I am writing to tell you how very impressed I am with the D-75 cable you sent me. It is a clear and significant improvement in "every". aspect over the other cable I was using (VdH the First... yeah I know).
I like everything about this cable. It sounds so smooth and natural, yet powerful and dynamic with other music. No use raving on, just that I am quite surprised the difference it made in a relatively expensive and highly revealing tube based system.
Construction is also great, although it sounds better than it looks. Interesting RCA connector style, unique?..certainly I've never seen one like that before. Unfortunately not much good for a twin-axial or twisted pair cable, otherwise I'd be ordering some of these!
I have been away fishing (lucky me) for a bit. I will be showing this cable to some friends of mine who use similar gear. I'm sure they'll be surprised... especially for the money, oh yeah... those BNC plugs are killer! Fantastic stuff.
All in all I'd have to say it offered the single biggest improvement since I threw in the SS gear and went to tube amps. Amazing how much difference it makes.

I just wanted to let you know that these are the best cables that I ever heard. I could not be more pleased with my purchase. THANK YOU!!!!

I am the person who had the Music Metre Signatures, and was less than satisfied. Well, I talked to Darren, and ordered a set of speaker cables. I was so happy that I then bought a set of interconnects, and I now have two more on order! I was able to sell my cables to a place called Toys From The Attic (they advertise in Stereophile). Needless to say, I took a beating selling them that way, but I was able to get enough to almost cover the entire cost of all DH Labs I needed. So in the end, it all worked out. I can't believe how good the DH Labs sounds--it is more detailed, without being bright; and the bass is much better as well. Anyway, thanks again - and feel free to use me as a testimonial if you wish.

Hello from Greece! All cables are the same! That was my opinion. Until my friend borrowed me a biwire set of 6. DH Labs T-14 (my speakers are bi-wirable). My impressions from the first notes were unbelievably great! Greater soundstage, better focus, crisper and more clear sound and perfect highs! My old cables (VDH MC CS 122) are to be sold now! What a difference a wire makes!

As I expected from the last set that I had installed, they work great in my system. Very neutral, airy and getting better as they break in. I prefer these to my old TARA cables. Although TARA has good body and warmth, with my equipment (EAR triode driving Martin Logan panels on top and NAD on bottom) was actually too warm and lacked lots of openness, detail and pace compared to yours. Thanks.

I just had to let you know how wonderful the interconnects sound, more so now that I have some time on them. The clarity and definition has increased even more, the CD's sound better than they ever have! I find myself wanting to listen more and more, and the more time on them the sweeter they sound! Thanks again!!!

I'll tell you an interesting story about what prompted the e-mail. I purchased an Audio Research Vsi55 integrated tube amp about a year ago to drive my Soliloquy 5.3 speakers. I have been using a Kimber Hero interconnect purchased locally, along with a single run of T14 picked up several years ago from a friend. The other day, I was listening to a well recorded cd of acoustic bass, drums and guitar. The overall sound was good, but I just didn't hear into the music like I thought it should sound. Then a thought came to mind. I had a much less expensive old BL-1 interconnect lying on the floor behind my equipment rack and decided to switch it for the Kimber. Instantly, the system was transformed. It was more true, open, and with higher resolution. The bass was also richer. I immediately played tracks of several female vocals, and for the first time, I felt I was hearing true hi-fi from my modestly priced system. Later that evening, I did a blind comparison test of the two interconnects, allowing my wife to listen to one of her favorite vocals. She was thrilled with increased resolution and lower noise floor. We could hear fingers moving across frets, the woody vibration of a saxophone reed, and other detail we had never before heard.
That evening, I researched the DH Labs website and found out that you have Q10 cables, Air Matrix and Revelation interconnects. This is what prompted the e-mail below as I am going to upgrade to the Q10 and one of the other interconnects.
Thanks for making a quality product that is also affordable.

Your cables are a real find. To know that I am getting the sort of sound that other people are coughing up a fortune for pleases me almost as much as the sound of the system.

Just wanted to let you know that I received the T-14 cables yesterday, and even though I decided to let them break in just by listening to them, they already sound amazing. The difference between these and my Straightwires is HUGE. And while I realize that a lot of that has to do with the fact that my speakers are now biwired, I will give credit where it is due. These cables sound BETTER (in my humble opinion) than any other cables I was auditioning (including Transparent Plus Biwire, MIT Terminator 2 Biwire, and Audioquest, all of which cost at least $500 for the same configuration and length). I just can't wait until they are fully broken in. Thanks again.
