With the new Chord Company Solstice interconnect Chord has pioneered the use of high frequency effective shielding. Chord believes the complex nature of modern hi-fi systems make a compelling case for the use of similar shielding on the cables supplying power to the components. All the cables in the Solstice range are fitted with extremely effective high frequency shields.

With the Chord Company Solstice interconnect existing shield designs were re-visited, refined and improved. The shields fitted to the Chord Solstice interconnect offers the highest degree of signal protection available.

The Chord Solstice interconnect is fitted with a single wrap of very heavy gauge silver-plated foil in combination with an extremely dense silver-plated braid. The silver-plated foil is technically challenging to apply but when combined with the more conventional silver-plated braid, the results are exceptional. The Chord Solstice interconnect shielding offers a higher level of protection than any we have previously used.

Like many cables in the Chord range, the Chord Solstice interconnects use silver-plated multi-strand oxygen free copper conductors. In the case of the Chord Solstice interconnect however, each strand that makes up the conductor has been precision made and polished to ensure a completely smooth surface before being heavily coated with silver. This aids signal transfer, particularly in the high frequency region, and when combined with the foamed Teflon insulation, helps to produce an astonishingly high signal velocity rate of 87% the speed of light.

Teflon is used extensively throughout Chord's cable range. It has an extremely low dielectric value and Chord believe that its use is critical when employing silver-plated conductors. The Chord Solstice interconnect takes this a step further. The Chord Solstice interconnects employs foamed Teflon insulation, with the speaker cable using air-spaced Teflon.

In line with Chord's policy of continual evolution, The Chord Company has refined and developed existing cable geometry. The Chord Solstice interconnect, like the Indigo Plus, uses a secondary return path conductor. This technique enhances a cable's ability to accurately carry an audio signal across an extended bandwidth

The primary and secondary return path conductors used in the Chord Solstice interconnect is identical to the signal path conductor. The sonic advantages of using dual signal return conductors can be improved still further by separately shielding each set of conductors. All three conductors used for each run of Solstice interconnect cable are fitted with the ground-breaking Solstice shielding system.

The technical advances made during the development of the Chord Solstice make it one of the most flexible and compatible high-performance cables available. The Chord Solstice interconnects can be terminated with RCA/phono plugs, DIN plugs and XLR plugs. We have maintained a single material signal path by using silver-plated connectors within these plugs. All the joints are made with a high silver content solder
