Chord Company



The Chord Company Bridge is a shorting plug designed and engineered reduce high-frequency noise interference in high-performance hi-fi equipment. Perfect for devices with unused power supply upgrade ports – eg. Naim Audio NDX and NDX 2 – Bridge acts as a ‘protector’ of these unused ports, reducing HF noise on the critical signal ground.

Standard blanking plugs supplied by manufacturers are unshielded: Bridge uses a heavy-gauge machined aluminium chassis for both acoustic and electrical isolation, as well as Chord’s flagship proprietary Taylon® insulation material throughout the internal wiring.

And it works. Genius!


Enjoy enhanced audio streamer performance (incl. Naim Audio) without an external power supply.

Added protection from HF noise on the signal ground. Even small quantities of this noise can have a significant impact on a system’s musical performance.

The Chord Company Bridge is hand built in UK and upgrades the lightweight, unshielded shorting plug supplied with audio streaming equipment, offering a no-compromise, noise-reduced connection. It features a machined heavy-gauge aluminium case for both acoustic and electrical isolation. The Taylon® insulated wiring and resin-dampened internal assembly further increase this isolation.

Prototype testing with a few Naim NDX owners generated enthusiastic requests for Bridge units for use in their own systems. Only too happy to oblige, Chord commissioned a limited run of cases and hand assembled each unit.
