Silver High-Breed Metaphor 2 review

This cable is certainly cheap, and will be great for spicing up a dull system, but it lacks some much needed control and definition Tested at £28.00

What Hi-Fi? Verdict

Ideal for pepping up a dull system, but too bright for us


  • +

    Wide sound

  • +

    lively listen


  • -

    Lack of cohesion

  • -

    unsubtle, vicious top end

This new name interconnect, to us, is a lively listen with a wide sound. It's decent for the price, and the supple midrange and bass work well.

But it suffers from a vicious top end, while production subtleties are stampeded over by a lack of cohesion. To pep up a dull system, this might be ideal; those with treble heavy kit should steer well clear.
