AudioFoil Music Cables

Made in Atlanta, Georgia   U.S.A 



Hello, we are VERASTARR. A group of exceptionally passionate music lovers and audiophiles. We created this company to give others the opportunity to enjoy music like we do, accurate and lifelike. We believe cables to be a crucial part of a high end audio system. 

VERASTARR AudioFoils are designed to preserve the integrity of recorded music. Once the music signal leaves your source, all bets are off and high integrity cabling is crucial. Your sonic results are in the hands of the cable manufacturer. When using high quality audio equipment, much care was taken in the creation of your components. They are designed to reproduce the music accurately. This means when the signal leaves the source, the cable manufacturers job is to preserve the signal integrity exactly as it leaves that component, and all the way to the speakers. Cables or wires designed to carry electricity are not optimized to preserve musical signal. Some use high quality electrical wire with nice connectors for Hi-Fi cables. These will sound OK, though should you desire to have the utmost in fidelity, then use cables with special materials or construction optimized for musical signal.

Enter, the AudioFoil.

VERASTARR has concluded through many years of music cable design, that the best form for signal transmission is flat foil, not round wire. VERASTARR has also concluded that the use of extra high purity metal is necessary to preserve signal integrity.  The Grand Illusion line of VERASTARR cables is made with our proprietary high purity metal foils and connectors. Furthermore we perform 2 special processes during the manufacture of our AudioFoils that improve the performance over standard high purity metal foil. Inside the cables we use a low loss dielectric (insulation) that has been treated to drain static electricity which is found in every home or office, especially around synthetic carpet. 

AC Power cables have additional features over signal cables in how they are optimized for Hi-Fi equipment. Without boring you with details, the way an AC power cord is constructed will affect how noisy a components power supply is. Noise on the power supply means noise in your components. Small noise. Noise outside of the human hearing range that if present will affect the music signal and alter it ever so slightly causing inaccuracies and degradation. You can think of our Grand Illusion AC power cords like noise filters. We actually do use noise filtration but it is passive meaning it is not in the power transmission path, which causes other problems. Our filters are activated by the electromagnetic field that surrounds an AC power cord and they pull noise off the line, by "sucking out" the damaging noise frequencies. We can not stress the importance enough of a well made audio power cable. It comes before everything.  

When people ask us "How do VERASTARR cables sound ?" Our answer is that they sound exactly like your components do at 100%. They do not add or subrtact anything. They preserve signal integrity extremely accurately. So when the music sounds better after VERASTARR cables are used, you are simply hearing your components more accurately. High fidelity music signal is very sensitive to distortion caused by round electrical wire. If you are not using high purity metal foils as Hi-Fi cables, you are most likely not hearing the full potential of your components. Musical information is very possibly being degraded by the use of materials not optimized for musical signal. Generally speaking, the noise and distortions from sub-par music cables will degrade the soundstage width and depth, affect frequency response, and lessen dynamics. The most common feedback VERASTARR receives after listeners buy and install our our cables is :


  • More Life.  As if someone "woke up" thier system. Quicker transient response (a perfect match for planars),  Noiticeably more defined leading edge (realism is impossible without this)
  • More details in the music. (better low level information preservation) When you remove distortions you "unlock" very low level material in the recording, which amounts to ambient cues, wherein lies the representation of the venue or studio.
  • Wider, deeper soundstage. (sounds 3 dimensional, not flat) This means an image that may regularly go left to right even with the front of the speakers, now layers into 3 distinct areas back behind the wall in your room and forward into the room towards you. It is clear to hear sound move front to back as well as dide to side. What happens after all these is that you get an impression of sound beyond the walls or speakers. 
  • Connection to the Music. Where the rubber hitrs the road. After all, this is what its all about. 

 VERASTARR is comitted to Truth in Music. This means accuracy of transmitted signal. 

If you are also comitted to accurrate musical reproduction, and you wish to hear the truth of exactly what your components are capable of at 100% signal preservation level, then buy some VERASTARR Grand Illusion AudioFoils now. We guarantee your happiness with the VERASTARR sonic upgrade or your money back.     

  Now some cold, hard truth about Audio cables.


