The Muse Speaker Cable is a newly developed high-end speaker cable from TARA Labs. Construction includes using PTFE (Teflon) air-tube construction along with a trio of helixed Rectangular Solid Core® conductors. Each channel uses 144 Rectangular Solid Core® conductors with a total gauge size greater than a 6-gauge conductor, together with the high frequency extension and linearity of a 32-gauge conductor. This cable provides exceptional performance and high current carrying capability and is truly a high-end reference audio cable at a price that is far below comparable reference cables. The Muse Speaker Cable has excellent mid-range & bass weight. Neutrality and revealing in all frequencies, as well as excellent spatial cues. The main characteristic of the Muse speaker cables are their incredible musicality! Beautiful, refined, with outstanding detail and extension. A cable this is “listenable” for hours on end with no fatigue whatsoever.

“The Muse’s performance is beyond reproach. This cable loom is neutral and allows for stunning dynamic expression while communicating the music in a pacey, enjoyably rhythmic way. Low level detail is easily discerned but without introducing artificiality, in other words, the excellent standard of resolution maintains the integrity of the musical message. And that, more than anything, is inspiring.”
–Edgar Kramer, Editor-in-Chief, SoundStage Australia
“TARA Labs in the Muse series have achieved an effect of richness, fullness that even in the top Evolution series did not manifest in such a strong way. This is the fullness based on emphasizing the mid-band, and above all the vocals, while maintaining high resolution and vibrancy of the sound. I heard it right away as soon as I played the Anita Lipnicka Vena Amoris .
The Muse delighted me with the tone, depth and weight of the sound. This is definitely this type of cable that completes the system, fills the cracks in the sound that user may not even be aware of, but after trying TARA one shall find out that something was missing without them … It seems obvious that TARA Labs focused on richness and density of the sound. Although the Evolution series has something very special about it, Muse does not fall far behind it. In some system Muse might be the preferred choice.”
–Wojciech Pacuła, High Fidelity
“With the full TARA implementation—a synergy developed that caught me off guard. The Muse vaulted to new levels of texture and transparency bundled in a very musical package.
For the first time in a long while I found myself able to relax on the couch and not feel compelled to get up and tweak the sound, even with a variety of source material. And that about says it all.
The Muse signal cables demand to be auditioned as a system. In that implementation, I think you will be surprised at the sound quality delivered. These cables will not be going back to the manufacturer: they have found a home in my reference system."
