What Hi-Fi? Verdict

At this price, and with these plus points, it's a steal

Pros

  • + High-frequency capability, great energy, great muscle, spacious sound

Cons

  • - Nothing of note at this price

Now here's a company on a roll.

Hot on the heels of a belting review for its Ultraviolet 5/2 USB cable (August 2009), Wireworld has pulled off another cracker with the Starlight 6.

It's an intriguing design, but it sounds great, providing the energy to outmuscle its Chord and QED rivals, plus the high-frequency polish and spaciousness to comprehensively eclipse them. At the price, it's something of a steal.
