If you decide to cancel your
made-to-order speaker for any reason,
it is unlikely that we could sell it to
another customer at full selling price.
We will therefore charge a
cancellation fee of 20%
of the order price.

Black Rhodium TEMPEST DCT++CS Cable with Terminated Ends
TEMPEST DCT++CS loudspeaker cable with treated GN Legacy GN-1 Rhodium banana plugs (3m or 5m lengths)
The design features of TEMPEST DCT++CS are based on the highly successful TWIST, TWIRL and SAMBA speaker cables which have captured several 5 Star awards, but includes many additional design features chosen specifically to give much clearer sound quality and listening enjoyment.
The special design features of TEMPEST DCT++CS 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 DCT++CS is treated with our advanced DCT++cryogenic processing treatment. This involves temperature processing above and below room temperature. 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, TEMPEST DCT++CS is also treated with the Crystal Sound Process. The 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.
* Outer diameter of cores 8mm
* 19 x 0.45mm diameter silver plated copper cores
* Silicone rubber insulation thickness: 2.4mm
* Capacitance for 3m length: 100pF
TEMPEST DCT++CS is continuously twisted along it's length to prevent the cable acting as a loop aerial. A cable that is untwisted has a larger surface area, therefore has a greater ability to attract RFI/EMI signals generated from Radio, Wifi, Mobile Phones and even central heating systems. Additional RFI/EMI filtering is also applied directly to the conductor wire. This prevents high frequency noise modulating the signal at either end of the cable. Both of the treatments above are designed to further reduce the amount of audible distortion in the cable, allowing cleaner, clearer sounds to be generated from your equipment. TEMPEST DCT++CS is terminated with the revolutionary ‘Straight Line Contact’ Rhodium Plated Banana Plugs designed by Graham Nalty. These plugs are exclusively treated with the DCT++ CS treatment to further deliver the benefits discussed earlier. DCT++ and Crystal Sound Treated Connectors CANNOT be purchased in any retail store, and are exclusively available on Black Rhodium terminated cables. Rhodium plating is applied to the plugs to ensure a cleaner and less corroded contact is maintained between the plug and socket and its effect a much livelier and more exciting sound from the music. Additional security of the connection between the cable and plug is provided by a set screw that clamps the outer insulation of the wire.
