Chord Epic XLR
There are growing numbers of mid-price components appearing with XLR outputs and inputs and many of these players are using the latest hi-resolution chip-sets making the Chord Epic XLR a key product.
The level of detail these players reveal is astonishing, compared to just a few years ago and the Epic Analogue will let your hear this. Its a good bet that as the cost of equipment rises, XLR outputs will become more relevant. Our advice is if you have RCA and XLR options available, you should try both.
You may well find that the RCA outputs are the more musically involving choice. Pick a piece of music that’s special to you and listen. You’ll find it easy to hear whether it’s the XLR or the RCA connections that move you more.
Tuned ARAY cables share common characteristics – neutrality and an ability to carry high levels of detail without losing musical coherence. With a cable like Epic, players previously dismissed as overtly analytical can sound a lot more musically involving and players that sound instinctively musical turn out to carry a lot more detail.
