Chord Epic is built from heavy gauge silver-plated, multi-strand, oxygen-free copper conductors with an increased volume of PTFE insulation around each conductor. These are encased in a specially chosen PVC jacket to minimise mechanical noise and this is protected by a nylon braid.
Then of course there’s the Tuned ARAY conductor geometry. The end result is a cable that will carry a lot more detail, dynamics and better portray the individual timbres of instruments. The Tuned ARAY conductor geometry means it carries this extra information with all the coherence it needs to make for a genuinely musical and involving sound.
There are a whole host of mid-price CD players, streamers and DACS that are renowned for the exceptional amount of detail they produce. Every time we introduce Epic into even a modest system the performance increases in detail and coherence. If you want the analytical experience it’s there, but so is the musical involvement.
As with all Chord cables - pretty much any quality connector combinations are available at a length to suit, just let us know what you require and we will get back to you!
Epic Analogue RCA
Epic RCA takes all the coherence of Shawline, along with its heavier gauge conductors and improved shielding and brings a new level of detail and involvement to players better known for their analytical rather than musical performance.
Epic Analogue subwoofer cable
Chord's dedicated subwoofer cable. Available in 3m, 5m and custom lengths/terminations to order. Designed to complement the Epic range and enhance any music/TV/movie/game surround system.
Epic Analogue XLR
Epic XLR uses the same materials as the Epic RCA. The design is adapted to include an extra conductor, producing a true balanced performance. Neutrality and transparency are as special as the RCA version. Epic XLR carries high levels of detail and with real musical coherence.
Epic Digital uses Tuned ARAY conductor geometry developed specifically for digital cables. Combined with separate shields for send and return and silver-plated, PTFE insulated conductors, it brings a degree of coherence to systems that conventional digital cable designs simply cannot match.
Epic Streaming cable
Ethernet cables don’t normally use high quality silver-plated conductors, high speed insulation and high density shielding. Neither do they use Chord's unique Tuned ARAY conductor geometry. Chord Epic streaming cable has been designed to get the best and most coherent sound from any decent audio streamer at an affordable price.
Epic speaker cable
Epic is a shielded speaker cable that works well with pretty much every style of speaker from mid-price to high-end. Epic brings detail, dynamics, resolution and coherence. It’s particularly good at bringing control and definition to bass frequencies. A great choice for floor standing speakers.
Epic Reference speaker cable
Epic Reference makes a huge jump in dynamics, detail and musical coherence by combining the separately shielded conductor design from Chord Signature Reference and the silver-plated, PTFE insulated 12AWG conductors of Chord Epic.
