A fine first upgrade to freebie interconnects Tested at £30

Our Verdict

For a first upgrade to freebie interconnects, these should do your system proud

For

  • Can help gain detail

Against

  • Smoothness and punch not quite as good as some

Put to the grindstone with The Beatles’ Strawberry Fields Forever, this Clearer Audio interconnect helped our kit gain some good detailing, we found, together with a well-integrated tonal range including a smooth bass and sweetly chiming midrange.

In fact, there’s lots to like here, although we felt Chord’s slightly pricier Crimson Plus enabled a touch more punch and smoothness to emerge.

For just £30, though, this is a good buy, and should be on your upgrade shortlist.
