The ChordMusic analogue cable is the most transparent cable we’ve heard. So clear that we could hear each change we made. First we tried a material designed to minimise mechanical noise. The original prototype RCA was astonishing just as it was, but we were curious. The noise reduction material bought extra clarity and silence, which given what we already had was surprising. Then we fitted an extremely lightweight, external silver-plated braid that could be used to cover the cable assembly. Again there was an extra degree of silence which we could hear clearly on the ChordMusic but not on other cables we’d tried it with.
The final colour was decided – white, although black versions are available to order. Plugs remain the same silver-plated ultra-low mass contacts with a machined PTFE surround. We have yet to find a better RCA plug.
