RE: Black Rhodium Cables From The U.K.

Hi Duster:

Thanks for your reply.

What prompted me to give these cables a listen was. story my friend told me about meeting the owner, Graham Nalty, at a hifi shop and was very impressed with him. He told a story of coming second in a cable shoot out with one of the British magazines. He took a look at the winning cable and determined the Eichmann Bullet Plug was a superior connector to what he was using, and had Eichmann make a custom plug for him to his proprietary specifications. This showed a lack of ego and the willingness to see where competitors have superior design.

They also publish a an "11 Step" cable buying guide which I found impressive in that they do not promote any proprietary designs and urge audiophiles to educate themselves about the basics of what goes into constructing of an audio cable, manufacturing techniques, and electrical properties.

Lastly, they urge folks not to rely just on recommendations and ultimately make the decision themselves, through listening, and not also not to put to much stock in reviews. They tell a story of how one of their cables wins cable of the year in one publications but was called junk in another.
