Chord Company unleashes fiver a metre speaker cable
The Chord Company are known for their top quality audio cables, and premium prices but their new C-screen shielded speaker cable is aimed at bringing joy to both audio and home cinema systems without pounding your pocket.
The C-screen speaker cable joins the line up of Chord Company shielded speaker cables, including the Clearway and the Signature Reference.
Chord set-out to produce a cable discreet enough for easy installation, with all the performance benefits that shielding can bring.
C-screen is just 8mm in diameter and flexible enough to route around the corners found in the home.
The cable is classily finished with a white outer jacket which protects the shielding and makes it virtually invisible against white skirting boards.
C-screen features multi-stranded oxygen-free copper conductors, insulated with low-density polyethylene and arranged in a twisted-pair configuration to reduce interference. The cable is then enclosed in a PVC casing that aims to reduce mechanical noise and spaces the conductors correctly, relative to the twin-foil shielding.
The C-screen cables have the same characteristics as Chord’s other shielded speaker cables. The Chord Company says:
the ability to carry a musical signal with a genuine sense of musical coherence and involvement; shielded speaker cables bring real performance benefits to both hi-fi and home cinema systems, where interference can seriously affect sound quality”.
At £5 per metre C-screen is said to be an ideal product for home cinema systems, where often complex cable-run requirements are the norm.
C-screen is the ideal performance upgrade from basic starter cables and ‘that’ll-do’ installations 🙂
C-screen is priced at £5p/m unterminated (off the reel). Factory and dealer terminations are available for a supplement.
