It sounds like no cables at all, just music. Best wishes" John Kornhauser, CA - No.62) Replaced Analysis Plus Clear Oval: "I received the cables yesterday. Well frankly I was astounded! I seemed to gain another 1/2 octave in both the bass region and the treble region. Piano was as close to live as I have ever heard from a sound system. One of my favorite CDs is of Brian Bromberg (title is Wood) playing a 300 year old stand-up acoustic bass. The articulation was incredible. Your cables replaced Analysis Plus Clear Oval. Thanks for a great product!" Richard Dolan, Canada - No.63) Open and Clean: "Paul I got the "Anti's". I like the way they sound. Open and clean, good extension. Thanks." Roy Francisco, CA - No.64) Significant Improvement over Magnan Reference ($$$): "Dear Paul, Your package arrived safely in London and after 24 hours non-stop burn-in the results are simply spectacular." "Compared to the Magnan Reference (big $$$) which I used previously there are significant improvements in 3 dimensions and they aren't gradual!" 1: Speed: this is really amazing, the reeds of oboes or woodwinds can be heard scratching as the player forms the sound, on strings you not only hear individual players in the orchestra but also the actual sound when the bows hit the strings; pizzicati don't sound like 'pop' but like 'pling' and the voices of singers contain the actual hissing and breathing sounds I couldn't hear before. 2: Space: while my omnidirectional Duevel Bella Luna horns always benefited from a huge soundstage, there is now space and air around each individual musician and they are located such that you don't just hear the general position but can actually pinpoint first and second oboes or flutes next to each other. 3: Grip: what was a euphonic but slightly bloated bass has become a much 'deeper' bass, trombones and tympani sound awesomely wholesome and again, plugged contrabass has body and speed. "Anybody using OTLs and horns tends to be spoiled for transparency, the addition of the Zeros and your Anti-Cables simply took the game to a different level. This has been the best value for money upgrade to my system ever! While I cannot attribute the gain to either autoformers or cable since you were kind enough to ship them hardwired, the whole thing is too good for words, thank you very much!" My system comprises: Speakers: Duevel Bella Lunas (nom. 6 Ohms, min. 4 Ohms) Amp: Graaf GM20 (OTL, balanced, nom. 8 Ohms, 2x 20W) CD: Audioaero Capitole 192 ( incl. valve analogue gain stage as preamp, balanced) Vinyl: Clearaudio Solution, Clearaudio Symphono (bal), Morch UP4 12in, Zyx R1000 Airey2 Cables: Van den Hul Jubilee XLR The Zeros are 2x stepup and the anticables are 13'. "If I can help with any references, pls. let me know, I copied Markus Duevel, the designer of the Bella Lunas on this mail." Norbert Reis, England - No.65) Replace Kimber 8TC cables... then grin: "Thanks for the cables, since I installed them I cannot stop grinning every time I listen." "My Vienna Acoustics Mahlers/Bryston 4B-ST/Electrocompaniet EC4.7/Meridian 508.24 system has never sounded this good. The best indication of musicality is how often one feels the urge to sit down for a listen, which is every chance I get now." "First impressions were: more relaxed sound, more power and a more tune-full bass..." "Longer term impressions: more micro-dynamic detail, "faster", can hear details never heard before on "very" familiar CD's. I am so glad I decided to browse speaker cables on Audiogon and coming across your customer's testimonials. I thought my Kimber 8TC would be hard to improve upon (on a budget anyway). Now all I can say is: WOW, WOW, WOW. Thanks!" Bruno Pappalardo, CA - No.66) No Doubt Better in Switzerland: "I have listen several hours your cables and I am very surprised. I think the cables are good, perhaps excellent!! My system are Nola Viper Signature with the Black Orpheus cables which I have exchanged against yours (in bi-wire). On several disks, I find the anticables with no doubt better." "Timbres of the instruments are very good, soundstage great (similar as with the Black Orpheus), excellent tonal balance and finally the sound is very natural, effortless..." Jann Weiss, Switzerland - No.67) Best Upgrade at any Price: "Paul, I just got your Anticables and hooked everything up...at this point I'm straining to not cuss out loud for a very long time for I am in shock at how amazing these Anticables are. Right now i'm hearing thundering bass through my Thiel CS2's that i've never heard, along with clarity that's quite unbelievble....all this from 5 minutes of listening!!!!" "These cables along with Mapleshade Records Mikro Smooth CD treatment are by far the best upgrades for my musical tastes at any price." "Keep up the good work, i'm thoroughly impressed." Matt Cecil, IL - No.68) The Best Thing I Did: "Dear Paul: I finally hooked up the package you sent me. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Next to marrying my wife, the best thing I did was to purchase your products (Anti-Cables and Anti-ICs). Please express my thanks to Judy as well." Joel Jastromb, IL - No.69) Nothing Comes Remotely Close: "Hello Paul & Judy, I just wanted to let you both know I have been using your Anti-cables for about a month and they are great. The first thing I noticed was the clarity and articulation of the bass. My old cables which I thought sounded pretty good, sound slightly fuzzy and not as immediate. I have to tell you for the money I can't think of anything that comes even remotely close. Do you make an interconnect?" "Thank you for a truly remarkable product. I will be enthusiastically recommending you to all who will listen. Sincerely" Bryan Anderson, IL - No.70) Replaced Audio Note Cables: "You caught my attention with your speaker cables! They sound very musical and effortless and they are currently replacing my Audio Note AN-SPa's. Which one is the better one is a matter of taste. They both let the music/message through and that's what's important to me. So now I'm very curious how your Anti-IC's would sound like in my system."

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.
