Chord Company Clearway Speaker Cable Goes X-Rated
Chord Company's Clearway speaker cable gets an upgrade, replacing the existing Clearway speaker cable and boasts the benefit of the A/V cable specialist's recently launched XLPE insulation technology.
Joining both the EpicX and LaylineX, ClearwayX builds upon the original, and much-lauded, Clearway construction by upgrading the critical dielectric to Cross-Linked Polyethylene (XLPE). XLPE introduces benefits in phase stability over previously used materials, says the British cable company.
We are told that ClearwayX's XLPE-insulated conductors are built from multi-strand oxygen-free copper and are arranged in a twisted-pair configuration to reduce interference. Furthermore, the two conductors are protected with a layer of soft PVC to correctly space the shielding between the conductors and to minimise any mechanically induced noise. Additionally, ClearwayX features two contra-wound high-density foil shields that provide a level of shielding that is effective to high frequencies, states the Salisbury-based manufacturer.
Doug Maxwell, Chord Company's Sales Director, told StereoNET:
We're delighted to make our multi-award-winning Clearway speaker cable even better for 2020 with our XLPE technology. The new ClearwayX has qualities that would normally be associated with considerably more expensive cables… it is both an affordable and highly effective upgrade for music lovers wanting to get the best from the equipment they already own.
The Chord Company's ClearwayX speaker cable will be available from August and is priced at $36 RRP per metre.
