CHORD ODYSSEY X Audio Loudspeaker Cables (A Pair) Terminated.

 

• 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 and Gold-Plated Airloc SIGMA Banana 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.

 

We can offer different combination Chord Spade Connectors and Banana Plugs 24Gold-Plated or BFA Z-Type plugs (Compatible with Arcam – Linn – Cyrus and all other good quality audio products).*****

OdysseyX speaker cable available in optional length or custom length. 

 

Chord OdysseyX uses the same materials as RumourX.   Odyssey’s heavier gauge conductors bring so much more detail and dynamics to a system, along with a degree of control and definition that can transform the performance of both floor and stand mounted loudspeakers.  Odyssey was launched in 1998 and set a new standard of performance. It’s neutrality, its compatibility and consistency of performance from system to system made it very rapidly our most popular speaker cable.

Hi-Fi News magazine liked Chord Odyssey so much because of its performance and price that it won the best speaker cable award for five years in a row.

Over the years, changes have been cosmetic only. The current version has a white PVC outer jacket with a diameter of 8mm, still discrete in speaker cable terms and still good enough to let even the biggest of systems sing like they should.


Previous versions of Odyssey speaker cables used PTFE insulation (often referred to as Teflon™) and until the arrival of Taylon®, this was our “go to” material. Although expensive, PTFE offered the best performance.

Material technology is constantly developing and improving and alternatives to PTFE are now available. While the high cost of Taylon® prevents us from using this in all of our ranges, another insulator –  XLPE (Cross-linked Polyethylene) came to our attention. One particular version of this material proved to be clearly better than PTFE, so OdysseyX was born.

The conductors used in OdysseyX are also found in Chord Epic and EpicXL speaker cables.

If you’re considering OdysseyX you should also have a listen to the similarly priced Chord ShawlineX.

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).
