Chord Company ChorAlloy

Plating away

The Chord Company is upgrading its cables’ connectors with its new ChorAlloy plating technology, billed as the company’s next-generation plating system.

A multi-metal plating technology, ChorAlloy is the result of its technicians identifying the detrimental effects of tarnish (silver sulphide Ag2S) in silver connector plugs, which can cause intermodulation effects at high frequencies.

This led ChorAlloy’s development, which are now available on the VEE3 and PTFE RCA/phono connectors, ChordOhmic speaker connectors (spade and 4mm banana), USB types A and B, BNC connectors along with DIN/XLR connecting pins.
