The Chord Company has launched Sarum T, a cable range that builds on the Sarum Super ARAY range and introduces Chord’s proprietary insulation material, Taylon. To date, Taylon has been exclusive to the flagship ChordMusic cables, but now Sarum T brings the benefits of this dielectric to a more accessible price level. Previous generations of Sarum Super ARAY cables have featured a PTFE dielectric. The upgrade to Taylon introduces a “raft of performance benefits”.

Taylon is “a revolutionary insulation material” unique to The Chord Company. It originates from the most demanding military applications where highly advanced communication cables must offer predictable performance, regardless of environmental conditions. Taylon is phase-stable at typical room temperatures and its implementation within audio cables preserves the critical timing information within music. Taylon is the best-performing dielectric The Chord Company has used in over 32 years of UK design and manufacturing. It is the most neutral and phase-stable insulation material available and remains the biggest step forward in insulation performance since the introduction of PTFE.

Sarum T also benefits from The Chord Company’s Super ARAY mechanical optimisation, factory terminations and hand-made construction. Existing Sarum customers can upgrade to the new Sarum T standard with a factory rebuild service, costing around 40 per cent of Sarum T’s sale price (excludes speaker cables). Custom lengths can be made to order.
