Graceline Level 2 "Setsuna" speaker cables by Black Cat Cables. They have a delicate structure combining a triaxial arrangement of open-braided, matrixed wire tubes. These tubes are separated by insulation layers in a termination arrangement that keeps inductance fundamentally low and mechanical damping fairly high.
The Graceline L2 interconnect and speaker cable has a core of 3mm textile cord. It has a matrix of half bare copper and half enameled copper, an AERON insulator made of nylon and PTFE, a bare copper matrix, and a braided nylon jacket. Each speaker cable is terminated with XOX rhodium-plated pure copper bananas. Also, each interconnect is terminated with Chris’ own Lovecraft Reference RCA designs or Neutrik XLRs.
All these materials seem quite nice on paper but don't mean much to me when listed. When I read Chris Sommovigo 's personal history and the methods he used to reach one of the best-sounding cables in their class, he developed these cables as a high-end audio equipment designer, inventor, and artisan. He has come up with a product that is at the service of the music.
