Description

QED Reference XLR 40 is designed primarily to minimise jitter which has been identified by QED as a major factor affecting 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-ConductorTM’ technology which reduces signal to ground capacitance to vanishingly low levels.

Features & Benefits

Award Winning Heritage

Reference XLR 40 builds on the multi-award winning Audio 40 range of products, now available in XLR form. 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.

Professional Standard Neutrik plugs

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. They are particularly suited to QED’s Tri-ConductorTM geometry due to the additional ground spring contacts which make for better shell ground continuity for the unique electrostatic screen which is only connected at the source end of the cable.

Just Listen

Silver plated conductors, LDPE dielectrics and legendary build quality combine to create audible sonic improvements. We urge you to compare Reference XLR 40 not only to your favourite cable but also alternative brands and models at any price!

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.

Unique Tri-conductor Technology

QEDs unique Tri-Conductor 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 vanishingly low levels affording the cable improved common mode rejection of mains hum pickup over ordinary “hot cold and screen” cables. This geometry is particularly effective in pro hi-fi audio applications when connecting pre and power amps using balanced cables or high end streamers to DACs using digital XLR AES/EBU.

QED CABLES

Founded by Bob Abraham and Ian Vine in 1973; QED has, over the past 40 years, acquired unparalleled knowledge and experience of hi-fi and home cinema cables and connectivity.

We can also legitimately claim that, during this period, we have changed people’s perspectives about hi-fi cables. Consumers no longer believe that ‘bell wire will do’ or that ‘any old cable will be fine’. This understanding that cable quality is important and makes a real difference to your enjoyment began with the launch of the QED 79 strand speaker cable in 1978. QED’s reputation for both innovation and technical excellence is known throughout the world. The latest computer aided design techniques allow our research and development team to keep pace with technological advances and deliver products that achieve the highest levels of performance and reliability. This is why QED speaker cables and interconnects are recommended by so many of the world’s leading manufacturers of hi-fi and home theatre equipment, and also why so many of our products have won prestigious awards. For your convenience, and to better understand the different cable products we offer, we have divided them into four separate ranges: Profile, Performance, Reference and Supremus.