1.  Good cables can not "fix" a poorly put together system. even if the gear was expensive there are electrical paramaters which must match well. You cant just throw any old piece of gear together with another. You must know what they work well with and optimize your pairings

2.  All cables degrade the signal, AudioFoils just do it less.

3.  Some like to tune the rig with cabling, it is against our philosophy, tune elsewhere.  


Latest news..


JUNE-NOV - 2018


VERASTARR has been deep underground with the development of an all new cable line to reflect our philosophy better.  We are also releasing a high value line by making Grand Illusion more efficient to build.


More soon !

MAY - 2018



Both Power cords as well as speaker cables are here ! The Statement 3 gets a push in size to 2.5" wide and the foil thickness was increased by 50%. This has changed the resonant frequency of the foil to push the distortion level even lower, as well as fill out the midbass to a greater level. This makes for a smoother, more quiet Stetement without losing any of the leading edge accuracy. These are the new reference of performance from VERASTARR. The most refined line weve ever created. Get some now ! We accept trade ins on any of our Verastarr cables !

Verastarr AudioFoils ..... for the day you realize that cables are the most important part of a World Class Audio Rig

To commerate this, we are releasing a limited amount of the Grand Illusion Statement  III Power cable sold direct only and priced at $10K for 2M. Inquire through email or phone. 


APR - 2008

AXPONA 2018 exhibiting with COS Engineering, PureAudioProject and Whammerdyne Industries in room #729, and in Room# 667 With Grandinote, Boenicke, Vermeuil and Rockna.   

MAR - 2018

Verastarr announces the Statement III A.C. PowerFoil and Statement III SpeakerFoil.  Statement III goes where no man has before. Starting with a whopping 50% more silver in the foil thickness and 5% more in width, sets the Statement III up for heavy gauge duty where it counts. Speaker and A.C. Mains. This means a standard Statement III is just under the AWG of Statement II HC, and with the extra width claims all the benefits. This year we rename the Statement HC to the Statement III GT. After numerous tests we have found the double foil design to sound better with front and components as well. 

Furthermore the Statement III GT will incorporate anti vibration layers tht are ALL NEW for any Grand Illusion Cable, as well as a 100% increase in Ground Plane which doubles as a shield. Whereby the Statement II had a single run ground the Statement III has a double run or quadruple run in the GT. ! 

Final testing and tweaks are being completed with an anticipated ship date of 4-15-2008 !


FEB - 2018

Cable R&D room remodel !! Over the next 2 months we will be gutting and redoing our R&D listening room and rig. We will be prefessionally treating the room acoustically  to get the room +/- 3DB  from 20Hz to 20Khz. or as close as possible ! Next we will be redoing the furniture to include our "Ultimate Listening Chairs" that we designed in conjunction with a major furniture designer from South America. so the whole room will have fixtures optimized for the listening environment. Finally a whole seperate AC system that is isolated from the rest of the building and ONLY powers the audio room, complete with dual silver plated 101 HCOFC Copper ground rods for both Safety ground and Signal ground which will also be isolated. Finally a new audio rack with Jeff Rowland Monoblock Solid State Amplifiers, Pass Labs Crossover, Coda Class A Solid State Bass amplifier, Rockna Wavedream Signature Balanced DAC and severley modified Magnepam 3.7i and a pair of house designed subwoofers. The whole rig is fully differential fron to back. We can jusrt call this setup the "TRUTH" what you hear is what it is..   WOO HOO ! Chairs available from for only $2K

JAN - 2018

VERASTARR Announces the release of the VERAMID vibration/ EMF drain footer. This is the first we know of that combines an isolation cone and an EMF Drain. In the shape of a pyramid (inverted) Our proprietary Natural (from Earth) material helps to pull vibration inside the component out and into a small square of consudtive pllymer that acts as a vibration and EMF "dump" where both these signal degrading enemies of good sound are turned into heat and gone forever.  Priced at only $199 per set of 3 Veramids and 3 dumping blocks in Large and $149 in small. 


 DEC- 2017

VERASTARR Announces the release of an ALL NEW updated line of our Trademark AudioFoils, with a true breakthrough the Grand Illusion EVO. The latest in AudioFoil design allows us to build a better cable and much nore efficiently, but instead of keeping the price the same we have decided to tip our hat to the Audiophile on a more conservative budget, ansd we have slashed the Grand Illusion price in HALF !! This is for the entry level 2 inch wide Grand Illusion in Copper. In order to do this we have dropped the weave jacket in favor of a more resilient and much easier to clean polymer inbedded cloth jacket which adheres directly to the foil dielectric whicxh also has been improved to offer an airtight seal for zero oxidation, This is done without any adhesive on the foil for the best signal transmission. 



