”The biggest compliment I can pay them is that they simply get out of the way and let the music come through.” ’Hi-Fi World’ – Outstanding.

Award-winning Shawline – made better

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
Silver-plated conductors are insulated with XLPE and arranged in a twist pair 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.

Detailed sound
With highly effective shielding, the Shawline X is able to accurately relay micro-dynamics and the most subtle aspects of music. The Shawline X effortlessly carries the finest musical timbre, making every detail sound cleanly etched.

Hear the true potential of your system, with the Chord Shawline X.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb speaker cables from excellent dealership. I was recommended this store by my son in law after he had returned home with a new TV. His wife; our daughter, was gob smacked that he’d impulse bought a TV. However the help given was recommended to me and struck a chord. I had driven from Vale of Belvoir to York for some planned cable ShawlineX from my now former favourite specialist. The customer service was conspicuous by its absence given that I am in market for a replacement CD player, integrated amp and and phono stage from Musical Fidelity and, hopefully a Michell Gyrodec turntable. So I decided to drive back to Nottingham and visit Richer Sounds. The help given was great Yes I knew what I wanted and bought rather than was sold, but the process was as I’d expect. The price was what it was so to speak I have “burned in” my existing system: Cable and upgrade from Rumour GS10 speakers A1 amp LPT deck Arcam CD player Really has given an uplift to the overall sound quality; crisper cleaner with improved sound staging. A bit more “zooshing” as it were.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No trousers!! I bought some shawlineX cable from richer sounds this month, £30 per meter , so pretty expensive , great bit of wire, but was dismayed when I opened the box! Yes there was the chord , and banana plugs, but like you see in the picture, if u can see it, their finished off with some, what they call trousers, which made them all look neat. So yes it is good cable, but be aware they have to charge more for trousers, so I found out later! No one told me they were an extra. + One more gripe, I asked specifically for banana plugs on one end of each line of cable and the other end bare wire, but no luck, both had been plugged , so I was trying to phone up and ask about it, then just suggested to them that I would keep the wire strip the end and bring it in at a later date to get problem fixed. They said sorry, but at £314, u would expect better.? If they want me to be a life long customer or whatever their spiel is, they must try harder, I think, honestly. Anyway, not too bad appart from that. I just hope when I do go in to fix said problem, there should be no problem, we will see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a convert! About 30 years ago, following the advice of certain "Golden-ears" of the time, I replaced my QED 79 strand speaker cable with twin and earth mains wire. It was such a revelation that I've stuck with it ever since, through some significant upgrades. However, following the recent (Lockdown) purchase of an Audiolab 6000CDT and a Quad Vena ii Play to feed my Quad 306 and ancient B & W DM110's, I wondered if it wasn't time to change the speaker cable. This was on the principle that you try to move any acoustic bottlenecks gradually away from the source. RIRO! Chord's ShawlineX was highly reviewed, and since I have very short cable-runs (1m each side), I took the plunge. Heigh-ho, what's sixty quid! Boy am I glad I did. All the old cliches about Taut Bass, Soundstage, Lucid treble, Midrange Clarity and Separation..... it was all there in bucketloads, along with some pleasing little details I'd simply never heard before. The best value upgrade I've ever made. Only trouble is, I HAVE to try out some new speakers now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, superb quality Very happy with the quality of these cables. They were supplied with jackets and connectors. They sound just as good as cables twice the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It made a huge difference I, like many others before me, found it hard to buy in to the cable making a difference. I had QED micro wire running to some KEFF LS50 Metas, took the plunge to buy this cable and couldn’t believe the difference it made. They sound so much fuller, more detail and the quality difference is so noticeable. So, now I’m a convert. So glad I purchased the cable. Plus Shaun at Richer Sounds Bromley terminated them for me, and did a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enhances all round performance! I purchased the Chord Company Shawline X speaker cable with the Chord Company Ohmic Banana Plugs. Partnered with the Ohmic banana plugs, the Shawline X cable has greatly improved the sound quality of my already fantastic system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service from RS I'm not an expert on cables so can't vouch for their quality against the competition - but they feel really well made. Delivered quickly and well packaged.
