Using identical conductors for signal and return is a very easy was of improving the performance of an audio cable – something Chord have been doing for many years. With many XLR cables, the two signal wires end up being used to carry the hot (in phase) and the cold (out of phase) signals, while the earth/return connection is made with the shield.
The Chord company gurus think there’s a better way, so they add a third identical conductor to carry the earth/return signal. It takes the shield out of the circuit and by doing so they can seriously reduce unwanted interference. All of their XLR analogue cables are built this way.
They also fit the Tuned ARAY conductor geometry, protective black braiding and ChorAlloy-plated Neutrik XLR plugs.
By using separate shielding on all three conductors and the Tuned ARAY conductor geometry, Chord have been able to produce a neutral and musically transparent XLR cable.
