I really didn't want the Anti-cables to win - they're clangy and cumbersome and not thick and sexy with impressive gold connectors like the real speaker cables. Well, if I bought speaker cable for the way they look, the Anti-Cable would have been in last place in my book but if you are after cable for the way they sound (or don't sound), there is absolutely no comparison. How could I go back to the grunge of the other cables once I heard the clarity and imaging of the Anti-Cables?" "The pinpoint imaging, both side to side and front to back is uncanny. You can tell when the musicians move slightly. Good top end and solid tight bottom end with the best middle you could hope for. Clangy and cumbersome? Yeah, but once you get them where you want them, you can have the assurance that you have the best speaker cables, I mean "wire," anywhere near their price. These are so incredible, I will have to try the interconnect cables to see if they make just as big a difference." Greg Litsey, WA - No.92) The Absolute Sound did... "Hello, I've been listening for a few days and the speaker cables are great........... You were not kidding............ hopefully one of the big magazines will take a listen and review. Keep up the good work. Thanks" Leslie Van Trease, CA - No.93) The Absolute Sound Saved Me $500: "Paul - These things are FANTASTIC. It's like someone windexed my speakers. They are good all over, but particularly in resolving low volume bass, quiet plucked bass in small jazz groups and such. They've also got much finer definition on large orchestral works with much better individual instrument separation. I'm not going to write a big review, but I am very impressed." "The timing was excellent too. I was about to drop $500 bucks for someone else's cables when I read the sidebar in TAS. You're going to have more business than you know what to do with. Thanks again!" Greg Simmons, PA - No.94) Soundstage Reviewer: "Judy and Paul, The Anticables arrived over the weekend. They replaced a bi-wire set of thick, heavy duty Audioquest Crystals that weighed a ton. The accompanying literature mentioned allowing them at least a 100 hours of burn in time but I am of a slightly different theory when it comes to breaking in any component. I do not discount break-in, but, in my opinion, any improvements in replacing electronics or cables in an audio chain should be immediately apparent. And in the case of your Anticables, it certainly was. From here on I can look forward to the sound only improving over time." "Here are some of the marked improvements that were immediately obvious over my prior speaker cables. Build quality. In one word, excellent! My Audioquests are terminated with spades as are your Anticables but for the first time in GOD knows how long, I was able to achieve a snug fit and hand tighten the binding posts without muttering superlatives or using any tools. A source of aggravation for many and a great start for me, I thought." "Next up, the sound. Highs were considerably more extended and airy than what I was used to hearing. Details began to emerge that evidently were veiled before. Also noticeable right off the bat was the marked increase in palpability and transparency. It was especially evident with vinyl playback. Listening to Belafonte Live at Carnegie Hall, I was actually able to discern the singer turning around on stage to face different sections of the audience. Very impressive, indeed." "Moving along, Soundstage. Where before it would lean more to the left, is now locked dead center. All this time, I have been thinking my preamp was to blame for this. Imagine my surprise when I realized its been my cables all along. Thankfully, the Anticables have corrected this anomaly." "And finally, the bass. WOW!!.....listening to Elvis Costello and the Attractions Greatest Hits, the bass riffs on Track 2 from the guitar and the drums literally made me sit up and smile. Taut, well defined, 'thump your chest' bass that I don't recall my Audioquests ever producing." "As always, anytime a change is made in source components or cables, things can go good or bad in a hurry. I am happy to say, in the case of the Anticables, the improvements were more than subtle in my system. An excellent investment and tweak on the cheap!" "I have just joined the Soundstage Network as a Reviewer and I will ask Marc Michelson, our Editor, if I could review the Anticables professionally for the magazine. I will let you know. All the best." Mack A. Khan, GA - No.95) On First Listen, I Did Not Like Them: "I have had a three foot bi-wire pair of your cables for some time now. I have had them in and out of the system a couple of times. On first listen, I did not like them....sounded metallic or something, and my Classe DR 8 solid state amp absolutely did not work with them.....or so I thought." "At some point I completed repairs on my Curcio/Dyna MK3 tube amps. I then replaced my normal Kimber 4tc biwire pair with your cables." "At first I, again, did not like them. Sound almost harsh. But I left them in and what do you know? The more I listened the more I realized the Kimbers were masking some detail throughout the spectrum. I readjusted the vta (SME 309/van den Hul MC 10) and what I perceived as harshness was VTA too high." "I am now convinced. I hear more detail everywhere, but especially in the middle frequencies. And the sound is more palpable, more alive. Pretty amazing stuff. I have had the Kimbers in my system from the crossover box to the amps for many years and had gotten acustomed to the sound. Never realized the VTA was so high, just adjusted it till it sounded good and listened away." "Hope you are selling the daylights out of your cables. Can't tell you the last time I made this much improvement in my system. Thanks" Louis Sohn, TN - No.96) Telepathic Communication: "I received and installed my new anticables yesterday, after your prompt delivery. Thank you for the great service." "I used them to replace a set of Monster 1.4s biwire cables which by the way sounded magnificent. I am using a Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista 300 amplifier and Magnepan 3.6R speakers. The sound quality was instantly, significantly better than before and much better than I had expected. A bargain to be sure! Communication between amp and speakers can now only be referred to as telepathic. It is as if there is no wiring at all. There now seems to be absolutely no lost sonic information." "Thank you very much for helping to make an already great system into one which is as fine as I have ever heard." Kendall Newsome, IL - No.97) An Astonishing Value in Switzerland: "Hi Paul, You give me the perfekt advice. I find that these cables are an astonishing value and they have replaced my Black Orpheus with the Nola Signature." "I have listen several hours your cables and I am very surprised. I think the cables are good, perhaps excellent ! I am hesitating a bit on which side to stay !! My system are Nola Viper Signature with the Black Orpheus cables which I have exchanged against yours (in bi-wire). On several disks, I find the anticables with no doubt better, for examples: Mahler Symphonies with MTT Bach Sonata with Julia Fisher Requiem of Mozart and Verdi with Harnoncourt "Timbres of the instruments are very good, soundstage great (similar as with the Black Orpheus), excellent tonal balance and finally the sound is very natural, effortless (I can listen louder than before without problem). But I find a problem with voices which are very distinct, though lacking perhaps something in palpability, as if some details wasn't there. I am not absolutely sure, I will make more tests and retry my old cables. In some way I am very pleased with the cables, and sometimes I find that something is lacking. Sometimes I have this feeling not inly with voices ! I can not say that details are missing. I hear the ones I usually hear (breath, mechanism on the piano). I will tell you the final story later ... (sorry for my poor english)- Regards" Jann Weiss, Switzerland - No.98) Breathing New Life into My Existing System: "Hi Paul, Got the cables today and hooked them up into my system, and WOW! You weren't kidding that they make a noticable difference! I have a modest system (Luxman 3045 Receiver, Cambridge Audio CD4SE CD Player, Monarchy 22A DAC, Audio Alchemy DTI, and PC-60 Speakers -- definately nothing high-end) and I can really notice an opening of the sound stage, with a smoother sound!!!!! You've saved me mucho money in upgrades by breathing new life into my existing system with your anti-cables. I thank you and so does my wife; who thinks I spend too much on my system as it is. ;-). Cheers" Karl Zimmerman, CA - No.99) Short but Sweet: "Got the cables. Man is that an improvement!" Aaron Garrett, MA - No.100) Less is Truly More: "Dear Paul, Just a quick note to say that I've had the cables and jumpers in my system for a couple of weeks now and I'm really very happy with them. I have a singularly untweaked system: Minimax Cd player, Antique Sound Labs MG SI 15DT tube amp, and a pair of Mission speakers. I like the simple straightforward approach of the anticables; sometimes less is truly more. Cheers and all the best" Vasant Kaiwar, NC ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Anti-Cables can be purchased at any length for $10/foot for a stereo set.

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.
