Product Description

QED Reference XLR 40 Digital is an interconnect XLR cable that builds on QED’s multi-award winning Audio 40 range. The Reference XLR 40 Digital is designed with Neutrik, to deliver an innovative cable primarily for low jitter and improved latency.

Pro Standard Neutrik Plugs

QED have joined forces with world-renowned audio connector supplier, Neutrik, to bring you an innovative new XLR balanced interconnect cable. The XLR-40 has Neutrik XX-14 Nickel Series XLR gold plated connectors, which are rugged and reliable and are a fan favourite around the world. They work particularly well with QED's Tri-Conductor geometry.

Floating Ferrite Jacket

The Reference XLR 40 has a Floating Ferrite jacket, like the rest of Audio 40 range, which absorbs high frequency noise signal components outside the audio band. This has results in reducing digital jitter and bringing timing errors to an ultra low level.

Unique Tri-conductor Technology

QED combines the Ferrite jacket technology with Tri-Conductor technology to reduce the signal to ground capacitance to extremely low levels resulting in an improved common mode rejection of mains hum pickup.

Tri-geometry is particularly effective in pro hi-fi audio applications when connecting pre and power amps using balanced cables or high-end streamers to DACs using digital XLR AES/EBU.
