Chord Company Crimson VEE 3 4 RCA to DIN Interconnects

“I have a strange and unexplainable attachment to my cassettes, and a better quality cable made a difference to both the recording and the play back.”

Still got a cassette deck?  Still got a vast number of cassette recordings dating back to your youth?  Still make recordings to cassette tapes?

The Crimson VEE 3 5 pin Din to 4 RCA will let you make recordings and play back existing recordings. OK, so the truth is that hardly anyone does make analogue recordings any more, but there are a few people using some great reel to reel and cassette recorders.  If this is you, and a Naimor an old Quad system feature in your musical life, the Crimson VEE 3 4 RCA to 5 pin DIN is a perfect choice.

The other thing to think about though is this.  Yes to a cassette player or yes to a reel to reel, but use them exclusively for playback?   Then think about a 2 RCA to 5 pin DIN cable wired for play back.  Whatever reservations you may have about the quality of some of your recordings, you’ll find a good quality cable will make a big difference to even the murkiest of recordings.

The Cable

Chord Crimson VEE 3 cable is a balanced/symmetrical cable design.  There are two sets of multi-strand oxygen free copper conductors, one set used for the signal and the other set for the return.  The conductors are twisted and are insulated with a low density, low loss polyethylene.  We use the balanced configuration because it carries signals more accurately than a simple coaxial or asymmetrical cable.  The conductors are held in place with two vibration damping cotton spacers.  Reducing vibration both internally and externally is extremely important to signal quality.

The conductors and spacers are wrapped with a natural cotton filler before the critical dual-layer shielding is applied.  The shield comprises of a high density braid and an overlapped foil.  This combination of shields extends the performance of the shield across a wider bandwidth.  The shield is fully floating.  The shielding is then surrounded with a soft PVC to further improve mechanical damping and this is then protected with a hard PVC outer layer.

The Plugs

The Chord Crimson VEE 3 is fitted with Chord’s custom VEE 3 RCA plug.  The new design of the ABS outer shell and the unique gold-plating process applied to the contact areas improves signal transfer across a wider 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 provides good strain relief without compressing the cable and compromising the performance.

The Crimson VEE 3 RCA/DIN cable is terminated as standard with a 5 pinPREH DIN, the standard fitting for current Naim Audio equipment.  We can also supply the Crimson VEE 3 with standard latching DINs.
