CaracterísticasChord Anthem Reference (New cable design inspired by Sarum. Dynamics, detail and timbre combined with outstanding coherence)
Conductors: New tri-conductor configuration inspired by Chord Sarum. Multi-strand silver-plated heavy gauge oxygen free copper conductors arranged in triple twist configuration, PTFE insulation. Heavy gauge conductors lower resistance and improve definition and dynamics. Single signal and twin return semi floating conductor termination. Silver-plated conductors in combination with PTFE insulation improves signal transfer and signal speed at frequency extremes producing outstanding dynamics and coherence. Tri-conductor configuration improves definition, detail and coherence across all audio frequencies.
Shielding: High-density 95% braided shield combined with over-wrapped heavy gauge foil shield, high efficiency extended frequency shielding effective to high frequencies.
Fully floating high frequency effective shield improves micro-dynamics and micro-details. Vibration damping, protective outer jacket minimises vibration induced noise from external sources and prevents impedance changes to cable.
Chord VEE 3 silver-plated RCA plug: The new plug surround takes design cues from the acrylic plug casing fitted to the Chord Sarum interconnects. The material used for the plug casing is ABS with a textured finish that makes the VEE 3 plugs easy to install and remove. The new shape ABS outer shell is combined with a new internal design featuring direct silver-plated signal contacts. The signal insulation block is PTFE and the unique gold-plating process improves signal transfer across all frequencies. The signal return surround contact provides precise high-pressure contact with RCA sockets. The cable clamp combined with the cable design minimises changes to cable impedance that can have a negative effect on sound quality.
Anthem Reference is available fitted with VEE 3 RCA plugs and XLR plugs.
