Has anyone tried a Toxic Cables silver cable and also a Norne / Lavricables / Forza Audioworks cable and can compare their sound quality? Any comparison between the sound quality of these cables would be really helpful. I've been considering buying a Toxic Cables silver cable and trying to choose between these options.

The only silver cable I own is https://www.cosmic-cables.co.uk/product-page/mercury-pure-silver, it is very well made and the sq is amazing in terms of both depth and detail, I think they also do an iem version, I don't
think Forza do a pure silver and although I have the Draug 3 from Norne it's difficult to compare as it's cu and to my ears the Silver sounds quote a bit cleaner.

Thank you. I think I'll go with a silver cable too.

Pretty sure you can. I placed mine a few weeks ago after asking some questions via email and Matt was very helpful and quick to respond :)

A 14 week wait, why so long, it takes 3 days to make a cable

Because for one they're not making just one cable.
And two, A quality product isn't rushed.

Thanks to Eddie's help and Matt's work, I ordered SW22v2 at the beginning of October, and received the cable around mid of December. In the meantime, I have purchased a GSP4 from a local dealer.

These Toxic Cables are really really impressive.

SW22v2 is very much dynamic, full of strength, plenty of details, wider sound stage than average, and also smooth vocal. I must say it's might probably be the cable with the very best cost-performance ratio within USD1500. I would expect the Medusa17 to be better, but maybe not 2 more times better, given diminishing margin effect.

GSP4, as Eddie commented, is very much refined in the mids, warm while full of emotion and details. It might be a perfect fit for Spiral Ear 5-way Ultimate CIEM, obvious improvement on live recording of airy atmosphere.

Now I still have an order of BW22 on the way. Expecting if the BW22 could bring some more excitement.
