STREAM is a new audio mains power cable designed to achieve high sound quality by using the latest Black Rhodium high end cable technology.
STREAM is optimised for the best sound quality by its length. During the design period, Black Rhodium tested one of its most popular power cables in several different lengths. Listening tests showed consistently that the best sound quality was obtain from cables cut to a length of 1.65m (wire length 1.68m after untwisting). This aligns very closely with the quarter wavelength of the 50 Hz mains frequency of 1.7m.

Further tests showed that cables in multiples of 1.7m sounded superior to lengths than those of slightly above or below. However the longer cables in multiples of 1.7m did not match the sound quality of 1.65m.
STREAM is hand built at the Black Rhodium factory in Derby to advanced design techniques developed by Black Rhodium for use in its most expensive products.

The wires in STREAM are insulated in silicone rubber 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.
STREAM gets its sound through a dramatic reduction of ‘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. A further increase in the distance between conductors is achieved by use of the attractive cable braid and this further reduces ‘Proximity Effect’ distortion.
By very substantially reducing this form of distortion, the music becomes clearer and more dynamic, with greater ambience and experience of the music’s emotional qualities.
Construction of STREAM includes the use of two separate and complementary materials
that effectively damp Mechanical Vibrations within the cable.
STREAM Mains Power cable is protected from the distortion caused by RFI interference by
a very tightly braided metal screen. Complementary RFI suppression technology located
within the connectors reduces the distortion caused by high frequency noise within the
power circuits.
The result is less audible distortion allowing cleaner, clearer sounds to be enjoyed from
your equipment.
STREAM power cables are terminated with high quality mains connectors that have been
regularly used in Black Rhodium power cables.
STREAM power cables will be available at these Retail Prices:
