Reviews From Respected Publications

"Recommending this product is a no-brainer."

"There is no question that the Cooker works as advertised, and no denying the extraordinary sonic benefits of fully breaking in audio cables."

- Wayne Donnelly, EnjoytheMusic.com

"Let me be blunt: Anyone who claims there isn’t a clearly audible difference between virgin and properly conditioned cables, at least from out of the bunch I tested, is clearly hard of hearing."

- Srajan Ebaen, Sound Stage

 

"Remarkable sonic improvements were noted in all treated cables, be they of interconnect, AC power cord—or even the Sound Application AC line conditioner persuasion."

"This is one accessory that no self respecting or group of audiophiles should be without!"

Myles Astor, Positive Feedback

What customers have to say...

You've made a believer out of me! No amount of time in my system would ever have wrought the improvements the Cable Cooker accomplished. I cooked my cables for 72 hours (7:30 P.M. Wed. to 7:30 P.M. Sat.) on my new Anniversary model and then re-installed them.

Every single aspect of sound is far better and, more to the point, the MUSIC is transformed!

I hear no deficiencies relative to sound (music) before cooking and, in fact, I can't find anything that has not improved! That's quite a feat as , usually, gains made in one aspect are accompanied either by losses (or stasis) in another.

Not here!! Everything is on the plus side of the ledger.

WOW, WOW,WOW, and HOLY MOLY! The effect of the Cable Cooker is absolutely terrific! How can this be, he queried?
I have literally thousands of hours (over 20 years) on some of the cables I cooked. Yet, 72 hours on the Cable Cooker yielded a new level of detail and a heightened sense of musical enjoyment. The Cable Cooker is the real deal. Again, wow!

 

"Just a follow up to let you know your Cooker has been working great. Times you originally gave me were right in the zone needed for optimum burn-in. Cables have been sounding great, and we've been getting good feedback from clients."

Alan:

I just opened the package and my first e-mail to you is fully justified. Anything, particularly anything of real value, should be packaged and presented in a way that respects and reflects the values of the presenter. Your care in packaging is manifest and, again, much appreciated.

Hi Alan,

Just a short note to let you know about the cables. Well, there is now more of everything. The stage has gotten wider and more populated. There is new music in old music. More detail without being bright.

All in all, money well spent. I have recommended your service too.

 

Hello Alan,

First of all. I wanted to thank you for the fast delivery of my Audiodharma Cable Cooker. I promised you that I will write about my opinion about this unit. I Do admit, I was little sceptical before the purchase and risk I made was heavy with this scepticism about this gear in my head. And…… I must say IT IS IS A MUST HAVE for any serious music listener from an audio – gear!

Now after a month of burning all my capacitors ( Duelund VSF and CAST ) I'm not anymore asking myself what I have been done wrong with the capacitors upgrade. I have used these 12uF Duelund Capacitors for the High-band speaker for 1 year, and changed 2-3 amplifiers because I thought that there lays the problem with openness and sweetness that I was missing after the upgrade (my amplifier was broken about the same time I was upgrading on Capacitors in the speakers so in my opinion was that the Amplifier was the cause of this hardness in sound).

After 2 weeks of burning the wires of Crossover and the capacitors the sound became true Hi-End ! Now I will have to do the same with 50uF Duelund CAST and 40uF Duelund VSF, the same treatment to be sure those are fully open the potential of those Capacitors. Duelund have to inform the customers of those capacitors to make clear that they don`t work at all before proper Burn-IN procedure.

In my case this is the best investment in years in accessories for Audio-Gear!

Dear Alan,

I now have had a chance to use the Cable Cooker and can say that what if does is a true revelation. It is truly magical!!! It is one of the most cost effective upgrades in all of audio. Your equipment even sounds much better. You really cannot assess your equipment without using the treated cables. Moreover, you cannot assess your cables until they are treated. For example, a treated Cardas Cross cable sounds better than an untreated Cardas Golden Reference interconnect. In addition, the music now sounds more open, transparent and fluid with better imaging. They have always emphasized cable and equipment break-in in audio magazines but it easy to be skeptical when they say 500 hours of play are required to run-in a cable or amp. Who has the time?

