Black Knight

Black Knight

Analogue Interconnect RCA 



The Black Knight is our second interconnect to use Gekko GAC1 connectors.

 

It is a directional, unshielded interconnect cable made of two twisted solid-core OFHC  AWG24 conductors, made in Britain. Each conductor is insulated by thick cotton braid.


The cotton insulation is the first in its dielectric properties with an exception to air: the Dielectric Constant of Air is 1.0, cotton is 1.3, and Teflon is 2.0. Consequently, the use of cotton insulation, rather than Teflon, further reduces capacitance and inductance.


Cotton dielectric also plays an important role as a cushion in reducing unnecessary vibrations to secure real sound. It creates a natural and warm sound that perfectly harmonises with the Black Knight OFHC copper conductors. By eliminating the unnecessary vibrations, while still securing the original signal, natural cotton dielectric creates vivid and lively music.

 

The two conductors are twisted together and the cable is then covered with two more layers of braid providing an additional mechanical protection to the conductors.

 

The interconnect is terminated with our uniquely designed Gekko GAC1 (patent pending) RCA connectors, which allows the cable wires to make direct contact to the equipment’s RCA sockets.

 

The sound of the Gekko BLACK KNIGHT is open, fast and dynamic. It is able to transfer subtle details and ambient information with natural warmth.

Analogue Interconnect XLR 



As the RCA version, it is a directional, unshielded interconnect cable made of three twisted solid-core OFHC  AWG24 conductors, made in Britain. Each conductor is insulated by thick cotton braid.


The three conductors are twisted together and the cable is then covered with two more layers of braid providing an additional mechanical protection to the conductors.

 

The sound of the Gekko BLACK KNIGHT is open, fast and dynamic. It is able to transfer subtle details and ambient information with natural warmth.

 

 

•Conductors: 3x 0.5mm high purity (99.99%) annealed OFHC copper

•Primary dielectric layer: Cotton

•Secondary dielectric layer: Polypropylene

•Lay: Orbital twist, 40mm lay length

•Capacitance: (min) 50pF/m

•Inductance: 2.0uH/m (inc connectors)

•Resistance: 0.05ohm/m

•Overall diameter: 9.0mm

Speaker Cable 



Using eight solid-core OFHC  AWG24 conductors, made in Britain.


The conductors are twisted together and the cable is then covered with two more layers of polypropylene braid providing an additional mechanical protection to the conductors.

 

The sound of the Gekko BLACK KNIGHT is open, fast and dynamic. It is able to transfer subtle details and ambient information with natural warmth.

 

 

•Conductors: 8x 0.5mm high purity (99.99%) annealed OFHC copper

•Primary dielectric layer: Polypropylene

•Secondary dielectric layer: Polypropylene

•Capacitance: (min) 80pF/m

•Inductance: 0.90uH/m

•Resistance: 0.008ohm/m

•Overall with: 14.0mm

Mains Cable



Black Knight mains cable was created by a request of our German friends Michael (IBEX Audio) and Frank. 


The conductors are silver plated OFC copper. Once twisted together the conductord are covered with two more layers of polypropylene braid providing an additional mechanical protection to the conductors and then covered in PVC. The final finish is black polypropylene with a single silver line.

 

The sound of the Gekko BLACK KNIGHT is open, fast and dynamic.

 

•Conductors: 3x 2.5mm2 annealed silver plated OFC

•Primary dielectric layer: PVC

•Secondary dielectric layer: Polypropylene

•Overall with: 14.0mm
