What Hi-Fi? Awards 2021: First Winners Announced 4th October!
I see what you did there….😁So what's the worst piece of hifi kit you have ever purchased ?.
The worst hifi idea you ever had ?
I had some quite expensive VDH interconnects about 12 years ago. When I compared them to some Atlas Navigator interconnects, the VDH were about 30% quieter! No wonder they sounded ‘rolled off’……If you want to class it as a bit of kit, I would have to say a length of VDH speaker cable. Just flat and lifeless and took all the energy out of my music.
Others swear by it, but not for me.
Other than that, I've kind of always done ok.
Though thinking about it, I did get a bit excited about a Tricord diablo phono stage during a shop demo and bought one. I didn’t quite live up to it at home, so a lesson learnt there.
I'm generally reluctant to criticise kit too much, as there is rarely bad kit, but usually poor matching.
Don't know about volume, but the VdH speaker cable I had tried to turn all bass notes into the same one, at least on certain tracks.If you want to class it as a bit of kit, I would have to say a length of VDH speaker cable. Just flat and lifeless and took all the energy out of my music.
