Chord Company Epic X Speaker Cable

  • Please note this cable is sold per single length. For a stereo pair you will need to purchase 2.

EpicX (prev Epic/Epic Twin) has been part of our speaker cable range for many years – it’s a shielded cable that works with pretty much every style of speaker.  From mid-price to high end, EpicX brings detail, dynamics, resolution and coherence to every speaker it’s used with.  It’s particularly good at bringing control and definition across the bass frequencies and is the ideal cable solution for floor-standing speakers.

EpicX is based on our multi-award-winning Chord OdysseyX speaker cable.  Both cables use 12 AWG oxygen free copper negative and positive conductors, silver-plated and insulated with XLPE before an outer PVC jacket is applied.  The key difference (and performance leap) is due to the effective high frequency combination shield and translucent PVC jacket that is added to EpicX.

EpicX is the perfect partner for Chord Company ChordOhmic plugs, neatly complemented by the new ‘trousers’.

In addition to factory terminations, the cable can also be professionally terminated by participating Chord Company dealers (of which we are one!) equipped with the new ChordOhmic Hex Gun tool; the service not only delivers tailor-made lengths, but it also jumps the build queue at the factory. Existing cables can also be upgraded with the new plugs, trousers and terminations, too.

Conductors:  2 x 12 AWG 19 strand silver-plated oxygen free copper.

Configuration:  Twisted pair configuration.

Conductor insulation:  PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene).   We believe that to obtain the most neutral tonal characteristic from silver-plated conductors it is vital to use PTFE insulation.  White with red stripe is positive, white is negative.

Internal conductor surround:  PVC.

Shielding:  Dual layer, high density braid and overlapped foil.

External jacket:  PVC.

Diameter:  11mm.

Colour:  Translucent brown

Epic X speaker cable 10m runs
Saturday, 16 July 2022  | 

Bought to replace old chord flatline. More detail, and subtlety in instrumentation and vocals. Vocals a bit forward and a bit bright to what I was used to, this was compensated by turning up the bass a bit. Sound was further improved with a bit of DIY by fitting a drain earth to the cable screen (similar to Atlas grun idea of instrument lead earthing). Even more detail was revealed sound seemed quieter (so turned up amp) and the overall presentation was smoother more front to back detail more natural and nuanced. I can't think of much more that can be achieved maybe a bit more of that palpable sense of presence but that's being picky. A real improvement especially with the cable screen earthed.
