Chord Shawline Power Cord mains cable EU


Chord Shawline Power Cord mains cable EU


The Shawline Power Cord Mains Cable is a high specification cable – designed, hand-built and rigorously tested in the UK. An updated and reworked version of the previous Power Chord, now featuring an improved, thicker stranded conductor and a redesigned, higher gauge braid wire shield. Part of the widely acclaimed and extensive Shawline range of analogue and digital interconnects, headphone and speaker cables.

It took us a long time to produce our first mains cable (see inset). We had experimented for years, but couldn’t produce consistent results from system to system. It took the development and production of the Chord Signature speaker cable for us to understand how to make a power cable that would produce the same improvement regardless of the system.  The crucial area is the shielding, which needs to be effective to very high frequencies.

We heartily recommend all hi-fi owners experiment with this product .  High frequency interference in the domestic environment is growing and shielded power cables are an effective way of dealing with it. Borrow one from a Chord Company retailer and try it with your source component. It’s easy to hear what effective shielding can do and once you’ve proved it to yourself there,  try it with amplifiers and any other AV equipment.

Fitting and application:

This Chord Company mains power cable is fitted with a 13-amp fuse and is intended for use only with hi-fi and audio-visual components. It has been designed to improve the overall performance of audio and video components. The unique shielding system means it can also improve picture quality when used with projectors and screens.
