Black Cat Cables

Black Cat does not produce many thousands of cables per month, nor do we provide our products to hundreds of dealers and distributors, ... we aren’t able to meet that kind of demand due to the highly specialized nature of our in-house manufacturing processes.

That translates to extremely high-quality audio cables manufactured to high standards using select raw-materials, unique processes, custom tooling and machinery, and the unmistakable touch of the inventor's hand.

Graceline Audio Cables

Graceline Audio Cables is a Passion Project, a way to express certain ideas Chris Sommovigo has about cable construction, music, materials, processes, and the personal touch of an artist's hand. It is about effortlessly flowing beauty, musical radiance, and deeply felt connections with the musical artists who fill our ears, our hearts, and our lives with their own passionate expressions.

All of these cables extend as evolutionary improvements from his original Setsuna designs, which surprised everyone - including him - with how beautifully and effortlessly music can be rendered.

 

 

Graceline Audio Level 3 Interconnects "Mezame" (RCA or XLR)

Level 3 "Mezame" interconnect has a delicate structure combining a triaxial arrangement of open-braided, matrixed wire-tubes separated by layers of insulation, in a termination arrangement that keeps capacitance fundamentally low and velocity reasonably high (due to the air content of our unique AERON insulator).

Level 3 IC's are 1/2 enameled copper x 1/2 bare Pure Silver matrix and are terminated with Oyaide SLSC Silver RCAs -or- Oyaide Focus-1 XLRs

All levels and models present with effortlessness and continuousness while projecting all of the complexities of the soundstage and audible images with dynamic realism from the micro to the macro - and all areas in between.

 

Graceline Audio Level 3 "Mezame" Speaker Cables

Level 3 "Mezame" speaker cables have a delicate structure combining a triaxial arrangement of open-braided, matrixed wire-tubes separated by layers of insulation, in a termination arrangement that keeps inductance fundamentally low and mechanical damping fairly high (due to AERON's natural ability to absorb vibration).

  • 0.5 mm core waxed-cotton cord
  • 1/2 enameled copper x 1/2 bare Pure Silver matrix
  • THREE-Layer AERON full ptfe insulator
  • 1/2 bare copper x 1/2 enameled Pure Silver matrix
  • braided nylon interstitial insulator
  • bare copper matrix
  • braided nylon jacket
  • terminated with XOX rhodium-plated pure copper bananas.

 

 

 

Graceline Audio Level 2 "Setsuna" Interconnects (RCA or XLR)

Level 2 "Setsuna" interconnect has a delicate structure combining a triaxial arrangement of open-braided, matrixed wire-tubes separated by layers of insulation, in a termination arrangement that keeps capacitance fundamentally low and velocity reasonably high (due to the air content of our unique AERON insulator).

Level 2 ICs are 1/2 bare copper x 1/2 enameled copper matrix and terminated with Lovecraft Reference RCAs or Neutrik XLRs.

Graceline Audio Level 2 "Setsuna" Phono

This is a miniaturized version of the Level 2 "Setsuna" interconnect, with twin-runs being deployed under a layer of QuieTex noise-abating shielding and a final jacket of braided, multifilament nylon yarns.

It has a delicate structure of open-braided, matrixed wire-tubes encased in layers of insulation, in a termination arrangement that keeps capacitance fundamentally low and velocity reasonably high (due to the air content of our unique AERON insulator).

Can be terminated with Neutrik XLRs, Lovecraft Reference RCAs, and Furutech DIN connectors. Please consult with your dealer on the best connector arrangement for your circumstance.

 

 

Graceline Audio Level 2 Power Cord

This is dual-core cable, each core is constructed very similarly to the L2 speaker cable, however it has an extra Faraday-Cage style shield layer on each core that is connected to the ground plane. This provides an extra means of protection besides behaving as a shield.


Provided with Oyaide 004 series IEC and USA/NEMA 15 amp plugs.

 

TRON Reference Digital Cables

TRON Signature Digital Cables are among the very best in the world, bar none, regardless of price. ALL TRON digital cables are manufactured with quite heavy-builds of their QuieTex noise reduction materials, which entails time consuming processes of difficult-to-work-with materials.

  • TRON Mk. III SPDIF Cable: highly precise 75Ohm coaxial cable surrounded by two full layers of QuieTex noise reducing materials. BNC:BNC standard (directly soldered RCAs available as a custom order, please inquire)/

  • TRON AES/EBU Cable: a twin-run of precision 55Ohm microcoaxials are run down the center of a double heavy-build of Quietex layers, resulting in an extraordinarily noiseless performance. Oyaide Focus-1 XLRs.

  • TRON USB Cable: a twin-run of precision 45Ohm microcoaxial data lines are run down the center of a Teflon/Air tube. InterPole conductors are braided along the outside of the tube in counter-rotating helices to form the Power and Ground poles. A heavy-build of QuieTex materials ensures black-hole-like noiselessness.

  • TRON KLOK: Pure, 50 Ohm coaxial cable surrounded by a heavy build of QuieTex layers, ensuring noiseless performance for your advanced, external clocking device.

All of Tron cables are made to order. Please allow 1-3 weeks for shipping.

 

Black Cat Mini-TRON Digital Cables

Black Cat Mini-TRON Digital Cables are here. Chris made a change in the Digit-75 that brings it one step closer to TRON, such that it is truly proper to call it "Mini-TRON"

It is available as "Universal" with adapters provided as standard as shown in the image to the right. Direct RCA termination is available for a custom fee

XOX Banana to Spade Adapters

The XOX Banana to Spade adapters are precision-machined pure copper, high-polished and then plated in Rhodium. The banana securely fits and the spade opening perfectly suits nearly every binding post on the market.

These are the absolute best banana to spades adapters we have ever used.... as good as it gets and only $225 per set of four.
