The Chord Chorus Reference DIN to XLR Interconnects for Naim NAP300 or NAP500 is a new cable influenced by the ARAY technology developed for the flagship Sarum Tuned ARAY cables. With silver-plated oxygen free copper conductors and PTFE insulation, the tri-conductor configuration is organised in a repeating spiral and over-extruded with a soft PVC for mechanical damping. The shield is a high frequency effective 95% coverage woven braid that combines with a heavy gauge foil, over-wrapped to give ultimate protection across a wide frequency range. The shields are protected with PVC to provide further mechanical damping.
The Chorus Reference is fitted with Chord’s custom VEE 3 RCA plugs. The ABS outer shell and distinctive silver-plating process applied to the contact areas enhances the signal transfer across a broad frequency range. The signal return surround provides a secure high pressure contact with all types of RCA sockets and the centre pin is insulated with PTFE while the design of the plug and ABS outer shell provides good strain relief without compressing the cable and compromising performance.
The Chorus RCA/DIN cable is terminated as standard with a 5 pin PREH DIN, the standard fitting for current Naim Audio equipment such as the NAP300 and NAP500. We can also supply the Crimson VEE 3 with standard latching DINs and 4 pin DINs. The Cobra VEE3 is available in the following configurations:
5 Pin Din to 2RCA (Naim and Quad)
2 RCA to 5 Pin DIN (Naim and Quad)
5 Pin DIN to 5 Pin DIN (Naim and Quad)
4 PIN to 2RCA (Naim and Quad)
2 RCA to 4 Pin DIN (Naim and Quad)
4 Pin DIN to 4 Pin DIN (Naim and Quad)
Chorus Reference adapts the ARAY conductor configuration used in the Chord Sarum Tuned ARAY cables, producing a highly accurate signal transfer especially in terms of detail, dynamics and timing for extremely coherent and immersive music. This conductor configuration also enhances definition, space and produces a sound stage making it easy to locate individual instruments.
The Chorus Reference DIN cable is particularly good for connecting high performance sources to pre-amplifiers and amplifiers like the NAP300 and NAP500. It also makes the cable a smart choice for an upgrade connection between pre-amplifiers and power amplifiers. The extra resolution and detail it brings are impressive, as are the improvements to dynamics. The Chorus Reference DIN also produces a particularly strong and stable image as well.
