The award winning Signature Revelation is the little brother to the flagship 'Genesis Silver Spiral'

The QED 'Revelation' speaker cable lives up to its name and delivers unprecedented sonic performance at a price comfortably affordable by all Hi-Fi and home cinema enthusiasts. This cable is a miniaturized version of our flagship 'Genesis' cable and features Teflon dielectrics to maintain its low impedance.

Aircore™ Technology

QED cables above 2.5 mm2 cross sectional area utilize air core technology to obviate the skin effect by bundling several separately insulated smaller cores together to make up a larger CSA. If these conductors are arranged around a hollow central core of polyethylene the self inductance exhibited by the cable can be reduced to around half that predicted by calculation.

Like most interconnects here, the Reference Audio 40 is a silver-plated copper affair, arranged in a special complementary way - the two conductors have different diameters, and this is said to give an alternative path for high-frequency audio signals to avoid time smear. The foamed polyethylene dielectric is claimed to reduce the amount of signal lost to cable capacitance. QED's Analoc plugs are fitted, said to be a low eddy current design with copper instead of brass used. They feature an outer locking cylinder that needs to be screwed forward before the plug's 'blades' can be locked onto the RCA phono socket, then the locking cylinder needs to tightened backup for a (very) secure fit. The Signature Revelation speaker cable uses 10 silver-plated oxygen- free copper central conductors, which are claimed to provide very low resistance alongside high levels of detail. These cores are separately insulated and arranged around a hollow core of polyethylene; QED calls this its Aircore technology and it's claimed to reduce inductance.

Sound Quality

Before the QED loom, the panellists have taken a mixed view of the various wires played to them. They've found positives and negatives, liked some and been lukewarm about others. But two out of the three listeners express a strong preference for this set of cables, applauding it for its clean, open, even sound that doesn't try to do anything too clever. Instead it is very accomplished at almost every facet of the music, and makes things look rather easy.

Cables Matter

Revelation is a completely new design from the QED laboratories. It utilizes the technologies of both Genesis and X-Tube cables and combines them in a new miniature format to bring high end cable philosophies to the mid range hifi market.

This cable offers exceptional performance for its price through its use of carefully calculated X-Tube™ and Genesis Silver Spiral geometries which have the combined effect of reducing the overall impedance of the cable below that which would be expected of a traditional speaker cable of the same cross-sectional area.

Aircore Technology™ is completely effective in reducing the self-inductance of the cable to around half that expected of parallel conductors by calculation. Because of this conductor spacing can be increased to reduce capacitance without the extra inductance generated by this change causing audible problems in the cable performance.

Through the use of superior dielectric materials such as polyethylene and for the first time in a QED cable, clear Teflon insulation, the dissipation factor is kept extremely low - something that is the hallmark of a good sounding speaker cable.
