The other day I was bored, so I made up a mini-jack to stereo BNC connector. I connected my phone (Samsung Galaxy S10) to my Blaxius^2 cables, pressed play, and... was completely blown away by the sound. The deepest bass, the clearest mids and the most pristine highs I've ever heard.

No more XX or NOS1 for me. It's the phone all the way now.

Interesting, I have similar experience with LG V30 phone. Silky highs like, I don't know how to describe, like Thai silk? No more two PC's and tablet plus. Simple and elegant solution.

George, you're probably doing this already, but make sure you set your phone to 'flight mode'  Happy

Really fantastic idea. After unplugging the iphone, all interference from cables or ground wires was completely eliminated, background is very, very black.

Thanks !

Fantastic I had a similar experience except that I connected my Android phone with 2  lengths of wet string (+ve and -ve). I can honestly say it was the most amazing sound quality I have ever experienced.

Scroobius,

Too bad you didn't Blaxius  your wet strings.  Try multiple layers of aluminium foil separated by plastic wrap with the wet string suspended in cardboard tubing.

cardboard tubing.

You mean the inner of a toilet roll, right ? my English is not the best, but I think you refer to the toilet roll.

Yea, I tried that. But after a while the resonation went wild.
Then I folded a cold gas thruster around it. This now works well for 3 days continuously. But only at 4G. 3G didn't start and 5G doesn't run reliably.
