    You’d be better off buying a quality ofc copper. Those aren’t legit in any way.

    China nuff said they counterfeit their own counterfeit products. be very careful. You could get tin plated junk copper, how would you ever know?

    OCC silver is expensive because of not only the material, but also the forging process and there is no way around that. Either they aren’t using any or they’re using such trace amounts of it that it’s illegitimate.

    I’d advise anyone to avoid buying any cables direct from unknown companies like this. There is no way to know the purity of the conductor without destroying the product. This is one area that you can be assured will be quality from any reputable cable manufacturer.

    Well I'm still needing a 1 m long set With male XLR x RCA. My B&K Ref pre has been acting up so I sent it to Goodwill. I guess I could send my silver eclipses back to Wirewold for retermination. That would be cheaper and faster than sending my amps in for rebuild

    Or buy balanced to RCA adapter?

    The interconnects appear to be shielded but it is not clear which end of the shield is grounded. Every shielded cable needs to have an arrow.

    You want to have the shielded end attached to ground on the component side that is doing the output. The other side should not be attached to the shields outer wrap.

    Ya, I looked at those but I would need a male XLR to male RCA adapter which they don't make and I'm trying to minimize extra crap in the signal path so...
