Black Cat Cable’s standard termination for loudspeaker cables will be the new banana design by Chris Sommovigo for the sub-brand, XOX.

The new XOX Bananas are pure copper, rhodium-plated, have a spring-forced contact, are hollow and have a coarse-thread crush-contact with the wire.

Black Cat Cable owner Chris Sommovigo told us, “It has taken awhile for these to come out of production, but I’m thrilled that I’ve finally got them. Compared to the old XOX banana, these retain the copper base metal, but now offer superior contact with the binding post for outstanding signal transfer.”

Mr. Sommovigo has chosen pure copper because he feels that no alloy can best it for conductivity, not even Tellurium Copper. “Only pure, unalloyed silver is better for conductivity,” shares Mr. Sommovigo, “… and only by 6%. This banana operates at 100% IACS.”

The new XOX Banana is available on all of Black Cat and Graceline loudspeaker cables, from Coppertone upwards.
