OCC is often referred to as continuous casting as the cable is one continuous single crystal which allow the electrons to flow easily through it. With standard copper, when magnified the copper contains millions of crystals, with the flow of electricity having to pass through each individual crystal. This then reduces the flow of electrons through the cable. OCC is the best copper conductor available as the cable strands are one continuous crystal, meaning the electricity can flow through it easily, allowing for elections to flow without impedance. It has taken a huge degree of R&D to facilitate the “bending” of extruded silver over OCC, while retaining that true Titan Audio sound, however we felt that this was an important step, as it offered our customers a cable that is much closer sonically to our reference Nemesis range, whilst also keeping the price competitive. Innovation is always at the forefront of Titan Audio’s R&D department, and this cable is a true definition of that work.
Chimera Power Cord
The Titan Audio Chimera power cord is the third 1.5 metre cable in the Level 2 range (UK version shown). Designed to be used with source components, the Chimera is a multi purpose cable as its excellent current delivery, due to its construction and design, allows you to see vast improvements across a range of components.The Chimera cable is constructed with extruded silver over OCC single crystal copper. Adding to this, not only is the cable meticulously designed, but the diabetic was given the same attention. Therefore we chose to use PTFE or teflon as it is widely regarded as the best dialectic and one of the lowest constants currently available and the next best thing to free air.
The Chimera, like the rest our range, acts as a filter against disturbances in the AC mains supply. This results in much lower background noise (creating inky black silences), cleaner and sweeter sound in the high frequencies and more depth and control in the bass frequencies. It also leads to enhanced detail retrieval.
The Chimera cable is twisted, and, like the Elektra & Eros models is sheathed in a PTFE dialectic with aluminium foil and a drain wire to reduce the effect of RFI and EMI interference, both mains borne and airborne. It is sheathed in an attractive black woven material and it is fitted with a very high quality silver plated MS HD mains plug and a bespoke silver plated IEC Plug.
