”Another class-leading speaker cable from Chord Company”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2021 award-winner.

More than just another Rumour

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.

Quality, silver-plated construction
Two sets of silver-plated conductors are insulated with XLPE and arranged in a twist configuration. The XLPE insulated conductors are held in place by a vibration damping outer jacket. Using silver-plated copper gives the sound a more musical balance and, combined with the XLPE insulation, a more lifelike presentation.

High-end performance from an unobtrusive cable
Rumour X produces excellent definition right through the frequency range, outstanding dynamics and, once run in, an outstandingly neutral tonal quality. This is a cable that performs like a high-end speaker cable yet has a diameter of only 5 mm - making Rumour X the ideal choice for extracting genuine performance from a highly discreet cable.

Hear the difference, with the Chord Company Rumour X.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Open , detailed ,lovely wide soundstage I wanted to maximise the quality of my system and figured a cost effective upgrade on speaker cable would be a good place to start , I went from QED silver anniversary to rumour x and the difference was immediately pleasing . My Dali Opticon 6 sound better than before , more detail , wider soundstage and instrument separation is more prominent . I’m pleased with my purchase and the staff at Chelsea fitted Cambridge audio banana plugs for me , they were very helpful and knowledgeable .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Focal Atmos I already owned the amazing Focal surround speaker system connected to my AV amp, but as they were many years old I decided to upgrade to the latest ATMOS version. Richer sounds as always were amazing with their support and talked me through the setup. The sound from these small but very convienent speakers is to die for. Richer sounds also honoured the only price despite the price increase. Thank you. I cannot recommend these speakers any higher for the price. Thank you again for your support guys.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Underwhelming so far After upgrading my AV receiver i was looking to move my bi wired Tannoy speakers to single cable and opted for the Chord Rumour X with the Ohmic plugs. Not the dearest in the Chord line up but not the cheapest either at £165 for 5 metres and 3 sets of plugs. Initial reaction is underwhelmed. i know I have a new receiver and the move from bi wired to single wired but have lost so much of what I loved about my Tannoy 633's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality cable, easy enough to add terminals Definitely a noticeable upgrade from the ancient copper wire speaker cable I was using up until now. Easy enough to cut, strip and attach banana plugs too. I also opted to add trousers and heat wrap for extra security and avoidance of amp shorting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better sound Having rearranged our speakers the original bi-wire speaker cable was to short. It appears bi-wire cable is not that easy to get hold of. Advised to try the Chord 2-wire cable and the sound quality is much better. Thanks to the advice of the knowledgeable staff it was a very good purchase.
