Chord Company ShawlineX ARAY Cables

ShawlineX ARAY Cables

Analogue interconnects

High-performance XLPE insulation upgrade

Refinement and sophistication take centre stage.

Hand built in UK with high-quality silver-plated conductors, increasingly complex layers of shielding and their unique ARAY geometry.

Chord Company ShawlineX ARAY cables are now further upgraded with the latest XLPE insulation.

Proven via hours of testing and field demo sessions with all manner of hi-fi equipment, Shawline can benefit all systems including those with older components.

The Shawline range boasts a dedicated tone arm cable, mini-jack options, HDMI AOC, power cables with multiple connector options, speaker cable and a variety of digital connections.

The Chord Company ShawlineX ARAY analogue cables are fitted with ChorAlloy™plated VEE 3 RCA, DIN, mini-jack or XLR connectors.


The construction and specification of all Chord Company cables are constantly evolving, allowing them to adapt quickly and take advantage of the latest technology.

Insulation materials in particular have made great leaps forward which is why they are moving to XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) wherever possible.

After a succesful introduction via various Chord Company speaker cables it was logical to share the benefits of XLPE insulation with their interconnects.

On the surface this would appear to be a fairly simple undertaking but, like many of these things, it got complicated..

Several versions and much field testing later they are very happy to announce that XLPE will now be incorporated into all Shawline analogue interconnects.

The new upgraded analogue cable retains the same high-performance shielding architecture and ARAY technology as its predecessor.

Chord Company

Chord Company


The Chord Company was formed in 1984. It all started over dinner one night in Salisbury, when a group of visiting Naim Audio USA retailers asked Naim Audio UK for a good-quality DIN-to-RCA interconnect. At the table, was one Sally Gibb, then married to a Naim Audio executive, who made the (historic) suggestion that she make the cables and start a business. 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…
