High Marks for Shawline X Speaker Cable

Posted by The Sound Organisation on May 10th 2019

The  Shawline X Speaker Cable is the improved iteration of the much-lauded Rumour X speaker cable, and it is quickly gaining respect its older counterpart has long enjoyed. Like the Rumour X, the Shawline X uses Chord's new XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) material to insulate the cable. Terminated with the silver-plated ChordOhmic plugs, the Shawline X further improves on earlier iterations with the special PVC internal jacket to reduce mechanical noise and the high density, dual-layer foil and braid shield used in the higher-end Chord Epic cables. The result is a cable that stands above all other entries in its class and sits at a price point that makes it very attainable.

The amazing sound quality and price of the Shawline X Speaker Cable has not gone unnoticed. Jon Myles of Hi-Fi World Magazine recently got the opportunity to give the Shawline X a listen and was blown away by the transparency of the cables. 

The biggest compliment I can pay them is that they simply get out of the way and let the music come through, revealing details you may have never noticed before on many recordings.
