This cable is part of the Shawline cable range which includes loudspeaker cable and digital and analogue interconnects. Shawline cables have been designed to perform together. However, all Chord interconnects and speaker cables follow a similar design philosophy. This means that all Chord cable ranges are compatible with each other.
Chord’s Shawline Digital USB conductors are built from silver-plated oxygen free copper. Insulation is PTFE, the cable geometry is optimised for USB audio. The unique shielding has been designed to work across a wide frequency range and reduce mechanical noise. The conductors are contained within a specifically chosen outer jacket to ensure flexibility and to further reduce mechanical noise and the cable is fitted with Chord custom gold-plated USB plugs.
Chord Shawline digital interconnects are built to exacting standards and rigorously tested at their UK facility. Tuned ARAY interconnects require extremely precise construction methods and each cable has been built by their team of trained technicians.
The Tuned ARAY conductor configuration was originally developed on their flagship interconnect cables. Tuned ARAY digital cables carry high frequency digital signals with a very high degree of accuracy that preserves the rhythmic integrity of music. Audio systems requiring USB connections will produce a more coherent and musical experience when connected with Chord Tuned ARAY USB cables. Tuned ARAY cables allow you to connect properly with your favourite music. The increase in performance that Tuned ARAY cables bring will be immediately noticeable. However, the performance will further improve with use. Chord’s experience of Tuned ARAY cables is that the improvements are quite noticeable, particularly in terms of musical coherence.
