Seeing this cable is more expensive than the Ecosse Picture Perfect Ultra cable, which we have also tested, you'd expect to see a step up in performance with the Ultra Plus – and you do.

The improvements are immediately apparent, especially with sound quality. Dynamically, it's amongst the best HDMI cables around.

Punchy sound
During the opening credits of Casino Royale, the Ultra Plus allows for a punchy, powerful, yet composed sound – and it brings a real sense of drama to movie soundtracks such as Sweeney Todd.
