Our Verdict 
Definite sonic capability, but needs a good deal to be worthwhile

Elements of treble refinement and vocal subtlety
Against 
Not the complete cable
trounced for dynamics
Reviewed on

The semi-transparent design of the SHQ series of higher-performance Vivanco cables gives the SHQ TT12 a cool modern look.

And reassuringly, given its higher price, it delivers concrete sonic improvements over the stablemate Prowire, with more refinement to the treble and subtly enhanced vocal realism.

However, the cheaper Atlas Fibre Optic is still more complete, while the TCI Coral trounces it for dynamics, so a good deal is essential.
