The Chord Chorus Reference is a new cable design heavily influenced by the ARAY technology developed for our flagship Sarum Tuned ARAY cables. The conductors are built from silver-plated oxygen free copper and insulated with PTFE insulation. The tri-conductor configuration is arranged in a repeating spiral and over-extruded with a soft PVC to provide mechanical damping. The shield is a high frequency effective 95% coverage woven braid, in combination with a heavy gauge foil, over-wrapped to provide maximum protection across a wide frequency range. The shields are protected with PVC to provide further mechanical damping.
The Chorus Reference is fitted with Chord’s custom VEE 3 RCA plugs. The new design of the ABS outer shell and the unique silver-plating process applied to the contact areas improves signal transfer across a wide frequency range. The signal return surround provides a secure high pressure contact with all types of RCA sockets. The centre pin is insulated with PTFE and the design of the plug and ABS outer shell provides good strain relief without compressing the cable and compromising performance.
