"Turns out your cable is better than either of the others I had been using (OTA wire and OCOS cable). It is better in the bass, in terms of transparency and control. Having taut control over the woofer is the way to get the best bass response. The midrange is as transparent as I have heard, and the top end manages to also be transparent and yet not irritating, but rather natural sounding, which is a welcome surprise to me since I would rather have a dull or rolled off treble than too much. So, your cable manages to some how, have it all. It would be nice if it were more like regular wire, in terms of not being so stiff, but it is manageable, thank you very much. All the best." Stew Glick, NY - No.52) Finally Enjoying the Music: "After years of using a variety of big-buck electronics and speakers, I decided that I wanted to get away from the cost and complexity. I wanted simple...but I wanted musical! Can they co-exist? Is it possible to purchase (as you say) "high performance, low-cost" gear and still have the "goosebumps"? After owning my new system awhile, I began thinking that I had made a mistake! Oh, the speakers sounded great, and the amp had that SET presence, but something was missing. So, the cable hunt began as I began trying to dial-in the sound with various interconnects and speaker cables. The selection of interconnects was resolved quickly with a pair of solid silver wires, but the speaker cables were more elusive! I tried many...MIT, silver, Nordost, CAT5 cable, Monster, Kimber Kable...they all had good points, but something was still missing." "Then, one day, on Audiogon, I see your ad, and think, "These sound simple enough...and cheap enough...heck, why not?" The Anti-Cables arrived, were installed and three songs later, I realized that I was hearing a remarkable product! The synergy was there! And, oh, that soundstage! Instruments were separated, side-to-side and front-to-back, like never before, while retaining the clarity and frequency extremes! I began digging through my albums and CD's with gusto, no longer caring whether I had the fattest cables or the newest model! I was finally enjoying the music for the first time in a long time! These are keepers! So, thank you for a simple, high-performance, low-cost product that does what you say! And to anyone who is looking for great speaker cables at an affordable price, my advice is to try Paul's Anti-Cables! I did! I know! You won't be disappointed!" Jim Cress, PA - No.53) Wife Approved: "The performance of these cables is so good that I feel almost obligated to comment further, and thank you for dreaming up this product." "Nearly every aspect of the sonic picture was enhanced after I installed your cables. The improvement was so noticeable that my ultimate audio critic, my wife, commented on how she preferred the systems new sound. Imagine her surprise when I told her the price of the cables, she thought they were the $1200 pair I had been wanting to buy! Thanks" Dan Waskiewicz, MN - No.54) Multi-Channel Match: "Upon seeing your cables in place, one of my buds asked- "what wire are you using these days . . coat hanger wire?". Your wire does look suspiciously like coat hanger wire. Regardless, I noticed an improvement in the high frequency range with the first thing I played. Gary Chang's score for the movie "Under Siege" opens with some percussive strikes and cymbal smashes that sound extremely sharp and clean with your cable with excellent decay. I observed no transient hardness but did hear a touch of sibilance not heard with the Kimber 4PR that I replaced. Let me be clear (no pun intended), this sibilance is very delicate and sweet sounding and does not call undue attention to itself. In fact, the treble sounds gentle but you wouldn't want to say soft because resolution is so good." "A short time later, Steven Seagal and his mates are fooling around in the ship's galley and very distinct voices are coming from all over the place in three dimension. The quality and depth of bass I am getting is also an improvement over the Kimber. Somehow, it sounds purer. The stringed score in "The Thin Red Line" is soft and poignant and made more palpable by the thin red cable! Enough already . . I'm a fan! Sincerely" Jim Goulding, TX - No.55) Awesome: "Received the speaker cables today and they sound awesome! Thanks so much! Take care" Geoff Hardcastle - No.56) Easily Saved a Grand: "Just received the anti-cables today. I just ordered them two days ago. Great service. I have been listening to several new cables, then found your ad on audiogon. I was about to spend $1200.00 on another set of cables. These cables are better than any set I listened to, more bass, excellent mid range, wider sound stage, crisp highs. I am very imprested. Thank You Very Much!" Mike Newman, CA - No.57) Best I "Never" Heard: "After twenty hours of listening session, i can tell you that your cables are the best that i never hear, include MIT, transparent, Audioquest, Fadel. I'm very happy. Thank you for your fantastic product. Best Regards" Franck Lafage, France - No.58) Bottom Line: "I've been comparing your anti-cables to my $500/pr and $1000/pr cables. Yes, there are differences. Bottom line, I'm keeping the anti-cables in my system. Thanks!" Arnie Sirlin, NY - No.59) Great Match with Magggies: "Thanks for the cables Paul - they sound great and have added some additional bass response to my Mag 12's. Thanks for the great service and the fantastic cables." Alan Sanders, Canada - No.60) Excellent in South Africa: "Received the cables about a week ago....it has replaced my Audience Au 24 in my system. Excellent! Great cable!

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.
