roksponsmallThe design of the Tempest and Breeze is based on the Twist, Twirl and Samba speaker cables but include many additional design features.

The special design features of Tempest and Breeze include:

8 x 55g Vibration Stabilisers

Silicone rubber insulation for low dielectric absorption

Thick wall insulation for lower ‘Proximity Effect’ magnetic distortion

Conductors wired in opposing direction for lower noise floor

Twisted conductors for low RFI . with additional RFI suppression

High quality rhodium plated connectors

Hand built at the Black Rhodium factory in Derby

Mechanical Vibration Suppression Materials used in Construction

Rhodium Plated RCA plugs with hourglass silhouette for ease of attachment to equipment.


Tempest and Breeze are treated with Black Rhodium’s DCT++cryogenic processing treatment. This involves temperature processing above and below room temperature. Black Rhodium say ‘The DCT++ process alters the molecular structure of the cable to improve uniformity. The benefits of this are everlasting and bring an improvement to every single aspect of the cables performance’. In addition to the DCT++ process, the cables are also treated with the Crystal Sound Process. Black Rhodium claim that ‘he Crystal Sound process, which is applied to the cable following the completed DCT++ process, refocuses the outermost skin of the conductor. The result is that the surface of the conductor is more closely packed and regular, and has a continuity which aids conduction through removal of voids left by the drawing process. The main benefits of the Crystal Sound process are that bass notes sound more powerful and refined (you will notice a smaller cable can give the same performance as a much larger cable) and other notes will have greater clarity in their sound.’

    Black Rhodium the UK based cable manufacturer has announced the launch of the LIBRA and CRATOS mains power cables. Both cables have been designed for low ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ by increasing the thickness of the inner insulation to 1.2mm. "The benefit of thicker insulation is that when two electrical conductors carry an electrical current, the magnetic field produced by the…

  • Overture, from Derby based Black Rhodium, is made from 99.99% pure silver wire. The silver wires are insulated in PTFE and there is a layer of air separating the wire from the inner wall of the insulation along its length. The pure silver conductors are covered in a braided screen to protect the inner cores from picking up radio frequency…
