QED Performance Original Speaker Cable AIRLOC Plugs Heatshrink Terminated

QED Performance Original Speaker Cable AIRLOC Plugs Heatshrink Terminated is made up of 76 strands of pure copper conductors in a polyethylene outer jacket, supplied fully terminated with Mini Airloc banana plugs and QED heatshrink.

QED Original Airloc terminatedQED Original speaker cable builds on the qualities of QED 79 Strand by adding a low density polyethylene dielectric to cut down on the amount of audio signal energy lost due to cable capacitance. 99.999% oxygen free copper conductors and optimised geometry are used to deliver the superb sound quality of this low cost cable.

Mini AIRLOC Banana Plugs

Gold-plated mini AIRLOC banana plugs are fitted, designed to maximise contact area throughout the wide tolerance range found in 4mm amplifier and speaker sockets. This means that the connection remains uniformly tight and with its premium gold-plating, provides optimum sonic performance through time.

QED developed Airloc™, a solder-free, airtight perfect fusion between the two metals of cable and plug. This ‘cold weld’ method allows the cable and plug to offer the optimum signal transfer and therefore, better sound quality.

It also reduces contact resistance and ensures perfect long-term performance.

Consistent with Compass Audio’s ethos these cables offer excellent value for money and outstanding sonic performance!

If you prefer to terminate the cable yourself, QED Original speaker cable is available unterminated. Please see QED Performance Original Speaker Cable.
