Product review: Chord Crimson VEE 3 – Hi-Fi World review Oct 2013

Reviewed in October, 2013


For the first time I found that I was being made aware of the background sounds and echoes in the studio. Each of the performers seemed to have gained some space around them and it made for a very inviting listen. The texture of all of the sounds was filled out and better described, with the attack of the trumpets having particular impact, although it was very well controlled.

The sway of the rhythms in ‘Ja Vidi’ seemed to be more obvious with this cable and the soundstage seemed to be occupied by sounds that had matured and put on a little weight. The bass seemed to go very deep and be quite substantial, whilst retaining a good level of agility

This is a cable that, despite the fairly moderate price, offers performance that is significantly above that expected at this price point. It is well mannered, smooth and detailed. It may be too revealing for budget electronics though.


An excellent cable offering a taste of real high-end performance at an affordable price.
