Default Plese help. 'Krell' branded cables found online.

Hello readers, can someone please guide me as to stuff which is legit or not and whether one should stay away from purchasing things on ebay aliexpress etc which carry big brand names (Krell Cryo-156 power cables in this case).
They seem pretty legitimate to me with good reviews and all, but I could not find mention of the same on Krell website.
p.s. this is not aimed at starting a debate of any sort, just wanting some direction buying legitimate items. Thanks.

There are not many cable manufacturers to be found. Most cables are made by the manufacturer and re branded allowing the price to increase multiple times for no good reason.
If you purchase your cable from RS, Farnell Element13, Mouser etc, you cannot go far wrong and you will not get ripped off.
If you are a metallurgist, you will know that copper is copper and freezing it or heating it does not 'improve' it conducting qualities. Exactly the same as purchasing 'Cryogenic" valves. It is meaningless!
https://uk.rs-online.com/web/c/cable...le-core-cable/ has a good selection of brand names that the equipment manufacturers and professional wiremen use, similar can be found elsewhere.

is where you get well and truly taken for a mug.
Hope that helps.

They seem like obvious fakes.
