"With Support taken care of it was time to focus on cables. After having tested a number of interconnects I settled on the Rothwell River. It may appear to be a rather scrawnt affair, but is actually very well made. It uses silver plated copper conductors and has a particularly low capacitance. The lean, uncoloured sound complimented the electronics well, and showed little sign of adding its own sonic footprint."

The River interconnect has been designed as the perfect partner for the Indus SE. Top quality screening and extremely low capacitance make this cable ideal for use with passive pre-amps, but fortunately for anyone with any other equipment, the performance is superb in any system. The reason for this is the high-tec construction and materials employed. The central conductor is multi stranded silver plated copper and the braided earth conductors are also silver plated copper, with PTFE used for the dielectric and FEP used for the outer jacket. The military grade construction achieves a very wide bandwidth with high immunity to radio frequency interference, and - most impressively - a capacitance of just 64pF per meter. This is truly top-grade and music reproduction is neutral and transparent and a good sense of acoustic space is revealed. A superb all round performer.

By the way, you will no doubt notice that River interconnects are very thin compared to most hi-end cables and this baffles many audiophiles. How can they be any good if they are so thin? It would be a more sensible question to ask if run of the mill hi-end cables are any good, just because they are thick. The truth is that most of the overall thickness of many cables is just down to a thick layer of cheap insulation and doesn’t guarantee high sound quality, though it does tend to impress customers in the absence of any real understanding of cable. Rothwell Rivers have an outer jacket of FEP - a hi-tec material which is very tough and a superb insulator without the need for excess thickness.

Well worth the money.

All the speaker cable I've owned with silver plating has sounded way too bright and artificial.....but this cable has me changing my mind. I even had some communication with Andrew Rothwell about this cable and he knows his stuff and I gained confidence to give this cable the benefit of the doubt. It did sound bright at first but after a couple of hours, the ear piercing high frequencies have smoothed out and now. Hard to believe at this price, an interconnect can sound so good.
