Chord Com­pany C-line £40/m

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - Awards 2018 -

For any­one look­ing to give their hi-fi sys­tem a sonic lift that won’t cost the Earth, Chord’s en­try-level C-line in­ter­con­nect re­mains a no-brainer.

It fea­tures Chord’s Tuned ARAY tech­nol­ogy, which pre­vi­ously had only been in­cluded in prod­ucts aimed at the more high-end hi-fi cus­tomer. But its in­creased trans­parency was so favoured that Chord trick­led it down across its ranges to the more en­try-level op­tions.

Add in fea­tures such as high-grade cop­per con­duc­tors and high den­sity foil shield­ing, and you have a cable that is well equipped to make your hi-fi sys­tem shine that bit brighter and truer.

But what dif­fer­ence can a me­tre or so of cable re­ally make to your over­all sys­tem? The C-line’s true forte is the way it al­lows us to hear the real mu­si­cal­ity in a piece, al­low­ing the sys­tem to knit it all to­gether seam­lessly.

As is its sig­na­ture, Chord has cre­ated a prod­uct that doesn’t ig­nore things like the size of the sound­stage and de­tail within, but places its main em­pha­sis on the char­ac­ter of your mu­sic.

Play any song from your mu­sic li­brary, and you’ll find a stronger rhyth­mic drive and more ex­pres­sive dy­nam­ics when the C-line is con­nected to your hi-fi equip­ment than when it is just us­ing the out-of-the-box ca­bles.

In­stead of spend­ing £40 on a smart gadget, spend it on this C-line – your hi-fi sys­tem will thank you.
