Chord Company unveils first DIN cable for Epic range

Chord Company has introduced its first DIN-terminated cable for the high-performance Epic range, offering a key performance upgrade over the Shawline range DIN while being a more affordable option over the upper-range Signature Tuned ARAY Analogue DIN.

The new DIN interconnect construction, which has been developed by Chord Company’s engineers, is completely different to other analogue interconnects in the Epic range. It strives to improve musicality over the Shawline DIN while still taking advantage of its unique performance-enhancing Tuned ARAY geometry. 

Usually only used in the higher-end cable ranges, the Epic DIN benefits from wide-bandwidth, silver-plated, oxygen-free copper conductors, plus multi-tiered foil shielding systems for all conductor pairs, a technique that reduces interaction between all the different signals that DIN cables need to carry. 

The low-noise, wide-bandwidth shielding also ensures that maximum benefit is obtained from Naim Audio’s latest DR amps and upgrades. 

The DIN cable also features composite layered PE insulation for the conductors, foiled high-frequency shielding for both signal and ground, with an overall foil shield adding further high-frequency signal protection, plus split conductor geometry for impedance-matching.

Engineers implemented the design, extensive shielding and proprietary Tuned ARAY geometry to both deliver the musical characteristics inherent in Naim Audio equipment and bring out the best possible performance from wider DIN-connected devices from the likes of Quad, A&R, Leak and B&O. 

Epic DIN is available now at £500 per one metre.
