What’s at the heart of your system? Increasingly it’s a DAC, with a CD transport, streamer or dedicated Audiophile hard drive connected and maybe a USB so you can use a computer as well – You Tube is full of some amazing films of concerts and while sound quality is never going to be great it’s always going to sound better through the hi fi than the laptop.
So if that’s your system we could do this. We could take out the cable between the transport – or the streamer – and DAC and replace it with the ChordMusic Digital and we could tell you we’d put a better DAC into the system and keep quiet about the cable swap. Then you could sit down, listen to some of your favourite tracks and rave about how amazing the new DAC is , about the levels of detail it’s added, the size of the soundstage, the amazing coherence and the way that every track you played sounded so real and alive – better than you’ve ever heard them. Then we could tell you we didn’t change the DAC what we actually changed was the cable, and all that wonderful stuff you’d heard was what the ChordMusic Digital was carrying and your existing cable wasn’t.
The ChordMusic Digital, like all the ChordMusic cables uses Taylon® and the profound and ground breaking improvements it brings to analogue cables apply to digital cables of all types as well.
There are some truly stunning DACs available and some of them will cost less than the ChordMusic Digital. That isn’t a reason not to try the ChordMusic Digital. It’s a digital cable that carries a signal with a degree of accuracy that makes it’s as thrilling and profound as the analogue cables.
Anything you lose between the digital output of your source and DAC you are not getting back and listening to the ChordMusic digital will show you just how much critical information the cable between the source and the DAC should be carrying.
Borrow the ChordMusic Digital from a ChordMusic retailer and judge it on its ability and the contribution it makes to the musical performance of your system.
One sure-fire way of starting a flame war on forums and Facebook pages is by mentioning the abilities of cables in your Hi-Fi system. Some will argue based on pure science, others by experience. Personally, I choose to use my ears and a healthy dollop of skepticism. The thing is, no matter the reason, leads...
