Everything you listen to has a flow and musical rightness, it’s like the other Tuned ARAY cables, there’s a real connection with the music. One of the really pronounced things about the performance of Tuned ARAY cables is their remarkable consistency in terms of their performance characteristics.

Tuned ARAY cables appear to dramatically reduce noise levels within the systems they are used in. The result of this is music with extraordinary levels of detail, dynamics, and coherence. This is true of Tuned ARAY analogue cables, digital cables, USB cables, and streaming/Ethernet cables.

The Sarum Tuned ARAY Streaming cable is the result of experimentation. Chord have already been able to demonstrate just how effective Tuned ARAY cables are when used in USB configuration and the same is true of Sarum Tuned ARAY Streaming cables.

In a way, the Sarum Tuned ARAY Streaming cable is the most impressive of all and because of the way Tuned ARAY works; connecting a Tuned ARAY cable to the streaming device will have a dramatic effect. Tuned ARAY cables are not length dependent and despite the inevitable connections between streaming device and router, the Tuned ARAY will work on all the cables right back to the router.

Chord tested the Sarum Tuned ARAY streaming cable in a whole variety of systems. As a straight connection between streamer and router, as a connection between streamer and pre-installed streaming cable and as a connection between streamer and signal carried over the mains. In every case, the improvement was utterly typical of what Tuned ARAY cables do. Music is simply so much more coherent and involving. This can transform the sound of both WAV and FLAC files and the results with high-resolution downloads are simply stunning.

Anyone streaming their music to a decent system really does need to try the Sarum Tuned ARAY Streaming cable. The proof is in the listening. Listen to the Sarum Tuned ARAY Streaming cable with: Got any reggae sitting on your NAS? Bob Marley is good. Take a listen and then take another listen with the Sarum Tuned ARAY Streaming cable in place.


The Sarum Tuned ARAY Streaming cable is not a conventional streaming/Ethernet cable; it does not rely on twisted pair conductor geometry, it’s a design that has been built to carry data to an audio streamer, making use of the design work used to produce Sarum Digital Tuned ARAY co-axial and USB cables. It employs an extremely high-quality sub-miniature coaxial high-speed cable for all critical signal paths.

The Sarum Tuned ARAY Streaming cable is built to the same very high specification as other Sarum cables. The copper conductors are micro polished prior to being plated with silver and insulation is gas foamed PTFE. Shielding is a dual-layer high-density silver-plated braid and heavy gauge foil, and is certainly the most effective Chord use. The shielding is protected with a PTFE outer jacket.


All connections are soldered rather than crimped and the RJ45 connector has been chosen to allow the conductors to be securely attached without any compression to the conductors. The Tuned ARAY conductor configuration requires a high degree of accuracy during the build process.

To produce such a high standard of performance, precision machinery is employed to prepare the individual cables for assembly.  Once the individual conductors have been prepared, assembly is carried out by hand. The assembly requires a high degree of accuracy and is complex and time consuming.


Any high-quality streaming device or transport/DAC that requires a streaming/Ethernet cable. Regardless of the perceived wisdom with regard to streaming cables, the Sarum Tuned ARAY Streaming cable brings flow, coherence, dynamics and detail that put together make music more alive and more involving.
