Tuned ARAY for all
Wednesday, November 27, 2013

The Chord Company has applied its proprietary Tuned ARAY technology into its standard digital cable range. Tuned ARAY was originally developed for the flagship Sarum cable range, and has now been implemented in the company’s standard digital cable range, “bringing all the benefits of Chord’s flagship construction techniques to a new lower range of price points”. Following the introduction in October of two Tuned ARAY Ethernet cables the company has further extended the implementation of its cable-tuning technology into its digital portfolio with three new cables joining the Tuned ARAY family: Anthem Digital Tuned ARAY; Signature Digital Tuned ARAY and Chord Indigo Digital Tuned ARAY.
Tuned ARAY is Chord Co’s proprietary cable-tuning construction technology. It was pioneered as a way of finessing the advanced materials and construction techniques already present in its products, to extract the very best sound quality from its hand-made audio cables. “Tuned ARAY brings a sense of rhythm and timing that turns a good hi-fi system into an extraordinary one, playing music with a level of involvement and detail that brings it to life and turns everything into a genuine performance.” For once I agree, Ed.
