Chord Company Bridge

Building A Bridge To Your Heart (and reducing unwanted high-frequency noise in audiophile network music players)

Chord Company Bridge

The Chord Company Bridge is a shorting plug designed to help reduce high-frequency noise interference in high-performance hi-fi equipment.

Perfect for devices with unused power supply upgrade ports – eg. Naim Audio NDX and NDX 2.

The Chord Company Bridge works to reduce high-frequency noise on the critical signal ground.

It should offer an instant upgrade over the basic unshielded shorting plugs supplied with your audio equipment.

Benefitting from a machined aluminium chassis for both acoustic and electrical isolation, the Bridge also offers their unique proprietary Taylon insulation material (as found in the flagship ChordMusic and Sarum T cables) throughout the internal wiring.

Resin-damped internals further increase acoustic isolation.

Prototype testing with a few Naim NDX owners generated enthusiastic requests for Bridge units for use in their own systems.

Only too happy to oblige, The Chord Company commissioned a limited run of cases and hand assembled each unit.

We can supply these while case stocks last!

With the blessing of Naim Audio, the journey to make cables for America began.

With USA referring to cables as ‘cords’, the name The Chord Company, with its obvious musical connotations, seemed perfect and it quickly stuck. Sally drew a logo, designed the packaging and started testing prototypes. Completely British design and construction, although difficult to source at the time, was paramount and days of searching eventually led to suppliers of sufficient quality.

Friends at Naim Audio provided expertise and advice, with many of them helping to build the cables.

The first prototype was named “Chrysalis Cable” and the Americans swiftly returned with an initial order of 250! Cables were built, tested, packed and taken along to the Post Office.  Invoices were typed on a typewriter! After two steady years,

The Chord Company got its first press review (by Malcolm Steward) and then the phone started to ring…
