Black Rhodium Foxtrot Speaker Cable allows you to enjoy excellent sound quality which can be further enhanced with the addition of Quickstep for the superior sound of the Graham Nalty 'Straight Line Contact' plugs. Foxtrot is high end sound without the hefty price tag which mean it can deliver to a much wider audience.
It is hand built at the Black Rhodium factory in Derby using selected components and materials with a proven record for sound quality enhancement as demonstrated in Black Rhodium’s range of high end cables including an ultra low ‘Proximity Effect’ Magnetic Field distortion due to added inter-conductor distance due to attractive braid over conductor.
Foxtrot also boasts very good flexibility, low transient phase distortion, Gold plated Z plugs and mechanical vibration suppression materials used in Construction along with RFI noise reduction technology.
All this results in a very clear diction of a singer’s voice and separates musical instruments superbly through a dramatic reduction of ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ by using thicker insulation than is usual in speaker cables abd increasing the distance between conductors. Thereby reducing the magnetic field seen in each conductor wire as a result of the magnetic field created by the current in the other conductor wire.
A further increase in the distance between conductors is achieved by use of the attractive cable braid and this further reduces ‘Proximity Effect’ distortion. By very substantially reducing this form of distortion, the music becomes clearer and more dynamic, with greater ambience and experience of the music’s emotional qualities.
Foxtrot Loudspeaker cables are terminated with high quality gold plated Z plugs, specially selected for their excellent sound quality. Rhodium plating is applied to the GN-1 plugs to ensure a cleaner and less corroded contact is maintained between the plug and socket and its effect a much livelier and more exciting sound from the music.
Additional security of the connection between the cable and plug is provided by a set screw that clamps the outer insulation of the wire.
'Perfectly conveying the power and fullness of this drum roll... The twittering of the strings is so clear that I can almost identify the individual violins playing in the orchestra.' (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine June 2016)
'Overall the music is both intimate in the quieter sections and stately with great dynamics than I am used to with this recording.' (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine June 2016)
'While I also sense that the musical edges are well defined, and the natural decays of each note of the harpsichord add to the overall realism of the reproduction.' (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine June 2016)
'Foxtrots certainly deliver a delightfully open and effortless sound... Imaging and timing are both excellent.' (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine June 2016)
