Hi Paul, I write this as I am listening to these new Perkune Extreme Gold cables for the first time. All I can say is that I am astounded! I am playing a Frank Sinatra album, Frank, Frank and Nancy that I know very well and I can’t believe the spectacular soundstage being presented well beyond my previous Perkune Elite Cables and they are spectacular!
I am hearing more detail than I have ever heard before! The transparency is amazing, theses cables have opened the signal path between my amp and speakers to whole new level. I am now playing a Chris Isaac album which tends to portray a lot of bass line, the bass is crisp, controlled and detailed allowing the vocals to be so well presented above the bass lines like I have never experienced before.
Ray Lamontagne, Such a Simple Thing, which I am now streaming through Tidal, is a great combination of vocals, acoustic guitar, bass and slide guitar all of which is portrayed flawlessly with this new sound stage.
These cables truly bring out the full potential of my system beyond what I have ever experienced before. I have auditioned other brand name cables much more expensive and these are by far superior in sound and build quality.
The Ultimate Gold cables have me experiencing spine tingling, hair raising detail that I thought I had already experienced! Naim gear tends to be finicky when it comes to after market speaker cables. The Perkune cables work so well with this gear and maintain the PRaT that Naim gear owners love about the brand. In a word SPECTACULAR!!!
My gear: Naim Nap 300 Dr, Naim NAC n 272, Naim XPS Dr, Fold Note TT, Dynavector 20x2H cartridge, Dynavector P75 Mrk IV phono stage, PMC Twenty 26 floor standing and Perkune Audiophile Ultimate Gold Series speaker cables – 3 meters. Bill Long Nelson B.C.

Started out with the Elite speaker cables and they lifted the quality of sound like nothing else. On the success of the cables we then got the interconnects and we couldn’t believe the difference they made. On the strength of the successful purchases we went for the new bi-wire connection which lifted the sound even higher, can’t thank Paul enough for his service and great advice. – Joe Timmins

Hello Paul – Just connected the new Ultimate speaker cables and they sound amazing. The first thing that hit me is how natural it all sounds and that is only the beginning! The depth and width of the sound appear all around. The soundstage grows bigger and the smooth deep bass melt’s in from the totally black background and all of the Instruments in the music are very organic in the whole presentation. The rhythm is very precise and unhindered. Meaning it just flows through the air and every detail is coming forth to takes its place! The micro details are much better now, as you can really hear what they are all about! This is fantastic and important!! The movement has increased even more with these speaker cables and so the music tells its story!! The Voices are more natural and the micro details are astonishing!! You are able to hear the tones in the voices with such Clarity!! So the singing is even more real! So relaxed and smooth but at the same time so precise! Sometimes details will jump out, to say hello that you weren’t aware of before. The presentation of the music is without a doubt, the best of the best! This is another masterpiece from Perkune! I’m so impressed with what these speaker cables are capable of! THE MUSIC JUST GOT OTHER DIMENSION TO IT. I will now be enjoying my music to the fullest and will write again tomorrow – Best from Eirik
Hi Paul, Just did a test of the ultimate range HDMI. At the start of the movie, I watch 15 min, three times before switching to the new cable. Now I know the colors and picture quality. The new cable is much better the stock one I used before. The colors are more saturated and look better. The white colors in the movie are more bright! Wow! The picture quality is more smooth and Less noise or artifacts. The scenes seem like they are more calm.contrast is sharper and edges are better defined. As a watch the movie now, I noticed how good the sound is! Thanks to the upgraded speaker cables and RCA. Wow, The sound is so rich. Love it!! The bass is so high quality, deep and soft. It first time I see a movie after the new cables are in place. And what a treat it is!! (can’t wait to hear what my friends will say, then they come and see and hear this! Best from Eirik

Hello Paul and this is just a quick word for me to say really loving these new cables. I do not understand how that can sound so good and yet cost so little! What is the secret man I will be with you forever at this rate? The cable sound so sweet and nice fitted in the son’s music room in the basement – I thought I worked to start with this cable but in some ways prefer it to mine – best regards, David loudspeaker cable

Hello Paul – Your jumpers showed up last night and Initial impressions are very good. Highs are much smoother, Midrange more natural and Bass rocks, A big difference in everything man and so happy – Warmest regards, Monte
Hey, Paul, had these new jumpers playing for a few minutes and right out the box so good and like I have another system playing. I now get more of everything and the music is OFF the floor! Just amazed at what four bits of cable can do. Really great job and thanks so much. Regards, Rolfe loudspeaker cable

Paul – just got the new Elite loudspeaker cable and just want to say I am very pleased with the way that is sound right out of the box. Had just a few hours on it now but so happy I just have to tell you. It is a real step up from the standard I had last year and this has more energy and detail which I LOVE – will be in touch best regards Rommy

Hello Paul – The new 4-meter bi-wire showed up last night – had a brief chance to listen to them. Initial impressions are good – highs are much smoother than the Tributaries, midrange more natural, haven’t listened to anything with enough deep bass to tell yet but is steadily improving. Most noticeable everything is more unified now instead of highs, mids, and lows separate from each other as with the old cables. Soundstage is less wide but much deeper. thanks, Nick
Hi Paul – Been enjoying my sound system with your cables. Sound great as ever. I Just bought the new Oppo UDP-205, and I’m really impressed by the picture and sound quality of the player.
I saw pictures of your new bi-wire cable and happy you still able to develop new and exciting products!! I’m sure it sounds fantastic as with your other cables, but In my system, I’m only able to do the single wire.
I hope you have the same success with this new bi-wire cable as the other loudspeaker cable because you make some awesome hi-fi cables. – Eirik

Hi, Paul just want to say a big thank you and how the heck could make such a great sounding loudspeaker cable. As you said it certainly is better sounding than the old one and it has given me a much bigger soundstage and more of the music – when will you stop??? – Rommy
Hi, Paul – Yes, these four-meter speaker cables are in their own league. The sound is so inviting, so full, so rich with details, and 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 timing and the voice sounds natural and organic”- Eirik
“Hi Paul your cables arrived yesterday and now playing them and after two hours my words are Hmmmm my goodness it is not stereo or 3D – maybe 4D just Fantastic!!! Also, the cables seem to get better every 24 hours that goes by!” I just LOVE you loudspeaker cable and again Thank you — Peter
Hi Paul, 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 I know so much and a loudspeaker cable really does sound better after a few days and it does make a difference and thank you for a really great cable and I will order another three-meter loudspeaker cable from you at Christmas time OK – Lou loudspeaker cable

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 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 regards – David
Hello Paul, Got the speaker cables and my first impressions are very positive – more detail, more selectiveness, more space 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. – Best regards Tomas

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
Paul – you are the Man! This new 3-meter loudspeaker cable and really is the BIZ! Yes, you were right and it does make my system sound much better. Everything seems to be bigger somehow and that for me is the best present ever” – Willie
Hi Paul – WOW is an understatement I can hear the keystrokes from a Bach harpsichord cd I played first. You are an amazing bro, I shall put a review on your website and will talk to you about your interconnects in the NY and I can highly recommend them to all who appreciate the best sound. Your friend in Sydney, Joe

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 loudspeaker cable
Hi, Paul, 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 do 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 loudspeaker 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 him 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 it was an improvement. Perkune rules!
Maybe it wasn’t enough time to do the speaker cable its 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 the Perkune cables can do – Eirik
