The precise cylindrical construction of the silver-plated, 99.999% pure, oxygen free copper cables reduces the distortion caused by ‘skin effect’. The result is a neutral speaker cable that allows good hi-fi and home cinema equipment to deliver their full potential.” </p><p>“When compared to the award-winning single wire cable, the new SA-XT Bi-wire allows greater bass extension and control, together with more openness and detail in the mid and high frequencies.” </p><p>The attractively finished new cable utilizes a side-by-side ‘double figure 8’ arrangement with each silver-plated core visible through a flexible 3.9mm diameter clear polyethylene outer sheath. To ensure correct speaker ‘phasing’ the inner spacers, which maintain the cylindrical configuration of the cores, are individually colour coded. These spacers are also ‘crushable’ to allow straightforward crimping with ‘Airloc’ speaker plugs. Lastly, to optimise sonic performance by keeping capacitance as low as possible, the two outer conductors carry the positive signals and the two central conductors are used for the negative (or return) signals. </p><p>QED Silver Anniversary ‘XT’ Bi-wire speaker cable has a Suggested Retail Price of £10.00 per metre (including vat), and is available now from QED dealers nationwide.”
