More Information


ENCORE and ENCORE BiWire Loudspeaker cables are based upon the successful design of our acclaimed DUET DCT++ CS Single wire and DUET DCT++ CS BiWire loudspeaker cables (HI-FI News Editors Choice). By removing expensive parts of the manufacturing process, whilst retaining the tried and tested design principles we adopt to produce superior sound quality at the price.

Using Black Rhodium's low "Transient Phase Distortion" together with RFI/EMI filtering which is directly applied to the conductor wire to prevent high frequency noise modulating the signal at either end of the cable.

These treatments are designed to further reduce the amount of audible distortion in the cable, allowing cleaner, clearer sounds to be generated from your equipment.finishing this design to the cable is the usage of "Silicone Rubber insulation" to deliver a Sharper Leading Edges and Natural Decays to your music.

This give the ENCORE speaker cable a very clear diction of a singer’s voice and separates musical instruments superbly allowing more of separation from to your speakers. Adding Black Rhodium's Gold Plated Z-Plugs to the ENCORE, finishes it to enrich your hearing pleasure.

  • Tick Transient phase distortion technology
  • Tick Silicone rubber insulation for low dielectric absorption
  • Tick Twisted conductors for low RFI . with additional RFI suppression
  • Tick High quality gold plated Z-Plug connectors
  • Tick Hand built at the Black Rhodium factory in Derby
  • Tick Mechanical Vibration Suppression Materials used in Construction

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. The benefit in listening is a clearer and more open sound quality.

Anti RFI / EMI Technology.

ENCORE and ENCORE BiWire are continuously twisted along their length to prevent the cable acting as a loop aerial. A cable that is untwisted has a larger surface area, therefore has a greater ability to attract RFI/EMI signals generated from Radio, Wifi, Mobile Phones and even central heating systems.

Silicone Rubber Insulation

Silicone rubber insulation is used because its low dielectric loss ensures extremely low distortion 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. By using silicone rubber insulation, ENCORE and "ENCORE BiWire" guarantee you sharper leading edges to your music and lingering, more natural decays.

Advanced Manufacturing Techniques

ENCORE and ENCORE BiWire use two silver plated copper cores for positive and negative signal flows. These are connected in opposite directions. Our listening tests have shown when connected this way the noise floor between the musical notes lowers. This gives ‘blacker’ silences in the interval between musical notes and enhances reproduction of the musical edges and natural decays in music.

Black Rhodium Gold Plated Z-Plugs.

ENCORE and ENCORE BiWire are terminated with gold plated Z-Plugs, chosen because despite their comparably low cost, do deliver a very high quality sound compared to other types of plug.

Attention To Detail

Additional security of the connection between the cable and plug is provided by a second set screw that clamps the outer insulation of the wire.



Being specially auditioned together by Black Rhodium means you have a winning combination that brings more than just cost to the table. The performance levels delivered to your speakers will enrich your listening pleasure allowing music to ebb and flow as it ought to.
