    During the development of the Chord Clearway, valuable research was carried out in relation to the behaviour of conductors and different dielectrics (insulation). For a long time, they have understood the importance of the relationship between conductor materials and insulation, and its silver-plated speaker cables make extensive use of PTFE as an insulation material.

    The type of insulation doesn’t just affect a cable’s ability to carry signals accurately, it also has an effect on the tonal characteristics that the cable brings to the system. This often takes the form of an unwanted increase in bass frequencies, which directly limits a system’s ability to produce music with coherence and involvement.

    Typically, cables that use oxygen-free copper as a conductor material will use either polyethylene or PVC as an insulating material. What sets The Chord Company’s Clearway speaker cable apart is its use of FEP: a derivative of PTFE with very similar performance characteristics. Compared to polyethylene, the FEP-insulated Clearway carries both detail and dynamic information markedly more accurately. The tonal properties of the cable are also considerably more neutral.

    The FEP-insulated conductors are built from multi-strand oxygen-free copper and are arranged in a twisted-pair configuration to reduce interference. The two conductors are then protected with a layer of soft PVC (which was chosen over polyethylene because of its flexibility), in order to correctly space the shielding in relation to the conductors and to minimise any mechanically induced noise.

    High-frequency shielding:

    High-performance shielding is specified and just like the award-winning Carnival SilverScreen, Chord Clearway speaker cable features two contra-wound high-density foil shields. Like many Chord speaker cables, the twin foils, combined with the twisted-pair configuration, make for a level of shielding that is effective to high frequencies. Finally, a clear protective PVC jacket is applied, which again serves to further reduce any mechanically induced noise.

    Chord Clearway speaker cable borrows key ideas from our recent development projects. Clearway refines 30 years of Chord know-how into a ground-breaking, highly affordable new speaker cable.

    “Chord hasn’t created a speaker cable that’ll make your system sound its cleanest or most detailed, but an understanding of what makes music enjoyable means the positives far outweigh that.

    Often, they tend to say cleaner, amounts to better detail, space, frequency range; those things matter, and if the Clearway were lacking in those respects it wouldn’t be given five stars.".

    What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision - October 2015

    "This Award is a kind of 30th birthday present for a company that has made this sort of sound its signature. It has been pipped marginally in this category in recent years, but the Clearway delivers so much that it's hard to look past it and find anything as good this year.

    Detail, space, frequency range - those things matter, and if the Clearway were lacking in those respects it wouldn't be given five starts. But what matters more is the knitting together and musicality, and that's where Chord has this right for the price. If you're investing your hard-earned in your hi-fi system, this is the kind of speaker cable it deserves."

    FREE CABLE BURN-IN SERVICE OPTION USING THE NORDOST VIDAR MACHINE WHEN YOU PURCHASE THIS CABLE FROM FUTURESHOP.CO.UK

    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.

    I was previously using QED silver anniversary cable to bi-wire some B&W dm602's. As I am down sizing to some Dali Zensor 1's - I decided to use some newer, different cables. The chord clearway were awarded a what hifi best buy, and, after reading the review, I decided to buy the clearway cable. The cable matched the speakers and my set up well. I bought them with banana ends, fitted by Future Shop, and they were made up well and of brilliant quality - as is the cable. The cable some how unveiled a great sense of depth and dynamics in the sound and did not introduce any brightness or confusion. I can only sum it up by the fact that the cable provided a clear, open sound which was natural - it just encourages you to play more and more music. All in all a great cable, well worth the price and a great addition to your hifi set up. This cable, added to Future Shops excellent communication and delivery, is a highly recommended.

    It was a straight choice between this and the identically priced QED XT40. Partly base on the What Hi Fi review and award, I chose the Chord Company Clearway cable. After a few days listening, I have absolutely no regrets. It is a wonderful cable: transparent, warm, coherent, musical and naturalistic, it has added to my listening pleasure. Nothing is forced, just beautifully balanced. Having listened to many contradictory theories about burning in cables before use, I decided to let the cables find their own way into my system. If anybody is considering Chord Clearway speaker cable, I would say go ahead. I don't think you will regret the decision. As always, Future Shop's service has been impeccable.
