Enhancing the performance of the highly awarded Twist, the Black Rhodium Twirl speaker cable has larger conductors for lower impedance due to a 2.5 square mm conductor cross section, over three times the size of Twist.
Low Transient Phase Distortion
The twirl also has a thicker insulation resulting in lower ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ because the generated magnetic field in the wires reduces as distance between them increases. Providing an even clearer diction of the words sung by massed choirs due to this lower Transient Phase Distortion, the cable also retains the award winning features of the Twist.
High Grade Cable for Best Hi-Fi Quality
When the quality of hi-fi system justifies a higher grade cable, the Twirl is ideal for long cable runs with less signal loss than other comparable quality cables at a similar price point. The Black Rhodium Twirl gives a very tight bass and stable stereo images due to its low impedance giving the amplifier greater control of movement of the loudspeaker bass drivers.
Reduce Inteference and Distortion
Twisted along its length, the cable is prevented from acting as a “loop aerial” for airborne radio frequency interference which can audibly distort the sound quality. Manufactured in England, the cable's silicone rubber insulation is used for low dielectric loss ensuring extremely low distortion due to sound energy in absorption effects being absorbed in the insulation and released at a later interval to create highly audible time-smearing distortion.
Enhanced Music Reproduction
The positive and negative cores are connected in opposite directions. When cables are connected this way and in the same direction, the noise floor between notes lowers giving ‘blacker’ silences in the interval between musical notes and enhances reproduction of the musical edges and natural decays in music.
Terminated with Black Rhodum Z-Plugs
To prevent the Twirl cable losing its twist during handling, it features a printed heat shrink to bind the two conductors six inches from the end. Terminated with high quality gold plated Z plugs, it offers a secure fit for improved connection. Also available with Rhodium plated Z-plugs for a £60 premium (please call us to order).
Twirl was pleasingly accurate, along with clear instrumental and vocal separation that added scale. Additionally, this well organised sound stage supported bass precision so my ear didn't miss a thing. (Hi-Fi World Magazine Feb 2013)
‘...takes the basic Twist design and effectively builds upon it to provide gradations of improvement, within a familiar ‘house style’. It enhances perceived detail, expands the soundstage and improves the complexity of the presentation.’ (Hi-Fi World Magazine Feb 2013)
‘A balanced presentation with delightful tonal accuracy, the Twirl is a worthy system upgrade… Value for money, open midrange, expanded soundstage.’ (Hi-Fi World Magazine Feb 2013)
Whereas others throw detail at you, Twirl is more subtle than that, proving altogether more beguiling to listen to – and a fine partner to systems with bright sources or speakers that need taming.’ (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine June 2013)
‘It keeps a vice-like grip on the bass, which seems able to start and stop as fast as an LED. This makes it enormous fun to listen to, yet never fatiguing. Factor in a nice, crisp, airy treble and it is sure to prove very popular indeed.’ (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine June 2013)
‘It presents a generally powerful sound that is large in scale. It proves quite distinctive tonally, with the bass being a major facet of what makes its sound so good – its power, roundness and timbre is remarked upon… Indeed, this panellist considers its bass warmth, midband detail and clean treble to be “the best combination of everything”; this loom is certainly a very good all-rounder. ’ (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine August 2014)
‘Clear, powerful and musical sound yet smooth too… Highly convincing performer at the price.’ (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine August 2014)
