Hi 

 

I just upgraded my analogue audio intercconect from the Chord Chrimson plus to  the Chord Chorus2 to find out a huge improvement on

the sound : it is more clear , lively sound stage  and superbly detailed it took my system to a completly different  level stage forward .

Seriously, mains cable can make a big difference, I know interconnects do, like wise speaker cable but the mains cable thing is the magic truly that powerful?

Don't take my word for it, but try something good (ie.that has plenty of magic already built-in)!  excellent!

That is a hard one to answer. I think I would do S/Cs first....but I'm not sure there is a right answer.

I'm not going to argue, as there is good logic in preserving the signal as intact as possible.

You need to borrow some, as only you can answer that question.

RE: Chord Chorus2

This cabel is really a magic the sound is so lively and real !

My next step is to upgrade my speakers and the speakers cabels to Tellurium Black which I demoed  them as well and the combination with the Chord Chorus2 was stunning .

RE: Chord Chorus2 Vs. Tellurium Ultra Black

Hi

 

I am very statisfied with the Chord Chorus 2  but after 6 month of using it I have a suspicion that since it is based on silver material it tends to be

a little too bright for my system and I am considering to change it for the Tellurium Ultra Black RCA cabel . I already have the Tellurium Black speaker

cabels and I think it wil be a better match than the  Chord Chorus 2 . What do you think ?

RE: Chord Chorus2 Vs. Tellurium Ultra Black

Try both TQ Black and Green (a little smoother).

Vertere and Atlas are also worth trying.

Apologies, there isn't a TQ Green i/c.

IMO. The TQ Ultra Black is better than the Chord.  Can you try some?
