Your speaker cables are the best bang for the buck audio accessories I have ever purchased! How do I leave feedback on Audiogon? THanks, Bill Daily, MO - No 172) Blew Audience AU24 out of the Water: Hi Paul, Okay....I am absolutely impressed! Your cables were beyond what I could have possible expected! I was running Monster M2.4S and was considering going with Audience AU24, but the anti-cables blew them both out of the water! I felt as though a thick veil of fog was lifted from my system. The warmth, the sound stage, the imaging and depth was immediately improved. I found myself enjoying music in a way I had never experienced with my system! On Dave Brubeck's "Take Five", for example, the title track was substantially deeper and more life-like behind every note! I though I had known that track so well. The clarity and the neutrality from these cables is unbelievable! I simply can't believe they sound this good with only 2 hours playing time on them. I will definitely be contacting you soon for a pair of your interconnects! Thank you so very much for being a true lover of music, and a true friend to the audiophile. Sincerely, Shaun Wick, Canada - No 173) Consistently Liquid and Precise (not a contradiction): Have now listened to my system with your cables for about 40 hours. As seems common with many who have written to you, the cables (bi-wired) replaced considerably pricier items. In my system (Sonus Faber Guarnieri speakers, cj premier 12's, Blue Circle preamp, Eurolab turntable) I had from the start accepted the inevitable trade-off of listening with great pleasure to small-scale chamber and solo music and voices with the knowledge that the speakers simply could not manage "large-scale" sound. Well right now, Bruckner's fourth symphony is filling the room and I constantly turning down the volume so as not to wake up the entire apartment building. I do not want to pretend that your cables have turned my speakers into Infinity IRS V's, but they have without question brought a vast range of musical material into the orbit of highly pleasurable listening. After going back and forward a few times between your cables and my old rig, I am confident that it is not an issue of frequency response: rather the cause is far far less smearing of the musical signal. The sounds I hear throughout the frequency range that the speakers can produce is consistently liquid and precise (not a contradiction) and the sound stage is filled with music that exhibits this quality throughout. Finally I am still hearing real - subtle but important improvement - in the sound. Certainly in my case, the sound out-of-the-box was very far from what I am now hearing. In conclusion, I have found speakers, amplification, and a turntable to live with for the long-term, and now can confidently say the same for your cable. Thank you for a terrific product at a truly humane price. David Steiner, NY - No. 174) Everything is Simply Amazing: For me buying AntiCables was not a "downgrade" from some hugely expensive cables, as is the case for many of your customers, but rather an upgrade from some really old cables that were still in my newly assembled system. The difference they made in detail, bass extension, soundstage, the sound of attacks and decays…EVERYTHING! is simply amazing. I will be ordering Anti-ICs soon! Thanks so much, Robert Lattanzi, NY - No 175) Removed a Pair of Absurdly Expensive Tara Cables: Judy and Paul, Suffice it to say that I am more than content with my purchase. (I removed a pair of absurdly expensive Tara cables and tried out your Anticables this afternoon.) The difference between the Tara cables (almost as thick as my arm and as wieldy as an anaconda) was immediate. The highs were much better defined and open, the mids were gorgeous. (Chris Whitley, "Hotel Vast Horizon" CD) As I said before, the difference was immediately apparent to me. I would love to tell you to charge more, but I will be buying more down the road. In the meantime, I'll spread the word - just a little bit. Thanks for an excellent product well worth the money. PS: The color KILLS! Bill O'Brien, NY - No 176) A Decade of Wire Shopping Comes to a Stop: Judy and Paul, Fantastic job developing this product. I am extremely happy with the return on my investment. After spending a decade shopping for a set of wires that are reasonably priced and sonically transparent I have stopped looking. What you have done should be earmarked as a victory for the audio community, giving the hobby back to the enthusiast and making some of the industry gatekeepers double-check their keyrings. I remarked to myself while writing this that your product/company is almost like a charitable foundation for audiophiles abused by the marketing machine. With much appreciation, Michelle Aplin, OH - No 177) Made MIT Music Hose sound Constricted: Dear Paul, I've been using a 10' pair of AC for the past few weeks and wanted to tell you what a significant improvement they are over my aged MIT Music Hose. When I first hooked them up, my wife, whose ears are far better than mine, exclaimed how terrific the music suddenly sounded, and she was in the next room! After a few weeks, as an "A_B" I swapped the MIT's back and immediately was struck by how 'constricted" they sound compared to the AC's. "Wow" is the operative word! Kind regards, Paul Sanders, WA - No. 178) Fantastic Cables: I am sure you hear this all the time, but thank you so much for these fantastic cables. Everything has improved and things sound "like they should". Also, thanks for selling your product at a price I can afford. I am sure you could sell these for much more if you wished. Many Thanks, Robert Stejskal, UT - No. 179) Trashed Far More Expensive Cables in Greece: Hello, I have received the anticables two weeks ago in excellent shape and I could not stop listening to them. They sound absolutely great in my system and actually they have trashed my far more expensive -but significantly older- cables. I have already started spreading the word around... Thank you for a great bargain! Kind Regards, Konstantinos Xanthopoulos, Greece - No. 180) Add Another Rave to the Pile: Dear Judy, Greetings from perpetually snowy Toronto. I hope you’re well. Add another rave to the pile. Right out of the box your speaker cables have brought a delightful improvement. I tremble at the thought of further revelations with break-in! Why some mega-cost cable outfit hasn’t put out a contract on your operation is beyond me. Of course, now that Pandora’s box is opened, my thoughts turn to replacing my interconnects. At least I know it won’t cost an arm and a leg to do so. If there was a Nobel prize for audio, I’m sure that it would be in the bag for you and your product.

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.
