CaracterísticasChord Crimson VEE 3 (CrimsonPlus interconnect upgraded to Crimson VEE 3)
The colour stays the same, everything else is new!
Conductors: New heavier gauge conductors. Multi-strand oxygen free copper conductors lower resistance and improve detail and dynamics. The twisted pair configuration conductors are insulated with a low-density polyethylene. Cotton thread cable spacers run alongside the insulated conductors providing mechanical damping. The conductors and spacers are wrapped with a layer of natural fibre.
Improved shielding: New high coverage 90% braided shield and 25% overlapped foil shield, improved signal protection across a wider frequency range.
Fully floating wide frequency effective high-density braid and foil shielding improves detail and dynamic signal transfer by minimising signal loss through interference.
Soft PVC internal shield and conductor surround adds further mechanical damping and avoids microphony, while a hard PVC outer jacket protects the overall cable and prevents changes to cable impedance.
Chord VEE 3 gold-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 gold-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.
Crimson VEE 3 is available fitted with VEE 3 RCA plugs, Din plugs and XLR plugs.
