Before rushing to test out the new cables, I warmed up my HiFi system with several reference albums using the existing speaker cables (Belden 5T00UP) to establish the reference. Then I switched to anti-cables and compared the audio performances. I was surprised to find out the differences were so obvious. Both the clarity and the sound stage has been enhanced, roughly by 20-30%. I didn't know my KEF 207/2 speakers could sound so charming! I kept listening to my favorite albums until midnight as the music was so sweet with the new cables. Now I regret that I didn't bundle the IC cables with the order for the speaker cables. Anyway, well done Paul! Regards, Paul Leung, Hong Kong - No. 262) This Canadian Had to Take His Time: Hi, I bought a pair of your Anti-Cable last month. At first try, I was not amazed. However, like any other cable, I let it time to burn in. All I have to say now is WOW. I notice that with time the bass have improved. The voices are very neutral and also notice that the drum cymbals are very clear and realistic. Now the only thing left is to buy a pair of jumper cables for my Maggies. I have a pair of 1.6 Maggies. Thanks, Mike Hebert, Ottawa Canada - No. 263) Paid 8 Times More, and Still in a Different League: Paul, Upon receiving the cables I wondered just how they would sound. I’ve always agreed solid core is better than stranded. I've spent way too much on “salon cables” and have like many of them but I wasn’t prepared for what I heard. Astounding would be an insult, right out of the bag. They know have about 50 hours on them and they keep sounding better. Whatever you’ve done you’ve nailed it. I’ve spent 8 times the cost of these and they aren’t even in the same league as yours. You have proved to me that the “vodoo” in the expensive cables is true. To anyone that may read this, buy these now. Thank You.

The sound was just as simple as your cable design; it just let the music flows into my speaker! Even from out of the box, it sounds very natural, clean, quiet and have a very balanced sound... And if it does improve with time (break in), I couldn't be happier! I don't have a high end system, but even in my very humble system this cable gives very much improvement over my previous cable (a relatively cheap Mogami speaker cable, but even that Mogami cost me more than your cable did). I'm very happy with my purchase, your cable definitely have an amazing value for money. Thank you for the great product and service Mr. Speltz :) Aryo Baskoro, Indonesia - No. 265) Smitten: Paul, I must say how smitten I am with your products thus far. I mentally kick myself for having gone for the hype on so many other products that left me still wanting, and there after try your creation (at less cost) and find exactly what I've been looking for. I hope that you and Judy will continue to keep the door open for those of us that can come to appreciate your fine workmanship and products, thank you Paul. Best Regards, James Frazier, SC - No. 266) Shootout against Audioquest cables costing 10 times more: Paul, I bought a set of the ACs over 6 months ago. I knew when I plugged them in that they were special because they sounded considerably better than my older Transparent Wave speaker cables and a few other budget cables I have. That was on my older system and I didn't have any high-end cables to compare them to so I decided to wait to review them. I recently upgraded to a new Classe Pre/Dac and power amp and have been demo’ing USB and interconnect cables. I was pretty impressed by the sound coming from the system when I found the right cables. Before I bought the new USB and ICs I wanted to borrow a set of "high-end" speaker cables to ensure that the Anti-cables were representative of a good speaker cable. I have a set of Audioquest Gibraltars and Comets on loan. Well, I can say that the ACs handily beat the Gibralters. The tonality of the Gibralter is not as neutral and the soundstage isn't as deep. I'm listening to the Comets now and I think that the ACs have a slightly better soundstage and more precise imaging. Wow, these cost more than 10 times what the ACs cost! The sound coming through the ACs is crystal clear, has no apparent coloration and presents the spatial information of the performance. The bass is tight and deep and treble is clean and natural. I'm normally hesitant to label things as "giant killers" or over-hype products, and generally think you get what you pay for. However, I have to say that these cables are the deal of the century! I'll definitely be ordering more, and I'll tell my friends about them. Jeff Tischer, CO - No. 