I want to congratulate you for developing this outstanding device. I know Robert Harley has written a number guides for audiophiles but I think he should cover the Cable Cooker as essential component of any audio system. Thank you for a job well done!"

....Kindest Regards, Gary

 

Thanks again for the phono cable adaptor! Still hard to believe the difference burning in the cables can make even after having been doing just that for over three years. The phono cable may be the single biggest improvement in cable burn in yet. You’ve heard that before I am sure.

….Best, Steve

 

I am happy to report that the cable cooker was just magical!! How you do it, I do not know. What amazes me is how can ANYONE buy cables and not buy the Cooker. Alan, I seriously think you should publicize more about the products. No audiophile should carry on listening without pre-cooking their cables. It is as simple as that for me!!! Thank you once again for the excellent service. I wish you the best for your ventures.

The cooker is working superbly for me, and is truly indispensable. The interconnects I am making need at least four days on the Cooker – I haven’t tried any longer than that yet. They certainly sound good after four days and don’t exhibit any of the downsides of over-Cooking, but I shall try a slightly longer burn soon and see what happens.

The sound does get better over the next 2 to 3 days but nothing like the variation I experienced with the 3 day burn. With a four day burn my customers all report that the sound is beautifully balanced, with the small added caveat that the top end opens up just a bit after a couple of days.

I received the phono din adaptor cable today. It’s exactly what I was hoping and looking for. Easy instructions and perfect! I will soon be burning in some of my phono cables AND tonearm wire. This sort of device has been long overdue in terms of needfulness. Thanks very much.

….Jeff Lee

 

Chris and I are always shaking our heads at people who don’t try the Cable Cooker. And then they have the temerity to complain that their cables don’t sound right. I’ll say this again. Analog fans, especially, need to get a Cable Cooker. They simply have no idea how good their turntables can sound. They have no idea that the tiny tonearm wires are holding back the music.

…John Lum

 

My colleagues and I have used the Cable Cooker on hundreds of cables. Having done so, we can’t fathom how other people refuse to acknowledge or try the Cable Cooker. If they haven’t used a Cable Cooker, they do not know how a cable truly performs.

It doesn’t matter if I’m Cooking the Antares or the throwaway patch cord that came with my DVD player. The Cooker works the same on both.

…John Lum

 

The unit is fantastic. As all of my interconnects and cables (speaker and power) were previously broken in (or so I thought), I was astounded at the results. Dynamics better, frequency extremes better, more detail. I love it. Very easy to use.

…Thanks again, Jon

 

Well done! I love it, I could not imagine adding a cable for evaluation that has not been Cooked. Feel free to quote me.

…Rick Schultz of Virtual Dynamics

 

Thanks for making a GREAT product, that delivers an unparalleled audio value, transformed my Bybee filter, and metamorphosized my Richard Gray.

…Mark Hampton of Zcable

 

I am most impressed. My vinyl has never sounded better!!

…A.D. Banerjei

 

The Cable Cooker arrived safely some days ago. Meanwhile, for the beginning, I have cooked all my interconnects. The result is stupendous since they were already “broken in”.

The beneficial effect is audible throughout the whole spectrum, from the deepest lows to the highest highs, and spaciousness is more developed too. I will continue to cook the power and speaker cables as well, hopefully with further improvement.

…Daniel

 

Was extremely pleased with the results after having all my cables cooked with the Cable Cooker. There has been a significant improvement in definition, soundstage and a cleaner top-end while the bass is more refined. Many of the “definitive” recordings from the 50s & 60s, such as Klemperer’s Beethoven 3rd & 5th symphonies, have been given a new lease of life. The unit ran without a hitch.

…Anthony

 

The Cooker is perhaps the best single thing I’ve ever used in hi-end audio! I’m completely thrilled with it, and have had no problems whatsoever in its operation. I was amazed EACH time I treated another wire, and flabbergasted when I heard the improvement to power cables. I’m unclear about how long to treat wires, but experimentation plus your and your customers’ track records will, over time, probably be illuminating. Thanks for developing a “must have” device
