Product Description

The differences between the original version of Sarum and the Chord Sarum Super Tuned Aray Digital Cable versions is pretty profound; it wasn’t just more detail or better dynamics and separation, it wasn’t just a better sense of space and separation, or a far better image and depth.

What made it so compelling was the huge step forward in musical coherence and with that, the sudden ease of emotional involvement with whatever music you listened to. Truly a music lover’s cable.

Improvements

The improvements that Super ARAY technology bring over Tuned ARAY are of about the same magnitude; pretty profound and that sense of increased musical involvement is illustrated perfectly by the Sarum Tuned ARAY digital cables.

Everyone who’s heard the Sarum Super ARAY digital says the same thing “The system sounds so much more musical”. That’s probably the best way of describing the improvements that the new Sarum Super ARAY digital cable brings. It makes it so much easier to appreciate and get involved in the performance rather than the recording.

Compelling Sound

What makes the Super ARAY cables so important is their ability to completely transform the performance of the equipment they are used with, and in a way that you instantly know is right. That ability to let you hear the real performance of your system can border on the spectacular.

That makes a compelling case for listening to the Sarum Super ARAY cables in your system and with your choice of music. For a music lover they might be the best purchase you make.

Structure

Like other Sarum conductors, the internal cables are coaxial in design but the actual structure makes it unique. There is a single central conductor which is micro polished prior to being silver-plated.

This is insulated with an air spaced PTFE wrap and then shielded with a unique heavy gauge silver-plated wire helix configuration, producing an unusually dense shield that protects the signal conductors from not just electrical interference, but also provides a very high degree of mechanical insulation as well.

The outer jacket is extruded PTFE and like other Chord digital cables, the construction is unusual in that separate signal and return conductors are used. Most digital cables use a single run of coaxial cable with the return being made by the shield. The Sarum Super ARAY digital uses two runs of cable, one carrying the signal and the other the return.

PTFE RCA plugs

RCA plugs have quite a big influence on the ultimate performance of any RCA terminated cable, particularly in the case of digital cables. RCA sockets and plugs are not always the most ideal when it comes to digital cables so BNC plugs can be a far better option if you have the choice. The new PTFE plug surround is particularly good when used with digital cables, as was the acrylic plug surround used on the Tuned ARAY. 

Super ARAY

We’ve said this before, but the only way to understand just how profound the improvements that Super ARAY technology are and just how much influence cables can really have on the performance of your system is to listen. If a DAC forms an important part of your system, talk to a Sarum retailer and try the Sarum Super ARAY digital cable at home. Digital cables do make a difference and the best way to find out is to listen.

Custom Options

The Sarum Super ARAY digital is available terminated with either PTFE surround RAC plugs or high performance silver-plated BNC plugs. Please do not be tempted to use any form of BNC/RCA adaptor - they have a marked effect on performance. Sarum Super ARAY digital is available in 1 metre lengths. Custom lengths are available to order.

NB: If you already own a Sarum Tuned ARAY digital, it can be returned to Chord and upgraded to full Super ARAY specification. Please speak to your retailer or distributor for more information.
