Cons

  • -

    Rivals are cheaper and offer more

At this lofty price, the Ecosse has its work cut out, but at first listen this modestly styled cable has plenty to offer.

It's a spacious-sounding performer, offering a welcome advantage in openness and high-frequency expression compared with its budget rivals.

But rivals are cheaper, while offering as much capability for less of your money. Given that some of these rivals are up to £20 less, that's enough to dock a star from the Director SE.
