This is a brand new pair of EPIC XL 1.5m Speaker cables, fully terminated. Our customer changed their order so we have these available at a discounted price.
Epic XL combines elements of the Epic and Signature Reference/XL speaker cables.
A specially chosen soft PVC internal jacket is added to correctly space the shielding and minimise mechanical noise. A high density braid and foil shield is applied to each set of conductors and this is in turn protected by a translucent outer jacket, again chosen to reduce unwanted mechanical noise. Each set of Epic XL is built to order at The Chord Company. The conductors are twisted together and clamped in place before being terminated with either banana or spade connectors. By separately shielding the positive and negative conductors of each speaker cable run, they sound markedly more refined and musically coherent.
Epic XL takes a crucial step forwards in performance by using separate shields for each conductor. That means neutrality, less noise, a bigger and more immersive soundstage and most of all, it means getting new joy from your existing music collection.
Epic XL (or rather its predecessor Epic Reference) used PTFE insulation and until the arrival of Taylon®, was Chords “go to” material. Although expensive, it offered the best performance.
Material technology is constantly developing and improving and alternatives to PTFE are now available. While the high cost of Taylon® prevents Chord from using this in our Epic range, Chord were able to find a version of XLPE (Cross-linked Polyethylene) that following extensive listening tests, proved clearly better than PTFE.
Every set of Epic XL speaker cable is built to order and terminated at the UK factory with ChordOhmic 4mm banana plugs or ChordOhmic spade connectors
