We're fans of Clearer Audio's Copper-line range of cables. Most of the products we've tested offer good, sometimes class-leading performance, at a sensible price. This coaxial digital interconnect doesn't let the side down.

It's a well-made product with high-purity copper conductors and considerable effort put into interference shielding. The ends are terminated with some nice Eichmann Bullet plugs that can be locked firmly into place.

You get a precise presentation that lacks little when it comes to detail resolution and agility. This is particularly impressive when dealing with something as challenging as The Dark Knight's complex OST.

All its sound lacks is a little authority and a decent dose of gusto.
