As long as people are dumb enough to think they make a difference they will be sold. Just another example of the stupidity tax that audiophiles love to pay. As far as Im concerned there all fake.
Blackgates never did deserve the reputation they had anyway. Highest failure rate I've ever seen (doesn't matter which line), they were always bigger physically, (so amateurs made a mess installing), and cost to performance was terrible.Even a NOS genuine part has now been storage for decades, so very dubious quality
++1I don't want to have to wonder and ask around if parts are "good" or "real".
