My middle name is "skepticism". I decided to give your anti-cables a try, not because they are ridiculously cheap but because the reviews they received indicated the kind of sound - or lack of sound- I was looking for. $120 for a pair bi-wire was worth the try." "Your cables are the 9th pair in my system in the last year. You can call that "audiophilia nervosa" if you want, but I have not been able to find the right mix of tight bass, clean midrange and extended yet smooth highs yet. And my last pair of cables are $950 for 3 feet biwired, so money has never really been the issue." "I will spare you all the details that you probably already know about transient, speed, clarity and so. Let me just tell you that 3 years ago, I had my most satisfying listening session at a dealer ever (about a $100,000 system). Tonight, my $8,000 system came very very close, as close as it has ever been: tight yet blooming bass, details that I had never heard before, 3rd, maybe 4th dimension in sound, hand-clapping that freaked me out, exceptional layering and depth that gave me the impression that my room was 2-3 times bigger and above all, a truly open window with extended highs that just keep rising and rising until they disappear far away." "Is this what neutral is? I have no clue, defining neutrality is like normality: it depends where you come from. Is this an unconditional endorsement of your Anti-cable? no, that would be pretentious, I am no expert. Is this an unconditional endorsement of your cables for my system in my room with my ears" you bet!!!! I am just wondering what I have been listening to all these years, pretty scary." "Your cables won't be reviewed by any major mags, or you may be responsible for putting thousands on unemployment in the cable industry. I cannot wait to resell my $800-a meter cable....well done to say the least. If you need a partner in Canada, let me know, I am in." Pol Rotre, Montreal Canada - No.12) Kicking Cardas in Vermont: "Hi Paul I received the 12" Anti-Cable jumpers a few days ago, and I must admit, they better my Cardas jumpers in everyway. Better separation, quieter background, cleaner sound without being bright, and they are not even broken in yet!! I still need 2 more sets, one of which I will order in the next few days. Thanks Paul, talk to you soon!" __ "Paul, Now I have a complete set of your cables and it has dramatically changed the sound for the better, especially in focus and dynamics, and they are not even broken in yet. In the near future, I will purchase another set to use in a biwire configuration. Thank you for your excellent product and customer service!" Mark Maturo, VT - No.13) Smokin’: "Hi Paul, I have had your Anti-cables in for about 10 days now and man, do they deliver. Since replacing my 12 gauge custom made "garden hose" sized cables there has been massive improvement in sound staging, everything is much more alive, warm and dynamic. (I will keep the name of my old cables confidential due to the fact that they are made by a fellow AudioGon Brother). Suffice it to say that I paid a much loftier price for my former cables and your Anti-Cables absolutely SMOKE them. There is no comparison, Paul you have a breakthrough product on your hands and it has been, and will continue to be, my pleasure to sing their praises to whomever will listen." "Thank you for a great product at such a great price," Bill Benedict, WI - No.14) Smiles from Hong Kong: "Thanks for ANTI-CABLE, the performance is superior than most brand cables, such as Kimber, VDH and Kimber Select; it is more natural, more 3D and less coloration. My friend is deeply impressed by your cable; best regards." Philip Leung, Hong Kong - No.15) Positive Feedback from Canada: "Hi Paul, Got the cables today... While connecting your Anti-Cables to my Sim Audio gear, I must admit, I was not expecting a change from the cables already in my system. I had just finished listening to Jesse Cook with my original cables. Then I replaced the cabling with your Anti-Cables. The result... Clean, Clear, Live Sound that definitely was not heard in my system before, period." "I was ready to spend $700 dollars on a pair of speaker cable... I just do not feel the need anymore. Thank you Paul, your less is more approach works for me." "PS: I might be bi-wiring soon. I will let you know." Carlo Rosica, Canada - No.16) Big Results in the Big Apple: "I decided that it would make sense to give Paul's Anti-Cables a try. What the heck, they're cheap, I ordered a set and - HOLY *$#&!!! I had no idea what a dramatic difference these cables would make. Soundstage opened WAY up this time; highs not only stayed smooth, but EXTENDED and stayed smooth. Now I actually hear the steel strings against the fretboard of an acoustic guitar. The presentation is completely effortless. Response is super-quick, drums have more slam, acoustic bass is more realistic. These cables are incredible - and a 7' set cost me all of $70!!! The most amazing part is, this is after only 30 minutes of listening. I can't imagine what my system will sound like once these babies have a little burn-in time." "Thank you Paul, for dramatically improving my audio system. Your products will be recommended by me to anyone who asks my opinion on this stuff." Chris Ziemer, New York City - No.17) Performs Wonders in the Windy City: "Thanks for the prompt shipment. In a word, these cables are fantastic. They have really opened up my system. Sometime soon, I'll be posting a review of my system in AudioCircle and AudioAsylum. I'll be sure to provide a top recommendation for your cables as the resulting synergy is excellent. Best, Nick" Nicholas Zafran, Chicago IL - No.18) Happy in Hawaii: "I got the Anti-Cables today. first few minutes, and already I can hear more dimensionality and clarity than my present ZuCable's "Julian" speaker cables. Mahalo! (thanks)" Dennis Yanos , Hawaii - No.19) Minnesota Refinement: "Paul, The anti-cables have been a very nice addition. They have definitely helped refine the sound and brought the soundstage into tighter focus. Thanks," Steve Rehnberg, MN - No.20) Bravo from Italy: "Paul, i am an italian customer that have just installed your anticables, I sent you a mail to say you something and that the cables sound good. After some hours of listening that comment seems to me too cold, they sound beautifully (And are very cheaper than some pretentious brands)." "Bravo!"

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.
