QED QE2453 Reference Audio 40 1m Cable
The Audio 40 cable range is an entirely new design concept from QED labs. The cordage is designed primarily for low capacitance as this has been identified by QED as a significant factor which leads to a high fidelity experience, making for a tight sound and retaining the rhythm of the original piece. Add our Complementary Conductor TechnologyTM for high frequency detail and our Analoc TechnologyTM to maximise signal integrity and the result is what we feel to be the most innovative interconnect ever made by QED. Please see our 'cables matter' section below for more in-depth information on this ground breaking design.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
COMPLEMENTARY CONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGYTM
This innovation 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.
FOAMED POLYETHYLENE DIELECTRIC
Foamed Polyethylene has a low dielectric constant and has been used to cut down on the amount of audio signal energy lost due to cable capacitance.
ANALOCTM LOCKING RCA PLUGS
The new QED Analoc™ plug is a low eddy current design featuring small high purity copper
conductors in place of the usual large volume brass body found in ordinary high quality plugs. This 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.
Silver Plated 99.999% Oxygen Free Copper (SPOFC) conductors with LDPE dielectric
OFC shield giving 100% electromagnetic screening
Zn/Mn ferrite Jacket
Gold plated QED ‘Analoc™’ RCA plugs
Inductance: 0.37 uH/m
Loop resistance: 0.072 Ω/m
Dissipation Factor: 0.0059
QED Lifetime Guarantee
Reference and Signature Audio40 analogue cables use ‘Analoc™’ plugs with a built-in locking feature so that as the barrel is screwed up tight, the clamping force is increased making for a super noise free and secure connection.
To correctly fit ‘Analoc™’ plugs, the outer locking cylinder of the plug must be screwed forward, to loosen the gripping ‘blades’, whilst the plug is pushed into place on the socket. The locking cylinder should then be screwed back in order to lock the plug onto the socket. Needless to say, users must always remember to do this when connecting/disconnecting the cables.
