With Christmas decorating, I finally had to move a bunch of furniture, etc. and so I took the opportunity to put the new cabling in place. I have been using extra-heavy copper wire cables from power extension cords with the receptacles cut-off. A cheap way to get copper. So think of them as extra heavy duty zip cord. At first I only switched to anticables on one channel...thinking I would run an experiment through the holidays with break-in etc. and really see if I could hear the difference. The difference was so jaw droppingly immediately good that I said "Hell, the experiment is over." I converted over to the anticables all at once. The sound is much better across the entire frequency range: the mid-bass is there with real warmth, low-bass is much stronger and well defined, and even the treble is extended with a sheen I hadn’t heard before. My speakers are Belle Klipsch's which can be accused of some 'horn-honk' but that is greatly improved and women's vocals are sweeter and smoother. I will enjoy the holidays re-discovering my audio equipment and music. Thanks! Joe Eschbach, CA - No. 222) A Great Match with Magnapan: Mr. and Mrs. Speltz, Just wanted to let you know your cables are working out beautifully. They are a great match with my Magnapan 1.6QR. A large improvement over the Audioquest cable I was using. As has been said before, and this is so true in my system, much more detail and depth to the music. It’s all about what you HEAR and not what fancy equipment you see on the floor or on the shelf. Thank you very much Randy Byar, SC - No. 223) The Musical Message Makes More Sense Than Ever: Hi Paul, I received my speaker cables yesterday and tried them in the evening. I was a bit late to work this morning because I couldn’t stop spinning records last night, amazed was I by all the things I was hearing that I had never heard before. And it’s not only small details that are better; the musical message seems to make more sense than ever with these cables. I won’t try to give you a full description of my impressions, so many people have already done so that it would sound redundant. Let’s just say that once I hooked up my speakers with your cables, I just couldn’t stop listening to the music. Isn’t it what this is all about… I’m done searching for speaker cables. I guess there are better cables on the market but as far as value is concerned, you’re all alone up there. By the way, the cables I replaced with yours retailed at $1100, more than 10 years ago, not counting the bananas which cost more than my complete Anti-cable set. I’ll be spreadin’ the news. Thanks again Bruno Clerk, Canada - No. 224) Sanity in Sweden: Hi Judy & Paul, Just a short note to thank you for bringing some sanity to the often strange world of hi-fi. The anti-cables I received a few weeks ago brings new levels of enjoyment to my music-listening (the window- cleaning metaphor is very appropriate) and does so without hyperbole and a fancy price/packaging. In the best of worlds your product should make business hard for quite a few of the prestige cable-brands out there, but I guess many people want to believe in the power of a high price-tag. For my part, I'm getting curious about your IC’s. So, expect another order from me in the future. Best wishes Olof Kåhrström, Sweden - No. 225) Vastly Superior to the PS Audio Cables Costs a Dozen Times More: Paul: Two days.... just two days and I am a believer in your anti-cables. To call them a Godsend is not an understatement. The first day's listen was unbelievable. I replaced a pair of PS Audio Statement speaker cable with the anti-cable (the PS Audio cable costs about a dozen times more than your cable). Unbelievable! Whatever in particular I was listening for, soundstage, harmonics & timbre, bass & treble, voices, etc., your anti-cable thoroughly trounced the PS Audio cables (on their way to Audiogon for a sale with no regrets). Still, I've let a first listen deceive me many times regarding audio products, only to find with the next day's listening all I actually heard was a different version of the same thing, or only slight improvements. My second day's listening to the anti-cables was just as good, and maybe, better than the first day's listening. I was more familiar with the sound, yes, but they still floored me completely. In fact, being familiar with the sound of your cables made me like them even more. Being familiar with your anti-cables seems to actually mean there's more to like about them. I can't wait until these have gone through some break-in time. Maybe I should be trying to weasel out some kind of "work-from-home" scheme right now. p.s. It's been decades since I've went to bed with music still playing. I thought that was kid's stuff, or something I'd outgrown. I've had my CD on repeat, playing new age music like Stephen Halpern's stuff, and even while listening to my system (in my living room) from my bedroom the sound is still so mesmerizing. I don't want to turn it off. I just let my system play all night and right up until minutes before I leave for work. Thanks for a truly great and inexpensive product. I will be ordering a set of the anti-IC's in the very near future. …a few weeks later… Mr. Speltz: I installed your Anti-IC's and again I experienced a quite noticeable improvement. I really can't say which was more of an improvement, your cables or your IC's, but both were vastly superior to the items they replaced (PS Audio Statement - PSAudio Xtreme Transcendent) to my ears, and in my opinion. Another thing I thought worth mentioning is the fact that when you bend your IC's and Cables they stay in place. Because they have this ability, my audio rack is so much more tidy & there is less worry of things overlapping or touching & interfering with each other. I just bend/manipulate them into the place and position I want them to occupy and they stay there. I envision as I buy more IC's for other components the rear of my rack will become more and more tidy. Thanks again for offering such a truly great product at a truly great price. Larry Collins, MD - No. 226) Just Music: Hi Judy, I'm glad I contact you to say I am very happy with the Anti-Cables & Anti-ICs, I did not believe much in them, but I decided to try and after a few days I've noticed they really are what their own name suggests, natural and neutral as I have heard, only lead the music, a real success, thanks. José Martinez, Spain - No. 227) The Tara's Won't be Returning: Hi Guys (or should I say: Guy & Gal?). I have been listening to your anti-cables for several days now, and I must admit that I am very impressed with what I hear (and don't hear). However, I don't think you need another individual to wax poetic over their virtues, so I will keep this short. I replaced an aging pair of TARA Space & Time Phase II cables, and while I have never had any complaints over their presentation... well, let me just say that the Tara's won't be returning to my system any time soon. I have been able to assemble a very satisfying system acquiring components that give me a great deal of the high end attributes without any of the high end cost. Your cables fit very nicely among these components. Many thanks for providing the opportunity for an average "Joe" to find delight in a product whose value far exceeds its cost by a considerable margin. Have a great July 4th celebration. Steve Draxl, NY - No. 228) Cables are a Keeper: Paul I hooked up the Anti Speaker cables today. I have them so they do not touch the floor or each other. My system consists of a McIntosh MC206 amp, McIntosh MX118 pre amp, Meridian CD, and Thiel CS2.4 speakers with a sub. These replaced old Monster M1 cables. I listened to James Taylor JT, Linda Ronstadt TRIO and Steely Dan Aja with my old cables then switched to yours. Same volume. For my system the bass did not go quite as low as the Monster M1s but the bass seemed to tighten up. The imaging and treble range was more detailed and pleasant sounding to my ears. The soundstage was much more detailed. Your cables are a keeper for me and I will try your interconnects next starting with a pair for my CD player. Vern Neal, NY - No. 229) Heard the Difference Immediately: Hi Judy, I received the speaker cables you sent me late last week. I could not wait to put them into my system. I heard the difference immediately. It gave me a significantly better sound stage (even with the old speaker wires it was very good) as well as better bass, mid and high range. I am truly impressed. I will be ordering shortly a pair of interconnects. I use a lot of audio gear modified by Stephen Sank who lives in Tucson Arizona. I have informed him of the virtues of your product. He informed me that I was the second customer of his who had mentioned Anticables and that he was going to look into the matter. He is well known because his modifications are well known and sought after. I told him that your cables were definitely better than the LAT international cables which he up to now at least considered to be the best cables he had come across. Be in touch soon, Burkhard Kiesekamp, Canada - No. 230) Compared to Kimber Kable 8TC: Paul and Judy, I got my order from you yesterday; 4’ single wire w/ spades. I am playing a lossless iPod Touch via a docking station embedded on a Peachtree iDecco integrated amplifier driving a pair of Spendor S 3/5se. (The iDecco has an internal DAC to give a cleaner digital signal and a single bypassable Russian 6N1P/6Н1П triode in the pre-amp). See: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/idecco/idecco.html. This is a very modest system compared to many other listeners using Anti-Cables although I get excellent midrange resolution. I have already heard a substantial difference over my previous cables, the Kimber Kable 8TC (bare wire connection). Despite the fact that they are equivalently priced, the Anti-Cable sounds cleaner than the 8TC right out of the box, especially in the midrange. Female vocals, tenor sax, and trumpet sound more lifelike. The Anti-Cables give greater presence and it is easier to distinguish where instruments are in the sound field compared to the 8TC. The Spendors are bi-wire capable but I will stick to the single wire configuration for now. I’ll be back next month for a pair of the Anti-IC. Thank you so much for the fast turn-around. I got this order in 3 days!

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.
