Cable ranges update May 2016
C-series
The Chord Company cable ranges begin with the C-series and this
includes interconnects, power cables and speaker cables. Built to be
discreet whilst maintaining our usual high performance.
The C-line analogue and C-digital interconnects use our ARAY
conductor configuration.
The Chord C-view HDMI cable is the most discreet and flexible high
speed HDMI cable that we’ve ever developed.
Chord C-screen speaker cable is a shielded speaker cable that shares the
same performance characteristics of our other shielded speaker cables.
It’s our most discreet shielded speaker cable.
The Chord C-power is a shielded power cable. It may look like any
other black power cable with moulded plugs until it’s plugged in.
The Chord C-stream and C-USB have very effective shielding and are
available in a range of lengths. Don’t think that all digital cables are the
same. They’re not. Your choice of streaming or USB cable will influence
the final performance of your system.
Clearway
The award winning Chord Clearway speaker cable was released in the
summer of 2015 – our 30th Anniversary. Chord Clearway speaker cable
was What Hi-fi?’s Product of the Year in 2015.
Clearway speaker cable uses oxygen-free copper conductors and FEP – a
close relative of PTFE and one of the best available dielectric materials.
Clearway is shielded with dual layers of high-density foil, making it
extremely neutral, with low cable colouration. It is also flexible enough for
easy installation
Clearway Digital uses Chord Tuned ARAY technology . This reduces
unwanted reflections within digital cables. Anyone with the need for a
digital coaxial cable really needs to try this.
Shawline
The Chord Shawline analogue and digital interconnects use Tuned Aray
technology and are built by hand. The conductors are silver-plated and
insulated with PTFE, before being surrounded with a vibration damping PVC
coating - designed to correctly space the conductors in relation to the highdensity foil and braid shielding.
Shawline shielded speaker is the latest addition to this very competitively priced
product range and uses a high density braid and foil combination as part of its
design.
Chord Shawline has a level of musical involvement and dynamic performance
that can only be achieved by the use of high frequency effective shielding. It
shows that genuinely high performance speaker cables don’t have to cost a
fortune.
Epic
The new Chord Epic range of cables sits right in the middle of our family of
cable range. Built to match our current Chord Epic Twin and Chord Epic
Reference Speaker cables.
The Epic Twin speaker cable design is based on our findings about the benefit
that high frequency effective shielding brings to a cable.
Chord Epic Reference speaker cable is hand built and produced in our
purpose-built facility in Wiltshire. The Epic Reference uses separate shields
for each conductor set. It uses a similar configuration to those of Signature,
Sarum and ChordMusic speaker cables, together with the silver-plated, copper
conductors. This cable works really well with floor standing and difficult to
drive speakers. The conductors help to control and define individual notes,
they give a great sense of dynamics and the shields bring a level of refinement
and delicacy that allows you to see further into and experience more of the
landscape that your music creates.
Chord Epic analogue interconnects use Tuned ARAY conductor technology.
The key differences that set it apart from our Shawline Tuned ARAY
interconnect are critically spaced, very high-density braid and heavy-gauge foil
combination shield. The conductors are silver-plated but we have made some
changes which improve the ability of the cable to carry dynamic information
- particularly micro-dynamics, which are so key to the rhythm and drive of
music.
The Chord Epic Digital uses Tuned ARAY technology again – this time
optimised for carrying a digital signal. The design uses a coaxial configuration
conductor and a Tuned ARAY conductor assembly. The conductors are silverplated, insulated with PTFE and capable of carrying very high-speed signals.
Shielding is a high density braid and foil combination and the Epic Digital can be
fitted with either RCA or BNC plugs.
Epic Streaming Cable. Hand built, so you can have any length you require.
Silver-plated conductors designed to carry extremely high frequency signals.
Each of the four conductor pairs use a unique hard skin dielectric material,
and again the way we make the shielding is designed to minimise interference.
The Epic streaming cable uses an adaptation of the Tuned ARAY technology;
each conductor is soldered rather than clamped, the plug is a high speed, high
performance RJ45 with extremely precise dimensions.
