Rather than being a simple development of the much-liked Carnival Silver, the SilverScreen is more akin to Chordâ€™s upmarket Epic and Signature cables, using similar shielding technology. Chord has decided to revert to high-purity copper as the cableâ€™s conductor rather than the silver-plated variety of its direct predecessor. The result is a detailed and authoritative cable that has the refinement and dynamics to work well in a wide range of systems. Add a remarkably cohesive presentation â€“ where no part of the frequency range stands out â€“ and impressive timing into the mix and you have what is a truly standout cable for the money." ***BEST SPEAKER CABLE, WHAT HI-FI SOUND & VISION AWARDS 2010*** â€œInspired by Chord's award winning Signature speaker cable, Carnival SilverScreen sets new standards of performance. A truly cost effective upgrade to any hi-fi or home cinema system. â€œChord has decided to revert to high-purity copper as the cableâ€™s conductor rather than the silver-plated variety of its direct predecessor.

There's an immense sense of separation and clarity during the opening of the The Streets' Blinded By Lights. An unflappable cable, and ideal fit for a wide range of systems". ***What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision - July 2008*** Up until now, Chords experimentation with shielding systems on speaker cables has produced products in the mid to high-end of their range. The Carnival SilverScreen dramatically changes that. During the development of the Signature and the Epic speaker cables Chord connected both cables to some surprisingly inexpensive systems, the results were extremely impressive. Shielded speaker cable produces a remarkably consistent series of improvements regardless of the system they are connected to. Chord Carnival SilverScreen offers a set of performance characteristics that make it unique at its price point. The oxygen free copper multi stranded conductors used in Carnival SilverScreen have been borrowed from the Chord Carnival Classic. Likewise the low-density polyethylene insulation and twisted pair configuration. The conductors are surrounded by a soft PVC casing that provides excellent mechanical damping characteristics. This is surrounded by a heavily overlapped dual foil shielding system and this in turn is surrounded and protected by a translucent PVC outer jacket, again with excellent mechanical damping characteristics. As with the Signature and Epic speaker cables the shield fitted to the Carnival SilverScreen reduces interference, lowers the noise floor and brings big improvements to the entire frequency range of the system it is fitted to. Timing is improved, as is the dynamic performance. Levels of detail are increased but what really matters is the coherency with which this information is presented. Carnival SilverScreen can dramatically improve the musical abilities of almost any system it is fitted to. However, given the price, Carnival SilverScreen should also be serious considered for use in home cinema and multi-channel music systems. The sheer number of components and the amount of cabling involved in a typical multi-channel home cinema and music system makes a compelling case for the use of a shielded speaker cable. For a typical home cinema system using Carnival SilverScreen for the front three speakers and Carnival Classic for the rear speakers will produce outstanding results. The fact that both cables share identical conductors will help to bring a real coherence to the sound of the system. Carnival SilverScreen should be installed so that the writing on the cable reads from the amplifier towards the speakers. The Chord Carnival SilverScreen connects your Amplifier to your speakers.
