Audioquest NRG 1.5 review

This Audioquest mains cable is a real showman at heart with its lively and well-integrated performance; but it's not entirely without its foibles

Our Verdict

A dynamic and lively cable that's precise but not entirely faultless

For

  • Precise images
  • well-integrated sound

Against

  • Hints of judder with motion

From the off it's clear this AudioQuest is a showman at heart, promoting a dynamic and driving feel from our Sky+HD box that's bolstered by a lively and integrated sound complete with supple and solid bass and sweetly chiming midrange and treble.

Images are precise, naturally toned and clear with Philips' Eco TV.

Our only criticism was the odd judder to fast motion – but that's still not something we expect at this price.
