EpicX (prev Epic/Epic Twin) has been part of our speaker cable range for many years – it’s a shielded cable that works with pretty much every style of speaker. From mid-price to high end, EpicX brings detail, dynamics, resolution and coherence to every speaker it’s used with. It’s particularly good at bringing control and definition across the bass frequencies and is the ideal cable solution for floor-standing speakers.
EpicX is based on our multi-award-winning Chord OdysseyX speaker cable. Both cables use 12 AWG oxygen free copper negative and positive conductors, silver-plated and insulated with XLPE before an outer PVC jacket is applied. The key difference (and performance leap) is due to the effective high frequency combination shield and translucent PVC jacket that is added to EpicX.
EpicX is the perfect partner for Chord Company ChordOhmic plugs, neatly complemented by the new ‘trousers’. In addition to factory terminations, the cable can also be professionally terminated by participating Chord Company dealers equipped with the new ChordOhmic Hex Gun tool; the service not only delivers tailor-made lengths, but it also jumps the build queue at the factory. Existing cables can also be upgraded with the new plugs, trousers and terminations, too.
