You're right; I've had chronic problems with an Alpine car tape deck which made me kinda not buy their products for a while (even thought they make good stuff).
Problem is, I've owned enough Pioneer gear to say that they have not let me down (nor read about problems about them a whole lot here); fact is, the guy bought Monster amps (failed), bought some more, and they failed as well.
try again and again until the skill is mastered
Even with the cheap crimpers, I had a technique; one set to strip, one set to crimp, and one set to cut (this was back in the day of course). I have nicer tools now...
if other cables will not break how are you going to cut them into different lengths?
I'm talking about the strands; it's a pet-peeve when even just one strand breaks off.
they havent done that yet does not mean they wont do it in the future
I highly doubt Pioneer will sue to control it's common word...
nobody is mentioning ebay. there are b&m shops and different internet sites selling fake cables too somewhere in this world albeit limited to america
I don't buy from eBay; I don't buy from most (if not all) of those internet sites.
To me, it's all the same...
Do you have the names of the fake products???
...I will definately keep my eyes open on that.
