The Quest for Audio Excellence
In developing the Chord C-stream Ethernet cable, Chord follows a meticulous process that underlines their commitment to audio excellence. The journey begins with the realization that Ethernet cables can impact sound quality, leading them to test various cable types, including Cat 5, 6, and 7 variants, across different music streamers and sample rates. Their findings confirm that cable variations indeed affect sound quality, irrespective of the equipment's level or the music's sample rate. Additionally, they discover that the cable's direction of connection plays a role in overall sound quality.
Introducing the Chord C-stream Ethernet Cable
Chord's response to their discoveries is the meticulously designed Chord C-stream Ethernet cable. This cable boasts Cat 7 specifications, featuring gold-plated contacts and an over-molded plug body. These design elements ensure both reliability and secure strain relief without compromising performance. While conventional Ethernet cables work without directionality, the C-stream Ethernet cable is optimized for audio systems and is directional, delivering superior sound quality when connected in a specific direction. To identify the correct end for connection, look for a small black dot; this marks the end that should be linked to the source component, such as connecting it to the router when used between a router and streamer.
The Chord C-stream Ethernet cable is equipped with high-speed oxygen-free copper conductors, individually shielded and twisted conductor pairs, and an overall shield. Its low-loss, low-density polyethylene insulation, along with 24ct. gold-plated signal contacts, further enhances its performance. With a non-compression strain relief system and a range of available lengths (0.75m, 1.5m, 3m, 5m, and 10m), the Chord C-stream Ethernet cable is meticulously designed to elevate your audio experience to new heights
|This cable has been designed to carry high-quality sound data. To obtain the best results from this cable, please follow these instructions:|
|1.||Switch off all equipment before fitting or removing cables.|
|2.||Avoid touching the contact areas of the plug.|
|3.||Route the cable away from power cables.|
|4.||Test for compatibility with the equipment you wish to connect before installing cable in walls, floors, etc.|
|Look for a black dot on one of the RJ45 connectors. For best sound quality, the plug with the black dot should be connected to the source. If using the cable to connect an audio streamer to a router, the plug with the black dot should be connected to the router.|
