ChordMusic the inside story

Chord has officially launched its most ambitious cable range to date in ChordMusic. First previewed at Bristol last year it has taken until now for Nigel Finn and Alan Gibb to gather enough of this uniquely insulated cable to build both interconnects and speaker cables for the ChordMusic range. The ChordMusic interconnects have the same design and silver plated copper conductors as the Sarum Super ARAY cables but use what Chord has dubbed Taylon, a military spec dielectric that outperforms the PTFE used on the Sarum models.
