Interconnect cable results

From Norway 

This new stuff is amazing – The XLR is brilliant – The sound is more relaxed and I can tell  the soundstage is 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 Eirgile interconnect cable results

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 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. The 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 Mini rig 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 for this wonderful cable – Lou

Hi Paul, Just got your cables and they look excellent – although, whilst the “joins” are neat and sound I think that it would be advantageous to source sleeving which can be “in one piece”  unless there is a very good reason not to which I am missing!

The terminations are very good and the overall “stiffness” of the assembly is ideal for routing and neat installation. Horribly stiff cables might look impressive, but are a nightmare to actually use! I spent much of yesterday, after installing the cables, firstly allowing a few hours to “burn in” and then in the evening actually listening.

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. All the best – Graham

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! – 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, I think the cable is becoming to it’s best level. Now the sound is well balanced, crystal hi end and fat bass I hear out of my speakers. It is way-way more handy to work with, I can place the sounds exactly where I want like never before. I am going to recommend these cables to all my musician friend back in Hungary. I told my father about it who is an old fashioned country musician  he said it’s a “hokus-pokus” WelI can’t wait for him to visit me and run an A\B test to proof the power of these cables. I think I have made the right decision when I purchased  and I am highly satisfied with the quality of sound and your customer care. Warm regards, Matte

Hi Paul – Last night I listened to several vocal jazz pieces by Anna Maria Jopek (a popular Polish jazz singer). Her records are always carefully mastered so the sound may shine on good systems as it does on mine now : ) thanks to your cables to a large extent. 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

“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 – Love it.  Thank you. 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

From Poland

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.Best regards – Tom Lasota, Sanok, Poland

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 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 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

From Lithuania

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

From Lithuania

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

From Lithuania

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

From UK

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.

From UK

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

From Norway

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.

From Norway

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

From USA

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

From UK

Dear Paul, these are the interconnect cable results. I Just got your 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
