Performance Audio 40 shares an almost identical construction and geometry with the award winning Reference and Signature Audio 40 analogue interconnects, omitting only the most expensive components. Performance Audio 40 utilises two 99.999% oxygen free copper conductors of different diameters to carry the same audio signal.

The cable has QED's unique Anamate RCA plugs, these are a variation of the Analoc plugs found in the Reference and Signature ranges, This cable represents phenomenal value for money. Extensive listening tests comparing it against competitor products at much higher price points are astonishing. 

Anamate RCA Plugs

Anamate RCA Plugs

A hollow oxygen free copper central pin is used to improve high frequency detail in the same way as QED's X-Tube speaker cables. To reduce swirling 'eddy currents' that would otherwise oppose signal flow a unique low mass plug design using two small, high purity copper ground leaves is used. Conventional RCA phono plugs have the potential to undo all of the hard work carried out by carefully designed cordage. Anamate plugs ensure the signal is maintained from start to finish.

Ferrite Jacket

Ferrite Jacket

A special floating Zn/Mn Ferrite jacket is used within the Audio 40 cordage to absorb very high frequency noise components outside of the audible band that have an adverse effect on the micro timing of the audio signal. When measured at very high frequencies, Audio 40 cables do exhibit cleaner signal transmission than ordinary audio interconnects.

Conductor Technology

Conductor Technology

Improves timing and detail, retaining the rhythm of the original piece. Unlike conventional analogue interconnects, Performance Audio 40 utilises two 99.999% Oxygen Free Copper 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.
