DH Labs Prelude Speaker cable

Good day.  I am looking for new speaker cable and a good friend ( over in the UK ) suggested I take a look at the DH Lab Prelude speaker cable.

He noted its good tonality and timbre while being fairly priced.

I have not been able to locate a site in which to hear it but wonder if any of the fellow goners  have sampled it?




I don't know how that would do you any good, unless of course they let you take it home and try it in your own system.

Not a lot of stores carry DH Labs.  While not exactly a direct to consumer brand, they don't spend a lot on promotion or packaging.  I see their cables in places like Cable Company or Parts Connexion.  Audioquest/Cardas they are not.  Order direct and you'll get your cables in a plastic bag.

I run Q-10s and like them.  Replaced Kimber 8PR and sound a little brighter which I like.  I would think the Preludes would give you same as other copper cables, nothing less. Personally I would go with T-14s, they aren't that much more.

I think their cables are a good value.  No hype or gimmicks or fancy crap, just a good quality cable.  If you go bulk and terminate your own, for some reason they are a bit less expensive on eBay.

Do you mean from a marketing point of view they are not Audioquest/Cardas; or do you mean from a sonic quality point of view?


DHLabs is my go to budget cable / interconnect. They are outstanding. Very neutral and work well in all applications I have ever used them. I have a couple sets of interconnects, Ethernet, power cords, and USB. They have never been anything but a great improvement over the original equipment and are only bested by much more expensive cables. I highly recommend them. 


Sorry I meant you aren't going to get fancy outers or boxes etc.  No frou frou.

I replaced Cardas Iridiums on my phono with DH Labs Pro Studios with no loss in quality.  

I think the sweet spot in their product line is their silver coated copper.
