Joseph, those Tara Labs cables are a ripoff so far as the price goes, but if you mean that you already own them, then there's no good reason to change. There's nothing wrong with the copper wire in them; the problem is what they charge for them and the deceptions/lies in the advertising.

Yikes $2600 USD for a pair of 10 footers. I'd keep um if i was you. If they're too short, sell em, buy axiom cables and spend the difference on whatever (maybe a sub).

Note that in Paul's link the shameless "reviewer", in addition to the usual drivel about the "sound quality", comments that the $2,600 price was a "smaller bundle" than he expected.

That review was almost enough to make me agree with JohnK, but not quite. I think the Tara Labs Prism series interconnects are terrific values, very well made and good looking. I used them on my office HT system, gave them away when my assistant's husband put together their HT sytsem.

Tara Labs Prism 500


However, anyone who really wants a demonstration of cable products which make a big difference in sound quality can try these on a 30 day return basis:

Mapleshade Audio Clearview Double Golden Helix Speaker wire:


and some of their interconnects


I don't know these people, have nothing to do with their business, but LOVE their speaker wire and ICs.

Listen and let opinion follow experience.

Thanks for the link!!!!!

I just can't believe that anyone, with an ounce of technical ability, would post that sort of BS in a review. That is incredible!!

I guess that it confirms the old saying "A fool and his money are easily parted!"

$2600 just for cables, that's ABSOLUTELY incredible!!!!
