A pair of dual data BNC cables to enhance the sound of the Chord Blu MkII and MScaler when used with Chord DACs.
The music from the Chord Blu MkII or MScaler and Chord DAC combinations is simply stunning but to hear the combination when RF interference has been removed takes it to a whole new level. The WAVE Storm Reference BNC cables are designed to allow this to happen and I think they succeed. But don’t take my word for it, see below for what customers are saying. The cables have been reviewed on the Audio Bacon review site – we were pleased that the reviewer bought a pair of WAVE STORM Reference BNC cables after the review for his own use. We think that says it all!
Clicking the ‘PURCHASE’ button will bring up cable finishes options for selection.
Many identify the effects of RF interference as a harsh sound similar to digital glare which ultimately makes the music sound fatiguing. The presence of RF noise can sometimes be mistaken for detail or a widened sound stage but this is merely an artefact of the interference and is not true detail. Many say that the presence of RF is most easily recognised when it is eradicated. In other words listen with your normal cables and then try the WAVE Storm reference cables. Most people say that they hear an immediate difference saying the music sounds darker, more relaxed and with more detail coming through. Owners of the cables also report that the bass is deeper and has more detail. A vague desire to turn the volume down is instead replaced by a desire to turn the volume up which in my experience is always a sure sign that the RF noise has been eliminated from the system. Indeed even with higher volume levels the music somehow does not appear ‘loud’. Rock music actually sounds like rock music should and classical music can be allowed to be played at realistic concert levels, all without harshness.
Read the comments below or on out Customer Comments page to see what the WAVE Storm Reference cables have done for their Blu MkII or Hugo MScaler and Dave systems.
The cables are designed and manufactured in the Vale of Belvoir in rural Leicestershire. You are very welcome to make an appointment to listen to the WAVE Storm Reference BNC cables with our Chord Blu2 MScaler or our Hugo MScaler and Dave DAC. Please bring your own BNC cables and CDs for a direct comparison with the WAVE cables. Email Nick (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange a demonstration session.
At the heart of the WAVE Storm BNC cables is a 5N (99.999%) pure solid silver conductor to allow a strong digital signal. A foil screen is incorporated for high frequency shielding together with a silver plated mesh screen. The result is a true 75 ohm cable.
High quality BNC connectors are used and these are silver soldered throughout with particular attention to providing a full circumference solder connection to the sheathing for STORM Reference grade performance.
Each of the WAVE Storm Reference BNC cables incorporates 20 ferrites to filter out RF interference. These ferrites are carefully selected to target the specific problem frequencies. The ferrites are also tightly fitting on the cables which increases their effectiveness. The WAVE ferrites can be contrasted with clip on split ferrites which are often targeting the wrong frequencies which are loose fitting. Clip on ferrites also pinch the dielectric and the screen is brought closer to the central conductor at the pinch points resulting in a changed cable characteristic.
Cable appearance choices are available when adding the cables to the cart.
The price is per 1m pair inclusive of worldwide tracked delivery and UK tax.
Within the EU the WAVE STORM cables are delivered in a wood box which is intended to be able to be useful for storing other items after the cables have been delivered. Due to courier costs outside the EU the cables are delivered in a robust double wall cardboard box and foam liner.
All our cables are custom made and delivery is therefore normally within 10 to 14 days. After order and payment you will be notified by email when your cables are starting manufacture and you will be notified again with tracking information when the cables are dispatched.
Try the cables for 14 days and if you don’t notice a difference send them back undamaged and in the original packaging for a full refund.
“I am very happy as the cables seems to remove the last trace of digital harshness.”

“Received yesterday my Wave cables (naked). They look and feel much more robust than all of my heavily ferrited cables (including Chord and Canare). The sound is darker than anything I have tested before (and probably because of that feels more open). Definitely a keeper. Thank you Nick.”
– Alexander, Sweden
