The Chord Company has launched Clearway, a low-cost speaker cable that replaces the Carnival SilverScreen.
It borrows key ideas from recent development projects and uses FEP: a derivative of PTFE with very similar performance characteristics. The FEP-insulated conductors are built from multi-strand oxygen-free copper and are arranged in a twisted-pair configuration to reduce interference. The two conductors are then protected with a layer of soft PVC (which was chosen over polyethylene because of its flexibility), in order to correctly space the shielding in relation to the conductors and to minimise any mechanically induced noise.
Chord Clearway speaker cable features two contra-wound high-density foil shields. Finally, a clear protective PVC jacket is applied.
Price is £10 per metre, unterminated with various factory termination options.