NOV- 2017

Excellent show at AXPONA with PureAudioProject and EXOGAL..


MARCH - 2017

Verastarr will be exhibiting at the following shows in 2017.




VERASTARR Announces a new line up upgrades for Open Baffle speakers including Spatial.  


JANUARY - 2017 

VERASTARR announces changes to the line which include the upgrade of 99.9997% for ALL SILVER AudioFoils. The Prestige line will be discontinued except for power cables (since there is no inexpensive way to make a foil power cord)

Outer jacket construction will change for 2017 for a lighter, thinner cable. Due to the design changes VERASTARR AudioFoils will require less labor on our part to produce, and in an effort to make VERASTARR AudioFoils available to a wider listening audience, prices have gone DOWN significantly, and the design is improved. 

We have eliminated round wire in the new speaker cables as well. 





Added to our line of accessories is the Furutech GTX wall plate, vibration gasket and carbon receptacle cover. Thi sis by far the best way to mount a GTX NCF Receptacle to the wall. The plate is a half inch solid aluminum that screws into the wall and makes a nice, flat, solid mounting surface. By installing a NCF Duplex receptacke along with this mounting system you will get a nice upgrade to your sound when combined with our passive filtering AC Power Block. Behind that a home run dedicated circuit back to the panel, and thats all you need for pure, cllean AC power without robbing dynamics.


Verastarr now offers as an option the Furutech FI-C15 NCF R & G low profile IEC plug for Devialet and other low profile applications. 


VERASTARR formally releases the new top of the line Grand Illusion Statement Gold series of cables which utilizes a proprietary alloy foil for the most organic, natural presentation to date. Huge leaps in performance were gained in the interconnects especially.

We now offer shielded RCA as an option as well.

VERASTARR announces a collaboration with Pure Audio Project to test and design Illusion foil upgrade packages for thier amazing high sensitivity open baffle full range designs. The use of Illusion cryo treated foils really brings these lousdpeakers to life. We are currently starting with the Trio 15 Tang Band and its unreal how good these can sound when tweaked with Verastarr cabling. We cant wait to try the Voxativ versions after these !

CES 2016 !!

VERASTARR will be exhibiting in Venetian room 35-108 with April Music. Roll out will be of the newest Statement Power Cables, and the Verastarr AC Power Block. Come and see us !





New for 2016 and starting now is a significant upgrade to the Verastarr line of cables. 

Grand Illusion and Illusion Signature speaker cables will now both come standard with Furutech FP201R Rhodium plated spades. 

Grand Illusion Signature will now come standard with WBT 0681 CU sandwich spades, with option of locking bananas.


 0681 AG pure silver sandwich spades and locking bananas will also be offered as an upgrade choice. 

 Furthermore ....

GI SIG2 XLR will now have fabric covered ends in black like the power cords, and the addition of a leather label instead of the printed heatshrink. 





Doug Schroeders review shows how other cables can have too much bass or too much top end which equals unbalanced, inaccurrate souund reproduction. We do not believe cables should be used for tone control. Verastarr cables are designed to impart no sonic imprint of thier own, but simply vanish and allow your components to be heard at 100% of thier ability. Accuracy=Truth !!

OCTOBER - 2015

Congratulations to the RMAF team ! We won 2 awards for excellence. The third day we had Jeff Rowland Design in the room with the new 625 S2 stereo amp which Jeff himself calls " the culmination of my 30 years designing audio, and I dont think it will get much better than this design" I understood this to mean it is his Masterpiece, and wow.. at $16K one of the best sounding SS amps we have experienced.



Join us in Denver !! We will be showing in Suite 2024 with Antipodes, Vapor Audio, and Lampizator..



AUGUST- 2015

The Verastarr CABLE ELEVATORS are here !!

Finally a cable elevator optimized for Verastarr Grand Illusion cables. They are made from a proprietary composite foam that contains micro Carbon particles to rapidly eliminate static from carpet, as well as from the outer jacket of the cable. Also keeps cables clean, organized and up off the floor. The specialized design includes 3 slots to aid in cable routing and allow many options, all the way to Tri-Amping. Comes in sets of 10 for only $350. 

