There are many possible upgrade paths for Naim Audio owners but Chord Shawline DIN cables have to be for any music lover, one of the most cost effective and musically profound steps forward you can make.
The biggest response to our Tuned/Super/ARAY debut cables came from Naim Audio owners. The musical transparency, coherent signal transfer, extraordinary reduction of interference and the consequent drop of the noise floor allowed Naim Audio owners to hear just how good their systems could be. While the Signature and Sarum DIN versions worked wonders with all levels of Naim Audio systems, expecting someone to spend more than the cost of their amplifier on a cable, regardless of how good it sounded wasn’t (with the odd exception) going to happen – which is where the Shawline Analogue DIN comes in.
Shawline Analogue DIN (like all ARAY cables) requires a high degree of precision that can only be achieved with painstaking hand assembly. The Shawline is built from FEP insulated, silver-plated conductors and uses a composite shielding material that works over a wide bandwidth and also reduces mechanical noise.
Shawline Analogue DIN is available in DIN to DIN, RCA to DIN and XLR to DIN (SNAIC) configurations. All feature our unique ARAY technology and all can enhance the performance of the mid-range Naim Audio amplifiers, players and digital devices in the same way Sarum and Signature and ChordMusic can for the bigger systems.
Chord Company Shawline DIN cables can be supplied with either 4 pin or 5 pin silver-plated DIN plugs in push-fit metal, plastic (Quad) or Preh locking ring (Naim Audio) variants. Available in standard 1m lengths and longer custom versions are available in all configurations.
