Product Description

The QED speaker cable story began in 1973, with the launch of the world's first specialist speaker cables, QED 42 and 79 strand, now household names in the audio industry. Building on this longstanding British speaker cable heritage, QED embarked on an exhaustive research program into cable parameters which began in 1995 and continues into 2017 with the release of “The Sound of Science”, a 40 page White Paper distilling the research published since 1973 by QED. These reports set out the “top down” design-principles that have resulted most recently in the development of QED XT25 loudspeaker cable – the new class leading standard in budget to mid-range speaker cables.


X-Tube Technology

In loudspeaker cables high pitched sounds are forced to travel towards the outside of the conductor and so are able to use less of the available cross-sectional area as the pitch increases. It means that for high frequencies the resistance of the cable appears to be much higher than it does for lower pitched sounds. The XT25 variation of QED X-Tu Insulation LDPE jacket with 100% coverage of Aluminium Mylar tape wrap Plugs and spades QED Airloc Forte banana plugs. Technology solves these problems by creating a hollow tubular conductor geometry out of individual conductor bunches through which each frequency can pass with equal ease when compared to traditional solid or stranded conductors.


99.999% Oxygen-Free Copper

Speaker cables need to have a large current carrying capacity. If the electrical resistance of the cable is too large, part of the music signal will be lost, causing a detrimental effect on the fidelity of the sound you hear. To stop this from happening we make the resistance of our speaker cables as small as possible. We do this by using the largest practical cross-sectional area of copper within the size constraints of each cable. In order to squeeze the last drop of performance from the conductors we make sure that there are no impurities in the copper which would defeat the object of making them so large. That’s why we use 99.999% oxygen-free copper exclusively.


Low-Loss Dielectric

It is not generally appreciated that the electrical signals moving at or near the speed of light in a wire do so via the medium of electromagnetic (EM) waveforms which exist within the dielectric which surrounds the conductors as well as within the conductors themselves. The movement of electrons along the conductor merely facilitates generation of the EM waveform as their “drift velocity” is only a few centimetres per second. It is therefore important to ensure that the dielectric material used to insulate and protect the central conductors of the speaker cable is of a type which “permits” the establishment of EM waveforms without appreciable loss.


Low DC Resistance

At QED we recognise that low d.c. resistance of the loudspeaker cable is of paramount importance for high-fidelity signal transfer. This is because the speaker presents a frequency dependent load to the amplifier of which the cable forms a variable proportion. If resistance is allowed to be too large then audible changes to the frequency response characteristics of the loudspeaker will be introduced which cannot be corrected for by the amplifier’s negative feedback loop.

Items are shipped according to weight. Lighter items with value less than £35.00 maybe shipped by first or second class post. This is not a traceable service and maybe subject to postal delays so customers are always provided with shipping options that are more assured.

Larger, heavier items are dispatched using one of our other delivery services. Our delivery services will require a signature upon receipt for proof of delivery and can arrive between 8am and 6pm on the day of delivery. We will contact you by phone or email to arrange a convenient date for delivery and then we will usually send you an e-mail on the evening of dispatch that will confirm to you that your order has been dispatched and the delivery service used with links to tracking facilities if appropriate.

If for any reason you are not happy with your order and wish to return it under current Consumer Protection Law within 14 days, OR within our 30 day No Quibble Return Policy, subject to the following conditions:-

Please call us first to discuss why you may wish to return an item. We will take all steps possible to solve your problem / offer you a replacement or exchange product, or a refund. If the goods are to be returned, in all circumstances you must obtain an RMA Number (Return Material Authorization) from us before returning.

 

A) If you notify us of your wish to return an item within 14 days of the date of delivery.

It is the responsibility of the customer to return the item and ensure the package has been reasonably protected in return transit. You must include a copy of your invoice with the return. Provided the item is in a re-saleable condition, (i.e. unused, unmarked, un-assembled and in original unmarked packaging) we will refund you the full price that you paid for the product including any standard delivery cost. There are numerous delivery companies that offer online or phone bookings for insured collections and delivery back to us of unwanted orders at very competitive costs. We can assist with advise on this if you call us to request such. 

For non-furniture packages up to 30Kgs, if you wish, we can arrange collection during normal working hours - week-days only, by our delivery company, but you should understand that this service bears the cost of collecting the goods from you AND delivery back to us. If you chose to use this service, then the goods are then covered by our delivery company whilst in transit - provided you have correctly and fully repacked the goods in the original packaging. The cost of this service can vary between typically £20 - £30. If you are not available for a pre-arranged collection, then you must bear the cost of any re-arranged one also.

For Furniture, any item including glass and larger items over 30Kgs, you will need to make your own arrangements to ship the items back to us. You may find that the cost of such may be high, perhaps between £20 - £50. For larger items that have been delivered by one of our one or two man services the return cost may exceed £100. In these instances once you have an RMA Number, bringing the item back to our showroom at NG19 9BG may be a good option.

PLEASE NOTE With many of our special delivery services for larger furniture items, you will have the opportunity to inspect the item when it arrives, and if for any reason you decide it is not really what you expected, then you can ask the delivery company to repack and take the item away immediately. You will be liable for the return costs, but these will be less and more convenient than returning the item later.
