The Chord Company Debuts Affordable C-screen Speaker Cable


The Chord Company has launched a new speaker cable priced at £5 per metre.

C-screen is a brand new shielded speaker cable aimed at both audio and home cinema systems.

Chord’s design objective was to produce a cable discreet enough for easy installation, with all the performance benefits that shielding can bring. C-screen is just 8mm in diameter and flexible enough to route around corners with ease. It’s finished with a white outer jacket which, protects the shielding and makes it virtually invisible against white skirting boards. C-screen features multi-stranded oxygen-free copper conductors, insulated with low-density polyethylene and arranged in a twisted-pair configuration to reduce interference. The cable is then enclosed in a PVC casing that reduces mechanical noise and spaces the conductors correctly, relative to the twin-foil shielding.

C-screen has the same characteristics as Chord’s other shielded speaker cables: the ability to carry a musical signal with a genuine sense of musical coherence and involvement; shielded speaker cables bring real performance benefits to both hi-fi and home cinema systems, where interference can seriously affect sound quality.

At just £5 per metre, C-screen is an ideal product for home cinema systems, where often complex cable-run requirements are the norm. It performs extremely well over longer runs C-screen is priced at just £5p/m unterminated (off the reel). Factory and dealer terminations are available for a supplement.
