MAGNUS SPEAKER MKII
The amplifier/Loudspeakers combination is perhaps the most important component of a Hi-Fi system because these devices shape the sound as our ears know it and enjoy it. An inadequate Speaker cable defeats all the good things your equipment has to say and causes the system's performance to lapse at its most crucial point. That's why Magnus Speaker is the first step towards its maximum expression.
Magnus Speaker has been a popular product since its debut because of its great value for money, so we thought we'd further improve it by inserting an Aluminium/Mylar shield before the outer sheath. This further upgrade, which is recognisable for products with the Mark II designation, does not result in a revolutionary or new product, but does improve its already excellent performance.
The shielding applied significantly improves the protection from EMI/RFI interference that can penetrate the cable Speaker during the delicate journey from the amplifier to the loudspeakers. This feature, combined with the Noise Reduction system, brings the performance of Magnus Speaker closer to its big brothers Dedalus and Invictus.
- PROJECT: The cable Magnus Speaker MKII allows you to transmit the amplified signal to your speakers in a much better way than normal speaker cables and consequently to enjoy the full potential that your system can give you. Magnus Speaker represents the first step towards perfect signal transmission. Its technological solutions derive from the Dedalus series and guarantee an exclusive and durable support for your equipment.
- MARC CONDUCTOR +70%: Thanks to the 4.3 mm2 copper 7N MARC (Multicore Annealed Ricable Conductor) conductors with strands 0.1 mm smoother and more compact surface, the signal transmission Speaker is 70% better than OFC Copper and this results in superior transparency, a more balanced and characterized soundstage and precise control.
- RNR TECHNOLOGY (RICABLE NOISE REDUCTION): Developed on the top series, the Germanium semiconductor that overlaps the conductors as a whole makes it possible to reduce background noise and hiss generated by the audio media. With this system, the sound is more detailed and brighter, while maintaining a natural and balanced timbre.
- NEW CONCEPTION: Magnus Speaker MKII is made with geometry that derives from the superior series and takes up its philosophy of audio signal transmission, to guarantee performance that is decidedly superior to standard cables.
- COPPER/TELLURIUM CONNECTORS 25% compared to BRASS: BFA Banana connectors made of Copper-Tellurium Monoblock which improves the electrical characteristics by more than 25% compared to Brass bananas. 24K Gold plated with specific electrolysis technique.
- EASY INSTALLATION: The quality of the raw materials used, despite the generous size of the cable, allow for enviable flexibility that ensures easy installation in any installation.
Ricable Speaker is a handmade product in Italy and in addition to guaranteeing a much higher level of care than industrial cables, it can be customised to suit your needs, for example:
- spades instead of bananas (on one or both sides)
- Making tips directly from the conductor for old spring connections
- Customisable length according to requirements
- A different colour coating can be requested for aesthetic reasons
This Hi-Fi cable is made by hand, in an artisanal way, so we can also produce it in custom lengths, exactly as you would like it for your system.
We can also change the external colour of the cable, if your home equipment has special requirements. Please send us your enquiry and we will get back to you shortly.

I have to admit that I was hesitant at first [...], but then as I studied a little bit of technical literature (I am still an electrical engineer) and studied the theory and associated mathematics, I realized the importance of it. Particularly of having balanced components by always trying to improve the weakest element in the chain.
Despite the much lower price than the larger series, the construction is still accurate, the flexibility of the cables is good and the quality of the terminations is more than adequate for the price, with a seal that ensures a solid and constant grip over time.
The cable Magnus MKII has excellently satisfied all my most rosy expectations. It's really a revelation and then, if I have to say it all, I'm very happy and proud to have in Italy an electronics factory on a par with foreigners and even better.

