RE: Accuphase Chinese Power Cord - Does This Look Familiar?

Having just come back from reading upon the latest power cords discoveries on Head-Fi.org..., it seems many are finding the Odin cords are being bettered by said Accuphase 40th Anniversary | Valhalla 15 Core thingy | Monosaudio P902 cords.

And while I once again hate to shite on domestic designs, once again how many are in fact made here in the USA as opposed to being outsourced and dressed up?, once again I'm not the type like many of my Chinese buddies that go about opening up components for the sake of analyzing the passive components | thinking they can build said item better, which is why I've noticed in the past certain Americans companies weren't looking to ship their wares to certain Asian countries | as it's a known fact they're extremely good at reverse engineering most of this stuff.

Yet it strikes me as weird that the real NordOst Odin Gold line of cables were introduced at a Hong Kong Audio Show, as opposed to here | this tells me that the actual company realizes they've do in fact have a huge Asian following, the rest of the story on how said NeardOst Chinese makes came to be?. I can only speak for myself here..., but bases upon the domestically built cords I've owned between 2001-2022, I've to look at what's in my own system | can easily spot 4 Chinese designs, whereas those older American ( supposedly ) built IC's | USB | Speaker Cables have been sold.

Global exceptions at its best | call me unpatriotic at best | but the times are in fact a changing, but in truth it stated decades ago, so by me being the avid researcher I'm, don't hate me for choosing with my brain | heart | wallet in selecting items to which I clearly have come to love based upon listening above all else.

As the old adage goes " Don't shoot the messenger ". But in truth..., I do trust in my own abilities to know what I hear | judge things accordingly.

All one has to do as a reality check of sort is, ask themselves just how many domestically power cords do you see priced between $40-$60?. Therein lies the truth as it should be weighed.
