The "what audio equipment did you buy/get today" thread [56k warning!!] - Page 252

post #2511 of 3150
lolz at the interconnects, im wondering if anyone actually bought them. im using belden 1505f to lok rca ends, maybe $25 a cable and thats crazy for some.
post #2512 of 3150
which ones? The ones Schiit sells? They only sell those because they're short and for the price, kinda hard to beat since no one seems to make decent cables that short. Jason will tell you flat out all the cabling they use at Schiit are monoprice, he doesn't believe in the whole "expensive cable experience"

In any case, you can get PYST, or you can save some money at Monoprice.

The PYST cables they sell are all from Straight Wire. You can make out parts of the name in the product photos on their site.

They are HiFiMAN HE-560's. I listened to the LCD 2's on a cold Oppo HA-1, I wasn't impressed, I should have gone back once the amp had warmed up but they were £150 out of my budget at £800 odd and I'd already fallen for the HE-560's.

Did you check out the new Audeze EL-8? Supposedly they are the new kid on the block. I haven't had a chance to audition a pair though. wink.gif

I wish Audeze would do something a bit more affordable for those of us who don't have any more spare limbs to donate to science......I do have two testicles I'm not going to use though....hmmm
