Black Rhodium Samba is quite possibly the best speaker cable Graham Nalty has yet designed and amongst the best speaker cables currently available, featuring many unique ideas and a must audition product if you want to hear exactly what is happening in your system, performers come alive and the " there in the room" feeling prevails. If you would like to read how the Sambas evolved please read Grahams own story about The Black Rhodium Samba Speaker Cables.
Sold as a 3metre stereo pair with longer or shorter lengths available, this is Black Rhodiums newest cable and a must hear cable. On dem in our listening rooms, terminated with rhodium plated locking banana plugs or spades on request.
Here is a review of the samba cables in hifi world magazine.

|Silver plated copper||Plated for superior signal conduction||Clearer mid and high frequencies|
|3 sq mm conductor||Low impedance connection between amplifier and speakers||Clearer and tighter low frequency notes. Better focussed stereo imaging.
Suitable for long cable runs
|Silicone rubber insulation of low dielectric loss 0.0003||Energy from the music signal can be stored in the insulation and released at a later point in time. The released energy is now out of phase with the music signal and adds a time smeared noise that is very audible as distortion of the music. By using insulation with low dielectric loss the distortion due to dielectric absorption is greatly reduced.||The leading edges of the music being performed are much more realistic and the natural decay of the notes are better portrayed|
|2mm thick insulation of each conductor wire||Each conductor that carries current between the amplifier and speakers generates a magnetic field that affects the conduction of the other conductor. This creates a modulation signal that is out of phase with the music and can be heard as a distorted muddling of the sound. By spacing the conductors further apart than is usual, this ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ is much reduced.||With lower ‘Transient Phase Distortion’ the sound is much clearer during complex music passages and bass notes are much better defined within the music.|
|Cables are twisted throughout||This prevents the cable acting as a ‘loop aerial’ which picks up RFI that adds distortion to the sound.||Clearer sound quality|
|Positive and negative conductors are reversed||We specify that each batch of cable manufactured is taken from the same continuous length of wire and that the positive and negative conductors are reversed in direction.||By applying strict quality control to the wire ‘direction’ we achieve a cleared more focussed sound quality with a darker silence between notes in the music.|
|Rhodium plated 4mm connectors||Better signal transmission between the cable and connectors due to lower tarnishing.||Rhodium plating delivers a clearer and fast sound than by using gold plating.|
|Locking mechanism on connectors||Tighter strong connection between the plug and its receptacle.||Sound quality is clearer as a result of the tighter connection|
