Interconnect cables

Hi Paul,

I hope this message finds you well. I couldn’t wait to share my excitement with you regarding the recent addition to my audio setup – the Matrix Air interconnect cables. It’s as if Christmas arrived early this year as I sit here, basking in the remarkable transformation it has brought to my listening experience. I’ve integrated the Matrix Air cable into my system, connecting it seamlessly from my Gold Note PH-10 Phono Amp XLR, Naim Nac 272 RCA Preamp, Naim Nap 300 DR to my PMC Fact 8 floor-standing speakers. The impact was immediate and profound. The transparency and expanded soundstage have unveiled a level of detail in my music that I hadn’t experienced before.

Currently indulging in an Analogue Productions pressing of “The Wonderful Sounds of Female Vocals,” every note resonates with newfound clarity. The piano in Diana Krall’s “A Case of You” possesses an exquisite realism – the hammer hitting the strings, the nuances of her breath, and the tactile sensation of the keys being played. The overall soundstage, from tightened bass notes to the ethereal highs of the vocals, is nothing short of breathtaking. Jennifer Warnes’ “Ballad of Runaway Horse” feels like a live performance, with her presence right in front and center, filling the room.

Having previously provided testimonials, I am once again overwhelmed by the Matrix Air’s transparency and detail. It literally transported me to my sweet spot in the listening chair, where I found myself immersed for hours on end. In essence, Christmas indeed came early for me this year with the Matrix Air Interconnect cable. Paul, I extend my heartfelt appreciation to you for yet another exceptional product. It has fully unleashed the potential of my audio system, and I eagerly anticipate many more immersive listening sessions.Thank you for your dedication to delivering products that redefine the audio experience. Simply amazing and Warm regards, Bill Long, Canada


Hello Paul and just want to say how pleased I am with my Interconnect cables. And how my system is now sounding. And your cables certainly have done a great job. It seems like there is more of everything in the music and the quality have really improved big time. I know that Bose are not the easiest of speakers to do things with. But, your cables have just brought out more than I could ever imagined. And I will continue to use your cables. Thank you – Sudakar, Oman

Hi Paul and the XLR Reference Cable which is an upgrade from the PERKUNE Air Dream RCA 2M interconnect from my Gold note PH 10 Phono preamp to my Naim Nac 272 Preamp.  I am a self-admitted Vinyl guy through and through, I love the warmth and purity of the analogue sound as many of you can relate to. These cables arrived with much anticipation given I have never experienced the XLR world before.  The cables from the get-go are presented in a gorgeous aluminium case with lots of padding and a PERKUNE authentication card. 

The cables themselves have real weight to them and are in my mind works of art visually! Now if you are at all familiar with Naim, they have a specific analogue input to accommodate either RCA or their own phono stages.   In this configuration, which Paul sorted out, I have connected the XLR from my Gold note PH10 to my Nac 272 RCA analogue input utilising conversion adaptors. 


