Thanks for your responses! I've actually had Radio Shack cables for years--that's what I am replacing. To be honest, I have one major problem with them: they grip the inputs way too tight and changing out equipment has almost damaged items more than once over the years.
Not good. I honestly can't speak to their sound as I've never really A/B-ed them, but the potential for damage alone makes me want to finally move one. I've also used Acoustic Research, but a couple actually failed and they are overly grippy as well (this is probably linked).
I'll check out the Mogamis and Morrow Audios.
Sorry EBM, I don't really understand your reply. Could you elaborate?
BTW, note to moderators: for some reason when I posted this topic it posted three times. It might be something I did, I don't know. If at all possible could these be merged? I feel like I am cluttering the board.
so these grey market cables are being taken out of the back of the factory in china, or a container headed for the U.S.? I did notice that the package did not have a UPC code. But would a counterfeiter go through the trouble of duplicating the inside and outside packaging? Doesnt it cost a lot for the molds for the plastic innards of the package and for printing the exterior for what presumably is a low volume product. My bet is that these have been diverted from the regular channels of distribution. K2s are being sold for $400 instead of $10k here in the U.S. Is that really possible?

I suspect you already know the answer to that.
Morrow, Signal and Clear Day all make reasonably priced high quality cable and you are buying a handmade product direct from the manufacturer. All great guys selling great products.
