Chord Cobra Vee 3 XLR Audio Interconnect

ABOUT CHORD COMPANY

The Chord Company has been designing, manufacturing and selling interconnects and speaker cables for over 25 years. The company and all those who work there have a commitment to producing high quality products.

Right from the start, The Chord Company understood the need to ensure that the manufacture and termination process of its products needed to be extremely consistent. This near-obsession with manufacture is a critical factor in maintaining the remarkably coherent performance and quality that Chord products are known for.

Every Chord Co employee, regardless of their role, spends time in the production department in order to understand just how much work and effort goes into the manufacture of Chord products. Chord are justifiably proud of the remarkable consistency the company's production methods bring to their products, likewise the thorough quality assurance and testing procedure that every product must go through before leaving the factory. Failures during testing are extremely rare, testament to the rigorous training that every production operative must go through before becoming part of the production team.

The Chord Co believe that anyone who listens to their cables should be able to clearly and easily hear the benefits that their cables can bring to the enjoyment of music and film, and that these benefits should justify the cost of the product. The concept that speaker cables and interconnects can change and improve the performance of a hi-fi or home cinema system can be difficult to understand.

Our answer to this is to ignore the words, ignore the hype and simply listen to the product. At Life Style Store we carry demonstration stock and invite our customers to try the cables for themselves, secure in the knowledge that the simplest way for you to choose a Chord cable is by allowing our customers to listen to it with their own system.

“Drum kits sound really clear and you can hear how well they work with the rest of the band.”

Silver-plated conductors and FEP insulation means that the Cobra VEE 3 will carry more information, more accurately. Dynamics are better and that makes for better rhythm and timing, meaning that your favourite band is going to sound a whole lot more tight and in the groove. It’s a brilliant way to discover that there’s more to your favourite music than you thought.

Twin silver-plated oxygen free copper conductors are insulated with FEP and carry the hot and cold signals. The high density, high frequency effective shield makes the earth connection and really helps with definition and detail, particularly at the frequency extremes.

Fitted with Neutrik XLR connectors, the Cobra VEE 3 looks like a classic balanced XLR configuration cable.  It is, but the silver-plated, FEP insulated conductors really help with detail and dynamics and open the window wider. Hear more, enjoy more. Get involved.

Listen to the Cobra VEE 3 XLR with: Ryan Adams “Sweet Carolina” from the album “Heartbreaker”.

Hear: Ryan Adams’ and Emmylou Harris’ beautiful, cracked vocal harmonies.

Listen for: The dynamics of the piano and the warmth of the Hammond B3 organ.  

IN MORE DETAIL:

The Cable

Cobra VEE 3 is similar in construction and configuration to Crimson VEE 3 but with a crucial and performance improving difference. Cobra VEE 3 conductors are constructed from multi-stranded silver-plated oxygen free copper conductors and the conductors are insulated with FEP, a material with very similar performance characteristics to PTFE.  This combination of materials is used extensively in Chord cable designs.  We find that it improves signal transfer across a wide bandwidth, particularly noticeable at frequency extremes.  The pseudo-balanced conductors are held in place with cotton spacers to reduce mechanical noise and protected with a dual layer high frequency effective foil and braid combination shield.    The shielding is surrounded with a soft PVC to provide further mechanical damping and this is protected with a hard PVC outer jacket. 

The Plugs

The conductor configuration of the Cobra VEE 3 is similar to the Crimson VEE 3 so the cable will work well with XLR connections.  The silver-plated conductors in combination with FEP insulation that we use in Cobra VEE 3 will improve detail, definition and dynamics.  So the Cobra VEE 3 XLR cable will produce a more detailed, dynamic and ultimately musically coherent sound.

Use it with

Cobra VEE 3’s silver-plated, FEP insulated conductors and high frequency effective dual layer shield, combine to carry a signal with a high degree of accuracy.  This is a very good cable to try with some of the new generation of DACs that offer both balanced and RCA outputs.  Once again though we would suggest that if you can, you should try both the balanced and RCA outputs and see which one you prefer.
