Chord Co Burndy for Naim
Tuesday, August 4, 2020

Naim Audio owners might be interested in a new range of Chord Company designed and built Burndy upgrade cables, the dedicated power supply interconnects (carrying signal and power) used in many of Naim’s high-end products. Every Chord Company Burndy cable is handmade to order and uses the company’s range-topping shielding system, comprising silver-plated copper conductors, the flagship Taylon proprietary insulation (except NAP 300 7-pin/NAP 500 9-pin variants which have a thicker-gauge conductor with their own proprietary insulation), an acoustic braid, plus an anti-EMF braid, all protected by a black nylon outer jacket.

The Burndy design project was inspired by a number of factors: the original ChordBurndy developments, the Burndy-equipped Naim Audio NAP 300 amplifier used extensively in Chord Company’s listening room and the company’s origins in designing and building audio cables for Naim when it first formed back in 1985. With the NAP 300 available during the development of the Burndy cables, Chord Company found its time-proven proprietary shielding upgrades offered the biggest improvements. The Chord Company Burndy cables are available in custom lengths and in the following configurations:

Single cable variants:
555 (no.2) 7-pin
555 (no.1) 10-pin
XPS 11-pin
CDS power Burndy 13-pin
NAC 252 15-pin
NAC 52 16-pin
SNAXO/S-Line 17-pin
552 19-pin

Cable pair variants:
NAP 300 7-pin
NAP 500 9-pin

Depending on the Naim equipment being used, there can be between seven to nineteen internal cables, so prices are, therefore, dependent on the number of wires used and the related build time. Chord Company’s Burndy cables are available now priced from £1,600.
