Chord XLPE insulation on a budget
Tuesday, November 17, 2020

Chord Company is bringing its XLPE insulation technology to hi-fi on a budget, with the launch of C-screenX, the British cable specialist’s latest loudspeaker product to benefit from the new dielectric. C-screenX is a £7.50 per metre loudspeaker cable that’s 9 mm in diameter and fully shielded, its narrow profile means it can be easily hidden around room edges or buried away in custom installations. C-screenX is flexible enough to route around corners with ease and its white outer jacket (which protects the shielding), also makes it virtually invisible against white skirting boards.  

Featuring multi-stranded oxygen-free copper conductors and insulated with Chord Company’s new XLPE (Cross Linked Polythene), C-screenX is arranged in a twisted-pair configuration to reduce interference and then enclosed in a PVC casing which reduces mechanical noise and spaces the conductors correctly.  

C-screenX forms part of Chord Company’s entry-level C-series, which also offers analogue and digital interconnects, including USB, streaming and HDMI cables. Prices start at £40 for the C-line RCA.
