Neotech UP-OCC isn't fake, but that is not what "Albert Audio" is selling you. Ask the right people the right questions and you can easily find out.

Please sustain from patronizing!

I have wire bought from AA shop and I'm quite pleased with it. That only matters to me!

I regularly get some of his "Mundorf Silver/Gold" wire from him (genuine?) and even tho I haven't directly compared it to the wire from Germany Mundorf site (crazy prices!), it sounds just fine to me, and never had any problems with the supplier either.

I read the "Shady Lane" old linked article and would like to know more about what went on and if this is the same person involved, and so on - I don't like to see accusations just left hanging in the air with no references, or supporting information

The "silver wire" he is selling may sound good, but is not UP-OCC as advertized.
Wan lung does not supply UP-OCC without insulation according to Marisa Yu.
Bare wire offered as UP-OCC is not what it is claimed to be.

Actally I found the same picture used in the ebay shop on a company website selling sterling (925) silver. This may be a coincidence, however, since I sometimes borrow pictures from other websites myself.

That being said, I have bought parts from him, and never had a problem. When I canceled a large order, he promptly refunded my payment.

I had a test done on some of this as I'm close to the largest Assay Office in Europe (Birmingham Assay Office - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and it comes out at 99.93 silver purity. It can't be the UPOCC wire as described then, but it is Pure or Fine silver and should be better for audio than standard copper, and it is still cheaper than 999/pure/fine silver wire
