Product review: Chord Company Clearway Power mains cable - Hi-Fi Choice May 2023

‘… a unique sound that can be quite a challenge for an audio system to reproduce well, but here is handled perfectly with the Clearway Power cable installed. This is a great-value cable upgrade for any system.’ Hi-Fi Choice

Product review: Chord Company Sarum T speaker cable - Stereonet April 2023

‘Provided the rest of your system is up to it, using the Chord Company’s Sarum T speaker cables is a revelation, with a palpable cohesion and naturalness that made me want to listen to album after album all the way through, as if for the first time. So I recommend you audition this range of...

Product review: Chord Company PowerARAY - The Ear March 2023

‘I am sure the Chord Company will do very well with the Power ARAY. Whilst I am unsure how it would respond in a system that already contains alternative mains conditioning, regeneration or filtering products, I would advise all audiophiles to talk to their Chord Company dealer about trying one. I certainly have no plans...

Product Review: Chord Company PowerHAUS M6 - Hi-Fi Pig Feb 2023

It allowed my system to perform closer to what I believe is its full potential. I heard cleaner-sounding music that seemed to float around the speakers. Frequency extension was subjectively wider, timing qualities of musicians were easier to appreciate. Via the PowerHAUS M6, the music sounds more dynamic and has a greater impact. The soundstage...

Product review: Chord Company PowerHAUS M6 mains distribution block - The Ear Feb 2023

‘The Powerhaus M6 has raised the bar of my system’s performance. The M6 is supplied with a basic power cable but I highly recommend the Epic ARAY mains cable used for this review, it’s not inexpensive at £750 for the 1.5m length provided (1m is £500), but I consider that a fair price for the...

Product review: Chord Company Clearway Analogue RCA - WHAT HI-FI? Feb 2023

‘With its new plugs, the 2022 Clearway RCA simply makes our system sparkle more. It’s the difference a fresh coat of white paint or a wipe-down of a mirror makes: everything is just cleaner, pulled into focus, and there’s more detail, allowing the system to deliver a more emotive and tangible performance.’ WHAT HI-FI?

Product review : Chord Company PowerHAUS M6 mains block - Hi-Fi+ Feb 2023

‘There’s more articulation to notes, diction is clearer, phrasing more apparent, and dynamics more impactful.. Would you, should you pay twice the price for the M6 over the S6? I’d say so. Chord Company helpfully sent me a PowerHAUS S6 so Iwas able to do a brief comparison. Both are strong performers, and if your...

Product review: Chord Company Clearway Analogue RCA cable – What Hi-Fi? Oct 2022

Chord Company Clearway Analogue RCA cable reviewed by What Hi-Fi? Oct 2022 ‘Current owners of the Clearway Analogue RCA with silver plugs need not rush out to upgrade immediately, as that cable remains a perfectly fine performer for the money. But if you feel your home audio system needs a refresh or a little lift,...
