Black Rhodium launches Flamenco loudspeaker cable


Press release | The Laws of Physics describe effects that occur when electricity flows through a conductor. All these effects change the flow of electricity in the wire.
When the wire carries an audio signal of your music, these changes can be heard as distortion to the music. And they spoil your enjoyment of your favourite music.
Black Rhodium engineers have discovered that there are at least seven Laws of Physics that affect the sound quality of an audio cable including conductor choice, insulation and its susceptibility to vibration and electrical interference.
To counteract these forms of audible distortion, Black Rhodium has tested many different solutions. Some are well known techniques used universally in cable design whilst others have been specially developed by Black Rhodium.
In many cases, Black Rhodium has employed two or more different "distortion busting" design techniques to reduce each type of audible distortion. These act complementarily to deliver greater freedom from distortion and heighten your enjoyment of music.
Very extensive listening tests have been conducted and very many cable samples with small but significant differences in materials and construction have been auditioned. The hours of auditions have created a wealth of valuable design information. The end result is a cable that delivers outstanding sound quality and value for money.
A further leap in sound quality
Black Rhodium have designed the Flamenco loudspeaker cable from scratch to minimise all types of distortion that can influence the sound quality of a loudspeaker cable with many proprietary Black Rhodium "distortion busting" engineering techniques.
Having successfully designed the Charleston loudspeaker cable, Black Rhodium was interested to see if the sound quality of Charleston could be further improved using experience and knowledge gained in developing interconnects and power cables that followed Charleston.
Design of Flamenco
To build Flamenco, Black Rhodium started with conductors three (3) times the cross section of Charleston and applied more than twice the amount of screening against radio frequency interference and magnetic fields. That is the basis of Flamenco.
Listening tests carried out by Black Rhodium showed that even the Charleston loudspeaker cable could be improved by further application of design techniques that made Charleston so successful.
Bass is deeper and fuller whilst treble notes from signers and choirs soar more naturally into the highs with far less sense of congestion.
Flamenco Loudspeaker cables are terminated with Black Rhodium Locking rhodium plated plugs.Rhodium plating is applied to the Black Rhodium locking plugs to ensure a cleaner and less corroded contact is maintained between the plug and socket and its effect is a much livelier and more exciting sound from the music.
Additional security of the connection between the plug and terminal is achieved by turning the screw cover to the plug. This creates a very strong connection that is not easily removed by force.
Flamenco can also be supplied rhodium plated spades to customers’ request.