267) Fun Cables: Cables received in fine shape: What fun! Nothing but pure, clean, full sound! Thank you, Jonathan Barnes, CA - No. 268) I Feel Like a Fool: Before I bought my anti cables I had owned a pair of Audioquest Gibraltar Bi wire speaker cables. Keep in mind that the audioquest are very expensive (over $1000) and that they are about 10x thicker than the anti cables. You would expect them to perform beyond anything. Audioquest uses very fancy DBS system together with banana plugs and spades. Despite this fact, the anti cables are better. In truth I didn't want them to be, because now I feel like a fool for wasting that much money on AQ. The sound differences are subtle but in the end, the anti cables have better clarity and are more neutral. Most products that are too good to be true usually are. The anti cables are the exception. I’m now ordering your IC's this week. PS. Thanks Paul, you saved me a fortune. :-) Marc M, Lakewood NJ - No. 269) Dynamics Explode Out of the Sound Stage: I've received the cables in fine order and relatively quickly as well. Very slight difficulty getting the cables on my terminals, due to the nature of the cables. They sound far, far, far better than what I was using. Not having much time on them, still sounded much better. Like having blankets removed from off the speakers! (25+ yrs young Fried model B speakers) Dynamics explode out of the sound stage. (Listening to Cecilia Bartoli) The speaker cable looks nice too! I plan on buying your interconnects, perhaps next month! They will surely be the cable of choice, when I am able to buy more extensive gear! I am loving them! Thanks! The best to you! Al Richardson, NC - No. 270) A Dramatic Difference: Hello Paul and Judy - To Amy's surprise (more than mine), we were able to immediately hear the substantial difference your cables made in transparency, resolution, bass performance and overall musicality once installed in our system here in Scottsdale, AZ. We live in Scottsdale during the winter months. In early May, we will return to our primary home in Portland, Oregon, where we have our main stereo system, which consists of: 1) Primare CD 21 player we are using as a transport; 2) Berkeley Alpha DAC, 3) Modwright Instruments KWA 100SE amplifier; 4) original Shunyata Hydra and Power Snakes Python serving all electronics, 4) Sonus Faber Cremona M speakers, and 5) Analysis Plus Oval 9 loudspeaker cables. The Anti-Cables made a dramatic difference in the performance of our "secondary" system here in Scottsdale. The question is: do you think they would out-perform our Analysis Plus cables in the system in Portland? We realize that you have a 30 days return policy. Even so, we would very much appreciate knowing your thoughts on the question of Anti-Cables vs. Analysis Plus Oval 9 cables. (Time is money; and for us, since we are greying and retired, time is time. We don't want to waste yours of ours. But are willing to try them when we return to Portland if you think there is real possibility that the Anti-cables would out-perform the Analysis Plus cables in our system in Portland.) The Analysis Plus Oval 9s were part of our first high-end stereo system in Portland. They are the only things left from that first system. The question is whether it's time for a change of speaker cables and to Anti-cables specifically? Look forward to hearing from you, and thanks. Rudy Westerband, AZ - - - - - Rudy and Amy, I am glad you hear you are enjoying your music more with the Anti-Cables in AZ. Yes, you have some very good components in you system in Portland, and they will do well by having the best cabling. I have been quietly making and selling what I have been calling my "Reference" series of products for quite a few years. With my speaker cables, this will move you from 12 gauge, up to 9 gauge, so there is twice as much copper. With twice as much copper, there are twice as many electrons available to better move current from your amps to your speakers. This Reference version gives up nothing to my standard version but brings through more bass weight, and greater musical dynamics. Together, they make listening to a system sound more real and life-like. I have simply been too busy keeping up with emails and orders to re-do my web site to include all my new products (which also includes Reference interconnects, digital cables and power cords). I am confident that my Reference series of Anti-Cable products can outperform your Analysis Plus speaker cable, and also your interconnects and maybe even those Shunyata power cords. Thanks!

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.
