What Hi-Fi? Verdict

A solid performance, but the Clearer Audio can’t quite match the value of QED’s cracking cable

Pros

  • + Solid performance

Cons

  • - Lacks depth of field
  • - might lose 1080p over long distances

We loved the 1m version of the Copper-line, awarding it five stars. However, this 8m length falls short of our ideal. It lacks the depth of field and rapid-action smoothness of the best, so the Copper-line wire merits an average verdict.

The company states this cable loses 1080p compatibility when it crosses the 5m threshhold, but it worked fine in our system.
