A: Y-R, B: W-Y & R-G
This emphasizes even more what the previous config attempted, because W and R are now floating, are thus not interconnected and will have their own life, still extended by R and G respectively.

Loud in the Mid (not the highs)
Highs have no color at all (but is special somehow).
Not sufficiently “interesting”.


Yes, odd. Just not "interesting". I heart this from note one. Don't ask me about the why.

PS: I thought to flag "rejected" configs red.

A: W-Y & R-G, B: B-Y-R
Notice that this is the “opposite” of the good sounding A:B-Y-R, B: W-Y & R-G.

Great stuff !! Sound is similar to that “opposite”, but I’d say better again. Even more I need to hold back from turning up the volume.
I’ve been walking around for 3 hours or so, all the time having this big smile on my face. I have no additional particulars on this config, except for that urge to play louder again (which I did not give in to because it is really getting too crazy loud).


The above is my first impression, possibly without paying too much attention to "particulars" because I actually have found my Walhalla already in that mentioned "opposite". Still I was happier than the I think 3 days I played with that opposite. Part of it could be that there was nothing to pay attention to, or, that too much sucking into the music was going on that no space was left to think about "sounds".

Anyway this judgment could be premature (more listening to it tonight) but meanwhile people could try this one themselves without feeling sorry to change (I'm sure).

Listening to the Olafsson Bach album with the new configuration.  Glorious.  Not sure how to really compare this and the opposite other right now.  More after some additional listening.

Hello Tore,

You are of course correct, if we'd read from left to right. But since the last 3 pins are a different section of the connector, it is easier for me to start at the outside again. So I need to connect R to G in that section. Then I first use the "first pin" (which is the outermost) and connect R to that, and then the second pin and connect G to that.

Similarly you could have told that R should have been connected to pin 5 and G to pin 6 (leaving pin 7 blank).
But it is all the same ...

Another explanation would be :
This is indeed how I connect the wires (start at the outside). Now I listen to that for a day and someone asks me to make a picture of it. What shall I do ? Twist it around just for the picture with the chance it may sound different, and listen an other day first ?
nea
So just to be 100% sure, this is what I listen to, so I make a picture of that.

Best regards,
Peter

So I have been listening to this "opposite" configuration for a few hours now.  I think the bass is definitely bigger but the excitement of the other config seems to have vanished (at least to these old ears).  I am going to stick with it for a few days but I really had to fight to not change it back after only an hour.

Thank you John.

Meanwhile I have been listening to
A: B-W-G, B: B-W-G
for two days (starting Oct 9, 2020). I did not encounter any annoyances, probably less than the bespoke previous two (that one plus its opposite).

But then I was handed this one, from someone off-line :
A: W-Y-R-G, B: W-Y-R
and these were my initial remarks :

I think it is a WOW. Highs (cymbals) are the best with colors. Also a mighty interesting sound. So realistic.
Skins of drums … also a WOW. So soft, so nicely developed. So colorful.

This configuration seems to beat all for the lacking of distortion. And Yes, isn't this a new phenomenon : judging USB cables on their amount of distortion ...

The strange this is and remains that instead of being easily able to point out where the cable (a config of it) is good at, it now comes down to determining the least "distorting" config. And mind you, I think I said so from day-1. "Which config shows the least annoyance". I suppose this can be related to the enormous step forward compared to the Lush^2 and that we could be completely overwhelmed by al the novelties and this still ab-nor-mal extra detail and sounds now coming forward. I myself am just too flabbergasted to pick out what's the best, BUT I can detect small annoyances.

Can you guys please try this and give your feedback ?

Peter

Hi Peter

I have been "playing" with my Lush 3 and to cut a long story short his latest config (A: W-Y-R-G, B: W-Y-R) is by far the best here. Recently I have been listening to Bowie "Nothing Has Changed" which has some great music but sadly many of the tracks are marred by poor sound quality. This config makes a significant improvement by noticeably removing a layer of hash. On other better quality recordings of chamber music strings sound great with a much more natural quality to the sound. I'll be sticking with this config until (if) something better turns up.

Cheers

Paul

Hi there Paul,

Yesterday, thinking of you, I played a lot of the "UK" stuff we have been talking about in the past. Elvis Costello. Ian Dury / Blockheads. Iggy Pop. The latter not British of course, but I am referring to Punk.
I suppose you already tried it ? But anyway, I somehow felt that this suddenly all should come together, and it does ! Beautiful quality, even from Lust for Life.
So it's all this native "sound", like Punk now suddenly rendered so well !

Kind regards and thanks,
Peter

This configuration is the best so far.  The most balanced.

Last night I listened to Penguins by Lyle Lovett.  Check it out.  Snare pops plus horns and great bass.  This is one of my favorite test tracks.

I'll keep that one in mind for tonight (on I Love Everybody).
Thank you John.
