I say "may be" only because my 8-ft Anti-Cables are still being broken in. I'm using your cables between an updated Audible Illusions preamp, NuForce Reference 9 amps, and a Marantz SA8260 CD/SACD player. Speakers are Reference 3A MM di Capo I's. I plan to try the ICs between my SOTA Sapphire TT, with its modified Well-Tempered Arm and my new Shelter 9000 cartridge. That will be the ultimate test in my rig. Congratulations; you deserve gratitude from a great many audiophiles and music lovers (sometimes there is a difference!)." Jim Rogers, NM - No. 102) Replaced Harmonic Tech and Mapleshade cables: "I received the speaker cables today and I can’t believed it, the differences are like from the moon to the earth, they just replaced my Harmonic Tech Pro 11 cables. I am hearing things I didn't hear before when using the HT and they are also better than Mapleshade Double Helix Cables which I also own. Thank You!" Edgar Luciano, AZ - No. 103) Happier with Maggies: "I am using the Anticables for my Maggie 1.6QR's, powered by B&K 442 Sonata Series. I could not be happier with the improvement over my previous cables. Now, the soundstage appears wider and there is a fuller, more dynamic soundstage. Thanks again." James Dixon, MN - No. 104) As Transparent as Anything I Have Heard: "Paul, I have just completed 150 hours on your wonderful cables. We have been living in our RV for the past two years making a film. I put what I considered good equipment in the RV, this consisted of an Arcam A-75 amp/pre and DV-78 DVD/CD player, along with Musical Fidelity X-CANS headphone amp and power supply feeding into this was the Grado RS-1 headphones. My speakers were Monitor Audio Radius R-90's and AudioQuest speaker wire. The headphones sounded great but the speakers sounded like their size; nothing spectacular." "We finished our movie and moved temporarily to a house in Austin where I removed the system from the RV and installed it into a small upstairs room, where it sounded marginally better. I took a chance on your anti-cables after reading a revue in TAS, I have never bought blind before. After installing your cables everything started to open up; I say started because now (150) hours later they are as transparent as anything that I have heard before!" "We have a system in storage up in Montana that is my source system. It is basically Krell pushing Dynaudio Contour 4's with Ocos wire, yes it is transparent but not more than your wire. We will soon be bringing that system down to Austin where I will be ordering more Anti-Cable to bi-wire that system. Thank you Paul for bringing affordability to the high end!" Michael Judge, TX - No. 105) One of the Best Bargains in the World: "Even with very little break-in time so far, I am extremely impressed with my Anti-Cables. I have relatively long runs (25 and 30 ft) and don't notice any ill effect. They easily beat any other speaker cable I've used, including various Kimber, Audioquest and Mapleshade varieties." "The Anti-Cables truly disappear - in fact, I am most impressed with what they do not do as far as adding any kind of sonic signature. I am planning to try a twisted pair arrangement and see what the result is. I am also very curious to try the interconnects. Thank you for a great product and for offering one of the best bargains in the world of audio." Associated equipment: Portal Audio Panache amp Reference 3A Dulcet speakers Alan Deremo, CA - No. 106) Sold off the $890 Straightwire cables: "Hiya Paul, Well...I've had a few weeks to try your cables, and to make a long story short, I just sold my $890.00 set of Straightwire Maestro Double Shotguned Bi-Wire's in lieu of your incredible sounding Anti-Cables. I'm sooo Impressed! :) My Vandersteen 2ce's have never sounded so balanced." "PS...My friend John Kawalec ordered a set of your AC's 2 days after he laid an ear on my set. They knocked his socks off as well. Thanks," Scott Groves, VA - No. 107) Sound Fantastic throughout the Spectrum: "Paul, I guess you have to include me with the break-in crowd. Out of the box the bass was clearly better than my previous cables, but i thought the highs were a little rolled off. Now that they have a couple hundred hours on them they sound fantastic throughout the spectrum." "Thanks for a great product. I left positive feedback for you on Audiogon, and I'd appreciate you doing the same for me. Take care!" David Armstrong, OR - No. 108) Totally Lost for words in Austria "Hi Paul, I recently bought some of your anti cables and have to admit, that I'm at a total loss of words to describe the extremely positive effect it had...." "I used it also to connect the speaker-terminals with the driver (internal wiring) and inside my power-amp (valve to trans to terminal) with great success. Kind regards," Dieter Karner, Austria (Europe) - No. 109) Money Well Spent: "Dear Paul, I've had the AntiC's in my system for 3 days now. I understand there is a long break I period, but the results are encouraging already. I have a revealing system: Van Anstine Amp/Pre, Gallo Reference III speakers, Mag/dyn tuner and CA cd player. I am only mentioning this because the system is incredibly sensitive and reveals shortcomings in every cable I have tried. Negative effects have ranged from sound field compression to instrument collision. I am jealous of those who cannot hear the differences in cables and I also wonder what the hell they are listening to." "So far, your cable has no shortcomings. Also, there is some previously missing detail now showing up in my reference recording for the wire evaluation, which is LVB's Missa Solemnis, a large choral mass. Anyway, I just wanted to say... good product. I feel my money was well spent. In this crazy mixed up world, you can look yourself in the mirror and have no regrets about the way in which you conduct your business. This is an important thing." "Good luck to you and I will keep you informed about the wires after they are fully broken in. Regards," Dave Kurek, PA - No. 110) Bye Bye AU24: "Hello Judy and Paul, I received the order for cables very promptly and I am totally amazed with your Anticable Speaker wire. I'm currently using the Audience AU24 cable and I'm already liking the Anticable better. It looks like the AU24 will be going bye bye. Thanks for your assistance...and great cables."

This is quite amazing, considering they cost 1/100 as much as others on the list. ...and the best awards of all: The Absolute Sound's Top 200 Audio Products 2010 and 2011 (issue 197 & 207) The Absolute Sound's Top 200 Audio Products for 2011 lists the Anti-Cables along with only 9 other speaker cables which are priced as amazing as $24,900. Printed below is the original TAS review: Paul Speltz’s “anti-cable” speaker cables are a godsend to those of us who want good sound but are repulsed by the astronomically high prices some cable manufacturers are asking for their goods. I know cable manufacturers need to make a living, and I have no problem with that, but there’s a limit to what I can conceive of spending on a hunk of wire. (And yes, I know how essential that hunk of wire can be to the sonic integrity of one’s system, but when all is said and done, it’s still a hunk of wire.) Thus the name “anti-cables.” This stuff goes against everything most high-end speaker cables are typical known for—like ridiculously high prices, haute couture designer jackets, and compromised sonics. At this point, I’ve only had a few weeks to audition them, so it’s possible that extended listening could reveal a shortcoming or two. But so far, I have to say I’m blown away by the neutrality and lack of coloration I’m hearing and by the absence of any apparent downside. The high frequencies are open and clear with no tizziness; the midrange has exceptional clarity, transparency, and detail; and the bass is extended, with remarkable articulation. Miraculously, the cost is only $80 for an 8 foot pair with spades. If you visit Paul Speltz’s anti-cable Web site you can read the story behind these cables along with technical info and testimonials up the ying-yang. In a nutshell, the anti-cables are constructed of 12-gauge solid-core copper wire with a very thin red coating or dielectric. According to Speltz, it’s the minimal dielectric that accounts for the amazing clarity and virtual lack of sonic signature. These cables are a bit stiff, but still easy to work with. They do require shaping to keep off the carpeting and away from other components and cables, but I’d say the bending and shaping, at most, might take an extra few minutes per cable.
