Black Rhodium Announces The Launch of The ALLEGRO 75 Ohm Digital Cable.
The new ALLEGRO is a 75 Ohm cable designed for digital audio that uses the latest high end cable technology to deliver enhanced sound quality.
ALLEGRO is hand built at the Black Rhodium factory in Derby to include advanced design techniques developed by Black Rhodium for use in its most expensive products.
The special design features of ALLEGRO include:
• VS-4 Vibration Stabiliser to reduce distortion due to microscopic vibrations in the cable from both internal and external sources
• Precision UK manufactured 75 Ohm cable with low loss PTFE insulation
• Silver Plated conductors for superior high frequency transmission
• Braided screen to minimise RFI noise on the signal conductor
• Large size ferrites to minimise RFI noise generated over the screen
• Rhodium plated RCA connectors with special ‘Straight Line Contact’ return connection
Vibration Stabiliser To Reduce Distortion
ALLEGRO has been designed to apply the musical benefits of the GN LEGACY VS-4 Vibration Stabiliser to ALLEGRO 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.
Precision UK Manufactured 75 Ohm Cable With Silver Plated Conductors
ALLEGRO uses a unique UK manufactured 75 Ohm cable. Silver plated conductors allow superior high frequency transmission to be achieved through superior conductivity.
Silver Plated Wires for Superior Clarity of Sound and Clearer Highs.
Silver wire is well known for its superior sound quality. The relatively high cost of pure silver wire compared with copper precludes its use in all but the high end ranges of audio cables. A very cost effective compromise is the application of a thin surface of silver over copper wire. As higher frequencies travel over the outer surface of the wire, the silver plated wire in ALLEGRO delivers a large part of the sound quality benefits of silver at a small extra fraction of the cost.
Anti RFI / EMI Technology to Further Reduce Distortion.
ALLEGRO is covered in a tightly braided screen to protect the inner cores from picking up radio frequency interference (RFI). Further screening is provided by twisting the cores. An untwisted cable has a large surface area that can more easily pick up RFI/EMI signals generated from Radio, Wifi, Mobile Phones and even central heating systems. The screen is connected at only end in the RCA terminated cable only to prevent ‘loop aerials’ between equipment picking up noise.
This reduces the amount of audible distortion in the cable, allowing cleaner, clearer sounds to be enjoyed from your equipment.
ALLEGRO is protected from the RFI by two large ferrite cores located close to each of the plugs. This prevents RFI noise voltages from entering the equipment at either end and distorting the music by inter-modulation effects.
Low Loss PTFE Insulation Used To Reduce Time Smeared Distortion.
The silver plated wires in ALLEGRO are insulated in PTFE because its low dielectric loss ensures extremely low distortion. This is due to dielectric absorption effects in which sound energy is absorbed in the insulation and released at a later interval of time to create highly audible time-smearing distortion.
High End Rhodium Plated Connectors
ALLEGRO is terminated with ultra-high quality Graham Nalty Legacy Range GN-4 RCA connectors. These have been specially manufactured to ensure that Black Rhodium cables deliver the very best sound quality possible.
ALLEGRO can also be terminated with gold plated BNC connectors.
