A thick gauge speaker cable has been a favorite for many. Capable to be used on amplifiers power rated up to 2750 watts, Gotham 2 x 4.0mm² speaker cable has an effective 12 AWG in gauge size. And yet despite its thickness, it is incredibly flexible. Such cables will be useful for various placements where cable management can be kept neat and tidy.
A simple and straightforward construction, there will be no twisted braid or combination braid. Under each hood of the 12 AWG conductor are 224 strands of bare and high purity OFC. Terminated with authentic CMC banana plugs, the cables are effective and clean, which is similarly transmitted to the sound it carries. With apparent forward midrange, vocals will sound exceptionally crisp with weight. Timbre has air of realism to it, giving the highs adequate sparkles without being harsh. Give it at least 80 hours of burn-in, the sound will gradually open up, providing a balance tonality and smoothness.
Cables terminated and made from QA with Gotham are always strived to be professional, effective, aesthetically pleasing and of quality. We always chose the best components for the most value, and authenticity is of utmost consideration. CMC plugs have seen various counterfeits all over the web that even CMC Audio released on their website on how to spot the fakes. Rest assured the banana plugs used in our speaker cable termination are from a true and authentic source. Our plugs matched entirely what CMC Audio had posted with regards to authenticity identification. But even so, handling the actual speaker cables with the plugs, you will definitely feel the weight and class of authentic CMC gold-plated banana plugs.
Finishing the cable is a sleek and matte black divider protecting the breakaway of the cable insulation. As much as possible, we reject the use of heat shrinks or insulation tape – a proper machined and sleek divider provides the best possible looking and protection to the cable. There is no direction marked to speaker cables when both ends are made exactly the same – do not believe the hype and myth.
