Our Verdict

The Nova will offer you a powerful presentation, but bearing in mind the price needs more focus to shine

For

  • Powerful presentation
  • deep bass

Against

  • Lacks focus
  • some hardness

At £40 a throw, the Wireworld Nova 5 has its work cut out, although the business-like styling and durable build quality certainly help.

Sonically, this cable has a powerful presentation with deep, well-founded and energetic bass, but it doesn't conjure the same focus or realism as the TCI's cheaper Coral, and there's also a trace of hardness to the top-end on occasion.

That, plus its price, is enough to count against it
