Product Description

Chord Clearway cable consolidates 30yrs R&D and cable manufacturing into a new ground-breaking, and very affordable speaker cable. This speaker cable replaces Chord's multi award winning "Silver Screen", a hard act to follow as it was a fantastic speaker cable, but Chord have managed to improve on that cable considerably on what we can now consider their best budget speaker cable yet.

Optional Termination Service

Supplied as standard per metre (bare wire, off the reel). We can also offer a termination service to fit this cable with 4mm banana plugs and heatshrinks as pictured. To add this service to your order, please click here.

Noise Reducing Engineering and Design

The shielding for the Chord Clearway cable is two contra-wound high-density foil shields. Similar to other Chord speaker cables, the twin foil construction with a twisted-pair configuration, results in a high level of shielding, protecting the high frequency components as they travel its length. To finish the cable it has a clear protective jacket (PVC) placed over it, which gives additional protection from any potential mechanically induced noise.

High-frequency shielding

Similar to the award-winning Carnival Silver Screen, the Clearway cable uses high performance shielding, that is crafted from two contra-wound high-density foil shields. Similar to other Chord speaker cables, the twin high density foils, when put together in the twisted-pair configuration, results in a level of shielding that is highly effective to protect high frequency components in a signal. Finally, a clear protective PVC jacket is applied, which again serves to further reduce any mechanically induced noise.

PTFE insulation Material

To create the new Clearway cable, Chord undertook R&D into the behavioural characteristics of various conductors, and different dielectrics (insulation). The Chord Company understands the importance of the relation between conductor material and its insulation, here they have employed silver-plated cables with the PTFE material as an insulator.

The insulation material is not related to a cables ability to accurately transmit signals, but rather it affects overall timbre that the cable brings to your Hi-Fi. The cables insulation effects, normally takes the form of artificially amplifying bass component frequencies, which will significantly affect a system’s ability to reproduce music with coherence and involvement.

Oxygen Free Copper

In general speaker cables that have oxygen-free copper as the conductive material will have either PVC or polyethylene as the insulating material. What distinguishes Chord Company’s Clearway cable from other cables is that it has been constructed with FEP: a type of PTFE with very similar acoustic characteristics. Compared to polyethylene, FEP-insulation on the Clearway ensures detail and dynamic information is transmitted more accurately. The spectral effects of the cable are also considerably more neutral than other similar cables.

FEP-insulated Conductors

The conductors are FEP-insulated and are constructed from multi-strand oxygen-free copper, which are placed in a twisted-pair configuration that reduces interference. The two conductors are also protected by an extra layer of soft PVC, which is preferred over polyethylene due to its flexibility.  Plus Chord have used the layer of PVC to facilitate the correct spacing of the shielding relative to the conductors, to consequently minimise any potential for mechanically induced noise.

Press Reviews

  • 'Best speaker cable' (What Hi-Fi Awards 2017)

  • 'Best speaker cable 2016... Chord hasn’t created a speaker cable that’ll make your system sound its cleanest or most detailed, but an understanding of what makes music enjoyable means the positives far outweigh that. For; Helps tie instruments together, aids dynamics and musicality.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine October 2015)

  • 'That foil beneath its transparent PVC jacket acts as a shield, which Chord says is particularly effective at blocking harmful high-frequency interference. What it’s protecting is a pair of stranded copper wires, twisted together. And the effect upon our reference system makes for very interesting listening indeed.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine October 2015)

  • 'Listening on, however, we find the Clearway helps the system better stitch the instruments together; it’s more rhythmic, more dynamic, more musical.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine October 2015)

  • 'Often, we’d tend to say cleaner amounts to better. Detail, space, frequency range; those things matter, and if the Clearway were lacking in those respects it wouldn’t be given five stars. But what matters more is the knitting together and musicality, and that’s where Chord has this right for the price.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine October 2015)
