British cable manufacturer, Black Rhodium, Polka Classic has been developed from the Foxtrot / Quickstep / Waltz series of cables, just as the original Polka, but with a different approach. Whereas the original Polka had a much larger cable area, Black Rhodium say that the Polka Classic “has been designed especially for classical music with a lesser influence on conductor size and greater emphasis on conductor and material quality”.
