Black Rhodium Libra Mains Cable
Black Rhodium is a quality manufacturer of hifi-grade interconnect, power and loudspeaker cables. The company are long established, having spent many years studying and developing a range of technological methods of eliminating noise and retaining the purest possible signal transfer at various price points. They have analysed and scrutinised every aspect of cable design theory and applied additional scientific knowledge to improve the sound of their cables and set them apart from competitor brands.
Black Rhodium have determined seven most important sources of cable distortion; conductor distortion, insulation distortion, radio frequency interference, magnetic field distortion, vibration distortion and connector distortion. Identifying these elements of signal compromise means that they are have been able to directly combat each issue with each cable at each level in order to retain the best possible signal integrity and result in a superior sound quality between your audiophile hifi components.
Libra is designed for use with low current equipment such as CD players, turntables, preamplifiers etc to deliver the very best sound without the expense of giving the cable a high current carrying capacity. LIBRA is suitable for all equipment that requires less than 5 amps of continuous current.
The benefit of thicker insulation 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 LIBRA and CRATOS 2.4mm 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.
