The £100K High-End Speaker Cable & Interconnect Test, Best Results Yet!

This picture shows one of the final cable tests. This is a narrowed down selection of some the best and most musical performers, I have found over the years.

I have been aware for many years that the most costly is not often the best solution, comparing and reviewing all cables back to back throughout the entire cable range from very affordable cables right through to cost no object has been very interesting and worth while.

The systems used during these cable tests were varied at different levels, equipment is listed below:
