This was a gift for my son for Christmas 2018. It was exactly as pictured. He needed it for his digital piano, and he tells me that it's great, he would recommend it, and it was better than some of Amazon's. (Oops, did I repeat that out loud). :)
I normally don't write reviews, but I just had to share my experience with someone. This truly beautiful cable arrived upon the wings of angels within 3 days of ordering it. A true miracle considering the sheer distance it had to traverse. When I opened the package a golden glow filled the room and trumpets blared while the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang a chorus of "Hallelujah". When I plugged the cable in the electrons flowed like honey carrying the most breathtaking video I have ever seen and the most melodious audio I have ever heard. If I could give this product 6 stars I would, but alas, there are only 5.
