one more point i noted with my faulty cable.

When i listen to any song, the faulty seem to become softer, other than become softer, the bass didnt seem to be present, as compared to the other other working side. It can range from very little (almost none) bass to probably nothing. So i was afriad its also the low-frequency driver dying, i dun think so "zhun" right?

That was also one of my choice, due to tight budget. Lune also cost 2.xx times more. However im thinking since im changing i might as well get something of a reasonable quality and SQ, this is where the lune tempts me



Actually im using the Cowon J3 with my tf10. after tweaking the EQ, i find it acceptable. But when i connect it to the 3.5mm jack on my altec lansing computer speakers, it sounds great. Bass, mids, highs are all great (ok theres a bass and treble slider on the speaker which i do tune though). I was assuming there is a mini-amp (or something similar) powering/driving it thats why everything is so clear and forward. Im no audiophile too just wanna hear whats supposed to be in the song.

I also do have something similar to a amp, but its a A/D interface and the sound sounds as good as it is on the altec speakers.

So actually based on my test, the bass and highs are actually there but not brought out through the cowon. And since it is silver cable, sound at all frequencies should require less power to "drive" and thus making it more obvious isnt it? Or my concept is wrong haha

Just for discussions

Interesting. Anyway to your last point, hope someone who knows the more technical aspect of custom cables could reply this as I'm ain't sure either, but interested to know.

I've checked with Kevin Wang from null audio regarding the sleeving. He replied to say that he can do it with an additional $15, only in B/W currently. He sells it originally without any sleeve on.

I choose Treoo because it was slightly cheaper after i used their discount coupon. Give it 1+week for delivery. I don't think you can go to any shop to get it.

Barely a month and a half my lune's neutrik plug had started giving me a problem. Sound can't be transmitted fully, and I've got to keep adjusting the connector. Plugged into 3 diff devices to confirm the fault. Will be handing the cable over to null audio to get it fix.

I thought neutrik plug is one of the sturdiest plug available. I used the lune cable for quite a while before I sold it away and I didn't have any problem with it. But then again, I'm using the viablue plug, so can't really say much

Hey guys, I just got my tf10. Lune cable will bring down the bass?

If I want improvement in bass + retain the mid and highs of the tf10, can the arete do it?

Does arete comes with the nylon sleeving?

Heard viablue is more reliable though. The neutrik is sturdy but i think the coil inside may have given way. i planning to head down to null next wk to give it a check.
