Chord Company has been designing, building (and refining) award-winning audio and video cables in England since 1985. Cables are not and never have been just an accessory.

Chord Electronics first took flight from the aviation world, where engineering without limits means uncompromising standards. This concept designed by company owner John Franks has helped shaped their philosophy since the company’s inception in 1989. Their first amplifiers were supplied to the BBC, followed by world-leading studios including Abbey Road, Sony Music (New York) and The Royal Opera House in London. Their reputation within the professional world generated demand for a domestic range encompassing the design, engineering and build standards demanded of the finest pro equipment. Today, they apply proprietary technologies to all of their British-made products and proudly deliver studio-grade audio performance across the entire Chord range.

They’ve incorporated every genuine advancement into the latest Harbeth speakers which are, as you can hear for yourself, in a class of their own for natural sound.
Ever since their early days, Naim have ignored trends and trusted their own sense of what matters most in music playback. No matter how vanishingly low they've managed to make distortion and jitter or how well they've controlled power supply noise and interference, they will always make their final judgement on a product in the listening room. Every component has to earn its place. When they listen it’s not just for technical competencies. It’s about being able to forget that you’re listening to hi-fi at all and becoming immersed in a complete experience, feeling all the emotion that the artist intended when they first created the music. Unlike most other consumer electronics, Naim Audio products are not designed to be replaced in three to four years. Buying a Naim Audio product is an investment in many years of incredible musical experiences. It’s a choice to make music a central part of your life.
