Designed to get the very best from top quality systems, the Chord Company EpicX delivers musical detail and control to the highest standards.

The X factor
Replacing the PTFE insulation with high performance XLPE (Cross Linked Polyethylene) improves the performance of this already impressive cable. As used in their high-end Signature XL cable, XLPE outperformed PTFE in listening tests. Superior insulation reduces interference, giving a smoother, more natural sound with enhanced detail.

OdysseyX taken to the next level
Chord EpicX uses the same conductors as Chord OdysseyX but with a high frequency combination shield and translucent jacket. The shielding brings significant improvements right across the frequency range. There is 'space' around individual instruments and the timbre of instruments is 'true to life'. Strings sound more realistic; likewise, pianos have great definition and an easy to follow rhythm.

The shielding difference
Fitting effective shielding to speaker cable can make a noticeable difference. The reduction in background noise means that very fine tonal information is easily heard. This brings improvements not only to the high frequency performance of a system, but also the bass and mid frequencies.

Overview
Silver-plated cable
Yes
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great improvement I had previously been sceptical about cable upgrades but felt it worth a go in this case as I had set things up with the need for long speaker cables (10m), hence the need for good ones. My temporary setup had used rather cheap cables, so this was a significant jump. I looked at other less expensive options but decided to take the plunge. These are really excellent quality and with the factory fitted plugs. The sound has improved very noticeably indeed. I have a CA851N connected to a CA651W and MA Platinum 100 speakers. I changed the interconnect from streamer to amp first (see separate review) and then a couple of weeks later did the speaker cables. The sound improvement was very obviously in two steps and the final result is better than I had imagined. The complete sound is just more refined and sweet and a pleasure to listen to. I recommend looking at cable upgrades as a possible alternative to just changing the electronics. These were expensive but I will be listening to them every day for years.
