Chinese "Lemo" Connectors

Recommended Posts

What's the experience with these?  Just built a Lemo-to-Lemo for a friend and he gasp at the final price.  If the Chinese (eBay) 5-pins work okay, it may be worth a look-see.

Avoid. Quality and longevity is nowhere near the same.

You wouldn't save money by having knock off gear for your mics, recorder or timecode hardware.  Same thing applies to your cables!

I hate Lemos but they are a fact of life for a location soundie these days (thanks, Nagra...).  I would have to have it proven to me that a knock-off connector is precise enough to mate with the real thing as mounted on a device without jamming and thus totally hosing me.  Even real Lemos have jamming problems (esp small ones) after a certain amount of use.

I've had no problem with these at all as it makes you wonder where Lemo are really made!!

 

Even the made up cables at a third of the cost of one locally bought connector!

They suck,  very often in the smaller ones pins are not aligned well, and dont work at all or get mushed up when inserted. 

ALthough lemo prices are complete retarded, these Chinese ones do suck :(
