ANALOG CABLES: We couldn't have said it better ourselves...
Paradise analog interconnect cable:

“I have installed a 26-foot pair of your balanced (Paradise) Cryo-Silver interconnects and burned them in for at least your suggested time and am now listening. I will leave it to others to describe the incredible resulting details. I will say only that I have been listening less to the music I love since I can no longer listen as background music. I am pulled into the music I hear as I never have before. A full symphony, quartet or piano concerto leaves me so emotionally and sonically sated that I cannot continue without a breather. Instruments, harmonies, duets, etc. use me up quickly and leave me ecstatic. I am now very careful to select music that I really want to hear for I know that incredible sound is what will come out of my speakers, both instrumentals and vocals. One last but important point is that I now longer have that subliminal urge (around for 50 years) to add or change equipment since I keep reminding myself that I have reached a point of utter satisfaction. Thank you Brad!”    — H.S.

“I am sending you a copy of a performance of the Verdi “Requiem Mass.” It was performed in Amsterdam in 1939 just before the beginning of the Second World War. Verdi was an agnostic, but was so moved by the death of a great Italian writer by the name of Manzoni that he was overcome by the need to honor him in God's name. I was so moved when I heard this piece through your cables, notwithstanding the age of the recording. The clarity of the performers was amazing. I was in tears before it ended and I never do that. I do attribute the emotions to the use of your cables for I have listened to the recording before and never had such a reaction.”    — H.S.

“I have had my second set of ICs in for about 350+ hours now...and just ordered a digital cable. I seem to be on the way to an all Revelation cabled system. The addition of the second IC was not a subtle change but one easily recognized...even from another room. The balance, the relaxed presentation, the dynamics, the sense of the music, etc., etc.,...all dramatically improved. These ICs have allowed me to much more easily avoid "listening to the system" and just enjoy the music. They were more than a 1+1 improvement. The whole synergy was greatly enhanced. I know “your mileage may vary,” but I am “on the bandwagon.” They have just contributed greatly to my regaining the pleasure of listening, and the reason I (we) are addicts of / addicted to this hobby.”    — R.P.

“I have used many interconnect cables in my system, including Audience Au24, Empirical Audio Holophonic PC, Ridge Street Audio Poiema! and Poiema!!, Acoustic Zen (both copper and silver versions), and Kimber Select 1030. Simply said, Revelation Audio Labs Paradise interconnects bring the music to life like no other interconnect I've used in my system.”    — G.J.

“Hi Brad, how are you? Your RCA (analog interconnect cable) is great. I have let a Hi-Fi reviewer on hifi.nl hear it and he also admired the great sound of the cable. oh oh oh what a fantastic cable! Beats the Kimber KS. I am going to sell my Siltech interconnect cables. But your interconnect is "growing" yet, and the sound is great. After (further) listening, I shall write a review about the cable. I'm doing my best to promote yor cables in Holland.”    — Have a good day, Wijnand www.klaviers.nl

“Hi Brad, The Revelation Audio Labs 'Paradise' CryoSilver Reference interconnects are by far the best I've ever owned, and have owned a really big list of cables. These cables just get out of the way and let the music through - highs, midrange, and low end are right, and where they are supposed to be. This is the most natural, unrestrained sound I have ever had in my system. If high end audio is your thing you need these cables - they won't disappoint. Brad Vojtech has been more than helpful in my quest for the sound of music. Thanks Brad for keeping me up half the night listening to my system again, I do not want to turn it off and go to bed, so I know it is right. You wouldn't put inferior cables on your race car - don't do it on your high end music system. These cables are truly great - and will not cost you an arm and a leg. The only problem is, getting used to these, you won't be able to settle for less - I won't.”    —J.R.

Paradise Tone Arm Phono Interconnect (DIN to RCAs):

“I own both the Graham IC-50 and IC-70 tone arm cable. The IC-70 is the superior cable of the two. Using the IC-70 the last several years with the Graham 2.2 tone arm, Koetsu Jade Platinum cartridge, and Basis Debut Vacuum turntable has been very enjoyable.

A problem developed after I replaced the Graham 2.2 tone arm with the Graham Phantom tone arm. The Phantom is a far more revealing tone arm than the 2.2. The IC-70 cable now sounded bright and hard, grainy at the high end and weak in the bass. The biggest loss was the richness of the Koetsu midrange. I'm not taking about warmth, but a very thin sound with loss of body to the midrange of the Koetsu.

I replaced the Graham IC-70 cable with a Revelation Audio Labs Paradise Cryo-Silver Reference Tone Arm Phono cable. The Revelation was burned in with a friend's Cable Cooker after I owned it one week. After several weeks of burn-in, the sound is outstanding!

The Revelation Audio Labs is the best phono cable I have heard; and I have tried many. The highs are detailed without hardness; the midrange is rich and musical. The bass is tight, deep and powerful. The soundstage is huge with enhanced depth. Most importantly, it draws me into the musical performance.

In the past, I was sucked up in the audiophile fantasyland of cables. I owned very expensive Transparent Audio cables. My "Revelation" occurred after I tried a relatively inexpensive cable and found it to be superior to the Transparent cables I owned. This does not mean Transparent Audio is dishonest; they are excellent in marketing their product. Remember, they are a business, not a charity.

We consumers have to use our heads and mostly our ears.

My system is now entirely Revelation Audio Labs cables. I ordered Paradise balanced interconnect cables and Testament loudspeaker cables from Revelation Audio Labs. They are far less in price than the Cardas Golden Reference interconnects and Silversmith Silver speaker cables I am presently using. I have found that price has very little to do with the ultimate sonic experience with cables. I guess it took me a long time to think for myself.

Remember that Revelation Audio Labs sells direct. It is a small operation with no dealer network, minimal inventory; they build cables when they are ordered. Overhead is far less here than a company such as Kimber or Cardas. Also, the usual dealer markup in audio is 40%. The dealer has his overhead as well.

Is the Revelation Audio Labs the best phono cable? How could I ever know or determine this. The important thing is that it gives me a great deal of pleasure when listening to my music. This is what excites me.

By the way, don't you ever try a Precept AC power cable from Revelation Audio Labs. Like a XXX potato chip, you can't stop at one! I purchased seven (7) of these babies because I felt they were outrageously good.

This, my friend, is the pure audio hobby: buying an unknown product with most likely a very limited resale value — buying a product because it fulfills your musical expectations.

The Revelation Audio Labs cables have provided me with one fine ride.”    — S.P.

“Finally found the time to get my dealer to come over and set up the Phantom arm two weeks ago. When he had finished, he said he was not happy with this particular sample and asked Graham for another one. This took an extra week to arrive from the States. Anyway, we finally kicked off last Friday and everything sounded good but we had a system hum. So yesterday morning I opened up my ancient Sonic Frontiers step up amp and pre-amp, meticulously took out every valve and cleaned their plugs, etc., as well as all the RCA's on the back plate. That did the trick. Basically, the system has no particular sound, it just plays music, which is what it should do. All I can say is that considering the front end sets the pace of the whole system, the arm, cartridge, turntable and your cable simply have no sonic signature I can detect. As a combo, they are totally neutral, not bright, not dull, just totally transparent and not there. Thanks for a great cable! PS: system is as follows: Simon Yorke S7 turntable, Graham Phantom tone arm, Virus MC cartridge (limited production from Switzerland), Sonic Frontiers SFL-2 Signature series pre-amp, Sonic Frontiers SFP-1 Signature series phono stage, Gamut D200 Mk 3 power amp, Magnepan 2.7 speakers.”    — God Bless, Ian, UK