JULY - 2015


In our desire to reach a deeper user network, Verastarr has re issued legacy cable models as well as reduced the price of the full line.  The existing line was reduced by 30%, and we added a new Statement line to represent the pinnacle of our technology.  In order to do this, the Signature line was brought back to 99.997% purity, and the Statement will remain the highest 99.9997%. The only exception to that is both the RCA and XLR cables which will retain the higher purity level. In addition, we have re-issued the "Series 1" Grand Illusion power cord as a way for you to fill your system with these award winning power cords for an all time low cost.. Series one does not get cryo, nor leather cuffs, and it uses generic audio grade connectors instead of Furutech. Please keep in mind, this is the exact cable build Stereo Times gave the esteemed "Publishers Choice" award, and also the exact cable Hi-Fi News wrote about, so it is still a breakthrough power cord.

May 14 through 17th VERASTARR will be formally introducing our product line to European dealers and distributors in Munich Germany. Come visit us with Davis Acoustique, and April Music !

April - 2015

AXPONA went off amazing and the Grand Illusion Statement was very well received.  We will be doing close comparison with the GI Signature over the next month or so to make sure there is a noticeable upgrade over the Signature. The idea is to make the Signature out of 4 nines silver, and make the Statement the 5 nines cable. This allows you to purchase the full width silver cable at a lower cost, and we will add 30% more width of the foil on the Statement (2 3/8" vs. 2"). Furthermore we have custom fabricated an optimized interface between foil and plug that maximizes the surface area of the connection. In addition we increased the size of the resonating wafers and now add them to both sides of the cable whereas the Signature will be just at the IEC.   

Mar - 2015

VERASTARR develops newest line of power cords called Grand Illusion "Statement".. so far, testing has revealed incredible results !

VERASTARR Exhibit AT CES 2015 - With April Music on 31st floor of Venetian, room 31-320, come visit us !



In 2015 VERASTARR will be implementing our latest refinements to the GRAND ILLUSION cable line using our recently developed "Cable Field Technology" treatments.

A little word on this technology..  As you might have noticed, it seems many established audio companies are using "Crystal" or "Hyper" or some other mysterious name for either Piezoelectric or Ferroelectric mineral treatment to thier products. Some companies dope this material up into rolls with a wire through it for soldering inside components, others pour it inside power strips, or into little boxes with inputs and outputs.. Some will put it into cylinders that plug inline on speaker binding posts or at your IEC inlet for your components. These are all our own iterations of a similar treatment, which is to run the signal through a "field filter" that filters out EMI or RFI from the electromagnetic field around the cables, or does this filtering at the end of untreated cables, or inside the component. Other materials cause the electrons to "line up"making them flow much better through wire or any other circuitboard level component.

We choose to put these treatments inside our cables to negate the need for treatment anywhere else in your audio system. No opening up your expensive components and "modding" them, or putting heavy adapter type "add ons" to your cables stressing or possibly damaging the connector interface. Who wants heavy, clumsy improvements hanging off the back of your components ? We know we do not.  

With Verastarr Audiofoil technology, we are able to treat these electrons over a vast surface area unlike any round cable designs. For instance we can use sensitive "field activated" wafers, which round wire can not. By doing so we treat a broad area of electrons rather than just the outer surface.

Verastarr has spent much time perfecting our treatments, which include ceramic nanospheres, single crystal resonating wafers, carbon nanofibers, Superconducting materials, Spin-inducing materials, Ferromagnetic minerals, and Piezoelectric minerals. We have tried dozens of combinations of minerals as well as combinations of granule or sphere sizes and or wafer thicknesses all so that you.. the seeker of Truth in Music, will enjoy the most accurate, smooth, noise free delivery of signal currently possible using cutting edge advances in material science. 

So anything "CFT", which includes all Grand Illusion 2 designs incorporate these technologies into the build of the cables. 

Keep in mind ALL of this technology is passive and works OUTSIDE the actual signal path. Therefore this is an added advantage over our already phenominal sounding Grand Illusion series of cables. 

