Like the Signature Plus the Chord Indigo Plus is fitted with a acrylic plug casing, precision machined to an exacting tolerance and polished to a mirror finish.
Acrylic was chosen for its ability to control resonances around the RCA/phono plug contact areas, and in comparisons with conventional RCA/phono plugs, the combination of low mass contact area and the resonance damping acrylic plug casing produced a markedly cleaner and more detailed sound.
The Indigo Plus is capable of bringing dazzling clarity across the entire frequency range of a system. Its ability to transmit micro-dynamic information so accurately at frequency extremes, coupled with its exceptional interference and noise rejection capabilities, makes the Chord Indigo Plus an ideal connection for anyone wishing to explore the potential performance that SACD, DVD audio, contemporary CD players and high end stand-alone phono stages are capable of producing.
The Indigo Plus also benefits from the addition of a secondary multi-stranded, silver-plated return path. The multi-stranded, silver-plated signal and return paths used on the original Indigo remain and like the Indigo, the Indigo Plus will transmit signal information over an extremely wide bandwidth.
The addition of the secondary return path brings improvements to timing, dynamics and detail as well as depth and sound staging. As with the Signature Plus, these improvements not only enhance the enjoyment of music but also contribute to the high fidelity performance of any system they are fitted to
CONDUCTORS: Pseudo-balanced multi-stranded silver-plated signal and return conductors, plus secondary silver-plated signal return conductor.
CONFIGURATION: Separately shielded signal and return conductors. Single signal and dual return conductor configuration. Improves bass detail and definition, music sounds natural and coherent.
CONDUCTOR INSULATION: Low density foamed PTFE outperforms conventional extruded PTFE. We believe that to obtain the most neutral tonal characteristic from silverplated conductors it is vital to use PTFE insulation. Insulation is applied to strict tolerance to minimise unwanted mechanical noise.
SHIELDING: High frequency effective, dual layer shielding, applied individually to signal and signal return conductors. Heavy gauge overlapped foil shield surrounded by 100% coverage silver-plated braid. JACKET: PTFE shielding surround and external braided jacket.
TERMINATIONS: Chord ultra low mass RCA (phono) plugs. PTFE insulated silver-plated centre pin, ultra low mass silver-plated signal return surround. Plug design avoids the use of any direct pressure on cable, eliminating changes to cable impedance. Precision machined acrylic plug surround controls unwanted resonance. Also available fitted with XLR plugs.
