Chord Company Offers Upgraded Burndy Cables for Naim Audio

Two new models, BurndyX and BurndyT, have been designed to provide Burndy-equipped Naim Audio devices with a trusted upgrade path.

Chord Company has launched new and upgraded versions of its British-designed-and-built Burndy cables for Naim Audio equipment. There are two new models, BurndyX and BurndyT, both of which have been designed to provide Burndy-equipped Naim Audio devices with a trusted upgrade path.

Chord Company BurndyT Cable for Naim Audio

The new upgraded BurndyT (from $2136.23/£1,760) directly replaces the previous generation model, while the BurndyX (from $1068.11/£880) is an all-new entry-level cable that brings Chord Company’s near-40-year cable design and UK manufacturing expertise to a more accessible price point.

The new models build on Chord Company’s debut Burndy cables (2020) with extensive upgrades, including the company’s proprietary insulation XLPE in the entry-level BurndyX.

The BurndyX cable is handmade to order and benefits from multi-stranded silver-plated OFC conductors (with XLPE), complemented by high-density, silver-plated braid and foil combination high-frequency shielding. The complex umbilical link is terminated with the company’s unique, crimped ChorAlloy-plated connector pins. The BurndyX is designed to connect all compatible Naim Audio products, including the 12-way and 23-way- (Type 3 and Type 4) equipped models.

The BurndyT cables are hand-built to exacting standards by Chord Company’s U.K. technicians, using precision-engineered components finished with a complex termination process. They feature the company’s flagship Taylon-insulated conductors and multiple, layered screens that protect delicate signals from high-frequency noise.

The BurndyT connector pins are also ChorAlloy-plated: a multi-metal plating system that provides a significant musical improvement over previous gold/silver-plating techniques and one that offers a major step forward in Burndy performance.

As part of the Burndy upgrade program, the Bridge shorting plug ($606.88/£500), which works with unused (Naim Audio) power supply upgrade ports to reduce high-frequency noise, has also been updated to include proprietary ChorAlloy-plated connector pins.
