New Epic USB cable is built for today’s increasingly sophisticated DACs, streamers and digital devices
July 31st 2019, Wiltshire, England: Chord Company launches the new Epic USB cable, a hand-built solution designed to provide an increasingly sophisticated range of USB DACs, music streamers and digital source components with an unadulterated, high-quality signal.
The Wiltshire A/V cable specialist, that has been hand-building its cables in England since 1985, has created the new Epic USB based on lessons learned from the recently developed Chord Company Signature Super ARAY USB ($1,100); Epic USB’s sonic performance is, in fact, only fractionally behind that of the original Signature USB cable.
The hybrid design, with a focused approach on the most important elements in the cable, results in a performance level normally associated with significantly more expensive models. Epic USB, like so many Chord Company cables, benefits from specialist engineering surrounding cable shielding. UK-made ultra-low-resistance silver-plated copper Ohmic connectors, common to the Signature Super ARAY range, are used to connect the signal-runs of shielded silver-plated copper conductors.
Epic USB also takes advantage of Chord Company’s long-established proprietary Tuned ARAY technology, which maximizes performance and sonic accuracy at its price point.
Price and availability: Epic USB is priced at $520 for a 1m cable, and may be custom built up to the maximum USB standard of 5m. The Epic USB will be available in the United States soon.
Demonstration cables will be available through The Sound Organisation.
