Chord Company Announces New EpicX ARAY Interconnect Cables 

The latest analog interconnect cables from Chord Company may be just what you need for your audio setup. Check out the details.

Chord Company EpicX Aray Interconnect Cables

Renowned A/V cable maker Chord Company has released a new interconnect line, the EpicX ARAY. Whilst not as affordable as the British manufacturer’s award-winning and affordable Shawline cables, the new EpicX ARAY promise superior performance.

Building on the already popular original Epic analog interconnect product line, the EpicX ARAY represents the next generation and benefits from the latest Chord Company cable technologies.

An upgrade from Chord’s Shawline interconnects, the EpicX ARAY provides heavier-gauge silver-plated conductors with upgraded geometry and increased shielding volume. EpicX ARAY also incorporates Chord Company’s performance-enhancing ARAY mechanical tuning technology, optimizing the potential of the heavy-gauge conductors.

EpicX ARAY’s ‘X’ label refers to the upgrade to XLPE (Cross-linked Polythene) insulation, an enhancement that has been rolling out across a number of Chord Company cables. XLPE complements the high-performance shielding architecture and proprietary ARAY conductor geometry technology central to the EpicX ARAY.

The EpicX ARAY is made in England and is handmade to order. Connectors are available in VEE 3 RCA, XLR, or DIN configurations.

EpicX ARAY’s connector contact areas/pins incorporate Chord’s innovative ChorAlloy™ multi-metal plating system. This supports lower intermodulation, and full solderability, and also includes a tarnish-free finish.

The EpicX Array interconnect cables are designed to be connected in a directional fashion. Arrows on the heat-shrink guide users as to the proper connection direction.
