    The award winning ‘Performance Graphite’ Optical cable allows you to experience superior sound quality when connecting DAC's, TV’s, CD players and Blu-rayTM players to amplifiers or receivers. Performance Optical uses a polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) acrylic glass optical fibre to comfortably transmit the higher bandwidth signals demanded by today's multi-channel digital audio links. The cable is optimised for a 'very low jitter' design to reduce digital errors, making for a cleaner audio data transmission. Here at QED we are so confident about the performance of our product that we offer a lifetime guarantee.

    Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) acrylic glass optical fibre.

    This new optical fibre boasts half the signal attenuation per metre of the previous Performance model, which means ‘Performance Graphite' comfortably transmits the higher bandwidth signals for multi channel audio. For HD multi channel audio applications (over 12MHz).

    Very Low Jitter Design.

    At QED we have identified jitter or distortions caused by errors in the light transmission as a major factor in the deterioration of the audio signal. By incorporating precision cladding techniques jitter is reduced enabling a cleaner signal with better dynamics and a wider sound stage.

    Very Low Loss.

    Very Low loss < 0.15dB attenuation per metre.

    "After some tweaking by QED's boffins, the Performance Optical has become a force to be reckoned with. This sturdy little cable worked well with our reference CD and DAC set-up, allowing them to reveal verve and punch when needed, together with transparency and a pleasing sense of detail. Optical cables really can make a difference to your set-up, and this nifty QED sits at the top of the tree as far as we're concerned. Try it yourself." BEST DIGITAL AUDIO CABLE, WHAT HI-FI SOUND & VISION AWARDS 2011

    "The Performance Graphite is a well-made cable, with a flexible but tough body, and beautiful, high-quality plugs. The sound it conveys is versatile and balanced, equally adept at expressing bass and treble.

    This sturdy little cable worked well with our reference CD and DAC set-up, allowing them to reveal verve and punch when needed, together with transparency and a pleasing sense of detail.

    With both movies and music, we heard improvements in system sound when using the QED, including greater detail and dynamics."

    Maybe I got too high hopes for this cable and so I was little bit disappointed. Sound quality didn’t improved that much what I hoped for compared to my bulk supermarket cable (Qnect optical cable). And I was concerned about how well this QED cable would connect to my CAMBRIDGE CXA60 amp and to BLUESOUND NODE 2 streamer. Well, it connected pretty well to the CXA60 amp, but not as well to NODE 2 at all. It left a little bit loose. My bulk cable connected much better to the both devices. The QED cable’s build quality is very good. And it took about a week to deliver cable to Finland. I would give 4 stars for sound quality and only 3 stars for the connectivity.

    This is my first try for upgrading optical cables so i can't compare it to other than my bulk calbe. I was littlebit sceptical whether there is differences in optical cables even i have experienced them with speaker cables during my many years in this hobby. I wanted to start with something relatively cheap and good in reputation. First thing i noticed with this cable compared to my bulk cable was the connectors. They really locked to my Audiolab QDAC firmly. After ten second with my favorite track was: There is difference in optical cables. The sound was more open with better spatial information. Top end got crispier, even so i had to change my RCA cable for better balance. I have nothing to complain about the low frequences neither. QED cable added littlebit more grunt and control. There is lot of advertising hype on this cable but it lives to it's expectations. I might even try the reference series in the future.

    Bought this cable to connect a large screen TV to a soundbar. Build quality is excellent. The cable is flexible and more substantial than the QED Profile Precision (which is still a good budget cable). The soundbar was formerly connected to the TV via the TV's HDMI (ARC) socket, but this socket is now connected to a new, network AV Receiver, hence the need for a new optical cable connection. Surprisingly perhaps, the sound quality from the soundbar now appears to be better than before. This cable is around twice the cost of the budget QED Profile Precision, but for better installations it is highly recommended.

    I used the QED to replace an old Monster optical cable between my cable box and my dac. What a huge difference in sound quality. Now the music coming from cable tv sounds as good as my other digital sources. An improvement of the frequency range as well as the elusive PRAT. I couldn't be more pleased.
