- Smooth grasp of motion
- dynamic, wide sound
- great value for money
We liked Merlin's three-pin Tarantula so much we gave it an Award – and its reassuring to see that its figure-of-eight version has the same qualities.
This mains lead gave our reference setup a natural colour palette and a smooth, supple grasp of motion, even during taxing scenes.
It's no slouch with sonics either, and its wide sound is bang on, although top-end finesse could've been better.
The Tarantula offers the most bang for your buck.
