ChordMusic Cable Range

The Chord Company

ChordMusic is the new revloutionary reference cable from esteemed UK manufacturer The Chord Company. Using materials new to the hi-fi world, Chord have been able to produce a cable that is incredibly transparent and musical and keeps phase to stunning accuracy.

ChordMusic uses a unique new insulation material called Taylon®. Up until this point, Chord used what was considered to be the best insulation material they had found: PTFE, in all its forms: gas foamed, air-spaced and solid. Taylon® behaves very differently to PTFE and one of its critical differences is that it is phase stable at typical room temperatures.

he construction of Tuned and Super ARAY cables use multiple shielded conductors and that means the only option is hand assembly. Precision cutting and stripping machines are used, but the actual termination and conductor configuration can only be done by hand.

ChordMusic uses techniques developed for the Sarum Super ARAY, but has gone a step further and applied a constrained layer of mechanical damping to the conductor grouping. It’s a time consuming process but with a cable as transparent and neutral as ChordMusic, the improvements are easy to hear.

It brings greater focus and solidity across the frequency range which is particularly noticeable in the higher frequencies. Cymbals sound more natural than we’ve heard before, with a real sense of the complex timbre they produce and how that changes – depending on the way the cymbal is hit. Chord Company added an external metallic braid to further improve mechanical damping and HF noise isolation before the final braided cover is fitted. The reason for all of this is transparency and neutrality.

The Taylon®, combined with Super ARAY technology, means Chord Co. are breaking new ground and removing what sounds like the last layer of cloud obscuring the musical landscape. Every one of those additions has made the view still clearer.
