Interconnect cables

I recently bought a pair of counterfeit XLO rac Signature 3 S3-1 interconnect cable from ebay. Although these cables work as normal, I wish to know if anybody has experience as to what is the percentage of sonic performance compares to the genuine xlo signature 3 interconnect cables?

Best regards to all members.

You bought them and apparently installed/use them.
Are you unhappy?
What is the question or problem?

If you had a concern... why did you buy "counterfeit" cables?

100%. Guaranteed.

At the time I bought, I did not know they were counterfeit interconnect cables. After I received
the cable, I found out there was not hologram sticker on the cable. Therefore, I consider that
these cables were counterfeit ones.

Is there a problem with the cables?
Do you think you may hear a degradation of sonic performance?

If there is an issue, try these:

Off topic: Ratman, your AVITAR is hilarious! Every time I scroll by it, it causes me to pause and smile. I'm thinking about using a similar one as my AVITAR - is that cool with you?

Go for it. Google search "gurn".

While you may have been defrauded, at least it won't have any effect on the sound of your system.
