Interesting about cable burning in and having the best cables, way back 40 years ago when I first heard this stuff I thought it was all Bollocks for the companies selling you on it. But since then it wasn`t and it does make a difference and thank you for a great cable. Lou
Paul – you are the Man! This new 2 meter interconnect really is the BIZ! Yes you were right and it does make my system sound much better. Everything seem to be bigger somehow and that for me is the best Christmas present ever – Willie
Hi Paul – WOW is an understatement I can hear the key stokes from a Bach harpsichord cd I played first. You are amazing bro, I shall put a review on your web site and will talk to you about your interconnects in the NY in the meantime have a great Xmas and NYE. Talk soon bro – Joe
I am amazed at the difference your speaker cables they literally make our beautiful system sing.
I can highly recommend them to all who appreciate the best sound
Your friend in Sydney
Hello Paul – I would like to congratulate you on the way that you are making your cables as they really do improve the sound in many ways. Last year I bought the 1/4″stereo jack to XLR and it made my system come to life and so I am now letting this new RCA ro mini jack cable settle in. Right from the box it gave so much more information to the music and this is something that I demand when I am audio mixing. mThe list could go on but in essence, while most Hi-End music listening systems are made to sound nice, studio monitors are made to show the opposite. This has to be taken into consideration to understand why I am so happy to hear the “bad stuff” with the help of Perkune. I will recommend the cables to my fellow home studio owners without hesitation as I am convinced it should get a stable spot in the market. Thank yet again for your great cables. Tom Blinda, London, England
Hi Paul – You were saying give it 24 hours bedding in time to get the full benefit, well what a massive difference I am getting instead of the cheap plastic cable and jack plugs I was using . Because I sit at my desk for hours and work I have to have a decent sound set up it makes me work better, are you like that! Play your favorite music while you work. This cable is a 2 meter length with metal jack plugs shielded , the sound coming out my small 15w Minirig speaker is astonishing, I mean it was excellent before, now it`s like how the hell do you get a sound so good coming out such a small cylindrical space well this cable as put it into the stratosphere.
Thank you so much for this wonderful cable – Lou
Paul, I am a happy customer and Love your speaker combination cable. Just got done rocking’ a bit tonight. I found that it drives me to play more precise because you hear more clearly. NICE!!! 🙂
Hi, Paul – after researching online I finally ordered a 3-meter Loudspeaker cable and must say that I couldn’t believe the difference. On my first listen I immediately noticed how the soundstage had opened up. I could really hear each instrument beautifully. The bass felt really tight and clear. I was amazed that by just changing the cables I could hear such a big difference, great website, and support has really opened my eyes.
All the best Jon – London UK
Paul- I Am still completely blown away by the difference in my sound. This has made me focus more on my playing & techniques. Since you can hear so much more of the flavors than what I was hearing before, it motivated me to play so much more precise. Wish I could send you some mp3’s of before & after. Thank you for also being my WA friend & fellow College.
regards – Wayne another happy customer
The initial impression is there was definitely a difference (always a good start) with the balance across the frequencies being the standout difference.
After about an hour, I began to notice this balance changing – at first it was “bass heavy” with a recessed mid-range, but I heard a definite “flattening out” starting to happen.
These changes after about 3-4 hours seemed to settle down (although of course still early days for burning in). It stabilized with the middle frequencies being a bit too far “forward” and so I started to experiment with the digital filters on the DACmagic.
Using a setting other than my “normal preferred” resolved this and across a wide range of material it started to sound quite impressive – in fact, I would judge on par with my bi-amped setup!
During the next few evenings, I will continue the listening which should result in your cables being fairly well “burnt in”. I will then change back to the original cables and settings, at which point I will be able to be a lot more positive with my comments.
Hi, Paul – Thanks man for this guitar amp cable – it is something else – cannot believe how just a cable can make my amp sound so good. Now I will rock till the sun comes up. Maybe I will get the cord for the guitar as well so will be in touch – bye for now.
Hi Paul – Walked back in the door a few hrs ago and settling back into being home. Went down & plugged everything in & played a bit, and seemed to notice quite a difference right from the start. 🙂 The annoying static & buzz is gone. I can hear distinct mids and high that were not very clear before. Had my oldest over for Dinner last Saturday while I was off, and between writing more content, and cooking our meal he even played a bit. He might do a musician’s site, and include a link to your site. Will let you know. Am pre-stripping my truck now, and getting ready to drive 3 hrs to get my load for today, deliver 2 stores and Lord willing make it home to my bed.
I was want to tell you my buddy and I went to meet our friend. This was the first time I was listening to vinyl, and the system was top notch! The speakers were the Anthony Gallo Reference 3.5, with 200 w SS-amp was from MBL. As this was the first time listening to his system and vinyl, we did a lot of listening to come to terms what the Vinyl did or did not to the music and the technical aspects of it.
Is was fun to understand how the difference was in comparison to digital vs analog. The music sounded like is was slower but not exactly. It just took its time to convey the music. Like it was not in a hurry, but just relaxed. Concentrated on the musical aspects. Vinyl has it charm I must admit but sounded like it needed more clarity. Yes, it was cracking in the recordings (and that was fine) but the upper frequency, I noticed it sounded muddy. The Analog LP player was top notch from a company I can’t remember just now, but it’s price range was in the 6000 pounds class.
After we had listened, we switched the speaker cable from his black magic revelation to the Perkune four meter. Right away, the clarity was better in my ears. But not so familiar with his system, I was waiting for he to make the judgments. After just a song or two, He did make some remarks that are sounded good. Kind of vague to what his impression was, I noticed is was an improvement. Perkune rules! Maybe it wasn’t enough time to do the speaker cable it’s justices, but I know it can perform better. Further on, I had to show him my dac (ayre dsd) , and what it could do with digital music. I used Perkune XLR, Perkune power cable, Perkune speaker cable and Perkune USB cable. And He was impressed, but then without real comparison. We listened only for a short time because It was getting late. I hope to bring him over to hear my system and then he will hear the real magic that the Perkune cables can do!!!!!
will be in touch- Eirik
Hi Paul, Last night after work I spent a few hours re-plugging your cables to my old ones and the difference is ridiculous. I am going to throw my old cables away for which I paid over 100 pounds! I wanted to test how things sound and it is complete crap with my original cables compared to how everything sounds with your cables. How I was ever thinking that my mixes were any good I will never know and this is what it is all about making the sound correct. I now want to replace my subwoofer cables so I will need two lengths with XLR to Stereo Jack but will let you know the exact lengths tomorrow after I have measured.
Best regards – Tommy
Hi Paul – We have had some great reviews of the speaker cables by some top-end guys in the industry and now, (finally) Monte is ready to move forward. The next project is to finalize the power cable, then we do the same for the interconnects. At your convenience can you please send 6 sets of interconnect cable and start on its way to me here in the good old USA?. there is no hurry, whenever you have the time. Let me know the price and I will PayPal the bucks to you and hopefully, it will be OK (It shouldn’t but you never know with PayPal). Looking forward to getting things going here –
Hi, Paul! -The cables are really great!
They are more relaxed and I can enjoy my system for what I have accomplished
It’s like I can focus more on listening to my favorite music and nothing sticks out, but allow the soundstage to work together as a whole. The presentation becomes more of what it can convey of the music to you. Very pleasing , I must say. Best buy I ever did with my system. So thanks to you Paul, for giving me the opportunity for this experience Tomorrow I travel to my friend with the big system. Taking with me, Perkune cables! Pictures and review will follow, so stay tuned – all great my friend Eirik.
Hi, Paul – Yes, these four-meter speaker cables are in they own league!
The sound is so inviting, so full, so rich with details, is mesmerizing listening to it!
The beats and rhythm are exceptional to convey the music in the right way. I’m absolutely in love with these speaker cables!! You really have outdone yourself, Paul! It brings all the Perkune cables together. Love the effects. My hi-fi system sounds great!! The best it’s ever done! In all my 6 years building my system, this is the best sound I have heard from my system! Now I’m feeling ready to invite friends and family to show them what a good hi-fi system can bring in terms of sound and music.
I mean, I CAN HEAR EVERYTHING.
The echoes, the micro details, the huge soundstage, the authenticity of instruments! the beats, rhythms and the timing of it! The voice sounds natural and organic
Best regards – Eirik
This new stuff is amazing!! The XLR is brilliant – The sound is more relaxed and I can tell you: the soundstage is so huge!! It’s really opening up. It fills the whole apartment with the sweet sound of music. Voice is more forward and sounds amazing. The right amount of weight and texture. The sound has very good depth and I can hear different accords on tones much better. This has to be the best interconnect! I have ever heard! Everything just seems bigger and better. Even little details shine through! More musical as well! Has Upped the performance of everything in my system and it takes time for me to adjust as well, with the well of new details found. Every track is now even more open and alive. I will leave the cables bedding in for a few hours and I will write again to you soon, but I would like you to send me the new four-meter speaker cables please with a spade connection at the amp end.
Best regards Eirik
My fresh findings are: 1) The depth of the soundstage is well rendered – some of the drumming sound seemed to come from behind my window (like 2 meters behind the baseline) which is a good thing.
1) The depth of the soundstage is well rendered – some of the drumming sound seemed to come from behind my window (like 2 meters behind the baseline) which is a good thing.
2) The positioning of sounds on the soundstage is now much firmer with more air around instruments; no need to make the slightest guess about the whereabouts of a sound.
3) Selectiveness – way better now. I can easily listen to several sounds at the same time without them being muddied or covered by one another.
4) Bass lines are more defined and better controlled.
All of the above strongly depends on CD quality, but when it’s good it’s good.
Hope to give you more insight into my listening experience as it unfolds in weeks to come.
Have a nice day – Best regards – Tomas
Hi, Paul – As I mentioned these cables are astonishing! I heard details I was not accustomed to on my oppo Blu-ray player!! Right out of the box, they play great on the system. The guitar you hear on the different soundtrack is now more alive. The soundstage is huge and massive. The rhythm and beats are good and make the whole experience very enjoyable! Now, the comparison between XLR and RCA- interconnect.
You must know that Ayre favors XLR over RCA. But when that is said, I noticed a couple of things. First, the RCA was dead quiet in between notes. That makes for more focused voice (in /around) instruments were a tad more presented. Because of the blackest background, I have ever “not” heard. Other than that is was on part with XLR. I had to push the volume a bit more with RCA-CABLE, because of the Ayre signal was weaker on the unbalanced vs balanced. I feel the XLR do have the upper hand, but not by much. Either way, I absolutely love this cable. Please send me another cable but with XLR terminations and also another two-meter power cord ASAP
Best regards – Eirik
Hello, Paul, Got the speaker cables and my first impressions are very positive – more detail, more selectiveness, more air around instruments, better rendering of room acoustics, a more tangible positioning of instruments on the soundstage. Everything seems to have calmed down which is why details shine through more easily than before. Depth has been emphasized a bit more profoundly as well. But let them transmit some more current before I pass any definite judgment. Yet I am very positively surprised with the performance as of here & now. I’ll come back with more comments as all virtues unfold over the next couple of days.
Have a nice day. Best regards Tom
Hi Paul, Hope all is well with you and been listening to USB cable a while now, I must say that your USB cable is superior to the stock cable I did have. even my friend did say it was better straight away when I changed the cables.
The sound became clearer and better definition in/around instruments and voices. Sounds more fuller. Less glare you may say. Listening to a Norwegian artist with her great voice
“Maria Mena: homeless” It was like I had turned the volume up just by switching cables. Another great sounding cable from Perkune – Loves it. Thank you, Paul.
My friend and I were watching a movie (same setup as me) and he was using some cheap RCA cable between his Blu-ray player and Ayre AX7. I told him, you got to try Perkune RCA. They will be much better!
So If could send me your best RCA cable, I know he will be very surprised at what he has been missing. – best regards, Eirik
Hi Paul, I just received the four-meter speaker cable and I am amazed at how much better it sounds than the three-meter that I got from you last year. It has more air and space and the instruments are clearer. Also, all the instruments are separate from each other. This is great work my friend and thanks so much for what you have done to help me with my sounds – rock on!!! Regards Rom
Good morning Paul, I am writing to share with you a bit of my fresh enthusiasm after I implemented the changes suggested by you yesterday. I am practically blown away by the overall sound improvement found in THE SAME system. The depth of the soundstage has greatly improved together with the positioning of all instruments which is now much firmer and easy to pin down by ear. Finally I can relax and enjoy the holographic sound I have always craved for. The Audio Physic Step 25 speakers have spread their wings in the end. O.k. I am going a little overboard, but this is close to what I am currently feeling. So maybe I am gonna buy your speaker cables in 1-2 months from now for further improvement and In the meantime I’ll just enjoy the newly found sound of my system.
Hello Paul, The first time I plugged your cables in I sat quietly expecting some magic. Something to make my jaw drop. I sat there before playing first loss-less files and my project files and really expected to hear some big difference. But the first time all I heard was a wider and deeper image of the music track as a whole. I thought is That all? Oh boy, was I wrong! after they warmed up they came to life and woke me up!
Hi, my friend Paul.
I’ve received your cables today. I’ve connected it to my system and what can I say??? I was little disappointed!!! 🙁 . But after few hours… the difference was amazing, as you said 🙂 !!!. Your cables are amazing and you are master of cables 🙂 !!!
Best regards Tomek.
If you will in Poland I invite you and your family to my apartment, You must listen to it!!! 🙂
Hi Paul, your Interconnect offers a vast improvement over my silver cables. I used it from the DAC output to the preamp in and the difference in bass detail is phenomenal! On one track what I thought was a solid single note is actually three separate notes played very quickly. I do not detect any loss in treble, but again, there is more information presented that was just not there before and it seems overall more glass-like or smoother than the silver cables were sounding so thank you – David Askew
Hi Paul, Late here 11:10 pm. I hooked up my system with the new power cord for the Preamp. Yes, it does sound better. Background music a little cleaner and Soundstage is better too. The biggest difference was when you set up my speaker system. Love the Sound!! And dynamics better too!! Clarity was there after you tweaked my system. Yes, it sounds like Melody Gardot (singer) is really performing in my House!! Thank you!! Your Interconnects and power cable are very good!! Well, you have a nice day!, THX Lan
Hi, Paul just finished a 2-hour audition of the power cable. I used it to power my CAL CD player which I run thru a Theta DS Pro-Prime DAC, so all I was changing was the power cable to the disc spinner. So, I find it difficult to express exactly what I experience different from a stock power cable but this I know, I do not want to go back to the stock cable! Yours is clearly superior in many respects and if I had to put it into two words I would say detail, clarity overall superior soundstage, but then that’s several words. My wife Loretta, picked your cable in a double-blind test using the same track and sat enthralled for a further 30 minutes listening to tracks that she plays now and then, quite happy just to sit still and enjoy the music. Good job Paul – Peter
Hi, Paul – it’s been an interesting experience and I know you have been a very good customer of mine in the past. I would say that there is no doubt you know how to make a cable and one that performs at its price point.In our system tests, the speaker cable fared better than the interconnects and against its peer group (certainly compared to other cables we sell), the performance was on a par – in some cases just different, rather than better if that makes sense – Kind regards – Mark Cargill
Hello Paul, Great speaker cable and I will keep it but found the power cord a bit too sharp so will return and keep my Shunyata so will see you at 6 this evening Best Regards, Igor
Hi Paul, as you know I am using the top end cables but I must say that your power cord has a very good sound and fits well to my system and I am impressed, also, the price you are selling for is very reasonable and is a third of what I am paying so you will do very well I would think. Best regards Ruslan
Hi Paul, New power cord which you gave me works better ( of course!) than the one attached to the amplifier so I will keep your new power cord. I want to keep also XLR/RCA cable too, as results are good – I don’t know if it is subjective or objective, but I think I hear the difference between old WHITE interconnect (which became my reference for these tests) and XLR/RCA interconnect. I would say that this cable is transparent. Hope to see you at the weekend Regards, Dmitry
Hi Paul your power cable is really good and what I think that it needs better promotion among audiophiles and think you should try to sell it through Audiogon?…..and should think about visualization i.e. print some name, trademark on it… Best regards, Vaidas
Hi, Paul How is going? The great session we had. What would be the best possible price for your speaker cables 2×3 meter? I need 2 pairs same as we listened to at your place. Also, a price for a 5 meter set? Your power cable is something not from this planet it is stunning! Regards Paulas
Hi Paul, the new cord has been playing a couple of hours and I been away. When I now got back, I noticed the sound in my system had changed. What I heard were, even more, details!!! I absolutely love this cord! it’s more musical as well, and Ayre does need all of it to sound great! More testing is needed, so I will write back soon with more info Best regards, Simon.
Hi, Paul – I have received the speaker cables and been running them all morning but right from the start everything changed and my wife says everything has become organic!! I can hear things that I have never heard before and it is like you have removed a blanket from my system. Regards Rom
Hi Paul, I am doing great and hope you are too – Cables are bedding in great! Still surprised how much detail the cables are able to reveal in the music. On my CD player, I noticed several things when I compared to my other interconnects (Transparent balanced Musiclink ultra). That was that your interconnects was more silent and, therefore, you could hear more of the nuances of the instruments. More musical, Better focus in the vocals, so you could hear more nuances in the voices. Really good cables, the best I have heard. And will recommend to others to try these Cables. I enjoy every minute I hear my music – Best regards Eirik.
I’m happy owner of three power cables purchased from Paul and it was very interesting for me to try speaker cable and RCA interconnection cable build using same new technology. I should say that new cables exceed my expectations. First, I connected speaker cables instead of Arkana Aequilibrium bass became tighter, overall imaging more transparent, and airy. Comparing with Audioquest K2 “white speaker cable” has a clearer high end and better soundstage while keeping full bodied, not boomy low end. Next me of the Audioquest Sky – the effect was clearly noticeable and not prominent – higher dynamic range, cable is absolutely silent. Regards, Dmitry Novikov
Hi, Paul Love the new cord! have barely got to test it, but it really makes a difference. SMOOTH SOUND and better detail/resolution. This is from wall socket to line filter. Tried direct to my CD, but so far I liked to have the cord this way. Will do more testing…
As for the suggestions, thank you. Will look into some of them. Right now I`m having trouble with rooms acoustics but will buy more power cords from you and will become a good customer Best regards – Augusta
Hi Paul, Been testing your XLR interconnects. Now I understand the synergy this cable have! Right out of the box, the sound became clearer and after a while more bass and focus in/around instruments. In some recordings, the echo became almost too much. Love this interconnects! I must say I’m really impressed. There is so much snake oil in the hi-fi biz when it comes to cable I feel. Looking forward to hearing a lot more from your cables. regards Eirik
Hi, Paul – The new interconnects brings more fullness to the music. And the soundstage is better. I listen to a lot of soft jazz. Melody Gardot, Madeline Peyroux, Michael Franks, Suzanne Vega. Also, I like Grover Washington “wine light”, Larry Carlton, Acoustic Alchemy, David Benoit, DSanborn, Boney James. Also some Latin Jazz…Astrud Gilberto, and Rock n Roll. FYI – I will be back at end of month and may want speaker cable and more cables for my movie room so I need to do measurements and then will be able to sort things out – but I am a very happy customer THX, Lan
Dear Paul, Just got the RCA cable and removed my Frey2 and cannot believe the difference – I thought my Frey was good but it sounds flat and dead compared with yours – How can this be and yours is right out the box. I just do not understand it as the Frey was over 1,000 pounds and your cable is a fraction of the price that I paid. Please send my your 3.meter speaker cable ASAP and I will send money right now for it –regards Rom
I purchased a set of interconnects, power cable and speaker cables. Paul had a money back guarantee and the price were right. He also helps me arrange my speakers in my music room to get the best possible sound. After sending. Paul photos and measurement of my room. Over a period of 3 adjustments, I auditioned my system and the sound was so much better. I would say performance improved about 20-25%! The sound stage, clarity and depth of the music improved. I am very satisfied with Paul has done for me!!! I recommend him Highly!! Lance.
Hi Paul, These cables are huge magic after you listen to you want to cry of indescribable fantastic emotions Paul – thank you so much, Keiko as I am a happy customer of yours.
Paul, All I can say is Yahweh H. Buddha on a stick….if I thought my system was analytical and detailed before yesterday, I was wrong. Compared to now, it is like a different system altogether. Good recordings make my skin crawl because they are so real, bad recordings are almost intolerable, they are that harsh. My Enya recordings that I was convinced never contained any frequency about 1.5 KHZ are now so bright that they are quite edgy. Matapedia by Kate and Anna McGarrigle is now so open that it gave me goosebumps. Loretta is not so keen, though, once again we did the Lost Boys test and while she fully admits there is much more detail, it was not as enjoyable. Too much detail me thinks. I, on the other hand like it, and if the recording sucks, this system will let you know it.Just moving the TV back four inches opened up a world of detail that was not there before. I really would like to get rid of the A/V gear altogether, but it just is not possible right now, so I have to live with it, but that I can do. I attach photos of the after from my listening position, still cannot quite get the pans fully in the image, but you get the picture I think. Thanks for your help with that, it has made a huge difference. THX David
Hi Paul, The boominess of the room is better, it seems. The positioning of instruments is better like this than when the speakers had more room. To be blunt, I am shocked by your ability to guide this far…I feel like I may have finally found the sweet spot! I had not considered how directional these speakers could be – it is true, these are for the selfish audiophile as there is only a single great seat! – WARMEST regards Monte
Hi Paul, I am a good customer and just want to say how impressed I am with what you have done for me over the past couple of months and I have all your cables and thought there was nothing else that could be done to make my sound better apart From buying new amps and speakers but you again have proved me wrong. You are a magician, the way that you can look at my set up and have me move things a few inches here and there is unbelievable how this can effect the sound in my room and your knowledge is better than my computer and microphone that I was using to set things up so again very big thank you and I will recommend you to everyone I meet – regards Rom.
Hi Paul, I want to say, thank you for your help in setting up my system and now sounds the best I have ever heard and you have a big talent that is for sure! I will certainly tell my friends who have sound systems about what you have done for me as I am impressed, to say the least – Best regards, Vaidas
Hi, Paul – I want to thank you for the way my system is sounding and by simple movement has brought new details and Imaging. I think there is a market for setting up a sound system like you did for me to arrange to get maximum performance so thanks for the speaker placements tips –THX Lan a happy customer
