Tara Labs cables

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by TheGeneral, Feb 1, 2002.


  1. Has anybody used the Tara Labs instrument or speaker cables? $350 for a cable seems quite spendy. Is there truly an audible difference in the sound, or do you have to have pristine mastering-engineer ears to hear it?

    I use one connecting my head to cabinet. It's my opinion that there's an audible difference. Is it worth hundreds of dollars? Only if it is to you. It is to me.

    Waste of money. The only people who can hear a difference are the ones who got suckered into buying 'em. What else are they going to say?
     
  4. I agree with Munji; cables, for the most part, is cables. You definitely DON'T need to spend $350 for a friggin' cable.

    $350? Sheesh. I do own some TaraLabs cables, but they are $1/ft hi-fi speaker cables. Even those new Fender cables are too costy for me. I currently have a homemade cable, works nicely and cost something like 5 bucks.
