The Chord Company has been designing and producing cables for hi-fi and home cinema systems since 1985, in our facility set deep in the heart of Wiltshire, UK. We know just how important cables are and how the correct interconnect, HDMI and speaker cable can transform the experience and pleasure of listening to or watching your favourite piece of music or film. Cables are not and never have been an accessory. They are a vital part of your system, and choosing the right cable is more important now than it ever has been. The typical domestic home has become a hostile place for a signal as complex as a piece of music to travel from one component to another. Chord cables are designed to minimise the effects of this electrical interference. You might not know it’s there, but you’ll definitely know when it isn’t! Over twenty-seven years of research, experimentation and close cooperation with some of the best equipment manufacturers means that right now, the cables and interconnects that The Chord Company produces are some of the very best available. Cutting edge design and obsessive attention to build quality makes for cables that will reveal the true performance of any hi-fi or home cinema system.
The Chord Epic series features new Tuned ARAY conductor geometry, which carries a musical signal with a high degree of coherence and detail. It features tri-conductor configuration, silver-plated conductors with PTFE insulation. An internal PVC jacket reduces mechanical noise and correctly spaces high frequency effective dual layer combination shield.
Developing Tuned ARAY for our flagship Sarum cable range was a real voyage of (particularly when it came to music we thought we knew well) discovery. What’s been really good though is the way we’ve been able to apply the same technology to our Indigo and Signature interconnects and achieve the same genuinely coherent musical performance that is unique to Tuned ARAY technology.
One of the really pronounced things about the performance of Tuned ARAY cables is their remarkable consistency in terms of their performance characteristics. Tuned ARAY cables appear to dramatically reduce noise levels within the systems they are used in. The result of this is music with extraordinary levels of detail, dynamics and coherence. This is true of Tuned ARAY analogue cables, digital cables, USB cables and streaming/Ethernet cables.
