The Signature Tuned ARAY XLR, like its RCA counterpart, is a completely new cable design. The Tuned ARAY technology used in the build process produces the same remarkable and musical results as other Tuned ARAY cables; that same, almost perfect balance of all the things a high fidelity should do and an addictive musical coherence.
Detail and dynamics flood out but in such a musical way that it’s easy to forget you are listening to a system and instead become engrossed in the musicians and the music they’re playing. The Signature Tuned ARAY XLR will let you learn so much more about your favourite music and it will let you discover just how good your hi-fi really is – and like us, that’s probably going to be quite a bit better than you thought.
Listen to the Signature Tuned ARAY XLR with: “Mercy Street” from the album “South of Delia” by Richard Shindell. A beautiful version of Peter Gabriel’s song by a wonderful singer/songwriter; lovely harmony singing from Lucy Kaplansky as well.
Chord Signature Tuned ARAY analogue interconnects all use the same unique conductor formation developed during our research into Tuned ARAY conductor geometry. Each Signature conductor is built using high quality silver-plated conductors. Insulation is PTFE and the shielding consists of two layers of high-density silver-plated braid that is effective across a very wide frequency range. The shielding is covered with a white PTFE precision applied outer extrusion. Like Sarum, Signature Tuned ARAY cable is produced to extremely tight tolerances.
The Signature Tuned ARAY XLR cable is fitted with a high quality Neutrik XLR plug. The contacts are silver-plated, and the cable is terminated and configured in order to avoid any compression on the conductors and shields that would affect performance.
The Signature Tuned ARAY XLR is exceptionally transparent, both dynamically and particularly in terms of detail, timbre and pitch. This is an interconnect that can be used with almost any level of equipment and will deliver music with high levels of detail and an extraordinary level of cohesiveness.
