Our Verdict 
This is by no means a bad cable, but it’s no class leader either
Open sound
rich colours
Lacks naturalness
needs more dynamics
motion judders
Reviewed on

French manufacturer Real Cable is new to us, its EHD-Flat feeling like a well made, if slightly odd-looking brute.

It does much right though, with images appearing rich in depth and colour, although they lack some of the naturalness of the class-leaders, and skin tones appear a touch overdone.

Edges here are nicely sharp, while detailing isn't far behind. Motion is subject to the occasional judder though.

A wide, open soundNoticeably, the EHD-Flat produces a wide, very open sound that projects well, although it could do with a pinch of dynamics to make it really shine during action scenes such as the appearance of the Balrock in The Fellowship Of The Ring.

It is by no means a bad cable, but it's no class leader either. It's more than adequate, but for just £10 more, we'd take the Chord Supershield.
