”At this price, you’ll struggle to get your system sounding cleaner.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Terminated 5m lengths – ready to go

At 5 metres each, these terminated cables are ideal for larger rooms and for when your hi-fi components are to the side of your speakers rather than between them. With the plugs already fitted, simply plug in and go.

Airloc Forte plugs for the best quality termination
QED’s Airloc cold weld system ensures a high contact, long-lasting join between the plugs and cable. This not only gives the best sound possible but also excellent durability, with no chance of a dry solder break or lose connection screw. The Forte plugs use a spring loaded connection pin for a tight connection with all 4mm speaker terminals.

An award-winner, improved
Building on the award-winning original, the XT40i adds new tech to make the best, better still. The new Air Gap dielectric improves the sound’s precision, while improved X-Tube technology enhances the stereo imagining and realism.

Air Gap dielectric
For the improved XT40i, QED has increased the separation between conductors, creating a low-loss Air Gap dielectric. This improves the dissipation and capacitance characteristics, resulting in many sonic improvements. In terms of carrying a rhythm and timing, the XT40i is better than ever.

X-tube technology
Conventional cables can fail to conduct high frequencies uniformly across the entire conductor area. QED's X-Tube cable technology allows a near-linear signal transfer at treble frequencies for greater detail and realism of sound - especially at higher frequencies.

Very low resistance – ideal for longer runs
A further benefit with the QED XT40i cable is the large 4mm squared cross sectional cable area. Combined with the use of 99.999% oxygen-free copper cable, there's very low resistance, which makes it easier for your amplifier to drive your speakers, no matter what its power rating. It also makes the cable suitable for longer cable runs, with less signal loss over longer lengths.

Whatever you taste in music, hear it at its best, with the QED XT40i.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service once again from Richer Sounds Just taken delivery of these new speaker cables which are now bedding in with my new PMC Prodigy 5 speakers.  Not a lot you can say about the cables, they're QEDs, good gear but I can say that the service from Richer Sounds was once again exemplary and professional and top notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality cable Purchased as part of a new system, so difficult to compare with other cable, but very pleased with the sound quality. The banana plugs make for a more secure and reliable connection. As always, the help and advice from Mikey at the Leeds store was second to none.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It made a real difference Replaced aging gayle speaker cable with the QEDXT40I. The difference is noticeable right through the sound spectrum. The result is a clearer sound and was a much cheaper upgrade than replacing my monitor audio bronze speakers which now have a new lease of life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clearer sound Bought with new speakers and believe they helped but the speakers themselves were a significant improvement (ATC SCM19)