Given my electronics and especially the completely Naim amplification, I already had a very good cable Speaker to connect the amplifier to the speakers, the old Naca 5 also by Naim. I decided to buy a new cable because I was looking for a different or perhaps more up-to-date sound. The Magnus as far as I'm concerned offers a splendid sound that delivers impeccable detail, as well as giving an overall excellent performance.
Compared to the old cable it offers much more. They are two different ways of constructing and conceiving this component (even cables can be defined as components). If I really have to find a shortcoming in Magnus I can tell you that it makes the sound more pleasant, detailed and "warm", perhaps lacking in brilliance in the mid-high frequencies, this is my impression anyway.
Hello Marino, thank you for your precious testimony. For the mid-high frequencies, give it a fortnight and then try to compare it again with the old cable, you'll see that it will give you back the best sound.

A really nice cable without spending a lot of money. I switched to a Roksan K3 amplifier about 10 months ago and I have to say that the differences with this new cable can be heard from the first use, let's see what happens after the break-in period. The cable connects the Roksan to Focal Chorus 826W 30th Anniversary Edition loudspeakers and now it really seems that the treble is well defined and the bass is properly heard and full bodied.
With Jazz music it delivers admirable detail and the wide soundstage given by this amp and cable allows the instruments plenty of room to breathe with excellent detail retrieval. Vocals are also full of texture.
Well done guys, keep up the good work, keep up the good work.... in spite of the crazy amounts of money you have to pay for other top brands.
Hello Giuseppe, thank you very much for your feedback! See you soon

Hi, I bought these fantastic cables to replace my audioquest ones.
I still can't believe my ears, the sound of my system has changed face, more transparency, detail, separation of the instruments, very dry and decisive bass maybe even too much. I would buy them another 1000 times!
Thank you Antonio, you can't imagine how much your words give us satisfaction... we are really happy for you (and for your system)!

It's amazing how the Magnus speakers immediately improved things by replacing them with my reference cables. Assuming that my Atoll/Kef/sony system already enjoyed excellent neutrality, I can simply describe my listening impressions as "improved on all frequencies" in a decisive and substantial way. The increase and control in the low range, midrange and treble cleansed of the slightest haloes created at high volumes and the overall depth of the sound, have had decisive effects on the contrast between the instrumental voices, the placement of each individual instrument clearly improving the entire soundstage without any minimum coloration of the neutral timbre already existing. I am a musician and choosing the "right" cable has always improved the sound and attack of my guitar. Having said that, I highly recommend magnus speakers to the most demanding audiophile, to the neophyte and above all to cable sceptics who don't know what they're missing. A sincere compliment to all the staff at Ricable for their passion and dedication in the creation of high-end cables and to their immense availability.
Good morning Febo, we are very happy that Magnus Speakers finally met your expectations. Thank you for your testimony. See you soon, best regards!

I purchased the Magnus Speaker in the "Used Guaranteed" section, so it is the MKI version, by the way in like-new condition. The cable being used was already broken in, but I still waited a few days before judging it by testing it with various CDs and LPs, from Nine Inch Nails to Paolo Conte, and I must say that it met my expectations; I was looking for a cable that was as neutral as possible and I found it. If it had changed even slightly the timbre of my Accuphase "A20V"/Pylon Audio "Sapphire 31" combo I would have returned it, but fortunately it did not. The improvements made by Magnus concern, among others, mainly the mmage, which is more in focus, and the dynamics and transparency, which have benefited somewhat. The construction of the cable is impeccable and aesthetically it is very beautiful, I would even say a bit austere compared to the models Dedalus and Invictus, so it can be placed in your listening room without giving too much away and safeguarding the WAF factor.
As a side note to these brief remarks of mine about the Maguns Speaker, I wanted to praise the customer service Ricable for its helpfulness and responsiveness in answering; a sign that those who work there do so with dedication, also showing respect for their potential or existing customers. And in an industry like this where we high-fidelity enthusiasts are seen as fixers, mouth-breathers who are just waiting to have the money taken out of their wallets, I'd say that's no small thing.
P.S. The inclusion of a new item in our system can at first have a disorienting effect, so before judging it, even if it has already burned in, listen to it for a few days.
