The first Tuned ARAY cables were developed by Chord using their then flagship Sarum cable range. The Shawline analogue cables use the same Tuned ARAY conductor geometry to produce a ground breaking cable. All Tuned ARAY cables have an extraordinary degree of musical transparency and the Shawline Analogue transforms the performance of the new breed of DACs, CD players and Streamers that deliver so much performance at very affordable prices.
The challenge with producing the Shawline Analogue is that all Tuned ARAY cables require a high degree of precision that can only be achieved with painstaking hand assembly. The Shawline is built from FEP insulated silver-plated conductors and use a composite shielding material that works over a wide bandwidth and also reduces mechanical noise. The cable is assembled within a flexible plastic tube chosen to further reduce mechanical noise and a protective outer braid is fitted.
Shawline Analogue RCA cables are turntable-ready as standard.
RCA plugs are Chord VEE3 and are direct silver-plated to improve signal transfer. The Shawline Analogue can alternatively be terminated with Din plugs and, by adding extra conductors, Chord can produce an outstandingly good Shawline XLR cable. The standard length is 1m and custom lengths are available to order.
