The QED Performance Audio 40 shares details of construction and geometry with the award winning Reference and Signature Audio 40 analogue interconnects- missing only the most expensive components- making it a great value stereo cable. Using QED's Complementary Conductor Technology, Anamate RCA plugs and floating Ferrite insulation, the Performance Audio 40 provides timing and detail at a level rarely delivered by even the most expensive of analogue interconnects.
The floating Ferrite jacket is used to absorb very high frequency noise components outside the audible band that would have an adverse effect on the micro-timing of the audio signal. Such timing errors disrupt frequencies, and the signal sent by your source equipment will not be accurately replicated. The QED Anamate plug has a hollow oxygen free copper central pin to improve high frequency detail. A unique low mass plug design, using two small, high purity copper ground leaves is used to reduce eddy currents that would otherwise oppose signal flow. The Performance Audio 40 utilises two 99.999% Oxygen Free Copper conductors of different diameters to carry the same audio signal. This provides an alternative path for high frequency audio components which might otherwise become time smeared in a single audio pathway.
The QED Performance Audio 40 represents phenomenal value for money.

||What HiFi 5 Stars
"We are impressed with the space and cleanliness the QED offers our system." "That soundstage is wide-open vertically as much as it is horizontally. It helps vocals sound full-bodied and weighty, but with lots of breathing space above them, too; essentially it is more natural sounding." "There's great expression in the sound too, dynamically and rhythmically." "If you covet space and detail with sure but nimble footwork and heaps of insight, consider your search complete."
