Black Rhodium announces the SALSA 1.2mm speaker cable

Brand News | News Room for Our Brands

Press Release | SALSA 1.2 mm cable is based very closely on the very popular SALSA cable with one difference: The insulation of the individual conductors has been increased from a thickness of 0.8mm to 1.2mm.
The reason behind this change is that when two electrical conductors carry an electrical current, the magnetic field produced by the current in one conductor affects the resistance of the other conductor. This is known as the ‘Proximity Effect’. Because the loudspeaker load is reactive, the current and voltage in the speaker cable are not in phase and the modulation effect produces a ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ signal that distorts sound quality. By moving the conductors of Salsa 1.2mm further away from each other, the magnetic field (which reduces inversely proportionally to the distance) on the other cable is lowered and the ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ is less audible.
This effect can easily be observed when listening to complex musical signals such as massed choirs and large orchestras.
Conductors: 19 x 0.3mm diameter (13 gauge) silver plated copper
Insulation: Silicone rubber type GPC
Outside diameter of cores: 4.5mm
SALSA 1.2mm will be available at these Retail Prices:
Un-terminated £40.00 per metre
3m pair terminated with gold plated 4mm plugs £330.00
3m pair terminated with rhodium plated 4mm plugs. £380.00
