Hi Paul, I am loving these HDMI cables. I am using them as an audio interrconect,  one for each channel on an €80,000.00 cd/sacd player and it is sounding great, smooth when it needs to be and amazing attack when required….it is continuing to improve all the time.  Thanks once again and best regards, Jim Higgins


Hi Paul, I’m testing the HDMI Airdream vs your standard HDMI cable, and sure enough, there is a difference. A BIG difference! Now, I knew this was going to be a real upgrade, but I will tell what I discovered. I used my references player: Oppo Udp 205 Signature for viewing Blu Ray and Comcast for Streaming Netflix.
The  Blu Ray film I used is Beauty and Beast because this has a lot of bright colours and contrast of different shades. On Netflix: District  9.
In knowing what to look for, I started with the Airdream cable then switched to stock cable and back again to Airdream. The differences were not subtle. In contrast, you would notice that the sharp edges in the scenes of the Film where more smooth and soft with the Airdream. The colours seem more saturated and deeper. More even and not so flat looking as your Standard cable. As in the beginning scenes of Beauty and Beast, there is Bella who goes through the town.  In this, there are some details that are animated and some that are real.  I noticed with your standard cable, that you will have problems getting the scene to work properly, because of the level of information is not the same.
On the Airdream, the scene will have the proper level of detail, lighting and colour to make the different parts work as Intended. But Without this, you can more clearly see that the animated scenes seem fake and poorly detailed. Making the film look bad.
There is also clearly more seen artefacts with the standard cable. This makes the scenes look flatter and is more fatiguing to look at. The same goes for details in the low light of the movie. With your standard cable, there are less light and information, that make scenes look more doll and harsh. As with Airdream, they look more bright, lively and soft.
The Audio side of things is again a very big improvement in all areas.

Listened to Airdream cable in same scene as before, in the  movie “Beauty and the Beast”.
I then switched to standard cable and back again.
Yes, there is a difference. In my setup I noticed that the Airdream had a more fuller/richer sound. More extension in a way. You got a smoother overall presentation if the sound.
With the standard cable you would hear the different sounds more cut off and have less depth. Also in the transition between the different types of sounds is not so smooth. Meaning that the quality of sound may vary depending on source. And brings everything to life and more! All the details and realism are there and I shudder with things I never hard before. Truly amazing! In a sense, the sound flows much better with the Airdream cable!

The more information you get with the Airdream is absolutely worth investing in. You not only get more out of the movie but it so much more pleasing on the eyes to watch and things to hear. The vividness, the more contrast with soften edges and the more smoothly transition in motion, makes this HDMI the best cable for screening any movie! Blu Ray or Otherwise.

Thank you again once, Paul, For making such an excellent cable! Showing how important that is to have a high-quality cable that can make such a difference. Best from Eirik


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 sound-stage 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 pre-amp 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 are spectacular.
I was so involved in the vocals and the acoustic/brass that when the flute entered it startled me, as never before. Such a rich and present sound like someone was actually playing it right in front of me. The jumpers have obviously opened up the mids and highs to a new level and of course. Also, the RCA Extreme opening up the signal from the phono stage to the preamp like someone just turned the tap open all the way! Once again I applaud you on your engineering of these spectacular cables. And, continue to be amazed at how much more precise and open the soundstage has become. I know they will get better as they burn-in. Thank you, Paul, once again – Bill.
Hi Paul, Listening to my Oppo player with the AirDream cables and as the name suggests: dream sounding! The first I notice is how much more organic the sound is. The tones are airier and vocals become more true and authentic. The sound-stage is so vast and full of detail is absolutely mesmerizing listening to the music now! I was hoping to improve my system, but this was a game-changing experience!! The depth is like you a sitting first row in a concert, so it’s worth every penny. The bass is full and even more detailed than before. And, the rhythm is so addictive. Your entire body wants to jam with it!!! Hope my words can warm your day, Paul because I’m so happy with these ‘AirDream’ XLR cables! – Eirik
This new stuff is amazing – The XLR is brilliant – The sound is more relaxed and I can tell the sound-stage 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, Virgile interconnect cable results
Hello Paul – Am listening to the USB cable with a mini-jack cable to my mini-system. The first thing I noticed was how rich the sound was!! Wow, this is really amazing. Some of the songs, I get goosebumps from, listening to the “superior upgraded” cables in my microsystem.  Don’t know how you do it, Paul. I ran out of power, so switched over to my big system. Again, I found some music (YouTube) I haven’t heard in a while and found myself lost in the music like never before. My system has blossomed so much after I started to upgrade with cables from you, Paul. This was the best investment I ever did and thank you, Eirgile
Hi Paul, been listening for a while now and must say the interconnect cable sounds superb, is as smooth as silk. Vocals are very clear and I Just love it! Calm and transparent in the transition between tones of the piano player. And, even slightly better echo in the music than previously. The bass/lower frequency is very precise but relaxed. And, has the flow needed to give a good sound stage composition. Nothing sticks out, but remain as a whole. The high is a bit rolled off, but again, very clear and transparent. But, is very enjoyable listening to my system with Perkune cables! Soon a power conditioner will arrive and will boost the performance of my system. And, will write back to you about what I experience then. Best from, Jorgen