Yet again, we fight with the urge to form an eloquent, seductive sales pitch for you, but it simply is not Verastarr to do so.. Our proof is in the listening, not in how good we speak in a piece of advertising. We have all experienced well marketed products that do not stand up to the talk, therefore we spare you the "romance" of poetry, and we simply give our love and expression in the form of audio cables. 

To all of our wonderful friends and clients and even those here just looking, we offer humble blessings in 2015 !!


2015 Grand Illusion Signature 2 receives an upgraded 2 3/8" inch wide 99.9997% pure silver cryo treated foil to give 20% greater surface area per cable to an already "winning" design !  This plus the GI2 treatments and no rise in retail price since 2009, making this cable one of the strongest values in HiFi ! 



 DEC- 2014



Grand Illusion Signature 2 tested at SING Mastering today on PASS LABS X150 monoblocks. Previous cables were Grand Illusion 1. The difference was immediate. Highs smoothed out without losing detail and mid bass seperated farther from vocals. The Grand Ilusion Signature exhibits better instrument  separation,  deeper soundstage, and better clarity than the GI copper version and at the same time maintains a very silky organic and natural feel. If you plan to use the Grand Illusions in the professional studo environment keep in mind the cables work best on Analog gear or converters. 100% digital gear may not reap much of a benefit especially if you have nice clean power. This does not go for digital amps. We clearly heard improvement with the Red Dragon audio engineers next door to us at RMAF. Some customers claim improvement when used on CD transports, so it's more likely to affect pure digital in a home audio rig due to the less than perfect environment. The idea of using expensive cables in the pro studio is to reduce the need for EQ cut or boost. 




Over the next few months we will be perfecting a top notch Guitar / Instrument cable to help support those that make the wonderful music we listen to ! Yes, that is a genuine leather outer jacket on the cable...Stay tuned for more...



Test session/prototyping with GI2 XLR at SING Mastering Studios.. 

Testing by ear is one thing, but bona fide testing in the most critical audio environment of all, the world class Mastering studio is something completely different.. The room alone can be $100K before one piece of equipment is put inside. This means we are not designing cables to compensate for room anomalies such as chairs, windows, ceiling reflections, etc.. 

In other words, the response in a mastering room is so precise, the electric supply so clean, the gear so accurate that ANY improvement in sound without touching a knob or dial is a huge victory.

In fact, the rooms and audio rigs are so good, that it is virtually impossible to unplug and replace cables then listen again to hear a difference.  The only way to compare is to make 2 recordings. One with the cable in place and one without. Then they must be played back simultaneously, so you can A/B instantly on the fly with 2 little buttons on the console. And I'll tell you, as an audiophile who thinks he has pretty good ears, Im deaf compared to a good mastering engineer. So when Verastarr cables end up not leaving the studio after a test, we consider it a job well done.. Lets just say SING Mastering has new XLR's in place. 

The imges show the console using the analog SPL PQ mastering EQ considered by many to be the top of the heap for mastering, as well as a very detailed look at the waveform to show proof that the Verastarr cables did in fact change the waveform vs the industry standard, Mogami..  

In the words of Colin Leonard, SING Masterings founder and engineer... "We cant EQ for clarity"......





For anyone who has an original Grand Illusion power cable, we can now upgrade your cable to include piezoelectric mineral damping, Electromagnetic field resonators, and electron flow enhancers. These are all in house designed Verastarr upgrades, and absolutely improve the cable. You will hear it in the image not necessarily the music per se. The image gets deeper, the background is noticeably quieter, and presence such as leading edge sounds are more apparent and clear without being forward or aggressive. Low end musicality has been improved, and it simply sounds "cleaner" The silver cables in V2 get to the point of taking your system to that rare spot where you forget you are listening to an audio rig.. Youll most likely forget where you are, time will dissappear, and you will melt into a very satisfying, relaxing, soul filling experience. 

As always, we guarantee your 100% satisfaction.. Upgrades are $400 per cable, or $350 if you already have the leather cuffs. We will add leather cuffs to the cables that do not have them. 


Grand Illusion 2 XLRs now shipping !!

 We have redone our GI XLRs to perform even better, by improving the connector to foil interface for better signal flow and integrity, as well as adding a braid shield for chassis ground. We do not tie signal ground to chassis ground. Chassis ground is high purity solid pure silver foil.  You will experience lower noise and deeper detail..

We can upgrade your XLR pair for $250
