What Hi-Fi? Verdict

Our budget cable Best Buy for three years on the trot

Pros

  • + Excellent performance for a budget cable

Cons

  • - Can sound a tad lean

This excellent product has been our budget cable benchmark. Indeed, in 2007 it bagged a What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision gong for the third year running.

Some may say it sounds a tad lean, but as long as you partner it with suitable electronics, you'll be privy to a fantastic sound.
