“[TARA Labs] noise reduction technology is real—you'll hear how quiet it becomes—and it is done less obtrusively than most products that advertise this feature. No information is lost…
If you're a fan of Shunyata, Wireworld or Cardas cables (among the most popular of the full-bodied, “accurate" wires), you'll have a natural affinity with the TARA Labs ISM Onboard The 0.8. Personally, I like ISM Onboard The 0.8 better than these brands because it passes more information and is more musical. When put into your system, most likely you won't have to spend time re-voicing it—it will just sound better. And chances are it may also start to remind you of those "big rooms" at Hifi shows.”

“After listening to several of the most marketed cables, TARA Labs was the best cable of the lot, with a warm and seductive quality that brought out the soundstage between the instruments in the several classical recordings I listened to. Superb!”
–TARA Labs Customer "M.L."
“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 the way 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.”
–TARA Labs Customer "John"
“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.”
