Performance Audio 40 shares nearly the same structure and geometry as the award-winning Reference and Signature Audio 40 analog interconnects, removing only the most expensive components. QED’s Complementary Conductor ™ Technology, Anamate ™ Using RCA plugs and floating Ferrite insulation, Performance Audio 40 provides a level of timing and detail that even the most expensive analog interconnects rarely provide.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
FLOATING INNER FERRITE JACKET
A special floating Zn/Mn Ferrite jacket is used in the Audio 40 cable to absorb very high frequency noise components outside the audible band, which has an adverse effect on the microtiming of the audio signal. With cables, our goal is to replicate the input signal at the cable output as closely as possible. Timing errors mean that the frequencies are distorted and the signal sent by your source equipment is not being replicated correctly. When measured at very high frequencies, Audio 40 cables exhibit cleaner signal transmission than ordinary audio interconnects.
ANAMATE TM RCA PLUGS
QED AnamateTM plug is a variation of the innovative QED Analoc TM RCA plug found in the Reference and Signature Audio 40. A hollow oxygen-free copper center pin is used to improve high frequency detail, in the same way as our X-Tube TM speaker cables. To reduce the rotating ‘eddy currents’ (which would otherwise oppose the signal flow), a unique low-mass plug design is used that uses two small, high-purity copper ground leaves. Like putting wooden wheels on a Ferrari, traditional RCA phono plugs have the potential to undo all the hard work our carefully designed cord has done. With Anamate TM and Analoc TM RCA plugs, the integrity of the audio signal is maintained throughout.
SUPPLEMENTARY CONDUCTORTM TECHNOLOGY
Retains the rhythm of the original track, improving timing and detail. Unlike traditional analog interconnects, Performance Audio 40 uses two 99.999% Oxygen-Free Copper conductors of different diameters to carry the same audio signal. This has the effect of providing an alternate path for high frequency audio components, otherwise a single audio path can become time-stained.
Performance Audio 40 represents exceptional value for money. We were surprised by our extensive listening tests, comparing them to competing products at much higher price points! We recommend that you compare not only with your favorite cable, but also with alternative brands and models at any price!
