David, (Design Audio Video/Texas)

I just wanted to drop you a note and thank you for the recommendation and great service. I received the TARA Labs RSC Prime 800 speaker cables. They sound fantastic in my system and are a huge compliment to my Spendor A6's.

I have been on a quest for over a year, replacing a 20+ year old system, and the cables were the last piece of the puzzle. I've been through cables from MIT Matrix 23 and Alpha Core Goertz Vericity MI2 to van den Hul D-352 and have been disappointed by each of them in one aspect or another. Trialed against even Shunyata Black Mamba's at 3X the price, the TARA Labs held their ground...amazing!

The TARA Labs RSC Prime 800 are phenomenal in all aspects in my system...tremendous bass reach and foundation without, smooth transition to present midrange with no forwardness, detailed highs without excessive brightness or sparkle...and a soundstage that has extended far beyond the speakers separation as well as depth and placement of instruments within the overall presentation.

Associated equipment

Spendor A6, Musical Fidelity M6i, Musical Fidelity M1DAC, Cambridge Audio azur C350 CD Player, MIT CVT1 Pro XLR balanced interconnects from DAC to amp., Sonos,

Thanks again for the great service

When I use the TARA Labs ISM the One Digital and 0.8 Onboard, my friends and guests don't say much about "the sound." And that happens, because the TARA Labs digital cables are so transparent and free of noise that they get out of th eway and let the equipment and recordings do the talking. By stepping aside, the TARA Labs digital cables can eliminate barriers between listeners and the music.

And even when we use ratty equipment, the TARA Labs digital cables' lack of distortion does not heap further insult onto the music.

I wanted to let you know that last weekend I finally had the chance to incorporate all your cables in my Kondo/Tidal set up. In one word: I am very impressed! A deep black background, a large space in which the various instruments can be recognized and followed (tunes fading away) very clearly. The combination of tremendous transparency and beautiful tonality makes them addictive.

Just a quick note to say the ISM 2EX have arrived, and even without any system setup, straight from the box, they have made an immediate impact. The mid-range is gloriously rich, with more timbre on vocals. The bass is much fuller with far more weight. The soundstage is also expansive. These were all criticisms of my Nordost LS Red Dawn, so I could not be happier. However when I evaluated the overall sound, I found that nothing was missing, it just sounded different, but definitely more 'natural'. I think the Nordost range (LS Red Dawn/Frey) that I have tried tend to highlight particular frequencies to sound impressive, but these are quite tiring over long periods and/or higher volumes. In summary, a fantastic result, which I am sure will only improve as the cables get some more hours. Cheers,

The cables arrived today, and I leave for Hawaii tomorrow. Wow, even straight out of the box, the ISM Onboard Digital sounds terrific. It simply opens the door between transport and DAV, letting more of the signal/recording through. Other cables seem so filtered, restrictive, and colored."

just wanted to say I'm enjoying the sub-woofer cable. I was watching the recent Blu-Ray release of the Steven Spielberg movie Super 8, man when the train wreck scene came, the whole house shook! The dog ran and hid in the other room! LOL The wife came running in the living room and said "Turn it down!" I don't think so!

The black and white film really showcased the improvement in contrast. The areas of mid to dark shadows showed an impressive level of detail and the film grain was wonderfully preserved. By this time, I wanted to rediscover my entire DVD library, even if it was only a few scenes from each movie.

As with all Tara products, the AD / 10B imparts no coloration to the sound and I could detect no loss of dynamic range. It revealed the differences between tube and solid state equipment, emphasizing the positive qualities of both

I bought Video HT wires for my Sony DVPs9000es DVD player in 65" TV and they look amazing. Great product.

...loaned me a pair of your entry level RSC Axiom 1 meter interconnects, and they blew away my Kimber Heros out of the ballpark! It wasn't even a contest! You're right, once you hear RSC cables, there's no going back to anything else!

The background is now jet black and super deep. It's like there is zero noise coming into the system. And, the sound staging is better, with great width and depth. The overall sound is totally smooth and totally transparent.

TARA Labs speaker cable not only revealed what was missing, they showed that my previous cable had a mid-range tonal emphasis. I also noticed a solid improvement in bass extension and high frequency resolution. TARA Labs speaker cable has NO sound.

RSC Interconnects - I have enjoyed hours of cable movies and digital playback without glare 'hardness' or 'beaminess'. All other cables I have auditioned, and they are many; typically emphasize a potion of the sound at the expense of overall performance. Many are too neutral, lacking in dynamics. Others are lively, a bit 'out of control'. Some are way too forward, 'in your face'. By sharp contrast, TARA Labs cables present a soundstage that emerges naturally, out of silence, and does not draw attention to itself. TARA Labs RSC interconnects have NO sound.

Prism AC Power Cord - These cords provide a solid, quiet platform for electrical current to flow. The audio and video are 'effortless' and the dynamics are natural without compression. Yes, TARA Labs Prism power cords also have NO sound. We all want value for our money, but TARA Labs products offer much more...nothing!

The color saturation really stood out in the digitally transferred films, A Bug's Life and Pleasantville. The scene in Pleasantville when David takes his date out to "the spot" and the petals falling from the trees are pink for the first time was breathtaking. Akira Kurosawa's classic The Hidden Fortress was a delight to watch again. The black and white film really showcased the improvement in contrast. The areas of mid to dark shadows showed an impressive level of detail and the film grain was wonderfully preserved. By this time, I wanted to rediscover my entire DVD library, even if it was only a few scenes from each movie.

As with all Tara products, the AD / 10B imparts no coloration to the sound and I could detect no loss of dynamic range. It revealed the differences between tube and solid state equipment, emphasizing the positive qualities of both. The liquidity and musicality of tubes and the speed and dynamics of solid state.

I like the Air 1's better in my system. I also have a pair of Air 2 speaker cables. Amazing sound from both. I've died and gone to heaven – I swear. Thanks for your time and research. I am one of your loyal customers that is truly enjoying your efforts. And I did listen to XLO, Straightwire, & JPS Labs. I bought TARA Labs. Amen.
