Chord Company's Chameleon Silver Plus has been reborn as the ChameleonPlus.

This interconnect now applies lessons learned from Chord's £1000 Indigo Plus.

As well as standard RCA phono connections, you can specify fully balanced XLR plugs too. The ChameleonPlus infuses music with a real sense of get up and go.

It sounds clearer and more detailed than the older Silver Plus. There's a vibrancy and attack to the sound, which enthuses and entertains the listener.

Bass sounds beefy and taut, while vocals and high frequencies are expressive without becoming shouty.
