Product Description

Chord Odyssey X uses the same materials as Rumour X. Odyssey’s heavier gauge conductors bring so much more detail and dynamics to a system, along with a degree of control and definition that can transform the performance of both floor and stand mounted loudspeakers.

Odyssey Legacy

Odyssey was launched in 1998 and set a new standard of performance. It’s neutrality, its compatibility and consistency of performance from system to system made it very rapidly our most popular speaker cable. Hi-Fi News magazine liked Chord Odyssey so much because of its performance and price that it won the best speaker cable award for five years in a row.

Over the years, changes have been cosmetic only. The current version has a white PVC outer jacket with a diameter of 8mm, still discrete in speaker cable terms and still good enough to let even the biggest of systems sing like they should.

Material Upgrade

Previous versions of Odyssey speaker cables used PTFE insulation (Teflon) and until the arrival of Taylon, this was Chord's “go to” material. Although expensive, PTFE offered the best performance. Material technology is constantly developing and improving and alternatives to PTFE are now available.

While the high cost of Taylon prevents it use in all ranges, a suitable replacement was discovered among the family of insulation materials known as XLPE (Cross-linked Polyethylene). One particular version stood out and following listening tests, proved to be clearly (sonically) better than the PTFE in Shawline/Rumour speaker cables.

Optional Termination Service

Odyssey X speaker cable is supplied off the reel per metre (bare wire). We also offer an optional termination service in which we fit the speaker cable with 4mm banana plugs and heatshrink. To read more about this option and add it to your order, please click here.

Press Reviews

  • Keeping it real, this affordable speaker cable just keeps going and going, able to show vivid tonal colours, good leading edge clarity and the clear natural decay of notes (Hi-Fi News magazine)
