ChordBurndy cables offer Naim Audio users a new and clear upgrade path for their Burndy-equipped devices. Every cable is handmade to order and uses the optimum signal/shielding system, comprising silver-plated copper conductors, flagship Taylon® proprietary insulation, an acoustic braid, plus an anti-EMF braid, all protected by a black nylon outer jacket.
This project has been a fascinating journey for Chord and particularly useful, as the Chord listening room features a Burndy-equipped Naim NAP 300.
Chord developed several prototypes and immediately achieved individual improvements, but wanted the Burndy cables to transform the system, so employed the best materials and design techniques to create something that would outperform in all areas and across all genres.
Conductor gauge and shielding upgrades gave the biggest improvements. eg. for the Naim 500 series models the copper gauge has been increased to the maximum that the larger pins will allow.
Depending on your equipment combination there can be between seven and nineteen internal cables. The ChordBurndy can be a time and resource-heavy build, but the leap in performance is pretty fundamental and therefore, Chord feel, justifiable. The different custom-built Burndys come in at different price levels depending on complexity and the number of wires needed.
