An original Chord Company design, built specially for us. We wanted a cable at an affordable price that offered a good taste of what we want our analogue cables to do.
The ARAY conductor geometry was developed from the Tuned ARAY conductor configuration first used on our then flagship Chord Sarum cable range. The over-moulded RCA plug uses the same signal enhancing direct gold-plating process that we use on our Chord VEE3 RCA plugs.
The most important reason for developing this cable comes down to just how affordable good quality digital players and turntables have got. We needed a cable to match that performance. Producing genuinely high-performance cables that carry a musical signal with a real sense of coherence is a big challenge and we are justifiably proud of our award winning C-line interconnects.
ARAY conductor geometry, multi-strand oxygen free copper signal and return conductors. High density overwrapped foil shielding, reduces signal loss caused by high frequency interference. Unique RCA plug gold-plating process improves signal transfer across audio frequencies. Over moulded plug surround provides high reliability connection.
The Chord C-line is designed to work with all line level components, CD players, streaming devices, DVD players, home theatre amplifiers, tuners, phono stages and pre to power amplifier connections. This cable can also be used with RCA equipped turntables.
Available in 0.5m and 1m lengths.
You can tell Chord is relatively pleased with its Tuned ARAY technology. Until now, however, it’s been aimed at the high-end hi-fi listener only. But that was before the C-line stereo RCA interconnect. Build Even with all this technology, high-grade copper conductors and high-density foil shielding, what difference can a metre of cable make to...
SOUND QUALITY Swapping in the C-Line for my usual Van Den Hul interconnect (which costs more than twice the price of the Chord) and it’s obvious this is no run-of-the-mill budget interconnect. Its sound is extremely clear and open with a dynamic range which belies its price. On Led Zeppelin’s ‘Dazed And Confused’ bass had...
