C-Line RCA Pair

£40£100

The entry level interconnect in Chord’s line-up, C-Line is an excellent, affordable and cable, demonstrably better than most budget cables or those included as standard by manufacturers. Too good to be labelled “entry level”. Proves the point that cables make a difference.

The Chord C-line is designed to work with all line level components, CD players, streaming devices, DVD players, home theatre amplifiers, tuners, phono stages and pre to power amplifier connections and would be our go-to minimum for the likes of Planar 1 and 2, io, Sonos Amp, etc.

An original Chord Company design, specifying a high performance cable at an affordable price that still adheres to Chord’s exacting standards. What Hi-Fi? Award-winner 2015-2020, so it looks like they succeeded!

The ARAY conductor geometry was developed from the Tuned ARAY conductor configuration first used on the then flagship Chord Sarum cable range. The over-moulded RCA plug uses the same signal enhancing direct gold-plating process that used on Chord VEE3 RCA plugs.

The most important reason for developing this cable comes down to just how affordable good quality digital players and turntables have become. Chord needed a cable to match that performance. Producing genuinely high-performance cables that carry a musical signal with a real sense of coherence is a big challenge and Chord is justifiably proud of it’s award winning C-Line interconnects.

ARAY conductor geometry, multi-strand oxygen free copper signal and return conductors. High density overwrapped foil shielding, reduces signal loss caused by high frequency interference. Unique RCA plug gold-plating process improves signal transfer across audio frequencies. Over moulded plug surround provides high reliability connection.

The Chord C-line is designed to work with all line level components, CD players, streaming devices, DVD players, home theatre amplifiers, tuners, phono stages and pre to power amplifier connections. This cable can also be used with RCA equipped turntables.

To obtain the best results from this cable, Chord recommend you follow these simple instructions :

  • Switch off all equipment before fitting or removing cables.
  • Connect the cable so that the arrow on the cable points away from the source component i.e. the direction of the music.
  • The “C” of Chord should be nearest the source.
  • Avoid touching the contact areas of the plugs. Route the cable away from speaker cables and power cables.
