The design objective was to produce a cable discreet enough for easy installation, with all the performance benefits that shielding can bring.
The C-screen is just 8mm in diameter and flexible enough to route around corners with ease. It’s finished with a white outer jacket which protects the shielding and makes it virtually invisible against white skirting boards. The C-screen features multi-stranded Oxygen-Free Copper conductors, and is insulated with low-density polyethylene and arranged in a twisted-pair configuration to reduce interference. The cable is then enclosed in a PVC casing that reduces mechanical noise and spaces the conductors correctly, relative to the twin-foil shielding.
The C-screen has the same characteristics as there other shielded speaker cables: the ability to carry a musical signal with a genuine sense of musical coherence and involvement; shielded speaker cables bring real performance benefits to both hi-fi and home cinema systems, where interference can seriously affect sound quality. At just £5 per metre and with the unquestionable performance one might expect from a Chord Company cable, C-screen is an ideal product for home cinema systems, where often complex cable-run requirements are the norm. It performs extremely well over longer runs and is easy to install.
