I have come across to fake copies of interconnect Van Den Hul D102 MkIII. They are easy to purchase on various Ebay websites.Most of the people who offer these products are living in (the vicinity of) Hong Kong. The products are always offered without the original box and are mostly packed in a black bag with our copied logo on it. The inside of the cable is of very low quality and quite often completely different from the original. Buying such a cable is at your own risk and basically illegal. Please also be aware that an offer that is too good to be true most of the time is exactly that: too good to be true.
Few pictures of it. As you can see plugs are ridiculous el-cheapo cheapest as chip from REAN – Neutrik’s cheap brand. They don’t even manufacture them anymore. Print is coming down when rubbed with thumb. Someone would cry looking at pig-like soldering and all that fake feeling underlining stickers with directional arrows. It seems to be balanced microphone cable, kinda like one from Klotz company.
Of course not everything from Hong Kong is bad, but please be aware and rather support your local dealer.
