Eichmann Bullets

12 posts in this topic

I've never had any trouble with the metal bodied versions breaking, and have 10 of them on cables in my system. I have never done an A/B of these between identical cables though so commenting on their sonic properties is tricky. I did re-terminate one cable with them to good effect, but that was partly as the old RCAs had shorter than average signal pins and made an intermittent contact so I can't really conclude too much from that.

On the WBT front it's perhaps informative to note that their most expensive plugs, the Nextgen ones, are effectively Bullet clones, at a significantly higher price.

For info. the cheapest place I know for Bullets is http://www.the-missing-link.net/

To be honest I have plastic bodies silver ones on a digital interconnect and they've been fine. I think they changed them at some point, the original ones broke easily but they toughened the design up a bit. i havent heard of any problems with them in the last year or so.

Do they make a positive difference, and if so why is less more?

Less is more. Yep, someone explained it to me once but I'm forgotten that detail, main point seemed to be that the excess metal in normal plugs creates timing issues and makes the bass less defined.

Actually now I think about it I have two plastic bodied ones on a digital lead too, although someone else did the soldering in that case.

Same here, perhaps we got them from the same person? I think it was someone on ZeroGain

They're okay IME until you need to re-solder then it gets a wee bit tricky. TBH I cant tell any difference between them and some decent locking types Ive found(which also have much more bling factor :D). If your making your own cables why not experiment with no connectors (I must take my own advice here). People have do this by using 'o' rings to keep things in place. I'll try and find an example.

One set of silver Eichmanns of mine have gold coloured bodies, which I suppose are a bit more 'bling' but frankly I still don't think they look too great :Not Sure:.
