ClearwayX ARAY Cables
NEW ClearwayX ARAY analogue interconnects
ClearwayX ARAY Analogue is the most affordable way to benefit from their recently introduced cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) dielectric.
The upgraded interconnect is hand built in the UK and enjoys the latest enhanced shielding and ARAY conductor geometry.
ClearwayX ARAY Analogue improves on its multi-award-winning predecessor, already a What Hi-Fi? ‘Best interconnect’ c.£100 for an unrivalled six successive years (2017-2022).
The cable features ChorAlloy™ plated Chord VEE3 RCA, DIN, XLR and mini-jack connectors and is available in a variety of useful lengths, with custom runs and terminations to order.
ClearwayX ARAY Cables have enormous versatility across a wide range of AV systems and components
The construction and specification of all Chord Company cables are constantly evolving, allowing Chord Company 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 Clearway analogue interconnects.
The new upgraded analogue cable retains the same high-performance shielding architecture and ARAY technology as its predecessor.
ClearwayX ARAY analogue RCA
What Hi-Fi? Award Winner 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 – Best Analogue Interconnect £100+.
Hand built in the UK, ClearwayX ARAY RCA features ARAY conductor geometry, heavy gauge OFC conductors, upgraded XLPE insulation and dual-layer shielding.
ClearwayX RCA is fitted with ChorAlloy™ plated Chord VEE3 RCA connectors and is available in a variety of useful lengths.
Custom lengths and terminations are available to order.
RCA version is ready for use with RCA-equipped turntables.
ClearwayX ARAY analogue DIN
The ClearwayX ARAY DIN cable features ARAY conductor geometry, heavy gauge OFC conductors, upgraded XLPE insulation and dual-layer shielding.
Fitted with Chord Company ChorAlloy™ plated connectors/pins.
Equipment fitted with DIN sockets tends to be either Naim Audio or older Quad models.
Chord Company have huge experience in building both and ClearwayX DIN cables can be supplied with either 4 pin or 5 pin DIN plugs in push-fit metal, plastic (Quad) or Preh locking ring variants.
Strongly recommended for all Naim Audio owners and with any age or combination of equipment – classic and modern units alike will feel the benefit.
Standard length of Clearway DIN cables is 1m.
Many years ago they established that shorter length cables have a detrimental effect on Naim Audio amplifiers.
Longer custom lengths are not a problem.
ClearwayX ARAY analogue XLR
The ClearwayX ARAY XLR cable features ARAY conductor geometry, heavy gauge OFC conductors, upgraded XLPE insulation and dual-layer shielding.
The design of the ClearwayX ARAY analogue cable means that they can adapt the conductor configuration to produce a particularly good XLR terminated cable, allowing identical conductors for the hot, cold and earth connections.
The ClearwayX ARAY XLR is fitted with Neutrik XLR plugs containing Chord Company ChorAlloy™ plated connector pins.
Standard lengths are 1m and 0.5m, with custom lengths available to order.
ClearwayX ARAY analogue mini-jack/RCA cable
Hand built in the UK and featuring ARAY conductor geometry, heavy gauge oxygen free copper, their latest XLPE insulation and a dual-layer counter-wound heavy gauge foil design.
The ClearwayX ARAY mini-jack/RCA is fitted with ChorAlloy™ plated connectors.
Standard lengths are 1m and 0.5m, and because the ClearwayX ARAY is built in-house, custom lengths are available
ClearwayX ARAY analogue subwoofer cable
The ClearwayX ARAY subwoofer cable features ARAY conductor geometry , heavy gauge OFC, upgraded XLPE insulation and dual-layer shielding.
As it’s very happy at longer lengths, we believe the ClearwayX ARAY subwoofer cable is the perfect balance of cost and performance for any multi-channel system.
The Clearway Subwoofer cable is available fitted with ChorAlloy™ plated Chord VEE 3 RCA plugs and XLR connectors. Standard lengths are 3m and 5m, with custom lengths available to order
