The difference between this Russ Andrews and the sub-£100 cables is immediately apparent. This quirky-looking interconnect is fitted with optional, high-quality WBT plugs. It screws onto your phono sockets, clamping into place and promoting a solid contact.

The Crystal Cu allows for a hugely entertaining, punchy, purposeful sound that captures the flow and dynamics of any genre of music you channel through it.
