of connectors from Final Audio just so he could make these.

Thanks, Frank! Excellent work and superlative effort once again! :)

Frank also made lovely adapters so that u can use my cables with mini XLR with my Sonorous X. It was tricky because the circumference for the Final Audio is slimmer than the mini XLR... But Frank still managed to pull it off! :)

I have had good success with the Silver Widow 22ga and the HD800's.

kiats keep buying cables xD

damn too many page to read...
considering to get either sw22 or hydra for my roxanne :rolleyes:


Huh? Uh... Ok. :wink:

As for the choice between the 2: it all depends on your needs and usage: the Hydra has more note weight while the SW22 is no lightweight sonically either. Agree with maguire: you can't go wrong with either. :)

My friend U forgot to say that the weight and power and dynamics in the note increases if you get a balanced version of the sw22 with good xlr connectors..or go my road..get two seperate cables for left and right channel..just like you and i have..it will blow your socks off if you have a good rig :wink:

Just wondering if there was an update on when the Hydra will be online on your website so I can add a review for the competition? (A glowing one ofc :p)
Now I am more used to its stiffness it really is a fantastic cable!
