Chord Epic speaker cable is the result of a happy marriage between two of their award winning speaker cables.
Epic uses the same conductors as Chord Odyssey, and the shielding, visible through its translucent jacket is taken from their Signature speaker cable.
The shielding brings big improvements right across the frequency range. There is space around individual instruments and the timbre of instruments is easy to hear. Violins, cellos and violas sound more realistic, likewise pianos, bass notes have great definition and rhythms are easy to follow and get involved with.
Fitting properly effective shields to speaker cable is a pretty big deal and fitting shielded speaker cable to your system can border on astonishing.
The reduction and the level of perceived noise means that very fine dynamic and tonal information is easily heard, and brings improvements not only to the high frequency performance of a system, but also the bass and mid frequencies.
The space around notes and the extra harmonic content that Epic can bring to a system is really surprising.
The complex harmonic information that makes up the timbre of stringed and bowed instruments is carried extremely accurately.
Epic could bring some serious improvements to the sound quality of your system, and it’s a big step toward making a real connection with your music.
