Black Rhodium TWIST VS-4 Loudspeaker Cable
The New TWIST VS-4 makes the experience of listening to music an even greater pleasure thanks to its natural open sound on vocals and excellent timing on piano notes. “The New Twist VS-4 Is based on the same design philosophy as multiple award winner Samba VS-1, but at much lower price extending the benefits of Vibration Stabiliser technology the Samba VS-1 to a much wider audience.
Vibration Stabiliser to Reduce Distortion
TWIST VS-4 has been designed to apply the musical benefits of the GN LEGACY VS-4 Vibration Stabiliser to the highly successful TWIST loudspeaker cable. The vibration stabiliser has been specially designed to reduce audible cable distortion in cables by limiting the effects of vibrations travelling through the conductor wires which can cause audible distortion to your music.
Low Transient Phase Distortion through Innovative Design.
TWIST VS-4 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 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. The benefit in listening is a clearer and more open sound quality.
Low Loss Silicone Rubber insulation for Faster, Sharper Leading Edges and more Natural Decays in Music.
TWIST VS-4 delivers not only very fast and sharp leading edges to your music but also more natural lingering decays as the notes die down.
TWIST VS-4 uses silicone rubber insulation because its low dielectric loss ensures extremely low distortion due to dielectric absorption effects. Dielectric Absorption occurs when the electric audio signal in the cable is absorbed in the insulation and released at a later interval of time to create highly audible time-smearing distortion.
In addition the soft absorbent nature of silicone rubber absorbs mechanical vibration effects in the cable cores and reduces the audible distortion caused by mechanical energy in the conductor wires.
Anti RFI / EMI Technology to Further Reduce Distortion.
TWIST VS-4 is continuously twisted along their 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.
Advanced Manufacturing Techniques to Reduce Noise and Distortion.
TWIST VS-4 uses two 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 enhances reproduction of the musical edges and natural decays in music.
Silicone rubber insulation is used 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.
High Quality Gold Plated Z plugs
TWIST VS-4 uses gold plated Z plugs to deliver the very best sound quality at a very competitive price. Our listening tests have demonstrated that the Z plug delivers a very high quality sound. Cables terminated with rhodium plated Z plugs are also available.
To prevent the cable losing its twist during handling, Black Rhodium provides a printed heat shrink to bind the two conductors six inches from the end. The heat shrink is large enough to cover the two cores, but small enough to hold them without shrinking the heat shrink.
