Actually even when Jim Wang owned the company all the wire was supplied by neo tech in Taiwan to his specifications there's only three manufacturers of OCC single crystal wire, two are in Japan, the other in Taiwan which is neo tech but their parent company which actually manufactures the wire is a different name. The name of the manufacturer is Wan Lun.
You didn’t give further explanation as to what happened to the cable other than "the insulation of one of the ground wire had become broken."
Sounds like you broke it. You can’t expect a company to fix an old piece of equipment (or cable in this case) - that did not occur as a result of the manufacturing or workmanship. ESPECIALLY these days where company ownership changes hands over the years. We get it that you expected immediate (and probably free) repair or replacement - many years after manufacture and/or purchase. Stop whining and trying to badmouth the company name. If you are so butt hurt about it, then don’t buy any of the new company’s products. You can replace it with a purchase of the same cable from TMR audio now available for $300. It's not like it's $30,000. Suck it up buttercup - and look at it as an opportunity to buy a new cable.
The company is run now by Jim Wang's niece and I believe the quality has gone down the connectors on is good they're using neotech connectors instead of foretech and they don't even put a woven jacket on the outside anymore like they used to. Acoustic Zen still makes all our cables in California and it's run by the former partner of Jim Wang who used to design all the cables. Just as good or better as harmonic tech and cheaper.
