Chord Leyline X has been designed to bring out the best performance from today’s increasingly sophisticated yet affordably priced electronics and loudspeakers and provide consistent and reliable service in environments where cables may be non-removable.
The Chord Company's latest XLPE dielectric brings a huge improvement over the previous (and more commonly used) PVC. This move follows the successful introduction of Taylon® as a phase-stable insulation material in the flagship SarumT and ChordMusic speaker cables and the subsequent roll-out of XLPE across our speaker cable ranges.
The original Leyline was always our high-performance, low-cost offering. Using a 16/2 conductor construction, Leyline was ahead of other 16/2 narrow gauge cables from launch, thanks to tin-plated copper conductors which performed two roles: preventing oxidisation (crucial for non-removeable cables where long-term performance is expected), plus improved high-frequency performance over longer runs; Leyline could deliver surprising results even over 100 m lengths.
