Performance Audio 40i with QED Solid Complementary Conductor Technology and Anamate RCA plug
Performance Audio 40i builds on the strengths of the original Performance Audio 40 and delivers an even more enjoyable and convincing sound without affecting its great value for money. Using the principles outlined in the industry-defining Genesis Report and surprisingly original technology (including groundbreaking Solid Complementary Conductors and Anamate plugs), QED has created a link between itself and its nominal competition that distances itself a lot. Just like the original Performance Audio 40 did six years ago.
Solid Complementary Conductor technology
Under the PVC sheath, the braided foil screen, the ferrite sheath, and the foamed polyethylene dielectric are two solid, electrically insulated and oxygen-free copper conductors of different diameters. Using two completely separate conductors (one copper, one silver plated) to carry the audio signal provides the most complete, least compromised route for the audio information to travel. The resulting sound has greater scale and three-dimensionality than previously achieved with an interconnect of this price, helping QED maintain its reputation as both an innovator and a class leader.
Rod RCA plugs
The ‘Anamat’ arrangement of the plugs, in which high-purity copper conductors are gold-plated, gives Performance Audio 40i both the low contact resistance needed to produce exciting sonic results and a much longer lifespan than unplated copper alone. By using high purity copper conductors for the pin section and small contact areas for the return ring, the resistance in the signal path is reduced. It also prevents eddy currents from forming in the plug body, which improves signal transmission.
Ferrite insulation provides measurable improvements in both the amount of high-frequency signal noise rejected by the cable and the amount of relevant signal information lost. Improved accuracy of high frequency impulse transmission positively affects timing and both wide and low level dynamics.
The Performance 40i has many technological features and we believe it represents incredible value for money. The easiest way to understand what we mean is to hear it for yourself – we’re sure you’ll prefer it to any alternative cable, such as the price.
