Interconnect specialist Chord Company is progressively upgrading a number of its cable connectors with advanced ChorAlloy plating technology, the company’s next-generation plating system.

ChorAlloy is a multi-metal plating technology said to provide a significant upgrade over the company’s previous silver plating; it marks ‘a major step forward in connector performance’ says the brand. Benefits include much lower intermodulation, full solderability and a tarnish-free finish.

Chord Company technicians previously identified the detrimental effects of tarnish (silver sulphide Ag2S) in silver connector plugs, noting Ag2S can give rise to intermodulation effects at high frequencies. It’s this that led to the development of the ChorAlloy project.

The new ChorAlloy-plated connectors and plugs are available on the VEE3 and PTFE RCA/phono connectors, ChordOhmic speaker connectors (both spade and 4mm banana), USB types A and B and now, BNC connectors along with DIN/XLR connecting pins. C-series, HDMI and streaming cables, plus mini-jack connectors remain unchanged.
