sigh... fixed cables are a big no-no for me.... especially when you have itchy fingers like mine Grin Grin Grin Grin uncle ridgzin knows what i'm talking about. plus i do enjoy the versatility of detachable cables and the ability to mix and match sound signatures, so perhaps, detachable cables arent such a bad thing after all Tongue Grin Grin Grin
i've always wondered how strong silicon is though, prone to breakage and rub damage?

Nice write up Roady!

Tried Kidult's caps and ICs recently...

Still on the fence about the caps though. especially considering the performance vs size. Also since they didn't do anything for me in particular.

But for the ICs, I must say they are realllly good. However they aren't Ultimate Link prototypes... More like... personal prototypes...  Cheesy

I personally own a set of Ety ER-4S with Westone custom but didn't went for the APS cable change, IMO that should be the ER4S in its 90-95% performance, based on that, the ACS's soundstage is wider than the 2 above mentioned. (without UL new cable and sonicaps)

The 11pro benefit more from the sonicaps than the T1 in terms of soundstage since the T1 is already very wide and improve the treble performance on the 11pro.

I know.... I'm a rough user like you, broke 2 sets of UM2 with UM56 in a month. The T1 silicon feel very strong though, there's a sample you can feel at stereo.

I tested 11Pro on my orchestra music and find that it's true that it has better soundstage than any other customs and never had a chance to try on T1,so i can't judge how does it sound.
But as far as i know,there are a lot of different spec and performance customs in terms of soundstange,bass,treble or noise isolation in the market nowadays so in the end,it depends on yourself to judge which is the best customs to invest in. Wink

IMO, the APS cable do improve the ER4s by quite a lot, day and night?, as i personally never really like the er4s with stock cable until i got the APS cable. it gives more height to the soundstage, making it wider. Bass response was much better and the highs are not harsh compared to the stock cable.

Maybe we could meet up someday and you could try it with your custom mold since you own them too.

I don't think I need to try the ER-4S/APS.

I'm a believer of quality cables but every speaker/drivers has its own limitations, saying that I've paid a small fortune on digital coaxial alone just for my Wadia transport recently and I can't say I've gain more than 10% of overall performance so good for you dark kopi.
