QED XT400 extra bright speaker cable 2.5m pairs.
« on: February 28, 2017, 11:34:12 PM »






QED XT400 Speaker Cable.  2.5 Metre pairs x 2.  R1800.00 per pair
 
Silver plated copper.
Is your BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB (300B) amplifier a little dul?
The hearing not what it used to be and things a bit rolled off on top?
You are using full range drivers and long for a super tweeter?
Maybe you blew your tweeters?
This cable will help and will bring a breezy shimmer to it all. Natural? No. Relaxing? H3ll no. Bright? Yes, very bright, very clever!!!
 
Lots of awards though from them Brits in that What HiFi advertorial....
 
1 Pair with Bananas all round, the other spades on amp, bananas on speaker. These are the proper airlock connectors.
A pair would sell new in the UK at GBP180.00, add 15% import duty on electrical cable and R3400 is a likely retail price.
I would take R1750.00 per pair and R3300.00 for both. The Spade and banana combo makes Bi Wiring easy with these.
 
 
QED's multi-award winning XT400 speaker cable, utilising X-TubeTM technology
Silver-plated oxygen-free copper tubular conductor geometry. For use in the finest hi-fi and home theatre systems. This design delivers a massive cross-sectional area using X-TubeTM technology to eliminate the skin effect whilst maintaining a user friendly “figure of 8” geometry. This is QED’s ultimate affordable upgrade for high end systems
 
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
X-Tube Technology
At low frequencies both X-TubeTM and conventional stranded/solid core speaker cables convey signals in a linear way. However, at high frequencies, X-TubeTM retains a near-linear signal transfer, whereas the conventional cable fails to conduct uniformly across the entire conductor area. The result is that X-TubeTM delivers greater fidelity across the audio spectrum which would other wise be lost in ordinary cables.
Silver plated 99.999% oxygen free copper conductors
Provides a low frequency path for the audio signal and delivers stunning high frequency detail

Just realised.   The XT must stand for Xtra Treble.

I have been using this cable for about 18 months.  The initial impression was that the sound was crisper, but not annoyingly so

I seem to scaring you guys with the bit of urine I am extracting. 

Like they would say in the Cape.   Die wyn is nie suur nie, hy is nie soet nie. 

The XT400 isn't easy going and gentle...