So now the sound right out of the case…..caught me off guard just how transparent these cables are so much so I had to adjust the PH10 to accommodate just how efficient and open they are.  Once I  adjusted the load and gain on the PH10 I settled in by listening to Patrica Barber – Cafe’ Blue, which is a great standard for both vocal and instrumentation. For me, music is all about EMOTION and how that is portrayed not only from the artist but how it is presented through our systems to the point it all disappears and you are left with just the soundstage presentation. And have to say the addition of the XLR cable has brought that emotion to the forefront by simply broadening the soundstage.
The instrument placement and vocals that make you feel like the artist is right in front more so than ever before!  Once again, I am very familiar with my system and this addition has increased the transparency, accuracy and the soundstage that instils that EMOTION! I can’t say enough about this cable combination and the XLR is the icing on the cake….simply put “magical”.  The XLR has opened the signal path between the PH10 and the 272 bringing out the mids, highs and bass to another level!!!  Paul, you have done it again, just an amazing addition to what is already a fantastic system! Bill Long, British Columbia 
It has been such a tremendous experience to be able to listen to these new Inconnects!! I don’t know how you do this, time and time again. But it blows my mind just how good you are making these XLR interconnects sound, Paul!!  Once you have heard what’s possible with Perkune XLR reference II, you can’t go back to anything else. The experience grips you so hard, your mind is melded with the music! 
Truly a masterpiece. And, I like the design of these cables very much, as they are sleeker and have some unique design connections! But the best is the sound!
I first tested the Perkune Supreme XLR for the base of reference. These are good on their own. Clear, good separation in instruments and lovely sound on the vocals. 
The emotional atmosphere that was created in one of the soundtracks, was like it enveloped me. This was a first for me to experience, and not only did it do that, but it had one different organic-like rhythm/beats to accompany that.  It was true then I understood the greatness of these new XLR interconnects! totally mesmerised of what I was experiencing, I focused further on vocals. Best Audiophile Interconnect, The vocals were beautifully rendered, and many of the soundtrack I was listening to, got this feeling of closeness to the performer.
And like you were closer them to somehow. Maybe it was the ultra-high quality of details that happened, but my goodness. I could have sworn I was at a live concert when I sat and listened to my favourite bands. The realism is on a whole other level!!  Fantastic to say it mildly!! Best Audiophile Interconnect
After listening to the new XLR interconnect, I feel like a have been visiting the other world. Because It is beyond, that I thought possible for audio performance. And what impact cables can have! I can’t thank you enough, Paul, for keep inspiring to make such excellent craftsmanship that is a masterpiece! Best from Eirik, Norway 

Hi Paul, And these are the Interconnect cable results. I am testing the XLR Supreme and the XLR reference in connection on my friends sound system. And, immediately, I could spot the difference. The text is better, having more detail and blacker background! The clarity now is stunning, and bass is more profound and also has more feature to it. Every nuance in the way the rhythm presented is better—more depth to the ambience in the recordings. And, the quality of sound has this softness to it – I love it, and the music is just so incredibly rich and fluid – Olgerts, Finland

I sat and listened to a couple of tracks that are my “go-to” through the stock original Ethernet cable.  It took me a little while to do this due to the time for that LF driver get seated and broken in. And once I replaced the original Ethernet cable with the Perkune Ethernet Cat 6 I noticed right away the speed to which my preamp, Naim NAC 272, responded. I started playing some familiar tracks through both UPnP sources and always thought that the streaming “sound” was so accurate and clean, but this has taken it all together to another level!!  It is like someone turned the tap fully open and wow the sound stage and detail is exceptional. You have done it again, Paul. I never really paid much attention to the Ethernet cable portion of my system, but I should have known, you were right, it is incredible ! Thanks for a great cable – Peter, Ontario,Canada

Hi Paul, listening to the new Airdream 2 XLR interconnect, the word “musicality” has now a different meaning then it did before! Thanks to these original top reference interconnect from Perkune, my system sounds bigger and is the highest sounding Hi-fi that I ever owned. The cables I use are all Airdream. And, ensures the signal well maintained throughout the system.

 The Airdream 2 XLR, contributes to a wide soundstage and too high level of detail in the music. Take the Violin, for example. This instrument can have such an emotional impact. You can listen to the same piece of music with Violin, in the different setup of cables and get very different results. When I heard the XLR Airdream 2, I got that emotional impact and was beautiful, as well, as it was elevating. The excitement from how the Hi-fi system decides to conveys its drums/rhythms, have much to do in the way audio cables allow this magic to happen – Best regards Eagle.


Hello Paul, And, just received the AirDream cables this afternoon. They are amazing! I took the time to listen to a Diana Krall track from side B of her latest “Turn Up The Quiet”. And, was a little sceptical about the soundstage and detail could get any better. But, after installing the Perkune Extreme Speaker Cables but all as I can say is wow! I next, removed the Nordost jumpers and installed the Perkune jumpers, installed the Perkune RCA interconnect between the phono-stage and my preamp replacing the Audio Quest Evergreens. Now, I can hear Diana’s breath and the sound of her saliva as she opens her mouth to sing. The voice over the violins and guitar is spectacular. Thank you, Paul, once again – Step, BC

