This is another well-made cable, coupled with smart WBT Midline phono locking plugs, ensuring you shouldn't have any issues in terms of connectivity.

If you're worried about length (no giggling at the back) you'll be pleased to hear that £60 buys you 1.5m of cable here.

Up and running, the True Colours Industries Adder, is a good lead that doesn't quite do enough to justify the extra outlay compared to others, such as the QED Performance coaxial. Again it's detail resolution that's lost, and there's a hint of edge to treble sounds, too.
