I replaced my regular Anti-s with Ref Silver. The difference is mainly in the highs...much more extended, delicate, cleaner, and clearer. After lots of break in time, the mids open more as well.

I just ordered the level 2 bi-wired version to use as a backup while my mono block is repaired. I look forward to really giving these cables an honest try. I've had samples before(thanks Stanley) but never tried a full on assault for a prolonged period. I ended up with the Audioquest K2 silver cable and have been happy with it. I really look forward to an extended audition in a quality system.
The Anti Cable story has always interested me because it seems to debunk the "expensive cable is better" assertion. I myself have fallen for the expensive cable thing several times(Transparent, Tara, Audioquest). Honestly, I always thought the cables were somehow worth it. Audio Nervosa?
My concern with this level 1, level 2, level 3, ref...offering is that now Paul has started down the very pathway he set out to debunk. You notice the escalating prices, right? How long before we see a $10,000 Anti Cable?.., and would I buy it? Never say never I guess. Will there actually need to be an Anti-Anti Cable?
