”Another class-leading speaker cable from Chord Company”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent choice I’m still running in the cable but is already sounding better than my old Chord one. Definitely better with more depth and clarity at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much Richer Sound! My review is a bit late as we have had our lounge redecorated (so had to unplug my Hi- Fi system), but could not have believed the improvement in sound by fitting Chord Rumour X speaker cables! (after my 30 year- old 79 strand ones). Quick description - clarity, depth and separation - even to hearing the spacial position of instruments heard. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sceptisism unmasked I have always been sceptical about claims that expensive speaker cables would improve the sound but decided to give it a try. At £18 a metre this stuff is up there but does it make a difference? Well yes it does but that is just my opinion. If you are thinking of upgrading your system then why not try upgrading the speaker wires as it might save you a lot of money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great upgrade whilst this probably cost ten times more than the original cable, I would say that even for the short lenght required(for my centre speaker) it has,to my ears, improved the sounquality. For a small outlay , well worth it! bought online, speedy and efficient service/communications .Thanks guys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference! I recently bought a Cambridge Audio CXN V2 network streamer (excellent) from Richer Sounds. I had to go back and collect a USB cable I had ordered and decided I would also upgrade my speaker cable. I'm really glad I did! After some discussion I decided to go for the Rumour X cable. It wasn't cheap and I was a bit hesitant splashing out for 4 metres of it but the sonic improvement was quite marked even with a 66 year old pair of ears. Everything seemed clearer and I could hear details I hadn't heard before. My system is only mid range ( Marantz PM6003 amp, Marantz CD6004 CD player and Monitor Audio Silver speakers) but it now sounds great. Go on, treat your ears!
