  1. Bill K

    A truly exceptional speaker cable, offering reference level performance and value rarely found in the high end cable market. Hand crafted build quality along with excellent connectors result in a beautifully finished cable with outstanding performance. Don’t let its reasonable cost make you think performance will be compromised, this speaker cable offers a level of musicality and effortless dynamics that are superb at any price. Easily up to the task of matching with top level gear, they will reveal the potential of your connected components. Pete makes a fine product and is a delight to work with, I look forward to adding more of his cables to my system.

    I have had the American speaker cables and interconnects about 1 month. Used with my Lumin T2 network player connected to my PrimaLuna integrated tube amp. These are without doubt the “best” cables I have ever experienced and previously I had spent crazy money on some other brands. What I like: tone is faithful with a natural and easy sound but not smoothed or rolled off and true to the source; transparency/detail retrieval is tremendous without ever sounding harsh or analytical and finally sound staging/imaging is noticeably improved. I would not have thought copper based cables could present like this. By the way, the build quality is just top notch. Owner Pete is easy to communicate with too. This combo is highly recommended. I’ll surely have to try some of Pete’s power cords now….

    I purchased Pete’s American speaker cable in April and have about 100 hours on them. These replaced a pair of highly regarded cables that retail for more money. The cables sounded really good from day 1. After about 50 hours, they simply opened up and allowed me to see into the music. I now have soundstage width that extends far to the left and right. Depth has improved and the space between and surrounding instruments is amazing. Detail and transparency is very impressive as well. This was my first TWL purchase and it will not be my last. Thank you for all you do, Pete!!

      Thanks, Mike! I appreciate your kind comments!

    Ok, I am not good with words or descriptions but I can say that these American Speaker Cables have bested my current pair of speaker cables from a well known mfg that cost almost 4x more. The other reviews are spot on. Very musical but with incredible detail with highs that are not rolled off but at the same time never get fatiguing..and the base is so full and wonderful. Soundstage is wide and deep as I have heard in my system. I don’t know what kind of special sauce Pete has put in these cables but these are the real deal. My speaker cable quest is over… I have to get the interconnects and power chords.

      Thanks, John, for your kind comments on my speaker cables!!!

    I found out about Pete’s company Triodewirelabs through YouTube where I noticed the American Speaker Cables being used with the Harbeth M40.2 Anniversary model which I had recently upgraded to in my system.

    My system consists of the C1100/D1100 Tube preamp and DAC running with the MC462 Solid State amp. I was using Kimber Kabyle 8TC speaker wires for 8 years. Once I installed the TriodeLabes speaker wires, I immediately noticed better low end response and the sound of human voice and instruments was much more full and 3 dimensional. I also noticed excellent dynamics and the volume I had been listening to prior to the upgrade now felt too loud and so I started listening at a lower volume setting.

    Overall I has been about 50 hrs since I received them and they are working great in my system. They are excellent in quality and should last years. Pete was very easy to chat with and answered all my questions.

    I was so impressed that I ordered the balanced XLR Spirit II interconnect cables and and I am waiting on the power cables (obsession and digital American). The review is coming once I have more time listening to them after the minimum break in although all the cables are burnt in at the factory according to the company’s website.

    I highly recommend these speaker cables if you have a Mcintosh solid state amp and the Harbeth Speakers.

      Thank you, Samir! I appreciate your kind observations! Yes, the speaker cables appear to provide more “gain” compared to other speaker cables! Thanks again & enjoy – Pete

    Have used pete’s interconnects and power cables, “They are the mercedes of audio” , I just ordered my 9ft American speaker cable. I know they are very very good.

    • triodewirelabs

      Thanks, Reddy, for your kind accolades! Best regards – Pete

  7. Bob Harden

    I knew within a few minutes of hooking these up that they would be staying in my system. I’m using a 12-foot pair of American speaker cables to drive Spatial Audio M3 Sapphire speakers from a PrimaLuna Dialog HP integrated. When combined with a pair of Pete’s interconnects, I immediately noticed more leading edge/trailing edge on notes, and heard more depth in the soundstage. When combined with 7+ power cables on my integrated and power conditioner, the effect became more noticeable, and my system gained additional weight. These are staying, and I will be adding additional TriodeWire Labs cables to my system.

    • triodewirelabs

      Hi Bob – Thanks for your nice comments on my speaker cables! They will sonically improve even further with additional play time on them! Enjoy! … Pete

  8. Magnus Karlsson

    My system has gone through a major change in SQ this past week. It started with 4 new feet for my Merason DAC-1. Suddenly I could hear what the DAc was really capable of. And upon that I finally received my order for TWL speakercables and a american powercord for the DAC. The speakercable is nowhere burnt in but its sound is very musical. Suddenly I can hear cymbals shine and decay. So during the years I have experimented with different brands of cables and I have now a full loom of TWL cables (almost) and its true. I like the soundsignature what it does to the whole picture. Can really recommend Pete and his cables.

    • triodewirelabs

      Thank you Magnus for your keen insights and kind comments! Enjoy!

      Happy Listening,

    Describing sound is almost impossible, but with these cables my system has reached completely new heights. I almost come back in tube mode, I experience the sound organic and so alive. Sometimes I have the feeling that I’m at a concert with one of my favorite bands. How to describe a sound image that only TriodeWireLabs has achieved must be to call it a full spectrum presentation, a reference class bass, a midrange that has a certain sweetness and a little warmth, and the top of the frequency spectrum is reproduced openly without you “suffering” due to a lot of energy in this area. The sound of the piano is reproduced with all its complexity I have never experienced before. What does it never mean? – well I have been a hifi freak for almost 40 years, have had expensive and very expensive cables from very well known suppliers.
    It is also part of the story that Pete is a very nice man to deal with, always quick on the paws (keyboard) with an informative and pleasant tone.

      Thank you Per Aage, for your kind insights and experience with my cables! Enjoy – Pete

  10. Chow Kah Mun

    Ordered a pair of American speaker cables, spirit II rca inter-connect, and digital powercords. After run in, the cables really lowered the noise floor and expanded the sound stage. Sonically, it really reminded me of the prized nos mullard tubes – highly musical, with all the details but without the glare. Well done Pete!

    • triodewirelabs

      Hello Chow – Thank you for your your king comments and accolades! Enjoy your system!
      Best regards – Pete

    All I can say is WOW! My system is sounding amazing and I’m hearing things I’ve never heard before. The workmanship on the cables is incredible and the connectors are top-notch. Running a pair of Volti Audio Razz speakers driven by a Cary Audio SLI-80HS and dynamics, tone, and musicality are exemplary.

    • triodewirelabs

      Thank you, Michael! Enjoy!

    I’m extremely happy with the TWL American speaker cables. They’ve really enhanced the sound quality a musicality of my system (McIntosh MC2102 tube power and and C8 Pre). Having just broken in a new pair of Focal Aira 936 speakers, I wasn’t sure the system could sound any better, but it does! More depth and detail across the whole sonic spectrum. Build quality is excellent, exceptional value. Plan to purchase Pete’s XLR interconnects next. Highly recommended

    • triodewirelabs

      Thanks, Rich! Enjoy your system!

      Cheers – Pete

  13. Suwat

    What can I say? I am a believer after trying these cables in my system. I’m relatively new to the hobby but coming from a budget speaker brand to TWL is like night and day. Pete is a great guy and the quality of his work is impeccable .

    • triodewirelabs

      Thank you, Suwat! Enjoy your system!

      Cheers – Pete
