fake siltech cables.

17 posts in this topic

seems to be a thriving trade in siltech cables and so doubt others.

buyer beware

from the siltech website

"Second hand Siltech is a great way to save money without losing quality. But take care. Because of the high demand and very high prices for second hand Siltech some unreliable factories started producing lookalikes with full printing of our name and type. This is totally illegal. In general do not buy from non-dealers unless it is a sincere customer upgrading or changing his or her system. In 2004 70-90% of second hand Siltech products offered through Ebay and Audiogon were fake "

For buyers of used, second-hand Siltech cables: We received many complaints from Ebay buyers not receiving their money back after discovering they received imitation product. Ebay unfortunately cannot control the origin of contents of sellers. Most Siltech cables we tracked over the last 3 years turned out to be fake (imitation) We tried to stop volume imitation sellers like currygipson under the Ebay-Store named Acoustic Audiophile reported to be in Hong Kong. Unfortunately many victims already lost their money and maybe will never get their money returned

We suggest to be very careful buying from volume sellers not having original bills or original packaging from Siltech.

Also if they carry many of the same models it is usually suspicious. Most imitation cables are produced in China , middleman sell to these so called powersellers with high positive ratings. Many customers reported not getting their money back, but are counterattacked and for whatever reason removed from negative ratings. About 90% of the so called Siltech cables sold through various power sellers on Ebay worldwide are imitation products, fully printed with our logo, name, typename and even made-in-holland. Please understand that due to the high volume of counterfeit products, Siltech cannot prevent all items being sold.

does that answer the question?

actually i regularly watch the central audio website and i know you often have siltech stuff and there are some very tasty speaker cables on now but i wondered how you would be able to spot a fake which according to siltech there must be otherwise why say it?