Hello Paul, Just received the first interconnect gold and you were absolutely right – I am just blown away! The sound is insanely good now and I can only dream of how it will become in the future. I am very happy to write my experience to you because you put a piece of you in every cable! I have Just done a comparison on the new Ultimate RCA and have to say the new cable 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 main 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 totally 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 fine 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 wonderful 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 new sound. Not only does it bring the music alive, but the whole scope of the sound-stage is now theatrical. The amazing 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 so beautifully expressed in the form of timing, weight, and tonality. It all just flows so effortlessly, making me listen to music in a different way. Every detail is so nicely presented, I notice the differences between every single note. The rhythm is fast-paced, so you are gonna have a party time listening to this sweet and powerful bass! The way you are able to distinguish every note, makes you really feel the song and the scale of it all has increased enormously. This is Reference Quality! I have never heard such performance from cables before. My hat is off to you, Paul. And, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE SOUND FROM THE NEW ULTIMATE XLR GOLD Best regards – David A.

Hello Paul, Just got the new XLR cable connected and now I understand what you said about being better and baffled how one cable can make such a difference. I have used the silver/copper speaker cable for a while now and yes, it does sound clearer and has more detailed dynamics. On music with hi-res, it sounds absolutely great. But on streaming (Spotify), it can sound a bit too revealing so now I have to evaluate this all over again – why? because this new XLR is just so good!
After I connected the “ultimate” XLR the sound just became alive in ways I could not believe possible!!! The rhythm/speed changed to this groovy beats I never heard before. Vocals became crystal clear, and coherency in soundstage has completely transformed. Now, the system sings like never before. More feeling and drama in the music and bass so defined. And, so delightful, how the music flows from the speakers with such conviction and presentation. I absolutely love the sound and thank you so much. And, I want to order another two-meter XLR for my Oppo. Best regards John.

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 am hearing details and bass as never before. Last night I had a few friends over who are always here to hear 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

Hi, Paul – The new interconnect 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 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 end of the month and may want speaker cable and more cables for my movie room. And, so need to do measurements and then will be able to sort things out – but I am a very happy customer ” THX, Lan. .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, 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.


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. 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 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, 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 stabilised 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. I would judge on-par with my bi-amped setup! During the next few evenings. And, will continue 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, just to tell you the Ultimate interconnect is superior to the standard range. Because I hear a more detailed and better sound! The vocals flow more naturally and the clarity is a big step up. I am able to hear micro details in all areas and especially the way you perceive the voices that make up the emotions in the song. This is absolutely the best interconnect I ever heard on my system! The bass is now deeper and has better foundation and weight! The depth of this new founded details makes more a 3D dimension of the music you hear. And, shows the true potential of what Perkune is capable of. Which are these astounding sounding cables!  You really did surprise me as these cables are like no other, they are in a class of their own! Rommy. Interconnect cable results


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 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 system. Taking with me Perkune cables!  Pictures and review will follow,  so stay tuned and all great my friend. Flek.Wales

Hi Paul, I think the cable is becoming to the 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. And, 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 “hocus-pokus”.  But, can’t wait for him to visit me and run an A\B test to prove 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 Interconnect cable results


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:-

  • Depth of the soundstage is well rendered – 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 sound-stage is now firmer with more air around instruments; no need to make the slightest guess about the whereabouts of a sound.”
  • Selectiveness – 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 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” regards – Tomas interconnect cable results

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. And, together with the positioning of all instruments, which is now much firmer and easy to pin down by. 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. 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 I was not accustomed to. 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! Now, the comparison between XLR and RCA interconnect. 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 absolutely love this cable. Interconnect cable results

I started out with the Elite speaker cables and they lifted the quality of sound like nothing else. On the success of the 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 great advice. – Joe TimminsPlease send me another cable, But, with XLR terminations and also another two-meter power cord ASAP. Regards – Joe.


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 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 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. 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, ElFlynnterconnect cable results


Hello Paul, The first time I plugged your cables in I sat quietly expecting some magic. Something to make my jaw drop. Before playing the loss-less files and my project files, I really expected to hear a 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! 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! And, I wanted to test how things sound and it is complete crap with my original 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. And, I will need two lengths with XLR to Stereo Jack. Regards –  Tommy.

Hi, Paul just finished a 2-hour audition of the 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 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! Your cables are clearly superior in many respects. And, if I had to put it into two words I would say detail, clarity, superior 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 Interconnect cable results


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 keep also XLR/RCA cable too, as results are good. 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 solid single note is actually three separate notes played very quickly. I do 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.II would say that this cable is transparent. Hope to see you at the weekend. Regards, Dmitry.
