Best Buy Award: van den Hul CS – 122 HYBRID

The magazine’s comments:

With no less than three gongs in this year’s Awards van den Hul is on a roll, the CS – 122 HYBRID making an appearance for the second year running. Using an unusual mix of silver-coated oxygen-free copper and carbon conductors, the CS – 122 HYBRID pays off when it comes to detail, delicacy and dynamics. Vocals and instruments sound supremely natural, treble is open and intricate, while bass sounds both powerful and well controlled. All in all this is a tremendously well judged cable that really pays dividends in high-end rigs.
