The QED Reference XLR 40 cables build on the award winning Audio 40 range of products. XLR 40 was designed primarily for low capacitance as this has been identified by QED as a major factor which leads to a high fidelity experience. Further steps have been taken to eliminate minute timing errors in the cable by the use of a special floating Zn/Mn ferrite jacket alongside use of QEDs unique Tri-Conductor technology reducing signal to ground capacitance to vanishingly low levels.

QED have joined forces with world renowned professional audio connector supplier Neutrik (UK) to bring you an innovative new XLR balanced interconnect cable with legendary build quality and reliability. Neutrik XX-14 Nickel Series XLR gold plated connectors are provided as standard with Reference XLR 40 cables. These connectors are rugged and reliable and are the connector of choice for audio professionals around the world. 

Floating Ferrite Jacket

Floating Ferrite Jacket

The unique floating ferrite jacket absorbs high frequency noise signal components outside the audio band. When measured using high frequency measurement equipment, Audio 40 products convey a comparably cleaner and tighter signal pattern when its special Zn/Mn ferrite jacket is present. This has a beneficial effect on audio signal micro-timing, reducing digital jitter and timing errors to an ultra low level.

Tri-Conductor Technology

Tri-Conductor Technology

This technology uses a third Silver plated 99.999% OFC conductor which is integrally twisted alongside the similarly constructed signal pair to carry the ground return currents. This reduces signal to ground capacitance to low levels affording the cable improved common mode rejection of mains hum pickup. This geometry is effective in pro Hi-Fi audio applications when connecting pre and power amps using balanced cables.

I use these cables between my Meridian pre amp and power amp and the difference was subtle but noticeable. They bring a more realistic feel to the music, a great update.
