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.

Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.
Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.
The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.
We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
