QED Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable
QED Silver Anniversary XT, runaway winner of the 2005 WHAT HIFI? Award for 'Best Speaker Cable' and Cabling 'Product of the year'. The new cable successfully introduces QED's high end 'X–Tube' technology into a mid-priced product for the first time. The precise cylindrical construction of the silver-plated, 99.999% pure, oxygen free copper cables reduces the distortion caused by 'skin effect'. The result is a completely neutral speaker cable that allows good hi-fi and home cinema equipment to shine.
The cable is a standard 'figure 8' configuration and is attractively finished, with each silver-plated core visible through a flexible 3.9mm diameter clear polyethylene outer sheath. For ease of assembly and to ensure correct speaker 'phasing' the inner spacers, which maintain the cylindrical configuration, are each coloured coded red or white and are 'crushable' to allow straightforward crimping with 'Airloc' speaker plugs.reviews:
"Take an Award-winning speaker cable. Double up on the connectors to make it biwire, and the result is this version of QED's Silver Anniversary XT. Does it sound good? You bet.", "This is a great cable and a clear class-leader. Well done QED...again!"
"What a great speaker cable this is. This is the XT's second Product of the Year Award, and it's richly deserved. No rivals can match the QED for resolution and transparency, and it's priced sensibly, too, as well as being balanced enough to suit a wide range of systems. Well done, QED!"features and specifications:
