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 jimpaul 12 from Quality cable . As of writing this review i am still 'running - in' the said cable , but i did notice a difference from my previous one which was again a good quality choice . I have got my first 'separates' system recently and wanted something that was going to deliver the goods so to speak and i must say this does the job ! , the 4 five star reviews were on the mark .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ghinzani from Just in for some consumables. Only wanted some speaker wire and connectors, went in and described my system and budget and got some very good advice, spent to the top of what I wanted to pay but was able to go up to a level above, such is Richers depth of products. Great staff as always, so many lovely toys to look at too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Binksy from Great Improvement I noticed some oxidisation on my old exposure speaker cables, so time to replace them. Richer Sounds in Bournemouth were very helpful. New Rumour X cables cut, banana plugs (all done in store) and I'm pleased to say have really opened up the sound of my Dali Oberon speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vys70 from From cynic to jaw drop I was basically using doorbell wire with Pro Ac speakers and a Naim amp. I asked what speaker cable Richer Sounds recommended and went with that. Well, my jaw dropped when I powered up my system. The imaging improved dramatically, with vocals placed rock solid at the centre of the sound stage. I was a bit of a cynic and while I knew I had to get new cable didn’t believe it could make such a difference.
