A few comments from customers, all good and the customers knew nothing about any technical details of the construction or the connectors, just tried it and listened.

The cable performed much better than the Interconnects I had been using.

Your cable has bags of detail, Supple bass and great depth and dimension to music.

The sound with the new cable has better timing, greater bass definition and all instruments have a greater space between them.

Daft question, but does this also replace the G1500HD range?

Hello Gareth,

yes it does, no need for the G1500HD with Neutrik Profi. This connector is excellent and costs less.

I can fit WBT 0110 AG if anyone requires them, costs a lot more though.

A new delivery of connectors arrived last week so plenty available again after a bit of a delay due to a connector shortage, I used all that where available and the lead time from the connector manufacturer is long.

I can confirm that the HDX1 is a superb sounding cable. I have a set myself.

The connectors are superb too. Excellent quality.

Sounds a very reasonable price compared to the majority of rip off overpriced cables out there.

Looks like a great product, Mark. Love the plugs! Are they a non-metallic construction? Anyway, you should do very well with these cables :)

The connectors have a plastic front part that holds the contacts and an aluminium body/ barrel to cover the soldered part of the contacts.

The centre pin is hollow similar to the design of the popular variations of 'bullet' connectors.

The ground connection is a full circular metal contact with high contact area and low resistance rather than the miniature point of contact of the 'bullet' design of connectors. The connection area inside the connector is also large so that plenty of screening from the cable can be connected.
The circular ground contact has a gap in the circular design to help with low capacitance.

I have also listed these on ebay for people that prefer to buy on ebay and there are shipping options for everywhere on ebay.

They are proving popular and customer feedback has been great :)

I also bought two pairs of the HDX1 actually, to connect my Croft Micro25R with my Croft Series7R mono blocks and also my CD player with the preamp. The first impressions are very positive, although I am still burning in the cables.

The downside is that -given the higher levels of details with the new cables- I have to repeat my 12BH7A valve comparisons... RCS vs Tung-Sol vs Sylvania vs Westinghouse, etc., etc. Quite fun though, I should not complain -))

I have a 1.5 metre pair of these excellent cables. They are used with my Oppo Blu-Ray player and are really top notch.

Looking forward to receiving and try out the HDX1, hopefully Monday, I have the original GHD1000, a nice little upgrade?

I now have two pairs of these HDX1 cables and they are superb, top to bottom coherence with a very fine treble in comparison to my other cables, Cambridge Azur reference and Classique sounds of Leicester Translucent, which sounds a bit dry and coarse in comparison.

I really like the new plugs.

Incredible value for money.

I love Mark's cables. Bloody good value for money, sound great and Mark is a top geezer to deal with.

Now have a third set, superb interconnect for the money, outstanding.

Marco

Yup, me too. I'd now use nothing else, plus he's a TOP bloke to deal with!:)

Like you say, Chris, the plugs are superb and for me deserve special mention. Low-mass and constructed from quality materials, which really compliment the high gauge solid-copper cable itself, for me that's what's cheered things up most and now makes the HDX1s true 'giant killers', offering superb SPPV.

I quite agree, no competition at anything like this price, could not be any happier with these.

I decided to re-visit the earlier version i have of this cable, the one with WBT's fitted, and i have to say, i'd forgotten how good a cable it is/was, so after speaking with Mark, i have decided to go for a few sets of this new version, i will put up my findings once i have fitted them, and given them a bit of time to settle in.:)

Nice one, mate. Look forward to hearing your thoughts...

What I find is that they just 'disappear', allowing the music itself to be showcased, as they have no overt 'sound' of their own, unlike in my experience many so-called 'high-end' designs, which you can hear as soon as you plug them in...

For me, the effect of the best cables, in a well sorted system, should be subtler and less obvious, simply allowing music to 'breathe', without imparting a false superimposed 'signature' - and to my ears *that* is exactly how the HDX1s behave.

At the end of the day, you don't want cables acting as a glorified tone control, but simply allowing the sound of the partnering components (and music) to flow naturally, and then sit back and forget about them!:cool:
