Chord Company Odyssey 2
Suits many systems
The Odyssey 2 lives happily in budget, mid-price and reference systems alike. Whatever system you use Odyssey 2 with, you can be sure that dynamics are carried well and that instruments have a 'weight' and reality to them. Cymbals are noticeably more realistic and acoustic guitars and pianos more lifelike; this ability to carry dynamic information so well means that Odyssey produces a remarkably musical and coherent sound. Good enough in fact to win the Hi-fi News Best Speaker Cable award for five years in a row.
Each set of conductors is made up of 19 strands of silver-plated oxygen free copper surrounded by PTFE insulation. These are heavier conductors than the ones used in the Rumour cable and it's these that give the musicians (vocals, drums, guitars and acoustic instruments) a certain weight and 'rightness' of sound.
Whatever the system and whatever the speakers, Odyssey 2 is a 'must try' speaker cable.
