As a customer and through my reviewing I have worked several times with Eric Chong and always enjoyed my interactions with him. So when Eric recently decided to take a chance and co-found his own company, I stayed in touch with him to see what he would come up with. Because I know other people here on Head-fi are very curious about his new company too, Eric's a popular guy, I decided it would be okay for me to start this thread (something I usually don't do). The information below is quoted from the Eletech press release. And just to be clear, I am not affiliated with Eletech in any way.

If they sound even half as good as they look, we're in for a treat :D

I've been in touch with Eric previously both as a customer and a reviewer. He's a class act in terms of customer service, going above and beyond to make sure his customers are well taken care of. Hoping Eletech takes off in grand fashion.

Thank you for the support and encouragement you guys :)

I'm psyched to be back on the scene. Our team has toiled tirelessly to bring you more surprises and we're looking forward to catching up during Canjam shows! We'll strive to be on the sponsor list for Head-Fi and closely interact with you guys soon!

In the meantime, do not hesitate to PM me or email if you have any questions! :D

As a customer and through my reviewing I have worked several times with Eric Chong and always enjoyed my interactions with him. So when Eric recently decided to take a chance and co-found his own company, I stayed in touch with him to see what he would come up with. Because I know other people here on Head-fi are very curious about his new company too, Eric's a popular guy, I decided it would be okay for me to start this thread (something I usually don't do). The information below is quoted from the Eletech press release. And just to be clear, I am not affiliated with Eletech in any way.

It's great to have you back Eric! I've been emailing Eric back and forth mainly about the Iliad, as that just oozes class and I can't wait to try it with my VE8s. Eric was saying that they have made a last minute upgrade to the Plato and Iliad Y-Splits. I think they look much more refined, and will make cables look even classier:
