CHORD RUMOUR 2 INSTALLATION SPEAKER CABLE
Chord Rumour 2 is a remarkably compatible speaker cable and can be used with almost any amplifier and speaker, from mini systems right up to large floorstanding speakers.
Two sets of silver-plated conductors are insulated with PTFE and arranged in a twist configuration, a design feature that was so successful, Chord used it on all their other speaker cables. The PTFE insulated conductors are held in place by a vibration damping outer jacket. Chord Rumour 2 is the first speaker cable in the Chord range to use this combination of silver-plated conductors and PTFE insulation.
Rumour 2 will produce excellent definition right through the frequency range, outstanding dynamics and once run in, an outstandingly neutral tonal quality. This is a cable that performs like a high-end speaker cable and this performance comes from a cable with a diameter of only 5 mm, making Rumour 2 the ideal choice for extracting genuine performance from what, in Hi-Fi terms, is a near invisible cable.
Chord Rumour 2 is the first speaker cable in the Chord range to use a combination of silver-plated conductors and PTFE insulation. It is also the first speaker cable that Chord produced using twisted conductor configuration. They experimented with several cable geometries before settling on the twisted pair configuration that they have used ever since.
– Conductors – 2 x 16 AWG 19 strand silver-plated oxygen-free copper.
– Configuration – Twisted pair configuration.
– Conductor Insulation – PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene). Chord believe that to obtain the most neutral tonal characteristic from silver-plated conductors it is vital to use PTFE or FEP insulation. White with red stripe is positive, white is negative.
– Jacket – PVC.
– Diameter – 5mm.
– Colour – White.
– Terminations – Unterminated or Chord 24-karat gold-plated banana plugs.
