The BENCHMARK Series is RSX’s highest value line. While still retaining the hand termination of all other RSX products, the cable portion of every BENCHMARK cable Is specifically designed by Roger Skoff to be custom machine manufactured. This saves hours of hand labor per cable as compared to RSX’s other lines and RSX uses the savings to buy better materials and technologies to provide truly remarkable performance at its very modest price point. The “ER” in all BENCHMARK product names stands for Enhanced Resolution and that’s what it delivers.
“These cables are priced at a fraction of the cost of higher-end audiophile-grade cables making them an excellent value. These cables perform much higher than their price point. For this level of performance, these cables are an outright bargain.”
ER-61 SPEAKER CABLES
These new BENCHMARK™ Speaker Cables are intended to outperform any others at anywhere near their price.
Designed specifically for RSX by Roger Skoff, the founder of XLO, RSX BENCHMARK™ ER-61 Speaker Cables feature premium 11+AWG (American Wire Gauge) solid-core copper conductors (possibly the heftiest in their class, but still easily flexible), arrayed in a Litz-variant geometry, and are constructed with three different low-kappa-factor (low dielectric constant, high “dump rate”) dielectrics for better sound.
To maximize contact area and minimize contact resistance, all BENCHMARK Speaker Cables are supplied with gold plated, non-magnetic, BFA (“Z-style) banana plugs specifically selected for quality of contact, durability, and good sound.
ER-11 LINE LEVEL INTERCONNECTS
ER-11 Line level interconnects feature proprietary design, premium copper conductors, multiple low kappa-factor dielectrics, and bi-metallic shielding. Choose either ultra-low mass gold-plated RCA connectors or gold-plated RSX XLRs at extra cost.
ER-31 PHONO CABLES
ER-41 DIGITAL INTERCONNECTS
ER-41 Digital Interconnects are a significant variant on the BENCHMARK format recognizes the issues of megahertz digital transmission and characteristic impedance matching to provide truly outstanding digital performance. Available ultra-low mass gold-plated RCA connectors only.
ER-20 POWER CORD
“AT $200.00 PER, [now USD $275] THIS IS ONE OF THOSE RARE NO-BRAINERS IN HIGH-END AUDIO. BENCHMARK IS A PRICE-PERFORMANCE KILLER!”
– DR. DAVID W. ROBINSON, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF POSITIVE FEEDBACK ONLINE
The BENCHMARK ER-20 truly is a benchmark product. Laboratory-grade™ copper, low dielectric constant, high dump-rate primary insulation, Balanced-Field™ geometry, 100% coverage shielding, special outer jacketing, and highest quality gold-over-pure-copper connectors are all used in BENCHMARK ER-20 Power Cords to give clearly audible performance far beyond its modest price point. BENCHMARK ER-20 IS THE new standard for affordably priced AC Power Cords.
