Clear the path – Chord Company's ClearwayX [£15/m] just went to the day spa for a rejuvenation treatment with XPLE insulation aka cross-linked polythylene for "benefits in phase stability over earlier materials, bringing noticeable sound quality improvements during our testing. ClearwayX's XLPE-insulated conductors are built from multi-strand oxygen-free copper and arranged as twisted pair to reduce interference. The two conductors are protected with a layer of soft PVC to correctly space the shielding in relation to the conductors and minimize mechanically induced noise."
