How the Laws of Physics influence how good your music sounds

Black Rhodium’s extensive research into improving the sound quality of your cables shows quite conclusively that all the ways in which cables distort the sounds from your music can be fully explained by a thorough grounding in the Laws of Physics.

Black Rhodium engineers have identified the 7 Laws of Physics that each describe how the highly sensitive audio signal that translates into your music can be changed by external influences.

We have also developed about 20 different ‘distortion bustin’ engineering techniques that reduce audible distortion in a cable and deliver smoother and more natural music through your speakers or earphones.

Many of these ‘distortion bustin’ techniques are standard electrical design features used extensively by engineers in all branches of electrical engineering. To these we add some of Black Rhodium’s original design techniques developed from our extensive research and cable testing auditions.

With up to 20 different ‘distortion bustin’ design tools available for us application, we apply extensive auditions to select the optimum combination of these to ensure that you can enjoy the very best sound whatever your budget.

In future newsletters and blogs, we will explain the science behind our cables in more detail.

Black Rhodium Intro range – your introduction to music

Our Intro range of cable products are designed with the first time buyer of a music system in mind. If you are buying your first music system, we do not expect you to be familiar with the enormous variety of excellent cables available in the shops or online. Your first consideration will be to select the equipment that simply plays the music sources your wish to hear. And cables will simply be the means to connect your hardware.

But you will want good sound quality. You want to choose cables from a company with a proven record in delivering excellent sound quality. So you choose Black Rhodium.

And we at Black Rhodium offer you simple, effective, proven cables that play music – enjoyably. We use simple designs based around high quality materials that we are confident

you will appreciate.

New Affordcables for the Black Rhodium Intro range

A typing error created our new ‘buzzword’ for our latest loudspeaker and power cables. ‘Affordcables’ are cables that we consider to be capable of extremely high quality sound at very modest ‘affordable’ prices.

Twist Classic and Libra Classic have been developed to go into systems alongside our recently launched Minuet RCA stereo interconnect. Our task – to make the maximum improvement in sound from both Twist and Libra – and we are very happy with what we have achieved. Try them in your music system and enjoy the music!

We have been very pleased to welcome to our Derby factory, Dyson Lai of Audio Access who distributes Black Rhodium’s cables in Hong Kong and the Republic of China. We took the opportunity to show Dyson some of our very latest cables and to discuss with him the special requirements of his market.

Tip of the day

Check the direction of all your cables. Many cable manufacturers will label their cables with a direction arrow. This is accepted as flowing in the direction from source to speakers. Ensure that all your cables follow this. If there are no direction arrows, go with the direction of print on the jacket of the cable.

When you have done this and you like ‘tweaking’ for best sound, you may wish to check each cable in reverse. In some cases, you may get a slight, but audible, improvement when you reverse a cable. If the cable sounds better in reverse direction, leave it there. But this is usually the exception to the rule.
