RE: EIZZ Platinum XLR Connector

Are these Xhadow XLR bootlegs? I know you like the sound of the EIZZ XLR Connectors but have you noticed any difference in sound from different suppliers?

I did buy some Xhadow XLR connenctors (very similar looking) and you are correct about cable ends making a difference. These launched some average 7 conductor 26 gauge silver wire in Teflon interconnects into another sonic universe.

Much deeper sound stage and greater differentiation between vocals and instrumentalist. I could finally understand all the words Ian Anderson was singing in Bursting out.

Maybe one day I will try these EIZZ to see if they match the performance of the Xhadow.

My experience when buying pretty audio parts on EBAY or other over seas markets has not been very good. I fell for some shiny Rhodium Speaker terminals on EBAY. In the description they indicated the base metal was copper. These "copper" terminals wound up sticking to the bucking magnet on my speaker making me doubt the base metal. I now doubt that the silver finish is Rhodium. More than likely its Chrome. They are still very pretty, but I don't want waste my time hooking them up. What does a Chrome speaker terminal sound like?
