Award-winner made better
Over the past half-decade, the Clearway has won countless awards for its class-leading performance. The latest ‘X’ version uses high performance XLPE (Cross Linked Polyethylene) insulation. This replaces the previous PVC and is as fitted to Chord Company’s high-end cables. XLPE outperforms other materials in Chord’s listening tests and offers superior insulation for reduced interference – giving a smoother, more natural sound with enhanced detail.
With nearly years of experience in cable manufacturing, Chord's expertise has produced an award-winning cable. Designed for the most transparent sound possible, the Chord ClearwayX lets you listen to the music exactly as the artist intended. Ideally suited to higher quality Hi-Fi and AV systems, the ClearwayX cable simply tells it how it is.
High quality shielding
One of the reasons for the ClearwayX's exceptionally transparent sound quality is the high quality shielding. Shielding a cable brings out subtle nuances in the music, making it come to ‘life’. Featuring dual density foils, combined with a twisted-pair configuration, makes for a level of shielding that is effective to high frequencies. A protective PVC jacket is also applied, which again serves to further reduce any mechanically induced noise.
Bring the ‘X’ factor to your music, with the Chord Company ClearwayX.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris Lee from Improved sound quality Bought new speaker cable from Richer Sounds as the originals were left behind in a house move. Decided to upgrade the cable and bought the recommended cable for my system, I'm really pleased that I need this as I can hear the difference. Profession staff who know what they are taking about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by S0da_p0ppin from Great cable!! I don’t believe in expensive cables or particularly like the idea of using bog standard materials. The hifi works is so full of over the top marketing it’s hard to believe every bit of information out there, so I like to go for best of both worlds. Not too cheap neither excessively expensive, but just right as budget allows. I custom prepared this cable with my own terminations which turned out to save me a lot of money instead of buying pre terminated. Of course cables don’t really bring much in a sound quality, that’s up to your speakers, but what they will do it let more detail pass than a cheaper cable would allow so as to not miss any details within the music. On especially revealing systems, cables may very well start to make a difference. This cable provides me long term use for future upgrades in my system when a more revealing sound will be heard and then these cables will probably shine their best when upgrades are present at either end of the cable wether it be amp side or speaker side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KabulaBonga from Sweet cable, can't be beat for the price! I've never really gone for proper high end speaker cable before, and as I've been upgrading the components of my system is was about time. I thought about going all out for something 5 times the price but then decided that was crazy and went for this cable, and it has not let me down. Crystal clear sound (I think!) And looks cool!

Rated 3 out of 5 by DVainex from Disappointing I bought this to go with my Cambridge Audio CX81 and Q Acoustics 3050i speakers. I bought a unterminated length at £15 per meter. The is a thick heavy cable and quite difficult to prepare even with wire strippers. The CXA81 doesn’t make connections with bare wire easy and the weight of the cable didn’t help. I was impressed at first having nothing to compare. However I found the system exhibited a rather sharp treble at times and sometimes a nasal sound to vocals. Also the system quickly sounded thin and stressed when to volume went up. At the time of purchasing Clearway X I didn’t know Q Acoustics recommended the QED XT40i speaker cables for my speakers. I decided to replace the cable and went for QED XT40i terminated with Gold Banana plugs. This cable is only £11 per meter and cost me £100 for two lengths fully terminated. The best price I can find for the same in Clearway X is £153. The weak link in my system has now gone, the XT40i sounds much richer and three dimensional.
