made-to-order speaker for any reason,
it is unlikely that we could sell it to

OPUS loudspeaker cable with gold plated banana plugs (3m or 5m lengths)
The design of OPUS is based very closely on the very popular award winning HARMONY interconnect cable, with some slight changes to make it even better value for money Low Transient Phase Distortion through Innovative Design.
OPUS gives a very clear diction of a singer’s voice and separates musical instruments superbly through a dramatic reduction of ‘Transient Phase Distortion’. ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ is reduced by using thicker insulation (0.6mm wall thickness) than is usual in interconnect cables, increasing the distance between conductors. The reason behind this change to thicker insulation of the conductors is that when two electrical conductors carry an electrical current, the magnetic field produced by the current in one conductor affects the resistance of the other conductor. This is known as the ‘Proximity Effect’. By positioning the conductors of OPUS 1.2mm from each other, the magnetic field (which reduces inversely proportionally to the distance) on the other cable is lowered and the ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ is less audible. This effect can easily be observed when listening to complex musical signals such as massed choirs and large orchestras. Silicone Rubber insulation for Sharper Leading Edges and Natural Decays
OPUS uses two tin 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 separates individual instruments and voices to give you a much more lifelike presentation of the music.

*Outer sheath: Silicone rubber
*Outer diameter: 6.25mm
*Capacitance: 70pF 1m terminated
The cores inside OPUS are twisted together to reduce their susceptibility to picking up high frequency noise signals that distort your music and reduce your listening pleasure. The two OPUS cables in a stereo pair are also twisted together. Thus preventing the cable acting as a “loop aerial” for airborne radio frequency interference which can cause audible distortion to the sound quality.
Gold plated connectors ensure a long reliable use due to the lack of tarnishing. The banana plugs used on Opus are soldered to ensure long term reliability of contact.
