Product Description

Chord Shawline X speaker cable is based around Chord Rumour (now known as Rumour X) – a favourite for over two decades. To produce Chord Shawline X, Chord took the existing conductor layout, added a specially chosen PVC internal jacket to reduce mechanical noise, before applying the same high density, dual-layer foil and braid shield used on Chord Epic.

Material Upgrade

Previous versions of Shawline/Rumour 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.

Musical Performance

Rumour/Rumour X has been part of Chord's range for so long because of its performance. It’s neutral (ie. not biased towards one particular sound) and capable of carrying high levels of detail and dynamic information. It will carry music in an extremely coherent manner so your music sounds more like it should. This allows you to look further into and get more involved in music, with the added benefit of enhancing the image and depth of the system it’s being used in.

Shawline X takes this as a starting point and refines it. The whole reason for using high-frequency effective shielding is that by reducing interference, the cable is better able to carry the micro-dynamics and timing slurs that musicians use so much to define rhythm and expression. The Shawline also carries the very fine details that reveal more of the timbre of individual instruments.

Optional Termination Service

Shawline X speaker cable is supplied per metre off the reel (bare wire) but we recommend also choosing our optional termination service in which we fit the cable either with standard 4mm plugs and heatshrink or Ohmic plugs (as pictured). To add termination to your order, please click here.
