Chord Shawline: a new range of cables

12th August 2016

The Shawline range comprises digital, analogue and loudspeaker cables and features the company’s proprietary Tuned ARAY technology at a new low price of £200. The line-up sits above the entry-level C-series and the Clearway range.

Fitted with silver-plated Chord VEE 3 RCA plugs with PTFE insulation, Shawline’s interconnect conductors are built from silver-plated multi-strand oxygen-free copper, insulated with PTFE. Its shielding is designed to work across a wide frequency range and reduce mechanical noise.

The conductors are contained within a specifically chosen outer jacket to ensure flexibility and to further reduce mechanical noise.

The Shawline Digital uses proprietary ARAY conductor geometry developed for digital cables. Also fitted with silver-plated Chord VEE 3 RCA plugs with PTFE insulation (or silver-plated BNC connectors), the new design features a tri-conductor configuration, optimised for digital signal transmission.


Further features include silver-plated, PTFE-insulated conductors with an internal PVC jacket and high- density braid and foil combination shield.

Completing the range is the shielded loudspeaker cable. The Shawline loudspeaker cable is a new design featuring silver-plated conductors and high-frequency-effective shielding. Sixteen AWG multi-strand silver-plated conductors with PTFE insulation are employed in a twisted-pair configuration, with a PVC internal jacket.

Shawline loudspeaker cable is available off-the-reel and in factory-terminated lengths, the latter fitted with Chord Company gold-plated banana plugs.

Prices? Analogue RCA 1m, £200 with additional metres at £80. Digital RCA 1m, £200 with additional metres at £80. Speaker £30p/m unterminated, factory Banana/Spade terminations 8 plugs one pair £100.
