Product review: Chord Sarsen speaker cable – Hi-Fi Choice June 2015

Recenzja w czerwiec, 2015

Apart from sounding great, the cables that connect your power amp to your speakers often have to be routed inconspicuously around the edges of a carpet. Therefore, something that can handle the power from the amplifier has to be balanced with a cable that is both flexible and thin.

The cable can be terminated in 24 karat gold-plated banana plugs, direct gold-plated copper spade connectors or BFA Camcon connectors. Banana plugs are fitted to the sample on review here. As with all good-quality cables, directionality is important and the correct connection from the amplifier to the speakers is marked with small arrows on the heatshrink that is fitted to the ends of the cables and banana plugs.

In use, I find that the Sarsen delivers a very clean and open sound to my loudspeakers. Bass response does not feel constrained either. In no way do I get the feeling that the output from my amplifier is being squeezed through restrictive conductors. So if you really have a problem with the size of a speaker cable, but don’t want to compromise on performance, the Sarsen is well worth considering – and represents great value for money too.
