To achieve this performance the oxygen free copper multi-strand conductors have been tin-plated. This technique was chosen after experimentation showed that tin-plated conductors helped to minimize signal loss. The conductors are arranged in a twisted pair configuration and insulated with polyethylene. They are surrounded with a strong, high density PVC jacket that makes the cable easy to install and protects the conductors.
Although Leyline is most commonly used to carry signals from a central amplifier in multi-room installations, it is also becoming an increasingly popular choice for use in compact hi-fi and home cinema systems. Its high performance will help to produce excellent sound quality from even the smallest speakers and its discrete size and colour make it inconspicuous and simple to install
CONDUCTORS: 2 x 16 AWG tinned, multi-stranded oxygen free copper.
CONFIGURATION: Twisted pair configuration.
CONDUCTOR INSULATION: Polyethylene (zero halogen). Red is positive, white is negative.
JACKET: Polyethylene (zero halogen).
DIAMETER: 6 mm.
APPLICATIONS: High quality installation cable. Also works well with lifestyle home cinema and audio systems. Tinned conductors maintain treble frequencies over long lengths.
The Chord Company has been designing and producing cables for hi-fi and home cinema systems since 1985, in their facility set deep in the heart of Wiltshire, UK. Chord know just how important cables are and how the correct interconnect, HDMI and speaker cable can transform the experience and pleasure of listening to or watching your favourite piece of music or film.
Cables are not and never have been an accessory. They are a vital part of your system, and choosing the right cable is more important now than it ever has been.
The typical domestic home has become a hostile place for a signal as complex as a piece of music to travel from one component to another. Chord cables are designed to minimise the effects of this electrical interference. You might not know it’s there, but you’ll definitely know when it isn’t!
Over twenty-seven years of research, experimentation and close co-operation with some of the best equipment manufacturers means that right now, the cables and interconnects that The Chord Company produces are some of the very best available. Cutting edge design and obsessive attention to build quality makes for cables that will reveal the true performance of any hi-fi or home cinema system.
Whatever your system and whatever your passion, be it music, film or games, Chord cables can take your experience to a new level. Find the perfect connection for your system on our website or in-store.
