Chord Indigo Plus XLR interlink vanaf 1,0m Per paar
Chord Indigo Plus, 2 XLR to 2 XLR Audio Cable
Chord Indigo is Chord's most advanced cable design to date, designed to bring out the very best from today’s CD, DVD and SACD players and in response to the extended bandwidth speaker systems that are now available. The Indigo cable is produced to a very high tolerance and the design chosen for its extremely accurate analogue signal transmission. The signal and return conductors are constructed from multi-stranded silver plated oxygen free copper. These are surrounded by a Teflon™ dielectric and this is surrounded by a fully floating triple layer shielding system which is effective to extremely high frequencies. The Indigo will bring a new level of performance to any decent hi-fi or home cinema system and is available fitted with Din and XLR plugs.
What is it?
The most striking feature of the new Chord Indigo XLR is the unique machined acrylic plug casing. More than just a beautiful object, the plug casing is made from specially chosen acrylic plastic that has truly outstanding vibration damping properties. Precision machined to an exacting tolerance from bonded solid acrylic block and diamond polished, the plug casing shrouds an ultra low mass, silver-plated earth connection and is toleranced to damp any resonances.
This is an area that has been important to Chord for some time but the tonal and timing improvements that this has brought about surprised even us. The plug has a tapered strain relief profile which allows us to avoid any direct clamping pressure on the cable itself, crucial to obtaining the best possible performance.
The cable has been produced to an extremely high tolerance and optimised for analogue signal transmission. A low capacitance, high velocity design with extremely low high-frequency attenuation making it ideal for accurate wide bandwidth signal transfer. The shielding system is similar to the Signature but all components have been silver-plated. The central conductor is comprised of specially chosen, stranded, silver-plated oxygen-free copper conductors and is surrounded by a Teflon dielectric.
The Indigo cable is a fully balanced configuration and has been assembled in a way that optimises send/return signal transfer. It is constructed using a direct connected return and signal path. All signal path components are silver-plated and all the connections have been made with a high silver content, lead-free solder. Because of the plug, the impedance is completely stable along the length of the cable. The shield, which has been based on the ones used in Signature interconnects and speaker cable, has been left fully floating.
The Indigo XLR is Chord's most advanced interconnect yet. The cable was designed in response to the extended bandwidth speakers that are becoming so common and its ability to transfer a signal completely accurately is going to surprise a lot of people.
Indigo can be terminated with XLR plugs, Din plugs and 3 pin XLR connectors. The XLR variation requires the addition of extra lengths of cable in order to produce the best performance and consequently is more expensive.
The Indigo was designed and built for use with all high-end sources and is a particularly good choice for high-end SACD and DVD audio players, where its ability to carry extended frequency audio signals extremely accurately makes it an almost vital part of a system. That said, the vanishingly low noise floor makes the Indigo a perfect cable for use with both CD and high quality phono stages.
How does it sound?
The effectiveness of the shielding system, in combination with the vibration damping abilities of the acrylic plug surround, allow Chord to produce a cable with new levels of transparency. Indigo will accurately transmit the tiny dynamic shifts that are so crucial to the understanding and involvement with any piece of music. Simply the best audio interconnect that we can produce!
