40 Years Of Cable Perfection

40 Years Of Cable Perfection

QED are celebrating 40 years of British cable excellence with the release of three outstanding cables that correspond with QED's long-established 'good-better-best' philosophy. QED's Performance, Reference and Signature Audio 40 analogue cables all share the exact same geometry and construction patterns but with increasingly high quality materials in each cable. Performance represents a cost-effective alternative, Reference strikes the perfect balance of performance vs diminishing returns and Signature proudly represents the ideal 'cost no object' approach.

HifiCables

"An impressive stereo interconnect that ushers through a high-quality sound... Tunes are engaging and balanced with an impressive level of detail"

Best Cable Loom

[Combined with Signature Revelation] "this cable combo was applauded for its smooth vocal sound and crisp, finessed treble. Moreover, it offers an open and even sound with a coherence and sense of balance that's rare at the price"

QED's Reference range introduces a ground-breaking arrival with the Audio 40 analogue interconnect. The Reference 40 retains all the rhythm of the original Reference cables but is designed primarily for low capacitance for an unforgettably tight sound. The Audio 40 celebrates four decades of fine cable workmanship from the UK's best cable manufacturer. 

The innovative Complimentary Conductor Technology™ utilises two conductors of different diameters to carry the same audio signal. This has the effect of providing an alternative path for high frequency audio components which might otherwise become time smeared in a single audio pathway. The dielectric is made from Foamed Polyethylene has been used to cut down on the amount of audio signal energy lost due to cable capacitance.

The QED Reference Audio 40 RCA plugs feature an Analoc™ locking plug design, a low eddy current which swaps the usual large volume brass body for small high purity copper conductors. Each plug is 24k gold-plated for a perfect connection, anti-tarnish qualities, long-lasting low contact resistance and cuts down or eliminates the tendency for the changing magnetic field in the conductor to induce eddy currents which can affect the micro timing of the audio signal.

QED Reference Audio 40 Features

  • Tick Silver Plated 99.999% Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) conductors with foamed PE dielectric
  • Tick Asymmetrical twisted pair geometry featuring independent dual layer screening – protects delicate signals against interference from external high voltages and currents
  • Tick OFC shield for electromagnetic screening
  • Tick Gold plated QED Analoc™ RCA plugs
  • Tick QED Lifetime Guarantee
