Mine was shipped from KAB late in June 2010 !!
Kevin says it it the most recent production.
He has read this thread and has the cable markings numbers that are bad (AWM 2562 E81015 VW1 80C 300V HSD LF).
He tells me that good cables he has looked at have a center insulator (red/white) diameter of about .10" and are marked "Mighty Wire" (E220774 AWM STYLE 2555)
I sent him a message today (after reading this thread) that the insulator diameter of my bad (300pf +) cable was only .048"
It's funny, that he thought I was the one who started this thread..
I had an Ortofon 2M red installed and had what I thought (and now know) was a peak in the lower to mid trebble with a fast drop of above that. My preamp has 200pf input C and with the cable I was over 500pf !!
This caused a huge peak about 5-7khz.
I changed to the MG5 cable and also to a new AT440MLA cartridge that work well !!!
