The new conductor configuration in the Chameleon VEE 3 has a profound effect on just about every aspect of performance that is important to a properly immersive musical experience. There is a good chance that the Chameleon VEE 3 will begin to let you understand that your equipment is better than you thought and begin to understand just how good your favourite musicians are.
Three sets of silver-plated conductors are connected to silver-plated VEE 3 RCA plugs using a special silver solder and shielded from interference with a 93% braid and a heavy gauge shield.
There are a lot of very impressive components available these days, particularly some of the new generation of digital to analogue converters. The cost of the Chameleon VEE 3 might seem to be out of context compared to the cost of the DACs but you do need to have a listen. Itís a remarkable cable that will do justice to some remarkable products.
The Chord Chameleon VEE 3 uses Chordís established Chameleon SilverPlus cable. The conductors though have been re-configured into a single signal and dual return configuration to improve definition and timing. The multi-stranded silver-plated oxygen free copper conductors are insulated with FEP, a combination of materials that improve signal transfer at frequency extremes. A cotton fibre conductor wrap reduces mechanical noise and a fully floating high frequency effective, high density braid and foil shielding combination minimises signal loss through interference. The shields are surrounded by soft PVC to further reduce mechanical noise and this is protected by a hard PVC outer casing.
The Chameleon VEE 3 is fitted with Chordís custom VEE 3 RCA plugs. The new design of the ABS outer shell and the unique silver-plating process applied to the contact areas improves signal transfer across a wide frequency range. The signal return surround provides a secure high pressure contact with all types of RCA sockets. The centre pin is insulated with PTFE and the design of the plug and ABS outer shell provides good strain relief without compressing the cable and compromising performance.

The Chameleon VEE 3 is a remarkable interconnect, with a set of performance characteristics that are associated with high end cable designs. There is the DNA of Sarum within the Chameleonís design and build. This means that the Chameleon VEE 3 is a remarkably transparent cable that gets used and enjoyed in a wide range of systems from entry level to high end. It is a very good way of finding out what the components in your system are doing and often discovering that they are quite a lot better than you thought.

We are pleased to offer a free cable burn-in service for this cable when purchased through us. The Nordost VIDAR cable burn-in machine combines three different functions all in one operation:
- It neutralises charges that build up around the cables and the insulation
- It provides a very wide band and deep conditioning into the conductor core, which produces changes in the way signals pass through the metal.
- It ultrasonically conditions the surface of the conductors.
The VIDAR uses a proprietary combination of composite and complex signals to condition the cables. Parts of the signal oscillate at ultra-low frequencies, while other parts are in ultra-high ranges which extend beyond the range of video frequencies. The signal bounces in a ping-ping ball-like fashion from one end of the cable to the other. During the burn-in process, ultra-low frequencies penetrate deep into the core of the cable. The ultra-high frequencies zip along the surface. This method of signal transmission a set up beat harmonics, or heterodynes, between the two complex waveforms. In the digital domain, this would be referred to as aliasing products. These beat frequencies penetrate all layers of the cable.
The design of the circuitry also has a unique feature which drives electrons above the conductor into the dielectric (or insulation) area. The VIDAR not only sends ping pong signals along the cable, it also sends a similar signal from the centre core to the outer shield in the case of interconnect cables. This function neutralises the electrical charges discussed above.
So what does that all mean to me?
The end result of conditioning cables with the Nordost VIDAR is improved sound staging, increased detail, and an overall more musical presentation.

About The Chord Company
Silver-Plated Oxygen Free Copper Conductors
The Chord Company Chameleon Silver Plus features silver-plated oxygen free copper conductors. Silver has a lower resistance than copper. Plating or coating copper conductors with silver reduces the overall resistance to signal flow and prevents the copper from oxidising. This allows the conductor to perform better for longer distances. Silver plating will improve audio performance, improving clarity and detail in audio applications and delivering higher resolution in video applications.
The Chord Company is dedicated to offering excellence in audio and audio visual cable design. Chord products have earned numerous accolades in the audio and recording industries over the past two decades. Based in Salisbury UK, The Chord Company continues to drive cable design and technology to its limits with the majority of its spectacular array of performance products designed and made in the UK.
