Audioquest Rocket 33 review

The Rocket 33 boasts superb build quality but we'd like more subtlety and less glare

What Hi-Fi? Verdict


  • +

    Awesome looks and build quality, energetic sound


  • -

    Problems with treble

  • -

    struggles with subtle recordings

This biwired speaker cable has the build and te looks, but does it have the sound to match? Yes and no. Tunes bound along with gusto but the delivery is too forward for most tastes. there's a lack of subtlety when compared with the best at this price - and a spot of glare in the treble too.
