”Another class leading speaker cable from Chord Company.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 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.

Silver-plated cable Yes
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chord Speaker cable These are a big improvement over the previous cable. Didn't realise how strangled the sound was until I fitted these cables, much more "air" in the sound now. A very reasonable price for such a large improvement in sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring the detail and bring out the bass. Like others, upgraded from QED 79 strand. System is thus Arcam SA20, Rega Planar 3, an old but functional Sony CDP XB920E and Cambridge Audio Aeromax 2 speakers. Most immediately noticable from wiring it in is a more coherent bass (Donna Summer Greatest Hits) and clarity (early Pet Shop Boys). Prince (Parade) there is definitely more to find in the mix now. Advice is to burn it in for full benefit but no hesitation in recommending on what I've heard so far. Finally a thumbs up to the Reading store for their help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound Fantastic sound, and a huge step up from my previous generic cables. Widening and deepening of soundscape, stronger bass, and more clear highs and mids. Great in-store service and advice. Would thoroughly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chord Rumour X speaker cable Quality cables seem to get thicker and thicker and thus more and more obtrusive the more you pay. But these are very slim and flexible with an open, detailed and transparent sound. Well worth the upgrade from QED anniversary cables.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic cable for both Hi/fi & av home cinema. Bought this cable a few weeks ago, and I am more than happy to review this item. It deals with high end quality audio amps with ease. As well as punching way above standard A/v cables for cinematic experience. Replaced my Q. E. d. Cables for the Chord x, and am more than happy. Happy listening...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audible improvement Needing a long run of flexible cable Richer's Southampton store recommended the Chord Rumour X. The cost was more than I had been looking to pay but having bitten the bullet I'm pleased to say that, initially at least, this cable has made an audible improvement to my listening experience. I attend a lot of small scale live gigs and the Rumour X reveals some of the 'live' nature of recorded music by letting you hear bass strings being plucked and kick pedals being struck. I look forward to rediscovering more of my music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, Shawline X for a lot less! I've had Shawline X as a demo set and after really liking it I did a bit of research. Turns out Rumour X has exactly the same conductors without the shielding! No brainer... Amazing sounding cable
