The original high-end cable gets a high-tech insulation upgrade

Signature is The Chord Company’s longest-running cable range and has been a Chord Company staple since 1998. Its longevity and consistent performance have contributed greatly to their worldwide status and is a mark of their dedication to getting the very best sound from your hi-fi.

Materials, construction and specifications have evolved and improved over the years, keeping Signature at the cutting edge of the hi-fi industry. Recent benefits have included ARAY technology and ChorAlloy™ plating for connectors.

Insulation technology too is constantly improving, hence their switch to XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) for SignatureXL speaker and SignatureX power cables, with each delivering outstanding results to widespread critical acclaim.

SignatureX Power cable

SignatureX Power cable is designed, hand built and tested in the UK and benefits from the latest XLPE insulation. Consistently high-quality performance in any environment and across all audio/video applications. Alongside the unique Chord Company ARAY geometry this upgraded mains cable features significantly heavier-gauge conductors meaning less resistance and greater efficiency.

SignatureX Tuned ARAY Analogue DIN

Producing the Signature Tuned ARAY meant redesigning the internal conductors. Given how popular Sarum cables were with Naim owners, the new Signature conductors had to be suitable for DIN plugs. Signature Tuned ARAY DIN cables bring smaller Naim systems alive in the same way Sarum transforms their bigger systems.

SignatureX Tuned ARAY Analogue RCA

A perfect example of why Tuned ARAY cables are so special. Hugely revealing with wonderful musical transparency.  It can transform players that cost little more than the cable.  Combine any decent mid-price player with Signature Tuned ARAY to produce a thrilling musical performance.

SignatureX Tuned ARAY Analogue XLR

XLR cables often use two conductors to carry the signals and the shield for earth. Chord add a third identical conductor for the return signal on the Chord Signature. The shield is out of the circuit and unwanted interference is reduced.

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…
