Audioquest VDM-1 review

Smooth operator with refined and pleasing sound, and a really well-made feel. Tested at £43.00

Our Verdict

Smooth and stylish, this is a good all-rounder.


  • Refined sound, great build


  • Lacks a little bite

Without casting aspersions on the fine cables at the budget end of this group, the AudioQuest instantly feels superior.

The snakeskin style design covers a two-layer silver-plated shield, itself on top of a hard cell foam that protects the all-important conductor.

All this means little if we don't like what we hear, but thankfully the VDM-1 reveals a pleasing, refined sound. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the cable does lack a little bite at times, but it remains a smooth operator.
