RE: Cardas wire manufactured in china???

I'm not even sure what's listed is counterfeit. Misleading though, to be sure. The length isn't mentioned in the ad that Used Hi-Fi linked, only a picture that shows a 100 foot spool. But if you look at the same seller's other ads for different gauges of the Cardas wire, those listings are for a 1 meter length. And at that length, their prices are more than 2X what you can buy it for from a US vendor like Sonic Craft (and almost 3X if you add in the shipping). I guess they could be selling a counterfeit for 2X the price and really laughing their butts off. :)

To Used-Hifi, sorry I can't help with your question of where the wire is made as I have no idea where it comes from. But even if it is made in China, there's nothing necessarily wrong with that...there are good quality goods that come out of China, just hard to separate the good from the bad at times.
