    Item Description

    The Anti-Cables can be purchased at any length for $10/foot for a stereo set. For example, a 6 foot stereo set (for 2 speakers) is only $60.

    The stereo set comes with each speaker wire pair, factory twisted and fully terminated with 8 of our excellent new solid copper spades (different then shown in the photo), that has a stepped opening that fit both the standard 1/4" (6mm), and the larger 5/16" (8mm) binding posts. Optional Banana plugs terminations or bare wire ends (unterminated) come at no extra charge.

    Try them 30 days risk free. If you decide they don't sound more like real music and less like speaker cables then what you are using, call us for return authorization for a full refund.

    The Anti-Cable Challenge: If you purchased a copycat looking set of red speaker wires that claim they are better, buy my Anti-Cables and within 30 days you can return either my Anti-Cables for full credit or the copycat cables to me for half credit. I am so sure your system will sound better with my Anti-Cables, I am willing to buy back the equal length copycat cables from you at half price, so you can enjoy the better sounding Anti-Cables. Please specify you are taking "The Anti-Cable Challenge" when you place the order to qualify. To date, the comparison has gone 100% in favor of the Anti-Cables with every customer that has taken on the challenge. I invite you to discover the music hidden in your system.

    ---------------------- Here are AntiCable testimonials number 131-140 ---------------------

    No. 131) More Transparent, Neutral and Open Sound Stage:

    Hello Paul - I recently bought a set of Anti-Cables and I am still in the evaluating phase (cables have about 80 hours on them). I am 90% certain I'll keep them. My reference is a pair of French cables, simple stuff, a bit like the DH Labs - silver over copper wire, twisted pair, TEFLON PTFE insulation and black PVC outer jacket. Your cables are more transparent, neutral and my sound stage has opened up.

    No. 132) Off the Cable "Merry-go-Round”:

    Paul, I felt it was time to give you my personal experience with your cables. Back in January I ordered your speaker cables and a few weeks later ordered your interconnects.

    Two very positive things have come out of this experience. First a big thank you for getting me off the cable "merry go round" Let me explain I have tried the expensive Virtual Dynamics, Cardas Reference, MITs, Transparents, Mapleshade, and Nordost and your cables are so much better in my 2 channel tube system. I am done seeking for the real sound that some of these cables claim and tired of cables coloring the sound. You are not kidding about the 3 d sound and realism these cables can present in an audio system.

    Secondly, I have learned to be patient in selecting and listening to your cables. There has been much talk of these cables especially your interconnects needing many hours to really blossom. I have to admit they are right, although they sound good out the box they really show their true sound after 500 hrs.. Which is not a bad thing because you need to be patient with these cables and you will be rewarded with incredible realism that is so "live" and real sounding that the other night I could have sworn Eric Clapton, The Eagles, and Fleetwood Mac were in my listening room! Your cables have allowed me to just sit back and listen to the MUSIC and not the equipment. I can finally experience a huge soundstage so much that my floor standing speakers just vanish and the musicians take over.

    To say I am happy is an understatement. If people have any doubts I will gladly extend an invitation for them to come to my home and listen for themselves, on second thought they should just order a pair and find out for themselves. I strongly believe they will not be disappointed. Thank you,

    Peter Camperos, CA

    No.133) Spent Well Over 10 Times More with Far Less Satisfaction:

    Dear Paul and Judy, I am writing to let you know how happy I am with your anticable speaker wires. They are amazing. I do not want to say negative things about any other company. Only how positive I am that these are an ultimate best buy. I have spent well over 10 times more with far less satisfaction. This must be my year for amazing finds. I purchased the truly amazing Altmann B.Y.O.B. amp and Attraction DAC in January and have been loving music in a way I almost forgot one could. Your wires were the perfect addition to a system which is all about tonal accuracy and amazing rhythm and pace. Thank you so very much. Blessings to you both,

    Andrew Carey, FL

    No. 134) The Cleanest, Clearest I've Ever Heard:

    I realize it took me a while to email you but I'm finding it harder to pull myself away from listening to music. This is the cleanest, clearest I've ever heard these speakers, I'm hearing background music that I thought could only be heard on my HD650's. I imagine your interconnects have an equally profound effect. I'm kicking myself for recently spending $250.00 on a half meter length of Audionote Lexus. Again, thank you both for keeping my Hobby affordable.

    No. 135) Holly Cow!

    Dear Speltz's, All this hype is true! I actually heard entire instrument that i never heard before and the sound is warm and smooth and the bass is tight and clear. All this improvement on a system that comprise of Krell 200 watt class A and bryston 4B STamp, krell active crossover and preamp and CD plus martin logan monolith 3 . How a simple thing like a wire can improve a high end system that cost over $30,000 is beyond my imagination! Holly Cow! Great job!

    Roy Wong, NV

    …left you a good feedback for the reason that the wires WORK!!!!! WOW !!!!i have heard Fourplay's CD 100 times and your wires send signal to my martin logan that i have never heard before and what use to be a group of fast played notes is now many separate notes played fast!!!! i cannot wait for the interconnect, you might have saved me ten thousand dollars by not having to buy a new mark levinson amp that i was planning, my Krell is just fine , i mean just great now!

    Thanks again, Roy

    No. 136) No Other Can Deliver Equal Goods:

    Paul, Your discovery has made my system's sound possible, because I am convinced there is no other that can deliver equal goods. The latest contesters who failed the test are Cardas Golden Reference, and Jena Labs SCs. The Jena was the best of the two, but it still fielded a faint fizz that overlaid the signal on my ribbon speaker system. It had the effect of giving female singers the cold.

    No. 137) Open mind = Happy hears:

    O.K., the anti-cables arrived yesterday. Impressively simples to see, so, I unpacked them skeptically, twisted them as you instructed and connected the two pairs biwiring my Focus speakers. And... put one critical CD, press play and heard the sound. My impression? At last only 2 seconds, out of the box, I was no more skeptical. They sounded as advertised: Better much better than several cables priced 10 or 20 times the anti-cables I had owned.

    They are not perfect, so, I’m at the break-in process for a better judgment. I feel they presented a good tonal balance, tight bass, extended and still very focused high frequencies, and correct mids. No grain at all, impressive dynamics and live realism. After to hear them to sound, I’m thinking about there are theories to learn about.

    For 10 times the price, you can’t get a better sound easily.

    At my system they are debutants. The only negative I found, is the lack of a bit of sweetness in the mids. Just for it, I’m breaking-in them. I hope, that maybe they will change to better, and will lost some edges in the mids area, to acquire a bit of more relaxed sound. Lets wait for about 100 hours, and lets to hear the differences with other set-ups than twisted. But by now, I only can to say: Very impressive experience. Good work!

    No. 138) Music Comes Alive:

    Paul, Please add me to your list of satisfied customers (or shall I say, Blown Away!) customers.

    Wow! Amazing Cables! Music comes alive with such a crystal clear high end. Vocals are so articulate now. Truly incredible!

    I wholeheartedly recommend them! Wishing You the Best,

    Coby Utterback, OH

    No. 139) There's Nothing Between You and the Performers:

    Dear Paul and Judy--- A note to tell you that the Anti-speaker cables I ordered this past fall for my Magnepan 1.4's have replaced my Tara Labs Space and Time cables--- I love the sound!! My wife said "There's nothing between you and the performers". Thanks and a peaceful day to you!!

    No.140) Cymbal Timber Differences are Amazing:

    Received the cables yesterday, got them wired up and within an hour I noticed improved midrange clarity on vocals, guitar chords, bells are “rounder”…the highs are especially well defined now. I hearing cymbal brushes and hits I barely noticed before. I do not recall hearing the different timbre of the cymbals…amazing…

    Never had truly exotic cables, have tried various Monster and most recently used Transparent Audio products. I have M-L Aerius I’s…and for those who have and like these types of speakers….the cables really tighten up and clean up the sound well. Keep up the good work!

    The Anti-Cables have now been awarded The Absolute Sound's Editors Choice Award five years in a row (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, & 2010), which means they are considered to be "the best of the best". 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. SK
