Opus Speaker Cable
Black Rhodium Opus Speaker Cable are a two core design that is twisted to provide superior noise rejection properties. Like its fellow Black Rhodium speaker cables, Opus is manufactured in England.
Its small outer diameter comes in at 6.2mm which offers high flexibility and a silky smooth outer surface, so you can be assured of easy installation. The Opus draws reference from the earlier and award-winning Harmony interconnect cable, with some slight changes for improved performance.
OPUS delivers crystal clear diction of a singer’s voice and, through a dramatic reduction of ‘Transient Phase Distortion’, brilliantly separates musical instruments. ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ is lessened by utilizing a thicker insulation (0.6mm wall thickness) than is usually found in interconnect cables, which increases the distance between conductors.
Black Rhodium's uses thicker insulated conductors so that when two electrical conductors carry an electrical current, the current created by the magnetic field in one conductor affects the resistance of the other conductor.
This creates the ‘Proximity Effect’. By placing the conductors of OPUS 1.2mm away from each other, the magnetic field on the other cable is reduced and the ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ is less audible. This effect is noticeable when listening to complex music, for example, large orchestras.
Reduced Vibration Distortion
The external jacket of OPUS is crafted from the silicone rubber insulation that is used to insulate the individual cores.
The distortion caused by mechanical vibration within the cable is reduced by the tight mechanical coupling between the outer jacket and inner cores and the damping effects of the soft silicone rubber. As a result, you can enjoy reduced harshness in your music.
OPUS incorporates two tin plated copper cores for both positive and negative signal flows which are connected in opposite directions. Black Rhodium's acute listening tests have proven that, when connected this way, the noise floor is lowered between the musical notes and offers a more lifelike reproduction of music.
Sharper Sounds, Natural Delays
Silicone rubber insulation is used because of its low dielectric loss and ensures very low distortion thanks to dielectric absorption. By using silicone rubber insulation, OPUS provides you with sharper music and more natural decays
Durable and Long-Lasting
The use of gold plated Z plugs ensure long use and resistance to tarnishing.
Simple Twisted Design
The cores in the interior of the OPUS are twisted together to reduce their potential of picking up high-frequency noise signals that can distort your music.
