The Chord Company Epic Streaming
Ethernet cables don’t use high quality silver-plated conductors, high speed insulation materials, high density separate pair shielding or high density overall shielding. Neither do they use Chords Tuned ARAY conductor geometry.
The Epic Streaming cable uses all of those things. It also uses a high precision RJ45 connector with gold-plated contacts that we modify in order to be able to directly solder the conductors to the contact pins. One of the more pleasurable aspects of working at The Chord Company is the demonstration room. It means spending lots of time listening to music, it’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it. Chord started listening to streamers when they first became available and they started experimenting with cables when they started listening to streamers.
Those first experiments showed that it was worth spending time on some further research. They wanted to see if they could develop the Tuned ARAY conductor concept to work with streaming cables. The Epic streaming cable will help system to sound more musically coherent, involving and detailed. Chord don’t produce any product that doesn’t add to the musical experience, so put any preconceptions to one side, borrow one and have a listen.
Longer custom lengths are available to order.
