Product of the Year Award: van den Hul D – 102 III HYBRID

The magazine’s comments:

This year’s best mid-price model is an old favourite at Hi-Fi Choice. The van den Hul D – 102, now in its Mk III form, is a seemingly unbeatable analogue design that’s suitable for anything from a phono stage to a SACD player and all points in between. We found it hard to criticise this cable – detail is very good and tonality is neutral across the board. Treble extension is exemplary which might explain how it manages to create such impressive image depth and width. All things considered, this is a first-rate performer and a bargain to boot.
