Chord Chorus 2
CONDUCTORS: Solid core silver-plated signal conductor and external signal return conductor
CONFIGURATION: Internal shielded signal conductor with external signal return path
CONDUCTOR INSULATION: Teflon®. Chord believes that to obtain the most neutral tonal characteristic from silver-plated conductors it is vital to use Teflon® insulation. Chorus 2 cable is precision built to minimise unwanted mechanical noise
SHIELDING: High frequency effective dual layer shielding surrounding signal conductor. Heavy gauge overlapped foil shield surrounded by 100% coverage silver-plated braid.
JACKET: Teflon® shielding surround and external braided jacket. COLOUR: Red and Black
TERMINATIONS: Fitted with new Chord VEE Plugs. A high performance RCA (phono) plug with vibration eliminating ABS enclosure. Teflon® insulated centre pin, low mass signal return surround. Non compression clamping system reduces potential signal corruption. Silver-plated contact areas maintain single material signal path. Also available fitted with XLR plugs. Custom terminations available.
The Chorus 2 is the first interconnect in the Chord Company range to feature the high frequency effective shielding system that was first used on the company’s ground breaking Signature interconnect. Chorus 2 was recently subjected to a slight re-design that illustrates perfectly how our ongoing development of high end cables can influence the design of other cables throughout the range.
The shielding system has been improved and the Teflon™ insulation is now a low density variant. These are small changes that have brought a genuine improvement to performance. Individual notes are more focused and easier to follow, drum beats are properly dynamic and the subtle resonances that make up a musical timbre are properly revealed. Rhythms are presented coherently and complex rhythms are simpler to follow.
Use it with:
The original Chord Chorus was almost always used with Odyssey speaker cable; the combination would help system deliver music in a big bold and dynamic manner, making for a thrilling and involving experience. Chorus 2 builds on these qualities but the improved high frequency effective shielding makes it better able to carry even very fine dynamic information, making even subtle rhythmic changes easy to hear.
Odyssey still remains a hugely popular speaker cable choice for use with the Chorus 2. However, Chord Epic speaker cable, which shares its silver plated Teflon insulated conductors with Odyssey and borrows its shielding system from the Chord Signature speaker cable, produces stunning results, particularly in terms of note definition and dynamics.
The Chorus 2 is available in 0.5 and 1 metre lengths. Custom lengths are available to order at $300/m.
