Clearer Audio Copper-line Alpha (spk) review

A decent enough cable that excels with timing Tested at £10.00

What Hi-Fi? Verdict

Chunky, it excels at timing and will pound out a rhythm track with confidence


  • +

    Excellent timing, banana plugs


  • -

    Chunky, lacks resolution

This chunky cable excels at timing. It'll pound out a rhythm track with confidence and has the refinement to deal with below-par recordings. It needs better detail resolution to worry the class-leaders, though. Banana plugs are flash, with the cost of termination being £70.
