    Silver Spiralís exceptionally low resistance allows amplifiers to exert outstanding grip and control over the speakers theyíre driving, especially at low frequencies. This isnít just another speaker cable itís a high performance audio component.

    The Genesis Report shattered many of the myths and misconceptions surrounding cable design and established the sound scientific principles to which all our current cables conform.

    Genesis Silver Spiral is the core of such thinking. It is, above all, sonically accurate. Transparent and neutral.

    Silver Spiralís exceptionally low resistance allows amplifiers to exert stunning grip and control on the speakers theyíre driving, especially in the bass. Transient response is improved, overhang virtually eliminated. The drivers spend more of their time converting the signal.

    This isnít just another speaker cable but a high performance audio component. It could just be the most cost-effective upgrade you ever make.

    CONSTRUCTION

    Starting from the inside, Genesis Silver Spiral comprises two grouped bunches of conductors. Each Group is made up of nine individually insulated silver plated 99.999% Oxygen Free Copper cores twisted around two central fillers (one red, one white) in QED's special spiral geometry to minimise sound-degrading "proximity effect". Silver Plated OFC provides greater conductivity than copper alone and delivers superb resolution and delicacy, especially when used as part of a high end system.

    All elements of the dielectric, including the thin, low density conductor insulation, are Polyethylene (a material with a low dielectric constant and an ability to dramatically reduce signal leakage). The grouping geometry reduces inductance between conductors, thus minimising field effect distortions. Aluminium mylar tape separates the twisted conductors and the translucent PVC jacket provides a tough protective flexible outer cover.

    TERMINATION

    We can terminate your cable with QED's superb 24 Carat gold plated AIRLOC termination plugs. AIRLOC is QED's specialised loudspeaker termination method and offers the very best termination with QED speaker cables. This is a solder-free, airtight fusion between the cable and plug and offers optimum signal transfer, excellent signal quality and perfect long-term performance.




    FREE CABLE BURN-IN SERVICE OPTION USING THE NORDOST VIDAR MACHINE WHEN YOU PURCHASE THIS CABLE FROM FUTURESHOP.CO.UK

    We are pleased to offer a free cable burn-in service for this cable when purchased through us. The Nordost VIDAR cable burn-in machine combines three different functions all in one operation:

    • It neutralises charges that build up around the cables and the insulation

    • It provides a very wide band and deep conditioning into the conductor core, which produces changes in the way signals pass through the metal.

    • It ultrasonically conditions the surface of the conductors.


    • The VIDAR uses a proprietary combination of composite and complex signals to condition the cables. Parts of the signal oscillate at ultra-low frequencies, while other parts are in ultra-high ranges which extend beyond the range of video frequencies. The signal bounces in a ping-ping ball-like fashion from one end of the cable to the other. During the burn-in process, ultra-low frequencies penetrate deep into the core of the cable. The ultra-high frequencies zip along the surface. This method of signal transmission a set up beat harmonics, or heterodynes, between the two complex waveforms. In the digital domain, this would be referred to as aliasing products. These beat frequencies penetrate all layers of the cable.

      The design of the circuitry also has a unique feature which drives electrons above the conductor into the dielectric (or insulation) area. The VIDAR not only sends ping pong signals along the cable, it also sends a similar signal from the centre core to the outer shield in the case of interconnect cables. This function neutralises the electrical charges discussed above.

      So what does that all mean to me?
      The end result of conditioning cables with the Nordost VIDAR is improved sound staging, increased detail, and an overall more musical presentation.

      HOW TO ORDER

      Simply select the length of cable, the type of plug and the termination required (one end or both ends) from the drop-down menus above and click on the 'Buy' button to add the item to your basket. Your cable will be dispatched within 24 hours subject to Future Shop terms & conditions.

      WHY CHOOSE QED AIRLOC FORTE

      When AIRLOC Forte plugs are fitted to a cable they are subjected to such high pressure they undergo a process called 'cold welding' which transforms the plug and cable into one solid piece of metal.

      The graph below shows that when full pressure is reached, resistance is at a minimum. In addition, because all the air has been removed, there will be no degradation of sonic performance caused by oxidisation of the contact area, for the whole lifetime of your cable.



      NEW QED AIRLOC Forte plugs enable optimum performance and maintain signal integrity between amplifier and speaker.

      QED speaker cables only use 99.999% oxygen free copper, in many cases enhanced by silver plating.

      In Order to maintain channel tonal balance and minimise speaker cable resistance you should make sure your cables are of equal length.

    I wasn't pleased with the XT40 performance - and therefore returned the XT40 for the Genesis Silver Spiral - futureshop was kind enough not to complicate the exchange and assisted me. I got this with 96 Hrs burn. It is significantly thicker and more rigid than I expected. I never believed speaker cable would make "detectable" or hearable difference on any system and strongly subscribed to the idea that as long as one had a good quality 14 or 16 guage speaker cables - it would do the job. This cable certainly proved me wrong! There is significant improvemnet in the way my music sounds now and the way I am able to enjoy it. The bass is firm and controlled and the treble just the right kind without sounding too squeeky. Must add that there is significant price variation with the first cable XT40 I purchased - but there is significant variation in the sound I hear - so very pleased and happy! I wonder what could be performance if one had budget for much expensive cables running into thousands! QED Genesis Silver Spiral I would say is affordable high end item. Thanks Adam @ futureshop!

    I have just recently purchased QED silver spiral Genesis speaker cable. From futureshop. I am very much into my music and films. You have to imagine cables. Like they are the bloodline to your stereo or AV system. It's like putting really good tires on your car. Put the wrong ones on and the car will handle rubbish. I have lots of different makes of cables they all make a difference you have to get the right ones what you like on your system QED seem to be very good for the money and very revealing good Drive good death. They have put a certain sparkle on my AV system I am very happy Neil beaver.

    Thanks for a pair of great speaker cables! The sound got more headroom and another level of microdynamics. Sounds more realistic. The genesis feels very well built and they look very good to! For the money i wouldt say this is a bargain! I would also like to thank futureshop for a very good service and quick answers on questions. The shippment was also very fast! I would buy cables here from now.

    It arrived today as ordered from Japan. It is a great cable and I like it. It is clearer and wider than already owned Ruby Evolution and Revelation. The processing of the AIRLOC banana plug is also wonderful! Condition and packaging of goods are very good.

    Very good cable! Open and neutral sound. I use Bower & Wilkins CM 9 loudspeaker and Hegel H160 amplifier and it is a perfect match. Do not miss to use Nordost "machine" when you order I took 96 hour.

    The Cable is well build with perfect finish and quick delivery to The Netherlands. The sound is very clear, open and with lots of detail. Bass is excellent. I am using Musical Fidelity M6 500i amplifier with Xanadu HRS-XXL speakers. It is a very good match and I am very satisfied with It.