Hi Paul, had time to listen to the reference pro, inserting into my friends system. We listened to a couple of his regular tracks, changed out the RCA cable, and started with the first track. And within 5 seconds he said wow what the hell, that’s awesome. We continued with more of his favourite tracks and he loved the cable and believe me my friend does not jump on anything. Well, unfortunately he wouldn’t let me leave with the cable and kept it. I said fair enough, and he was grinning ear to ear. The quietness between instruments was amazing with beautiful detail. The music really jumped out at us like never before. He now loves his Perkune – Regards Graham, Edmonton, Canada 


Yo Paul – This new stuff is fantastic – The XLR is brilliant – The sound is more relaxed, and I can tell the soundstage is enormous! It’s opening up. It fills the whole apartment with the sweet sound of music. Voice is more forward and sounds terrific. The right amount of weight and texture. The sound has perfect depth, and I can hear different accords on tones much better. Best Audiophile Interconnect

The best interconnect I have ever heard! Everything just seems more significant 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, and thanks for a great cable – Virgile.

Hello Paul, Just received the first interconnect gold and you were right – I am amazed! The sound is insanely good now, and I can only dream of how it will become in the future. I am thrilled to write my experience to you because you put a piece of you in every cable! I have just made a comparison on the new Ultimate RCA and have to say the original line is just astounding! More clarity!! More soft and musical. I Don’t know how you do it, but this is a masterpiece of an RCA interconnect cable. And, just has that flow to it.

I have listened to a whole album of ‘Nils Petter Molvær’ and this a challenge to make it sound good on any system. The central theme is a trumpet and a mix of his electrical elements with a female voice on some tracks. The experience with this ‘Ultimate’ Interconnect with this album, is a different sound than ever heard on my system. That immediate feeling can only be achieved through extremely high levels of a black background, detailing the delicate nuances in the different instruments playing on the album. The rhythm is superb and now has the right punch into deep bass and what you get is a feeling that draws you into the music. Thank you, Paul, for making this enjoyable experience possible – Jon


Hi Paul, I have just received the Gold Ultimate XLR and been playing music from tidal. I want to say the new edition is supreme in performance, alive and seductive. I am in love with this unique sound. Not only does it bring the music live, but the whole scope of the soundstage is now theatrical. The memorable part is how the nerve in the music, is well highlighted. Never have I experienced the feeling of the orchestra in my living room!!

Everything is expressed, in the form of timing, weight, and tonality. It all just flows so effortlessly, making me listen to music differently. Every detail presented. I notice the differences between every single note. The rhythm is fast-paced, so you are going to have a party time listening to this sweet and powerful bass! The way you can distinguish every note makes you feel the son,g and the scale of it all has increased enormously. Reference Quality! I never heard such performance from audio cables before. And my hat is off to you—best regards – David.

Hi Paul, Just wanted to say how much I love your interconnects, and you were right I did need 1.5 meters! My sound is now much better than I had before. And, I hear details and bass as never before. Last night I had a few friends over who are always here to listen to my latest triumphs. And, they all agreed 100% that my system now sounds the best it ever has. But, still do not understand how the sound can be made so good with cables that cost only a fraction of what I had paid before – Thanks mate, Simon. Best Audiophile Interconnect

Hi, Paul – The new interconnect brings 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 lite”, Larry Carlton, Acoustic Alchemy, David Benoit, Sanborn, Boney James. Also, some Latin Jazz. Astrud Gilberto, and Rock n Roll. FYI – I will be back at the end of the month and may want speaker cable and more cables for my movie room. And, so need to do measurements and then sort things out – but I am a happy customer ” THX,” Lan.


Hello Paul – I would like to congratulate you on the way that you are making your cables as they 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, 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. Best Audiophile Interconnect

The list could go on, but in essence, while most Hi-End music listening systems made to sound friendly, studio monitors are made to show the opposite. And, 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 and, convinced it should get a stable spot in the market. Thank you yet again for your high wires. Tomas.


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 before. I sit at my desk for hours and work. And, if I have a decent sound set up, it makes me work better. Are you like that? Play your favourite music while you work. This cable is a 2-meter length with metal jack plugs shielded. Best Audiophile Interconnect

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 beautiful cable – Lou 


Hi, Paul! – cables are 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 favourite 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 plan. I am taking with me Perkune cables! Pictures and review will follow, so stay tuned and all great, my friend. Robin.


