The Chord Cobra has been part of the Chord Company range for over twenty years and the Chord CobraPlus represents its fourth revision. Cobra 3 (the cable that CobraPlus replaces) has been one of The Chord Company's most popular cables, so the decision to revise this was not taken lightly. However, during the development of Chord Company high end cables some fundamental lessons about shielding have were learned. Applying these principles to the CobraPlus has produced an extraordinary increase in performance.

The twisted pair configuration, pseudo balanced, oxygen free copper conductors used on Cobra 3 remain in place, as does the low-density polyethylene insulation. Mechanical damping however changes and four runs of twisted cotton now run alongside the conductors to help damp unwanted vibrations. The major changes take place at the point of applying the shielding. The density of the woven braid used on the Cobra 3 has been improved. This is then surrounded by a heavy gauge foil shield. Although The Chord Company has used foil shields for many years, the improvements in performance to be gained by increasing the gauge of the foil are very impressive. When compared to the original Cobra 3, the new CobraPlus is capable of bringing a markedly more neutral and detailed sound to the system to which it is fitted. Dynamics (particularly micro-dynamics) are also easier to hear, so rhythms are more clearly stated and complex music is simpler to follow

The obvious choice of speaker cable for use with the Chord CobraPlus analogue interconnects is the Chord Company's award winning Carnival SilverScreen. Both cables employ extremely effective high frequency shields and both use high quality oxygen free copper in combination with low density polyethylene insulation. The two cables used together can really lift the performance of any Hi Fi or home cinema system, improving detail levels, dynamics and helping to produce a really involving musical experience.

At this point it would also be worth experimenting with mains cables. With CobraPlus and Carnival SilverScreen in place try introducing a Chord SuperScreen mains cable to the source component. The SuperScreen mains cable uses the same shielding as the Carnival SilverScreen speaker cable and can improve levels of detail and dynamics still further.

The Chord Cobra Plus interconnect is available fitted with gold-plated Chord VEE RCA plugs, Din plugs, Neutrik XLR balanced plugs with silver-plated contact areas and ¼ inch mono or stereo jack plugs. CobraPlus can also be terminated with other connectors. If you have a specific requirement, please contact us.

The Chord VEE plug uses a unique ABS enclosure to surround a low mass gold or silver-plated centre pin and signal return. A special non-compression cable clamp is also employed. The VEE plug has a profound effect on the performance of all the cables it is fitted to. Detail and definition are enhanced and pace, rhythm and timing improved.
