Are cables important?
Cables are an essential component of any music or home cinema system. They establish the relationship between audio components, amplifiers and loudspeakers. QED has been conducting extensive research on cables and in particular, speaker cable. The results of their early research can be seen in the Genesis Report, published 1995.
One aspect of this extensive work on speaker cables is their resistance, an essential factor in determining loudspeaker response and control. Ultimately, speaker cables are a vehicle for transmitting the electrical signal from amplifier to loudspeaker and so should be as accurate, transparent and neutral as possible.
Listening tests show that QED cables allow optimum signal transfer between components and, in the case of speaker cable, allow the greatest possible control an amplifier can have over its connected speakers.
