New in box a CHORD EPIC Analogue Interconnect 5 Pin Din to 2x RCA 1m
Epic Analogue RCA-DIN
Epic This is the first time Chord have produced DIN cables in the Epic range.
To improve musically on the Shawline DIN but without the Signature price tag wasn’t easy.Chord Company Epic DIN construction is a complete departure from the other analogue cables in the Epic range.
Epic DIN uses high bandwidth conductors normally found in our higher cable ranges. It also uses multi-tiered shielding systems for all conductor pairs, reducing interaction between the different signals that DIN cables need to carry. This low noise high bandwidth shielding ensures that the listener obtains the maximum benefit from the latest DR upgrades that have been so successfully introduced into Naim Audio products.
The new design, shielding and Tuned ARAY geometry delivers the rhythm, groove and soul of the music – something that Naim users have always enjoyed from their equipment. Epic DIN should also be auditioned with older DIN-equipped products such as Quad. The results can be quite staggering.
ARAY conductor geometry results in a cable that will carry a lot more detail, dynamics and better portray the individual timbres of instruments. It carries this extra information with all the coherence it needs to make for a genuinely musical and involving sound.
Available as standard in 1m lengths.
In a recent issue of Hi-Fi Choice, the Epic Analog RCA cable was reviewed. The author used the Epic RCA to connect their valve preamp to the monoblock amplifiers. Testing out the ability to play orchestral music, the reviewer found that the Epic brought clarity without any harshness, and “didn’t cramp the abilities of [the] monoblocks.” Moving on to jazz a la Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, the Epic cables really show what they can do:
There is no excessive harshness or over brightness with the trumpet and it really does sound like it’s being played live in my listening room. This is a real tribute to the silver plating on the conductors of the cable, confirming the Epic as a high-end interconnect that fully justifies its price tag.
ChorAlloy™ Next-generation technology
The growing line-up of ChorAlloy-plated connectors/plugs is already being fitted to Chord Company cables.
The upgraded ChorAlloy™ plating is available on VEE3 and PTFE RCA/phono connectors, ChordOhmic speaker connectors (spade and 4mm banana), BNC connectors, most USB connectors and the connecting pins of DIN and XLR connectors.
C-series cables, Clearway USB cable, streaming cables and mini-jack connectors will remain the same.
ChorAlloy-fitted products can be identified by stickers or indicators on retail packs. Other distinguishing features are the anti-tarnish, steel-like appearance of the connectors and the enhanced performance!
Conductivity is typically measured using DC. Chord Company has always been interested in how its cables perform at higher frequencies: as you move up through the ranges, the bandwidth of the cables increase, along with many other important mechanical characteristics.
At higher frequencies, the clear performance advantage of silver becomes less clear. The presence of the Ag2S can give rise to intermodulation effects at high frequencies. These effects, especially as they are associated outside the normal audible sine wave bandwidth, haven’t ever been considered by any audio connector manufacturers to date (that Chord Company is aware of).
Chord Company looked at different plating techniques over a prolonged period, to try to reduce this effect. Following very considerable listening results, ChorAlloy was born. This multi-metal plating system provides significant musical improvement over previous silver plating techniques and marks a major step forward in connector performance.
The technology offers much lower intermodulation than silver plating, is tarnish-free, RoHS compliant and solderable. But, most importantly, it is musically superior to previous silver-plated connectors.
