 Chord Rumour X Loudspeaker Cable

Chords' Rumour X will make the most out of compact bookshelf speakers and large floorstanders to the best of their ability. Two sets of silver-plated conductors are insulated with XLPE and are then arranged in a twist configuration. Chord found that this design technology was so successful, that they began to implement it to every other model of speaker cable they sell, all the way up to the reference level models. 

Rumour is the first cable in their catalogue to use this critically acclaimed combination of silver-plated conductors and XLPE insulation, guaranteeing a strong and detailed signal transfer of superior quality, resulting in a performance far superior to its price point would suggest. 

Previous versions of Rumour speaker cables used PTFE insulation (often referred to as Teflon™) and until the arrival of Taylon®, this was Chords “go-to” material. Although expensive, PTFE offered the best performance.

The Chord Company is constantly developing and improving their materials meaning that alternatives to PTFE are now available. While the high cost of Taylon® prevents them from using this in all of our ranges, they were able to find a suitable family of insulation materials known as XLPE (Cross-linked Polyethylene). One version of this material looked particularly interesting and following listening tests, proved to be clearly better than the PTFE in Rumour speaker cable – now known as Rumour X.

Sold as single metre lengths, please adjust the quantity accordingly. Please ensure that the correct length, termination and quantity is selected before ordering, as once cables are custom cut to the order specifications, they can not be returned.
