2 x 3.5m (A Pair) CHORD Company Epic Twin Terminated Audio Speaker Cables.
The auction applies to the version 2018 of Chord Epic Company.

 

• Cables are high pressure crimped of professional electric Chord Hex Gun crimping tool AIRLOC HIGH PERFORMANCE TERMINATION (for maximum contact surface area).

• Terminated High Quality 24-Gold-Plated Pure Red Copper Airloc SIGMA 4mm spring loaded plugs at the both end.

• The ends finished with colour coded Red & Black and marked (gold arrows) directional branded heat shrink sleeves.

NOTE: The cables are directional so prior to connecting, make sure that the arrows run from the amplifier to the speakers terminals.

 

AIRLOC a solder-free, airtight perfect fusion between the two metals of cable and plug. This ‘cold weld’ method allows the cable and plug to offer the optimum signal transfer and therefore, better sound quality. It also reduces contact resistance and ensures perfect long-term performance.

 

Additionally all strip of connectors ends They are coated with extra RED & BlACK High Density Matte Solid Expandable Braided Cable Sleeving.It is the Tight, High Quality, High Density, Matte, Solid Sleeving Which protects and hides wires while Increasing air flow.

 

 

REGARDING SIGMA PLUGS

We are proud with our new product and we believe it will improve the sound quality of any audio system.We offer designed to fit the 4mm amplifier and speaker terminal socket found on most high end audio separators such as Arcam, Linn, Quad and Naim amplifiers, these 4mm plugs are constructed from a gold plated red copper connector and the cable termination is by CRIMPING.This plugs is available in three different sizes and fits 2.8mm, 3.4mm and 4mm diameter cable and requires crimping with a heavy duty crimping tool to ensure consistently high levels of performance and connectivity regardless of the conductor cross-section, which has a very important effect on the transmission of a smooth signal and very low resistance unlike mostly available Brass plugs.The spring loaded pin section of the plug allows for optimal connection to the speaker or amplifier terminal socket.

 

We use professional electric and manual high quality crimping tools to terminated audio cables and we offer the possibility of terminating our products with these plugs.If you want to terminate your cables yourself you will need a crimping tool or you can contact your local Hi-Fi supplier.

Materials such as audio cables and its connections are a very important link in the entire Hi-Fi audio chain, which is why we decided to introduce new plugs, which are made of red copper and their surface is covered with gold, so that the signal flows clearly and without obstacles on the way.

We know metals such as brass or alloy are very contaminated so we want to explain it simply.

For example: a tube filled with hair restricts the flow of water more than a clean tube of the same shape and size.Likewise, electrons can flow freely and easily through a copper wire, but cannot flow so easily through a steel or brass wire of the same shape and size. The difference between copper and brass is related to their microscopic structure and electron configuration and is quantified by the property called resistivity.

Conductivity refers to the ability of a material to transfer energy. There are different types of conductivity, including electrical, thermal and acoustic conductivity. The most electrically conductive element is pure silver, followed by very close are copper and gold. Silver also has the highest thermal conductivity of all elements and the highest light reflectance.While it is the best conductor, copper and gold are more commonly used in electrical applications because copper is less expensive and gold has a much higher corrosion resistance.As silver tarnishes, it is less desirable at high frequencies as the outer surface becomes less conductive.

Brass has six times weaker conductivity than copper.

Brass oxides they are hard and highly contaminated, strongly adhering and act as an effective insulator, while copper oxides are softer and conductive. Therefore, connections and terminations of copper wires are almost the best conductor of electricity, unfortunately most of the available plugs on the market are made of brass.

Why did we name our plugs Sigma? because electrical conductivity is measured in Siemens per meter (S / m) and is commonly denoted by the Greek letter σ (Sigma).

Additionally all strip of connectors ends They are coated with extra RED & BlACK High Density Matte Solid Expandable Braided Cable Sleeving.It is the Tight, High Quality, High Density, Matte, Solid Sleeving Which protects and hides wires while Increasing air flow.

 

NOTE: The cables are directional so prior to connecting, make sure that the arrows run from the amplifier to the speakers terminals.

OVERVIEW: 
Epic Twin

12 AWG silver plated conductors taken from Chord Odyssey. Conductors are spaced with a PVC jacket for mechanical damping before the foil and braid shielding is applied. Outer jacket is translucent PVC to provide further mechanical damping. The heavier conductors of Odyssey made it ideal for floor standing loudspeakers where it will help to bring control and definition, particularly across the lower frequencies.

IN DEPTH INFO:

“Bass is really well controlled and tight, while timing is excellent. To sum up these cables in one word, they are ‘musical’. In short, they are quite simply a superb sounding set of speaker cables”

*****HI-FI Choice Sept 2014*****
Chord Epic speaker cable is the result of a happy marriage between two of our award winning speaker cables. Epic uses the same conductors as Chord Odyssey, and the shielding, visible through its translucent jacket is taken from our Signature speaker cable. The shielding brings big improvements right across the frequency range. There is space around individual instruments and the timbre of instruments is easy to hear. Violins, cellos and violas sound more realistic, likewise pianos, bass notes have great definition and rhythms are easy to follow and get involved with.

Fitting properly effective shields to speaker cable is a pretty big deal and fitting shielded speaker cable to your system can border on astonishing. The reduction and the level of perceived noise means that very fine dynamic and tonal information is easily heard, and brings improvements not only to the high frequency performance of a system, but also the bass and mid frequencies. The space around notes and the extra harmonic content that Epic can bring to a system is really surprising. The complex harmonic information that makes up the timbre of stringed and bowed instruments is carried extremely accurately.

Epic could bring some serious improvements to the sound quality of your system, and it’s a big step toward making a real connection with your music.
