Ping - PingPing and bcowen

Thank you both for your constructive comments.

bcowen provided a link to Sonic Quest, a company that offers the identical plug to the US market at a similar price to Gear City who offer it in UK - and probably Europe too.

Do we know anything of Sonic Quest? I'd like to know if they are US-based because if so, they are presumably operating under US trading, copyright and fraud laws. In view of the fact that SQ state that this plug is manufactured by Oyaide. I presume that's probably true - if they are US based. If they operate from outside the US, then I agree one has to be wary.

Has anyone here actually bought these plugs (my original question) and if so, do they agree with me that they are well made and seemingly as specified?

People such as Duster and 3+4=5 have jumped to unsubstantiated assumptions and have followed up by unwarranted rudeness to me for challenging their ignorance of this particular product. If they've never bought or used the plug, then they should have kept their prejudicial feelings to themselves and read comments by any respondents who HAVE bought and used them, rather than accusing me for being naive. I was in the trade side of this industry for several years and I know what sort of mischief the trade gets up to - particularly when it comes to profit margins on accessories such as cables and plugs.

Once they started with their ranting nonsense, I admit that I've wound them up a bit more by questioning their claimed "knowledge" (call me a troll if you wish) but they frankly deserve it. My replies to intelligent responses have, I think been polite and appreciative. I'd still like to get the question of SQ's county of operation answered and to speak with someone who has also bought and use these "sensibly priced" plugs.
