QED Introduces Silverline Five Fire-Resistant CL3-Rated Audiophile Loudspeaker Cable (17/3/2009)

Approved for In-Wall and Between-Floor Use in Residential and Commercial Installations QED, the UK's leading producer of specialist hi-fi and video cables for more than three decades, is pleased to announce the addition of 'Silverline Five' loudspeaker cable to its range. Silverline Five is the first audiophile quality speaker cable to be fully rated by Underwriter Laboratories (UL). It meets the UL-CL3 standard for in-wall use, the UL13 standard for Power Limited Cables, and the UL-CL3R standard for use as a certified Riser cable that can safely be used between floors in both residential and commercial locations.

QED is a brand of Armour Home, Phil Davis, their category manager with special responsibility for QED, said: "The new cable has been developed as a special professional installation version of our multi-award winning Silver Anniversary hi-fi speaker cable and brings hi-fidelity purist performance to the custom installation market for the first time."

The non-directional Silverline Five cable features four rope-laid central conductors with optimised geometrical spacing to provide the best impedance for handling audio signals. Each conductor consists of four 99.999 percent oxygen-free, silver-plated copper, central conductors. The cable is sheathed in a flexible white PVC outer jacket, and has an outer diameter of 3.4mm. Its Capacitance is rated at 42.9 pF/m, Loop Inductance at 0.51 uH/m, Loop Resistance 14.9m? and Dissipation Factor@10kHz: 0.0060.

To assist installers, Silverline Five is 'metre marked' and comes in a professional, ratcheted 'resistive pull' carton, which ensures accurate issuing and measurement of the cable on site. For best results it should be used in conjunction with QED Airloc(tm) banana plugs

QED Professional Silverline Five is available now from authorised QED dealers.
