The Anthem 2 cables are a complete departure from the complex cable geometry and woven configuration of the original Anthem. Although appearing to be a far simpler design, performance is enhanced by the introduction of an extremely advanced multi-layer shielding system. The central conductor core is a multi-stranded silver-plated design. It is surrounded by low density Teflon insulation and a tri-layer silver-plated flat ribbon weave shielding system, similar to that used on the Chord Indigo.
The design and construction of the cable allows it to accurately transfer the subtle micro-dynamic signals that give all the clues about musical performance. The noise floor is significantly reduced and, after a relatively lengthy burn-in time, tonal bandwidth is both wide and neutral.
The shielding system ensures a remarkably consistent performance from system to system. Our research and extensive listening tests convinced us that this is not just a cable for high end systems. Connecting a relatively inexpensive system with an Anthem 2 can produce genuinely surprising results.
