Product review: C-stream Ethernet - Hi-Fi Choice Review July 2014

C-stream Ethernet cable This cable is certainly well made and the connectors are noticeably superior in construction to the usual all-plastic RJ45 plugs that are often fitted to Ethernet cables and which squeeze the cable for strain relief. The C-stream, on the other hand, has a firm plastic clip and a gold-plated metal screen around...

Product review: C-power - Hi-Fi Choice Review March 2014

C-power Mains Cable The Chord C-power is an easy to fit upgrade to pretty much any audio component that has an IEC input socket. This screened power cable follows the same design principles as every other Chord cable, which means attention has been paid to shielding, conductors and termination. The C-power is fitted with a...

Product review: Chord Sarum Tuned ARAY cable system - Hi-Fi+ 115 Sept 2014

Chord Sarum Tuned ARAY Cable System They might be right to think there is no way that Chord’s Sarum Tuned ARAY used in a complete systemic context can have an effect that makes the sum of the system sound greater than its component parts. But I don’t think so. I think most people who listen...
