Best Interconnect under £100 per pair – Gold Award: van den Hul The WELL HYBRID.

The magazine’s comments:

Not for the first time, van den Hul has made a low-cost cable perform way out of its class. This modestly-priced interconnect features the company’s trademark mixture of silver-plated copper and ‘linear structured carbon’, double screen and all. In practice, The Well communicates the music with graceful ease – imaging is solid, believable and deep, while detail is plentiful and gracefully presented. Solo voices retain their full individual character, and subtle dynamics are handled with great confidence.
