TWL Obsession vs Silver Statement
« on: January 11, 2019, 07:03:32 AM »
I'm considering these two cables and not quite sure the differences between them other than the NCF connectors. Is that accurate or are there other differences? Thanks!

Hey Jim,
Yes, both "Silver Statement" and "Obsession NCF" build topologies are the same except for the connectors utilized.

The "Silver Statement" utilizes the solid silver (99.99% OCC Pure Silver) IeGO inner connector (8095CT-Ag) mated to my custom, CNC-machined aluminum & carbon fiber outer connector body.



The "Obsession NCF" utilizes the very expensive Furutech FI-50 NCF series of connectors. See http://www.furutech.com/2015/11/18/12059/. They are $385 EACH for both NEMA-5 & C13 IEC connectors! Hence, the price difference between the two cables...



Cheers,
Pete

Charles, do you use both of them or prefer one over the other?

   What is better in my system may not be the same in yours. Just try them. Decware love all silver, hint, hint.
