Chord Cadenza
If you have a high-end hi-fi system, you ought to have a high-end cable – the new Chord Cadenza could just fit the bill

Stereo interconnects might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to high-end audio kit but your cables are as crucial a component as any in your hi-fi system.

So if you think your system's worth it, the Chord Company Cadenza interconnect, at £185 for a metre length, may well be worth considering.

The design is based on Chord Company's Chorus cable, and claims to boast a similarly big, bold and dynamic presentation, though with a more neutral tonal signature.

There's plenty of technology crammed in to cable construction, the Cadenza sporting a 'twisted pair configuration' of silver-plated copper conductors, which are in turn insulated with Teflon and surrounded by PVC.

Chord's silver-plated RCA plugs finish the cable off, plus there are also XLR and DIN terminations (the latter costing £145) available.
