I have Vandersteen 2Ci's and was looking to add more punch in the bass. Good cables are esoteric and expensive. Came across your cable on Audiogon. The price was right and so were the testimonials so I thought I'd give them a try. Here's what I found: Your cables gave my speakers new life. Not only is the bass clean and tight but much more solid and a good foundation to the overall musical presentation. Mid's and Hi's are open and spacious. What also impress me is the "depth" of the sound stage. It's not just flat from left to right. Bye-the-way I heard an inadvertent flute note on the third track of Linda Ronstadt's "For Sentimental Reasons". Never hear that before! Vocals have great presence. My enjoyment is equal on every sound source; Vinyl, CD's and Tuner. Thank you very much. I'm in Love!! Just a final note. I was introduced to "High End" audio several years ago. My good friend even let me borrow some of his equipment so that I could audition its superior sound reproduction. Well now I was able to introduce him to your cable. He's not an easy guy to convince. Plus he was using Kimber Cable. He bought Anti Cable solely on my recommendation -(You're welcome). His name is Richard Barone. He bought his cable just this past week. Before he installs them we will do some A/B comparison. Sincerely, Curtis James, NY - No. 112) Jaw Dropping: Have been listening to the cables (Anti-Cables & Anti-ICs) for a couple of hours, and they are really jaw-droppingly good :) Thanks a lot! Robert Gray, The Netherlands - No. 113) Gobsmacked by Their Performance: Hmmm, interesting... My speakers use jumpers between the bass module and mid/top units (Verity Parsifal Encores). Changed out the normal speaker jumpers with anti-cable and although not burnt -in noticed a definite improvement. Although it was 11pm couldn't resist trying the 7' set as well, again much better in all areas to the Kimber 8ag (NOT a cheap cable !!) Have put about 25 hours on twisted anti-cables so far and their sounding better all the time. Thank you very much. Alan Sturges, England ...the Anti-Cable speaker wires have about 50 hours on them now, I'm still gobsmacked by their performance, can't wait for the I/C's ! My wife keeps telling me I look like a 'startled rabbit' lately when listening to the hi-fi ! Bye for now, regards Alan - No. 114) Real and in the Room: Just received my pair of anti cables, and swapped them out with a pair of MIT Terminator 2 cables which are very good. Well, I am amazed to say the least. I play the drums and I could swear the high hat and cymbals were real and in the room. The voices are so real you could touch them. Keep in mind that I am using a pair of Single driver speakers attached to a pair of amps with volume control so no pre amp. It is hard to believe that these can sound any better because real is real ?? Anyway, your product is exactly what it says and more. Thanks for the gift at this price!! "Chemboy645" - No.115) Freakin' scary good! Here's feedback on your anti-cables. I run a Conrad Johnson integrated tube amp, Mirage FRX-7 speakers, and a CAL Icon Mark ll cd player. The difference your anti-cables have made is simply just unbelievable. The bass is well defined, deeper, and with impact and power. The vocals are more transparent, and seamless. High frequencies, especially a triangle, tambourine, and cymbals really stand out. The soundtrack from Passenger 57 is freakin' scary good! I recommend these to all. They really rock! Just a wonderful product. Sincerely, Steven Gilmore, NY - No. 116) Order More: hi, paul, received & try the cable, i like them a lot, so i would like to order 2 more 8 feet pair with spade for my 2nd system. best regards Peter Woo, Canada - No. 117) A Nobel Peace Prize Nomination: Hi, Paul! First, thank you so much for your most excellent cables(and fast shipping, too). #2. For your price, I was prepared for the worst...haha, was I EVER surprised. Right out of the bag they are fabulous; if they get better with time I may need psychiatric help. I feel sooo stupid for spending amounts large enough for a mortgage on other cables, and, they did not sound near as good as the Anti-Cables! Everything (EVERYTHING!) sounds really great. All the descriptions, adjectives, et.al. that we are so familiar with but never are able to experience are here, and for peanuts, too! Paul, I think you should be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for your contribution to the Audio Industry...you quite possibly may have saved this fine hobby. I believe our great audio hobby was heading for implosion because of non-performing, un-obtainable multi-thousand dollar cables. Your cables shake the very foundation of aural sanity...how could these little innocuous cables, costing next to nothing, better the Goliath's of the cable industry? I don't know, but you are ONE fine gentleman for not [screwing us] as the others have done/are doing. As an aside, while auditioning the cables, listening to Pavarotti, I heard him burp...he tried to muffle it, but there it was...I never heard that before with my (plus) thousand dollar cables...And of course, the music is glorious. Thanks, Paul...I am happy, and this is fun, again! VERY Sincerely, Bruce Larson, NY - No 118) World-Wide Positive Change in the Cable Industry Please don’t raise the prices of your cables; you are making a very important statement with your excellent products. Please don’t turn into “one of them”. I’ve been in High End since 1976 and used to own my own “High End” store, Audio By Design in Sou-Cal in the mid 80’s-early 90’s. I know what goes on in the cable industry. While good wire is important, what’s happened since the late 1980’s has become ridiculous. There will be people who will doubt your product because of its pricing, please don’t give in to this psychology. There will be, if there hasn’t been already, “advice” that you should have a very expensive line if you “really want to be successful and gain respect” and have access to the “best audio salons”. It will be tempting- I’ve seen it happen many times. Most then fail. You have a unique opportunity here to cause a world-wide positive change in the cable industry and become a hero of sorts. Don’t let us down buddy! Thanks for reading this- happy holidays! Dr. Jay Sullivan, CA - No. 119) Hearing Things That I Wasn't Hearing Before: Having used your anti-cable speaker wire and ic's for a few weeks now I wanted to let you know how happy I am with your product. I bi-wired my paradigm s4 front and c3 center speakers with your anti-cable speaker wire, and replaced my balanced xlr connections between my anthem d2 pre/pro and anthem a5/a2 amps, and my analog rca connections between my denon 370 cd and the d2. All my comments are subjective since I'm only using my ears, and no expensive measuring equipment, but since I use my ears to listen music and movies, they are the best equipment I have. The clarity and openness of both cd's and dvd's is noticeably better. While I was waiting for my anti-cable products to arrive- which was very quickly- I decided to listen to some favorite cd's and movies so that I could judge at least subjectively, if there was any improvement with your products. There was! I was hearing things that I wasn't hearing before on both music and movies and the soundstage was noticeably improved. Since I was using monster cable for my connections I expected some improvement, but I'm surprised at just how much improvement. The monster cable speaker wire and ic's were of comparable price. I realize that many of your comments come from audiophiles who have used much more expensive products for comparison, and that much of your sales are aimed at audiophiles who have more disposable income than I do, but the improvement I hear in my system with just these few additions is remarkable. Keep up the good work. A great product at a great price. Tom Giloy, CO - No.120) Let the Truth be Heard: Hey Paul...I have been using your cables for about eight weeks now and I'm sure that the simple design of these cables is their strength...I replaced my other cables ( Highwire audio and Cardas Hexlink 5 ) and am enjoying the real sound of your cables...The other cables I had in my system did different things but I'm finding your cables to be overall the best. From a solid well defined bottom end to the dynamic, yet smooth mids to the clean and controlled highs, they are great across the entire spectrum. They sound live and very powerful....Like live music… they however don't fake anything...They don't smooth the sound of a bad recording the way the Cardas did, but most discs I play are like the first time hearing them...Audiophile CDs are unbelievable!!! WOW they sound Great!!! Not smoothed over like my old cables but LIVE!!!!. Dynamic and 3D.... Fast and defined...There simple design lets the Truth be heard. An Awesome deal...Thanks Jim MacInnis, Canada -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Anti-Cables can be purchased at any length for $10/foot for a stereo set.

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.
