Awesome Job @Slater. Seriously both you and @hakuzen are really doin a great thing here. Good to hear the HCK 8 cores are of good quality. It seems like that's where its at for cheap replacement cables for cheaper Chifi models. I have to say as far as looks and price go, the 8 core w/carbon plug is probably a "best buy". Really looking forward to the 16 core teardown. I am hopeful that its the real deal.
