"This cable line from TARA Labs is special indeed … it stands at the pinnacle of the best cabling that I have heard in my system to date … I have not auditioned the lower priced cabling in the TARA line, but if they possess a good slice of the sonic gifts of these higher priced cables, I would definitely recommend them too for an audition in a mid-priced or entry level system. For those most fortunate to have a truly reference caliber system, and looking to get it to another level of “that’s it!” organic solidity, soundstage layering and ambient spaciousness, these TARA Labs reference cables are among the finest I have heard ... I can think of no better compliment!"
–Nelson Brill, Stereo Times
“The One speaker cables are better than other cables in so many respects, but particularly in providing soundstage dimensions and in revealing more of the sound. Regardless of the type of music, they can clearly show the difference. There was a big difference in the performance: the music became crystalline and the sound from each instrument became much more natural - this is really something that had never been obtained from cables before in our experience! 'The One' from TARA Labs is now the best cable system for the new generation.”
–Sonic Review Magazine
“The sound of a full The One system is not a sound at all. It's more a feeling - a sense of quiet between the notes; a sense of the air, size, volume, and reverberant quality of the original recorded venue; a sense of true-to-life harmonics that bloom from a naturally hushed yet vibrant soundstage. Depth perception was available both in the soundstage and in the music itself, you might say. The soundstage was also utterly transparent out to its farthest corners.”
–Jonathan Scull, Stereophile Magazine
“TARA Labs 'The One' Speaker Cable clearly outperforms its competitors. In my more than 10 years of experience on writing hi-fi articles, this is the first time that I have seen a pair of speaker cables which outperforms its competitors' speaker cables so completely. In addition, I have had the following experience only once in my lifetime with any cable: 'The One' Interconnect improves the performance of the entire audio system … I would like all audio fans to have a chance to listen to it and see how the audio performance is enhanced.”
–Ying G. Cheng, Hong Kong Audiophile Journal
“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.”
