Chord Company SignatureX Tuned ARAY Range Released

Chord Company's SignatureX Tune ARAY cables upgrade the British company's Signature line to its best performance yet.

The new SignatureX Tuned ARAY range of analogue interconnects benefits from upgraded materials, construction, and specification, resulting in what Chord Company says is its “best Signature analogue interconnect in the range's 25-year history”.

The SignatureX Tuned ARAY features cross-linked Polythene (XLPE) insulation, first seen used in the SignatureXL speaker and power cables. This upgraded insulation joins the previous generation's high-performance shielding architecture and proprietary Tuned ARAY conductor geometry.

Chord Company states that the cable's conductors are multi-stranded silver-plated OFC types with XLPE insulation. This is complemented by high-frequency shielding of a high-density silver-plated braid and foil mix.

SignatureX Tuned ARAY cables are terminated using ultra-low-mass RCA connectors (with precision PTFE surrounds). Meanwhile, you also have the option of “high-performance” XLR and DIN, the latter being good news for those owning new Naim Classic components. Finally, Vinylistas are offered a turntable-ready version, as well as tonearm cables in slim or reference versions.

All the contacts are ChorAlloy plated, which is said to improve conductivity and tarnish less over time, while a special zero-compression strain-relief system promises to avoid changes in impedance where the cable is terminated.

applause awards

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.
