The Chord Company - not associated with Chord Electronics - has been providing high-end audio cables distributed worldwide in 65 countries since 1985. Because all Chord Company cables undergo numerous evaluations for accurate musical timbre and realism across the broadest range of components possible, they audition very well compared with many other cable designs.
The Chord Company believes cables have a greater impact on system performance than generally appreciated, even amongst audiophile that embrace the importance of cables, and the company continues to make improvements with vigorous enthusiasm. Chord Company cables use specialized plugs and terminations, high quality conducting and insulating materials, and sophisticated shielding to combat the rapidly increasing environmental electrical pollution from personal computers and the plethora of electronic devices found in the home.
A radically new concept in cable design has been introduced with the latest reference level models. Although audio signals are most often thought of in terms of a
voltage waveform, current flow is always involved. Current always flows in a loop and returns to its source favoring the path of least impedance; and therefore
influenced by inductance and capacitance.
The Chord Company has always paid particular attention to both the signal and return paths. Chord Company's proprietary "Tuned ARAY" and "Super ARAY" technology is a refinement on the relationship between signal and return paths consisting of an additional conductor of specific length attached to one end of the cable and this gives a dramatic improvement to signal transfer resulting in better tonality and timing.
"Tuned ARAY" technology is incorporated into Signature, Indigo and Sarum analog interconnects and digtal cables.
When combined with carefully controlled manufacturing and assembly, the level of design complexity, and validating listening prototyping, it's not surprising that Chord Company cables offer class leading sonic characteristics. With better dynamics, natural tonality and precise timing, Chord Company cables will better reveal the emotional energy in your system that is so vitally important to musical engagement.
The Chord Company will service, repair or modify any Chord Company cable.
All cables are all hand-built in the UK and carry a 10 year warranty.
