Chord Cobra Plus Audio Interconnect (Pair)

One of the most popular cables in the Chord range, the Cobra 3 has been improved. The new CobraPlus features a shielding system based on the one fitted to the Solstice interconnect.

The CobraPlus keeps the same sweet, even tonality that made the Cobra 3 so popular. The improved shielding reduces interference, increases dynamics and detail and enhances timing and rhythm.

High purity oxygen-free copper conductors, low-density polyethylene dielectric. Floating shield. Well balanced, dynamic, detailed and coherent. Outstandingly compatible and exceptional value.

Use it with: Chord Rumour, Carnival SilverScreen, Carnival Classic and Leyline speaker cables, SuperScreen mains

The cheapest one I could find on google.

This seems like a good price. Unfortunately it's a cable/lead, so I automatically vote it cold. You can get them at the pound shop, or just straighten out a couple of wire coat hangers and jam them in back of your system, using a couple of carrier bags to stop them touching.

Oh dear, an audio cable thread.

This is a good price for a well reviewed cable that typically sells for over 50 quid.

I sincerely hope the above poster is writing in jest..
Chord are a fantastic manufacturer of A.V. leads & great folk to deal with, don't think it should be legal to sell kit with anything other than the powerlead so you waste all that precious money not wringing out the best elements of the system for which you purchased it for, namely quality of sound / picture.

I used to use mainly chord on my systems at work, the difference was there for all to see & hear!
Good price, good kit!
do yourselves a favour & have a look at their stuff!

I am new here, are audio cable threads disliked?

At least Chord is manufacturing something in Britain, thats rare in itself!

Something wrong with the site; tried to pay using 2 different credit cards but does not recognise the payment details?

I used to be really into hifi and bought quite a few expensive cables, then I found that I could make my own for a fraction of the price and they sounded better. These days I cant stand the HiFi press.

Just as a little background, there has NEVER been any test that has proven that cables such as these make an audible, or measurable, difference over any other well constructed (and much cheaper) cable.

Rubbish.

Deal went through for me, not sure what was wrong for you.

The professional audio engineering world is positively littered with tests demonstrating termination quality (crimping or soldering), connector tarnishing and inadequate rfi shielding lead to significant signal degradation. A significant amount of published work was carried out by Ben Duncan in the nineties on precisely this subject.

From my personal experience I have had to fault-find and repair professional systems (mostly in studio environments) where cable shortcomings have resulted in system failure.

The biggest difference for domestic low level (unbalanced) interconnects probably relate to shield directionality (whether to drain the shield at the source or receiver end) and cable capacitance. Both these effects are extremely dependent on the source and receiver components so unstructured field testing is often inconclusive. But different cables will sound different with different components.

I doubt whether there is much correlation between cost and cable performance once you go beyond a certain level and I entirely accept the audio industry has far too many snake-oil salesman. I am sure it is easy to get confused between marketing myth and engineering fact if you are not an engineer yourself, so the layman has my sympathy. But take it from someone that knows that the cheap/free, easily tarnished, easily mishapen, high or variable capacitance, flimsy interconnects that often come thrown in a box with a hi-fi component are bad news. Spending £30 on a reputable well-constructed cable is perfectly sensible behaviour if only for long term reliability of the physical connection.

Ah, now it works! think the system was having issues then. Thanks, heat added!
