Clearer Audio Silverline Optimus review

We know it's pricy, but if you want a brilliant sound, then there's no denying that Clearer Audio's Optimus should be on your test list Tested at £185.00

What Hi-Fi? Verdict

The sheer brilliance of this cable makes it stand out


  • +

    Bass depth, pure treble, midrange drive, brilliant sound


  • -


Clearly this is a premium cable for premium systems – to connect a CD player to a DAC, perhaps.

But the Clearer Audio Optimus will win you around once you plug it in. It's a terrific sounding cable, outgunning the opposition for bass depth, midrange drive, treble purity and soundstage openness.

Its chunky Super Suppressor collars make it stand out – so does the brilliance of its sound.