Hi Paul – Last night I listened to several vocal jazz pieces by Anna Maria Jopek (a famous Polish jazz singer). Her records are always carefully mastered. The sound may shine on a good system, as it does on mine. Thanks to your cables. My fresh findings are:-

  • Depth of the soundstage rendered. And, some of the drumming sounds seemed to come from behind my window. Like 2 meters behind the baseline, which is a good thing.”
  • All, Positioning of sounds on the soundstage is now firmer with more air around instruments; no need to make the slightest guess about the whereabouts of a sound.”
  • Selectivity – way better now. I can easily listen to several sounds at the same time without them being muddied or covered by one another.”
  • Basslines are more defined and better controlled.”

All of the above strongly depends on CD quality, but when it’s right, it’s okay. Hope to give you more insight into my listening experience as it unfolds in weeks to come. – “Have a nice day” regards – Tomas. Interconnect cable results

Poland again

Hello 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 dramatically improved. And, together with the Positioning of all instruments, which is now much firmer and easy to pin down. Finally, I can relax and enjoy the holographic sound I have always craved.

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 going to buy your speaker cables in 1-2 months from now. And, In the meantime, I’ll just enjoy the newly found sound of my system. Best regards, – Tom Lasota, Poland.


Hi, Paul – These cables are astonishing! I heard details never heard before. Hearing the guitar on a different soundtrack is now more alive. The soundstage is huge and massive. And, the rhythm and beats are good, they make the whole experience enjoyable! Directly, the comparison between XLR and RCA interconnects. Because of the blackest background, I have ever “not” heard. Other than on part with XLR. I had to push the volume a bit more with RCA. Which, was because of the weaker signal on the unbalanced vs balanced. The XLR does have the upper hand, but not by much. Either way, I love this cable. Thanks so much, Charles. Interconnect results

I started with the Elite speaker cables, and they lifted the quality of sound like nothing else. On the success of the audio cables, got the interconnects. And, couldn’t believe the difference they made. On the strength of the successful purchases, I went for the new bi-wire connection. Which, again, lifted the sound even higher. I can’t thank Paul enough for his service and excellent advice. – Joe Timmins – Please send me another cable, But, with XLR terminations and also another two-meter power cord ASAP. Regards – Joe. B

Hi Paul, Hope all is well with you and been listening to USB cable a while now. And, I must say that your USB cable is superior to the stock cable I have. Even my friend said it was better when I changed the audio cables. The sound became clearer with better definition in/around instruments and voices. Sounds fuller, with less glare you may say. I am listening to a Norwegian artist with a great view ‘Maria Mena’ – homeless. Best Audiophile Interconnect

It was like I had turned the volume up just by switching cables. Another tremendous sounding line from Perkune – Love it. 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 surprised at what he has been missing–Regards, Flynn.


Hi, Paul just finished a 2-hour audition of the Audiophile power cable. I used it to power my CD player which I run through a Theta DS Pro-Prime DAC. And, all I was changing was the power cable to the disc spinner. So, I find it difficult to express what I experience different from a stock power cable. But, this I know, I do not want to go back to the stock cable! Your lines are superior in many respects. And, if I had to put it into two words, I would say detail, clarity, excellent soundstage. But, that’s several words. My wife, Loretta, picked your cable in a double-blind test using the same track. She sat enthralled, for a further 30 minutes listening to tracks she plays now and then. Quite happy, just to sit still and enjoy the music. Good job Paul – Peter Best Audiophile Interconnect


Hi Paul, New power cord which you gave me works better (of course!) than the one attached to the amplifier. And, will keep your new power cord. I want to stay also XLR/RCA cable too, as results are excellent. 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. Your Interconnect offers a vast improvement over my silver cables.

I used it from the DAC output to the preamp. And, the difference in bass detail is phenomenal! On one track what I thought was a single solid note is three separate letters played very quickly. I did not detect any loss in the treble. But again, there is more information presented that was not there before. And, it seems overall more glass-like or smoother than the silver cables were sounding. I would say that this cable is transparent. Hope to see you at the weekend. Regards, Dmitry.
