Following the introduction in October of two Tuned ARAY Ethernet cables, Indigo Tuned ARAY Ethernet and Ethernet Sarum Tuned ARAY Ethernet, The Chord Company has further extended the implementation of its proprietary cable-tuning technology into its digital portfolio with three new cables joining the Tuned ARAY family: Anthem Digital Tuned ARAY; Signature Digital Tuned ARAY and Chord Indigo Digital Tuned ARAY.
Anthem Digital Tuned ARAY (£220 1m)
Anthem Digital Tuned ARAY is a completely new digital interconnect intended as an affordable introduction to Tuned ARAY technology.
The Chord Company Anthem Digital Tuned ARAY is built from a design which uses solid-core silver-plated signal conductors with PTFE insulation and is shielded with a combination of foil and high-density braid; the shields are then protected with a PTFE outer jacket and is fitted with The Chord Company’s custom VEE 3 RCA plugs.
Signature Digital Tuned ARAY (£400 1m)
Signature Digital Tuned ARAY uses high-purity single-crystal solid-core signal and return conductors in Tuned ARAY configuration. The conductor insulation is gas-foamed polyethylene and each conductor is protected with a composite shielding system. A soft PVC shield-surround provides mechanical damping, while a hard PVC outer casing protects the cable and prevents changes to the cable’s impedance, caused by compression on the internal shielding and insulation.
The Chord Company’s ultra-low-mass silver-plated non-compression RCA plugs are fitted (military-grade silver-plated BNC plugs are also available) along with the company’s precision-machined acrylic plug shrouds. Like other cables using The Chord Company’s Tuned ARAY technology, the Signature Digital Tuned ARAY brings a sense of coherence and performance to the system it’s used in, or rather, the music played through it.
Chord Indigo Digital Tuned ARAY (£900 1m)
The Indigo Digital Tuned ARAY is a completely new cable design and one that has been inspired, and heavily influenced by, Chord’s flagship Sarum Tuned ARAY digital cable and like the Sarum, the Indigo Digital uses Tuned ARAY conductor technology.
There is a single core of polished, silver-plated copper, surrounded by PTFE insulation with a combination shield of high-density silver-plated copper braid and heavy-gauge silver-plated foil.
The Chord Company’s ultra-low-mass silver-plated non-compression RCA plugs are fitted (military grade silver-plated BNC plugs are also available) along with the company’s precision-machined acrylic plug shrouds.
