Well that is a can of worms i would like to get into, even though im not apart of Ted or Chris's business, but have dealt with BOTH sides of the equation..... and lets just say whenever i contacted chris for repair or help or work needed done, i was refered to Ted, EVERY time. eventually i cut chris out of the picture all together and went straight to Ted. i come to the conclusion that (before i knew the truth) ted was behind the cables and chris was just a mouth piece selling his name. the real person behind the company is or shall i say WAS ted. now i donno about that.
i think people are awakening to find that ''chris_himself'' is actually Ted's Headfood and thats why in MANY threads i read where people are looking for cables to be made names like toxic,whiplash,DHC,BTG_Audio Ect come up, while i dont hear many if any people saying chris himself.
Ted is extremely talented and brings to the table his custom skills like the purple heart wood enclosure that holds the female RSA adapter to Hirose using silver and gold cable, bringing to the table expotic woods and carvings for cinches, and overall bringing to the table, responses to questions,insight and knowledge......In My Opinion that cant be replaced. people arent just getting a cable when you buy from ted, but you are better a piece of his talent that goes into that cable.
