Crimson by name, crimson in appearance, this cable not only looks sultry and sophisticated, but also performs in much the same way.

The soundstage is magnificently balanced and defined, detail levels are equally impressive, and the dynamic range is shudderingly good. A superb all-rounder that will suit any sub-£1000 system.
