The Chord Company's New Sarum T Introduces Taylon® & A Huge Performance Upgrade
The Chord Company will be launching Sarum T at the show, a new cable range that builds on the success of the acclaimed Sarum Super ARAY range and introduces Chord’s breakthrough proprietary insulation material, Taylon®, bringing a major performance upgrade. To date, Taylon® has been exclusive to the flagship ChordMusic portfolio, but now Sarum T brings the remarkable benefits of The Chord Company’s proprietary dielectric to a new, more accessible price level. Previous generations of Sarum Super ARAY cables have featured a PTFE dielectric and the upgrade to Taylon® introduces a raft of performance benefits.
What is Taylon®?
Taylon® is a revolutionary insulation material unique to The Chord Company. It originates from the most demanding military applications where highly advanced communication cables, both in space and on the ground, must offer predictable performance, regardless of environmental conditions. Taylon® is phase-stable at typical room temperatures and its implementation within audio cables preserves the critical timing information within music.
Taylon® is the best-performing dielectric The Chord Company has used in over 32 years of UK design and manufacturing. It is the most neutral and phase-stable insulation material available and remains the biggest step forward in insulation performance since the introduction of PTFE. Taylon® has been implemented throughout the new Sarum T range bringing an improved dimensional accuracy and an evolved geometry, which have further improved mechanical behaviour and shielding.
Sarum T also benefits from The Chord Company’s Super ARAY mechanical optimisation, factory terminations and hand-made construction. Sarum T establishes a completely new level of natural musical coherence and communication at its price point, raising the performance bar just as its stablemate ChordMusic did when Taylon® was first introduced.
Existing Sarum customers can upgrade to the new Sarum T standard with a factory rebuild service, costing around 40 per cent of Sarum T’s RRP (excludes speaker cables). Custom lengths can be made to order.
