Black Rhodium Melody Stereo Interconnect
Black Rhodium MELODY and RHAPSODY stereo interconnect cables are based on applying Black Rhodium’s high end cable technology to more modestly specified products to appeal to a much wider audience.
MELODY AND RHAPSODY are 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. The special design features of RHAPSODY and MELODY include:
Vibration Stabiliser On RHAPSODY To Reduce Distortion The RHAPSODY stereo interconnect has been designed to apply the musical benefits of the GN LEGACY VS-4 Vibration Stabiliser to the highly successful TWIST VS-4 loudspeaker cable. The vibration stabiliser has been specially designed to reduce audible cable distortion in cables by limiting the effects of vibrations travelling through the conductor wires which can cause audible distortion to your music.
Low Loss Silicone Rubber insulation for Faster, Sharper Leading Edges and more Natural Decays in Music.
MELODY AND RHAPSODY deliver not only very fast and sharp leading edges to your music but also more natural lingering decays as the notes die down.
MELODY and RHAPSODY stereo interconnects use silicone rubber insulation because its low dielectric loss ensures extremely low distortion due to dielectric absorption effects. Dielectric Absorption occurs when the electric audio signal in the cable is absorbed in the insulation and released at a later interval of time to create highly audible time-smearing distortion.
In addition the soft absorbent nature of silicone rubber absorbs mechanical vibration effects in the cable cores and reduces the audible distortion caused by mechanical energy in the conductor wires.
MELODY and RHAPSODY give a very clear diction of a singer’s voice and separates musical instruments superbly through a dramatic reduction of ‘Transient Phase Distortion’. ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ is reduced by using thicker insulation than is usual in speaker cables, increasing the distance between conductors and 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
