The internationally acclaimed award winning QED Performance Original builds on the magic of the original QED 79 strand. Sounds a bit confusing, but essentially the superior dielectic or insulation is much improved and for not a huge hike in price.


Part of QED's Perfromance Range, Original 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. Oxygen free copper conductors and optimised geometry are used to deliver the superb sound quality of this low cost cable.

Note: This description is for a 6 Metre uncut length of cable.

Oxygen Free Copper: To ensure a low resistance pathway for the signal and protection from oxidisation, QED Performance Original has 76 strands of 99.999% Oxygen Free Copper. This is a type of copper that has been refined in an electrically charged solution and the process (called electrolytic refining) that causes the copper to have an exceptionally low level of oxygen, often less than one hundredth of a percent. It is commonly used for speaker wire, audio/video interconnect cables because of its theoretical higher conductivity and better ability to transfer low-frequency signals. QED believe it provides better clarity of sound.  Others say it lasts longer than other, less pure, copper wire.

For most consumers, OFC wiring is not going to be audibly different than any other type of copper wiring because the increase in conductivity is minimal and not due to the de-oxygenation of the wire. Rather, the process of electrolytic refining also removes other impurities, notably, iron, that can cause resistance. Even so, the increase in conductivity would not be noticeable unless the wire was extended more than 15 metres. However, the message it sends is that the manufacturer is giving you the best product available. There are many other things done to the copper wires that definitely help create individual brand and model audio character that are VERY noticable when combined with different electronics. We call it system matching and you will hear a difference. 

Finally, the QED Performance Original includes a high performance low-density polyethylene dielectric. This is used to reduce the amount of audio signal energy lost due to cable capacitance, thus delivering greater depth and detail.

In The News

Since the beginning, QED have always attracted good reviews from the traditional press including What Hi-Fi 5 Stars & Hi-Fi Choice Best Buy - well regarded magazines from the UK.

Why Choose QED Cables?

In 1973 Bob Abraham and Ian Vine founded QED Audio Products and changed the way people think about hi-fi cables. By the time QED 79 strand was launched in 1978, it wasn’t considered' just another speaker cable' but a serious hi-fi component.

During 1994 QED conducted the most extensive ever scientific investigation into the effects of speaker cable on hi-fi system performance. Read the results in “The Genesis Report”. Hear the results whenever you listen to your favourite music using QED cables.

QED's reputation for innovation and technical excellence is known throughout the world. The latest computer-aided design techniques allow their research and development team to keep pace with technological advances and deliver products that achieve the highest levels of performance and reliability. This is why QED speaker cables are recommended by so many of the world’s leading manufacturers of hi-fi and home theatre equipment.

QED is Europe's number one award winning connectivity brand and has won more prestigious cable awards from ‘What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision’ magazine than any other brand (Awards 1981–2013).
