Chord Sarum T

Have anyone tried as I have the sarum t with a mains block connector ?

Several expensive mains cables are not needed as you could use standard shielded or the standard kettle cables after the mains block.

It's a cheaper alternative and problery no difference in SQ ........?

If that were so then why place it between the wall socket and the mains distribution block? Why not the last 1.2m before the mains socket? Whilst I accept that mains leads do seem to have an effect on audio performance, I remain rather sceptical as to why the last metre or so should make any difference when the rest of the mains is wired with standard twin and earth cable. 

The audio impact of changing interconnect or speaker cable is (to my ears, at least) more obviously beneficial. That having been said, I would be interested if Chord would consider making a cable to fit between Radikal and Urika. 

I suppose you could add it before the mains socket ( altough i have not tried ) but as the lead is suppied with the correct connections a mains block suits better connection wise and has more outlet sockets.

The lead stops mains electric noise and if other leads are placed after the chord sarum in theory they could be polluted with rf that is why I suggested shield cables which are cheaper.

I have a Sarum T loom, the mains cable made a huge difference in fact a totally different system that is why I suggested to try with a mains block as the whole system would benifet with one mains lead, the extra mile would be change the other mains cables with shield mains as a precaution against RF issues..?

CHORD can make any cable just ask them.

Get a demo first as your system may not be impacted as mine is but for me in my system the difference is monumental 

I am using a Torus power supply now as I have slightly  better performance but did cost more but gave me other features as well so went down the Torus power route.

As much as I like Chord as a company (great customer service from Nigel as well), I have a feeling that this Taylon thing is more toward marketing than anything else. The material is nonexistent when I run a search on it.

It's Chord's name. You need to hear it.

I'd be tempted if my gear is from the 500 series. As it currently stands, the Chord Sarum T is too good for my system. I am sure it's fantastic though.

agree 100%, a cable can't be more than half the component itself....a powerline for nac 282 and nap 250, chord sarum t for nap 500 and chord music for the statement.

Because in the case of sarum t for nac 282,  the 252 with powerlite is better.

It's all relevant, ask Joe!

"For those familiar with Vertere’s infamous line of products this is big news. The company has developed a reputation for crafting the most technically precise analog replay components in the world. As a result the price is often beyond the reach of even the most dedicated audiophiles. To give an idea, Robb Report recently ran an article called: “Today’s Top Tonearms Can Cost as Much as a Car.” The main feature was the Vertere Reference Tonearm coming in at $36,000 USD."

Average Joe, a Success Story:

House, a Cool $ 1.5 Million. i.e cheapskate!

Car, a modest 350K USD

Veretere's mains Cable, $3,127.96 USD

When it's all said and done, I wonder how it sounds!

Sure wouldn't mind trading places!

Enjoy your Music!

Is that based on actually listening to the two alternatives, presumably you are referring to the Sarum T on the source to preamp or do you mean a power cable?

Either way, although I confess that I have not done that comparison but have owned all of the bits except powerline lite (so will assume poweline full fat on the SupercapDR for the 252) or Sarum T interconnect (so read SSA) though I do have a power cable - and assuming a SupercapDR on the 282 as well, I think that I would probably find the 282 combination preferable 

I do think that the differences are better heard with a 552 though  

analogmusic posted:

well it's still a 2100 GBP cable.

having heard Superlumina Speaker cable, DIN/XLR and then the Super Aray RCA to RCA... I would say one should listen to the Superlumina first.

Having heard all those, too, I'd say you absolutely need to do a comparison between them. They are very different in what they do.

The PL Lite on my 282's SuperCap Dr and NAPSC opened up the soundstage more and made instruments (orchestral in particular) stand out better just like a real concert where even a tambourine can be heard (Albert Hall Tchkovsky Gala on 20 June). I am testing 5m Superlumina speaker cable which just builds further on the improvement trend. I have Witch Hat Din to XLR and SL IC on the nDAC to 282, and Rega Couple 2 on the Aria to 282. £800 Chord on Aria did not work.

I've been running Sarum T streaming cables - upgraded from Sarum TA, so, technically, they were 2 generations old - over the past week from Melco to switch and switch to "the wall" (I'm using a Chord Music from Melco to the KDSM) and I have to say that the improvement to Tidal steaming and internet radio is huge.  Tidal in particular had been "fine" before but, understandably, not a patch on ripped or downloaded music. However, now, it's a much more acceptable proposition - still not as good of course, but way, way better than before.  It'll probably result in me buying less and using Tidal, especially for new releases, rather more.

I prefer the 252 to the 282 in simple terms, but I have heard systems where the 282 sounds better. The source is obviously gong to have a signifcant bearing on the outcome. Also it might actually be better to put the better power chord on a different bit of kit - usually the power amp, perhaps surprisingly.

I expect that I will have the chance to try this fairly soon, and if I do will let you know the result.

it was an exaggeration but 10k power cord exist.  nac 282 costs 5k GBP, chord sarum t power cord costs 2k, so around 40% of the 282. nac 252 costs 6,3 k.

But, actually, given the fairly widespread antipathy towards the 252 on the forum, that might be an interesting comparison. Maybe not clear cut?

widespread antipathy towards the 252?   a minority prefer the 282, it is what i often see on the forum.  like a minority prefer the 250 vs 300.....so if you are in this camp, i can understand putting a sarum t cord on 282.

As for me, i had the 282/hicap and after a 252 : the upgrade in sound quality was immediate for me.  But finally the 252 had not stayed because i discovered the ear 912 preamp which gave me a better tonal balance and fluency, with same dynamics.

But the 252 opened the soundstage, gave more focus and bass vs the 282/hicap and i have not heard something missing .

i see you have chord music streaming cable:  are you satisfied with this cable?  what was your ethernet cable before?  i am curious about investing in chord ethernet later. I had audioquest diamond but sold it and have 2 vodka instead. Maybe i will upgrade the last ethernet to my nds with signature tuned array.  I have signature tuned array interconnects and phono, perhaps i will upgrade to super sarum too, only interconnects .

I would like to make a small suggestion.

Think of changing cables as options to see if they make a difference in your system and if that difference constitutes, to you, an upgrade.  Calling any change an upgrade based on the price of the component suggests expectation bias, whereas an open mind might be a better approach.  I've heard some good expensive cables, but I've also heard some bad ones.

The perception of an upgrade based on the price of any component or cables is certainly a valid observation. It may not necessarily happen all the time but the tendency to favour a particular component or cable and regarding it as a superior design will be prevalent. I have said before that a (fixed) preconceived idea of a better or superior sound from a costlier component or cable may be formed even before a listening session. There is a possibility the impressions may not change after a listen as the preconception might have been firmly entrenched in the mind of the user.

I went from an Audioquest Vodka Ethernet cable on my NDS/555Dr to a Chord Indigo Aray And the Indigo Aray was vastly better. I can't imagine how much better the Chord Music Ethernet is! I have heard the Chord Music analog RCA Interconnect compared to Sarum super Aray and it was a huge difference !  Love to hear what the Chord Music or Sarum T Ethernet sounds like .

When you have some time with the cables, perhaps you could assess the sonic impact of using these Chord AC power cords in your system context for the rest of us?

Bruce

I think that I have had sufficient time to venture some comment now 

Just a bit of background, I mainly listen to vinyl on my LP12 which is a fairly high (if not entirely conventional) specification comprising LP12 with Woodsong wenge plinth, Klimax Radikal, Keel sub-chassis, Urika phono stage, Naim Aro and Linn Krystal cartridge - all enhanced with Tiger-Paw Khan top plate, Tranquility and sKale counterweight.

The Chord Sarum Super ARAY power chord was connected to the Radikal; the Naim amps use Powerlines. The interconnects are Chord Sarum Super ARAY and the speaker cable is NACA5 to Kudos Super 20s.

When I changed the SSA to the Sarum T power chord on the Radikal there were elements of the music that immediately sounded better - clearer and bigger - but overall it was a little less coherent and a bit distracting. I was focusing on the good bits rather than enjoying the music.

I went through the process of changing back and forth a couple of times, and it was apparent that although the cohesion was not quite as good at that time the Sarum T was giving things that the SSA wasn't and it became more compelling, almost demanding that you put on another record.

Also the direction of travel was clearly the right one. It did not take very long before the Sarum T was simply better, and there was no need or desire to swap back to the SSA. As more music was played the sound of the system evolved and things fell into place as more a natural and cohesive presentation, but not as it had been previously with the SSA as it was more of a performance with greater presence. More perceived pace and flow - more real.

The mindset switched to then just enjoying listening to music as I mentioned at the beginning. There have been numerous occasions when I have suddenly thought "Wow - this is amazingly good" without really thinking about why.

The completely stupid thing though was it was very good before the change. I wouldn't want to live without the Sarum T and go back to SSA, but I think that I could - although I would need to listen with a standard cable first and then change up to SSA!! I already know that I could not give up the SSA power cable - as I tried and failed.

Although it is, in some ways, rather annoying and galling that Chord have improved their cable so significantly so recently after the SSA came out, I am actually very pleased that they did.

Chris

Thanks for taking the time to create this thoughtful overview Chris.     In my experience, as you introduce higher resolution products into a system, it can take some time for everything to fall into place.    Now, whether this is really break in on an engineering level, or whether you as the listener need time to become comfortable with the new perspectives on music that your system offers, that is an endless philosophical debate that has no clear answer in my mind.

Enjoy the ride,

Bruce

 

The thing about cables ...

As Touraj of Vertere says (please check his interview on vertere website) : "after the source, there is nothing (amp, preamp, etc) there that can improve on the signal". The only thing that can happen, is interference, modification, changing the signal, effectively ruining the signal.

According to Touraj.

"And cables do that the most"    (ruining the signal) 

Also had a email from Naim that said the same thing.

The better amps from Naim are better (552 better than 282 for example), because they do less damage to the signal. (so 552 does less harm to the signal after the source than a 282)

I did order Chord Music Cables for my system! RCA  Interconnects from Naim NDS to Preamp and XLRs from Preamp to Amp. Big wow!  Not fully burned in yet, but sounded great from the get go! Have gotten a better in the week that they have been installed. Chord has a real winner in these cables. Music flowing from the NDS sound even better now, more real &  life like. Or to put it simply,  much more enjoyable to listen to.

Congrats, Enjoy Your Music!

And the pricing is relevant!

Chord Music RCA from £3800.00 (UK RRP)

Chord Music DIN from £3500.00 (UK RRP
Chord Music XLR from £5500.00 (UK RRP)

 

Wow! 3.5K for the Source

And if one is rocking Naim's , 500/300 Amps, that's two more !!!

3.5 K + 8.0 K = 11.5 K GBP
