All of our cables are made to order by Chris Sommovigo, personally. Please allow 1-3 weeks for shipping.
This is a multilayered cable that begins with a 6mm core of pure cotton rope sourced from Japan. This is central to the cable as a means of creating a core that is mechanically damped. Around the core is a braid of 32 bare, pure copper strands at 30 AWG each (summing to 15AWG), then an interstitial layer of braided multifilament nylon, a secondary layer of 32 braided copper wires - same as the interior layer of wire - and finally an overall braided jacket of nylon.
This is a fairly ideal geometry expressed in excellent materials that runs circles around the usual suspects!
Terminated with XOX direct-gold-plated pure copper bananas.
XOX Spade-adapters optional.

• "It all works. I love these and what they do with our music. I can't recommend these highly enough. A solid audition to those who are looking for the best, but cannot afford the multi-thousand-dollar options. A true reference cable for under $5.k" - Dave Clark, Positive Feedback
• "The Black Cat Cables 3202 and 3232 are first-class connectors that you should consider for fine tuning between high-quality components - especially when you need resolution, dynamics, precision, and control.
The speaker cable Black Cat 3232 is a real price-performance tip. If clarity and resolution are required, this connector is far ahead of the pack. I would rate the NF cable Black Cat 3202 even a class higher. With their striking openness, detail, unrestrained dynamics and precise control, the optically inconspicuous connectors also play in the top league of low-frequency cables. Again, the price seems more than fair considering the bidding." ~ MARTIN MERTENS, Fairuadio.de
"So, thinking about Chris Sommovigo's cables, think about them in the context of expensive, elaborate systems. That's where they belong. As I see it the 3202 and 3232 truly deserve out RED Fingerprint." ~ Wojciek Pacula, High Fidelity
"I agree with the dealers and distributors who suggested to Black Cat owner and chief engineer Chris Sommovigo that he should somehow find a way to manufacture his products to look more like "giant anaconda-like cables" than the more svelte appearance of his current line of cables so he could charge more for them. I have enough experience with using different cables in my system to conclude that, no, the majority of the more expensive cables that are marketed today are not over-priced, but... the Black Cat cables are certainly underpriced. In fact, I think that Black Cat is selling themselves short. The only conclusion I can come to is that the only reason Black Cat cannot sell their cables for more is because of their appearance.
In the meantime, audiophiles should take advantage of this situation, and seriously consider sacrificing the ability to dazzle their audiophile friends with cables that are as thick as a garden hose with flashy external appendages, and instead suffer the humiliation of having to show them their thinner, more refined looking Black Cat cables. But they can say that the Black Cat cables have the approval of Enjoy the Music.com Senior Editor Tom Lyle and they will have the experience of hearing with the many sonic benefits these Black Cat interconnect, speaker, and digital cables will impart to their systems. Recommended to all." ~ Tom Lyle, Enjoy The Music
