ChorAlloy – It's the Chord Company's new multi-layer plating tech providing "a significant upgrade over our previous silver plating to mark a major step forward in connector performance. Its myriad benefits include much lower intermodulation, full solderability and crucially, a tarnish-free finish." The new ChorAlloy-plated connectors and plugs are already available on the VEE3 and PTFE RCA/phono connectors, ChordOhmic speaker connectors (spade and 4mm banana), USB types A and B and BNC connectors along with DIN/XLR connecting pins.
