My system consists of Chord Choral One CD Player, Gryphon Diablo Integrated Amplifier, Dynaudio Confidence 5 Loudspeakers. I use Cardas Audio Golden Reference balanced interconnect and Kimber Kable Monocle XL loudspeaker cable. When first time I used your IC's and Anti-Cables I noticed the sound is thin and sometime unpleasant in highs. But I did remember every cable have to run for a while. So they did for about 200 hours and the sound has greatly changed. The most impressive is the bass. It is very deep and tight. The mids and highs are clear and accurate. The whole picture is very much neutral. I cannot say that I hear these cables. On the opposite - I see the components of the system and what their input to the sound. I have just noticed a little bit laid back character of the IC's which was not very good for my ears. However maybe this is the character of my system (especially Chord Player) that I usually improve by using Cardas GR that focuses on mids. Conclusion: great solution for the money, especially for the systems that need to sound more clear and informative. Thank you and warm regards, Denis Shilakin, Russia - No. 192) One of the Most Positive Additions: Hi Paul (and Judy), Got the Anti-Cables that I ordered, in the mail on Friday - 4 days from MN to Ontario Canada - amazing! I ordered 2 sets, as I am using Paradigm Monitor P-40's which are bi-wired. Well, Phyllis (the better half) and I sat down and put on some very familiar music by Frank Sinatra on vinyl. Not only was there a difference, but it was a very noticeable difference - immediate and profound, to say the least. There was so much more mid-range and high end clarity that it was astounding! Phyllis was the first to comment on the change - so much more clarity and cleanliness of the sound. I would never have believed that just changing out speaker cables would ever make that much difference - but it does and in a very good way. All I can say is that this change has been one of the most positive additions to my system that I have made - period! I was a skeptic made into a believer, and if there was ever any doubt about how much a cable can affect the sound of a system, it is now dissolved completely. Thanks Paul and Judy, from Ken and Phyllis for making our system sound so much better. Regards, Ken Roach, Canada - No. 193) Discovered Beauty in Poland: Hello, Just a few days ago I received a parcel from you with speaker cables and IC. I couldn't stay any longer and I've connected them. What happened then was amazing. More details, fully controlled bass but treble and whole scene has moved backwards. It is not so bad but I've expected more. Midrange has surprised me, more details, very nice "reception', I've discovered again beauty of some older records. I'm expecting that after "warming up" they will expand their good qualities. My system: amplifier Roksan Caspain M series-1, CD player also Caspian, speakers jmlab focal chorus 807V, in close future also Caspian power amp. I'll let you know what happened after more hours of listening of yours Anti'es. Yours sincerely, Krystian Nowakowski, Poland - No. 194) Praise from Dubai: Dear Paul, Received the Anticables and listened to them , they deserve every praise said about them , transparency, clarity and sound stage. And better than any cables I used before. We talk about high cost at diminishing returns, time to talk low cost at high returns. It is strange how this Anticable at frictional cost of my system made such huge improvement. (NAD C372, Philips SACD 1000 + Dynaudio Cantour 1.1). Paul Thank You Raffy Garabedian, United Arab Emirates - No. 195) Sold off Cardas, Analysis Plus, Audioquest, and Audience Cables: Paul, I thought you would like this. I have sold these since I got yours: Cardas Gold Ref, Analysis Plus Solo Crystal Oval, Audioquest King Cobra, Audience AU24e, and others I’ve had… Audioquest Volcano speaker cable, Audioquest Indigo+, Forest+. I don’t have a cheep system, Cambridge 840c CD, Musical Fidelity A5, Bryston 4BSST amp, Bryston BP26 preamp, Martin Logan Ascent i speakers, and Anti’s, interconnects, speaker cable, and jumpers. Kris Teel, SC - No. 196) Still Shaking my Head in Amazement: Hi Paul - thanks again for these great cables - magnificent! I would never have believed that these would sound this good - in fact, when I first opened the package, I felt a little down-hearted. How can this work any better than my current cables? Oh well, I guess I have to follow through on these now. I wrestled them into place on the system. It was only then that the true nature of the beast revealed itself. It was a Frank Sinatra LP that I listen to a lot. I put on "Strangers in the Night" followed by "Summer Wind". At first I thought that I was imagining things. Old Frankie had stepped out front and belted out the tune with more clarity and better timbre than I remembered. When Summer Wind started, and the short trumpet "checking parts" came in, it became very obvious that something amazing was happening. That's when Phyllis said that she also noticed it and that there seemed to be less background noise. I think she is correct there too. I am still shaking my head in amazement. I have already posted rave reviews on these on the audiophile website that I belong to here in the Toronto area. It would not surprise me if it generated some sales for you ;-) Ken Roach, Canada - No. 197) Tonally Consistent and Free of Compression in New Zealand: I just wanted to confirm that I have received my cables today and had just finished a 3 hour listening session with these cables. I have to say that even without burn-in these cables are of a higher caliber of any cable I have tried in the past. This is the first cable that has enabled my system to sound tonally consistent and free of compression regardless of the volume setting. It has really brought out the absolute best in my system and is the best cable investment I've ever made. Thank you for your fantastic service and a truly world class product at an unbeatable value. Next on my order list will be the IC which I will contact you about in due course. All the best. Kumaren Perumal, New Zealand - No. 198) Improvements in Hungary: Dear Paul, I received the cables today (Anti-Cables & balanced XLR Anti-ICs). I have already hooked them up and am in the process of burning them in. I could already hear an improvement in the top end and a more controlled bass. Thank you again! Regards, Béla Juszel, Hungary - No. 199) Inexpensive Giant Killers: Dear Judy and Paul, A quick note of thanks for creating such a great product, the anti-cable. I have six systems, and you are part of each and every one of them. I sold the expensive stuff on "The GON", and I'm a happy little camper. I always knew someone could make an inexpensive giant killer, and you have done just that. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Howard R. Paul, Living in the sticks of North Eastern Pennsylvania - No. 200) Really Impressed with Overall Musical Presentation: I purchased some speaker cables from you several months ago and must say I am quite impressed; make that really impressed with the overall improvement in the overall musical presentation from my system. The soundstage width and depth are very lifelike now, tonality is true and detail and clarity much improved over my old cables. The bass from my satellites is almost unreal compared to what it was previously-tight, punchy (not tubby) and low (for a seven inch speaker). Needles to say I am much impressed with 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.
