he Chord Epic Reference is a superbly neutral speaker cable, based on the popular Epic Super Twin, with hints of the high-end Sarum cable. Chord Epic Reference speaker cable develops the shielded conductor design used on Epic by applying a separate high frequency effective shield to each conductor.
The 12 AWG silver-plated conductors are insulated with PTFE, before a PVC jacket is applied to correctly space the dual layer foil and braid shield. In terms of performance, Epic makes a very good case for the use of shielded speaker cables. Epic Reference moves the performance (and the design) quite a bit closer to Chord’s original award winning shielded speaker cable, Chord Signature.
Epic Reference carries dynamic information and detail in a very coherent manner. This makes for extremely realistic sounding music, acoustic and electric instruments sound really lifelike, and the complexity of tone that makes great instruments such a joy to listen to is easy to hear. More though, is the way that Epic Reference helps a system to sound coherent and musical, and that’s a compelling reason that makes Epic Reference a cable worth listening to in any decent system.
