True Colours Industries Coral review

Best digital interconnect, Awards 2010. Excellent optical lead for, say, hooking your Sky box to your receiver Tested at £35

What Hi-Fi? Verdict

Best digital interconnect, Awards 2010. With its detail, fullness and transparency of sound, the Coral really grabs our attention.


  • +

    Amazing levels of detail

  • +

    full sound and great transparency


  • -

    Styling is a bit lightweight

Already a class-leading design – it won its Group Test back in October 2008 – this unassuming TCI design is astonishingly good value for money.

Simply, it delivers more detail, more punch and more poise than any rival in this price class.

Basslines are easier to track and easier to embrace, while voices have character and proper presence in the room. In short, it's a true all-rounder – and a worthy winner here.
