Chord Company launches its first ever Epic-range DIN cable
Chord Company has introduced a DIN-terminated interconnect into its high-performance Epic range for the first time; the popular Epic range sits precisely in the middle of the company’s seven-strong cable range groupings. Epic DIN offers a key performance upgrade over the Shawline range DIN (from £225), plus greater affordability over the (up range) Signature Tuned ARAY Analogue DIN (from £800).
In order to improve musicality over the Shawline DIN, yet keep affordability below the Signature DIN, Chord Company’s engineers have developed a new construction which is completely different to other analogue interconnects in the Epic range, yet still takes advantage of the company’s unique performance-enhancing Tuned ARAY geometry.
Epic DIN benefits from wide-bandwidth silver-plated oxygen-free copper conductors normally found in the company’s higher-end cable ranges, plus multi-tiered foil shielding systems for all conductor pairs; the technique reduces interaction between all the different signals that DIN cables need to carry. The special low-noise wide-bandwidth shielding also ensures that maximum benefit is obtained from Naim Audio’s latest DR amps and upgrades.
Further features include composite layered PE insulation for the conductors, foiled high-frequency shielding for both signal and ground, with an overall foil shield adding further high-frequency signal protection, plus split conductor geometry for impedance-matching.
