  • Am considering getting a used pair of Crystal Cable ic. Is it safe to buy used? Not sure if there are fakes in the market. If there are, how to tell?

    Crystal Cable App is a tool for authenticating

  • I think the newer models are safer. The ex oem factory in Taiwan even sold crystal and siltech cables undertable. (they are authentic though)
    Best is to bring the cable to agent for verification.  I think its a service they should provide since they are local agent.

  • Which agents would help you to verify your Crystal products?

    You didn't buy from him, why should he help so that you can continue not to buy from him?

    I do not believe Crystal cables (Siltech as well) are made anywhere other than Holland.  With 5-digit price tags, it makes no sense to use foreign labor or use production line and let go your trade secrets.

  • I think this is a role a responsible local distributor should play, even though we do not buy from them. I see this as an effort to protect the good name of the brand they carry.

    Do not think its the case now but quite many years ago, it was made by oem in tw. Quite many pieces came into sg market from tw direct. Mainly siltech

  • Now I think if pure silver cables is thick enough, it actually sounded 'warmer' and smoother. I'm comparing 12awg, 9awg and 7awg pure silver power cord.  Also thick Vs thinner (don't know the awg) pure silver speakers cables. All are monocrystal type. The thicker it go, as expected sound weightier, however it also become smoother, and strange to say for silver, warmer.

    I love these silver cables. Now using full set of silver, IC, PC, spk cables everything except the network cable. Whenever I swapped out any of the pure silver cables to silver plated type. Silver plated are sharper sounding, lack the smoothness, but seem to gain some definition. Like the sharpening effect of photo.
