After a painstaking research period, the final formulation has been proven to deliver long-term stability for very low-voltage connections, performing consistently over all connection types, voltages and frequencies.


Four years in development (and 500 prototypes later!) Chord Company is proud to announce its long-awaited ChordOhmic Transmission Fluid, a highly advanced liquid polymer solution, specifically designed to maximise the surface area of a variety of plug connections, improving their performance.

Developed by an acclaimed industrial chemist and Andante Largo in Japan, the new ChordOhmic Transmission Fluid works by deploying polymers to fill pits and imperfections on the surfaces of connections, creating a greater contact area and, therefore, improving the performance of the connection: the lower the resistance, the higher the current (signal).

ChordOhmic Transmission Fluid is distinguished from other enhancing products, as the formula starts to work at very low voltage thresholds and, when applied carefully, has a very long operational life; the original long-term test cables (built and treated over four years ago) are still significantly outperforming the identical (but untreated) cables, built at the same time.

In a modern hi-fi system, signal levels vary enormously: from the tiny output of a moving coil cartridge (a maximum of approximately 150 microvolts) up to 230 volts on power cables. All these differing signals pass through connectors during their musical journey and these can often be the source of significant signal loss.

The connector has always been an integral part of our designs. Over the years, we have introduced a series of bespoke connectors and continue to look for ways to improve designs. Some of these upgrades have been clearly visible, while others have been internal or involved plating process changes – not seen, but easily heard.

Connecting equipment has issues: plugs and sockets can vary in size between different manufacturers; it is not uncommon to find some sockets and plug combinations are tight, whilst others feel loose.

The basis of a good electrical connection is a good mechanical connection: a greater contact area lowers the contact resistance, creating a better connection and allowing more current (signal) to flow.
