QED ‘Analoc™ RCA plug which features high purity copper signal and ground connections in an insulated low eddy current brass body. The hollow central pin eliminates skin effect in the signal connection and the locking barrel design clamps the dual tombstone ground connection firmly to the RCA sockets
Complementary Conductor Technology
Complementary conductor geometry utilises two conductors of different diameters to carry the same audio signal. This has the effect of providing an alternative path for high frequency audio components which might otherwise become time smeared in a single audio pathway.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Complementary Conductor TechnologyTM
This innovation utilizes two conductors of different diameters to carry the same audio signal. This has the effect of providing an alternative path for high frequency audio components which might otherwise become time smeared in a single audio pathway.
This material with its low dielectric constant has been used to cut down on the amount of audio signal energy lost due to cable capacitance.
It is understood that cryogenic treatment results in the elimination of dislocations and fractures in the material's micro-structure. Trumpets and other brass instruments have been found to produce a better tone after Deep Cryogenic Treatment (below -190 °C, -310 °F) and it also extends their working life. Our extensive listening tests have shown that the cryogenically treated cable is preferred over the same cable without the treatment.
ANALOCTM Locking RCA Plugs
The new QED Analoc™ plug is a low eddy current design featuring small high purity copper
conductors in place of the usual large volume brass body found in ordinary high quality plugs. This cuts down or eliminates the tendency for the changing magnetic field in the conductor to induce eddy currents which can affect the micro timing of the audio signal. Rhodium plating has the advantage for use as a plating material due to its superior hardness.

QED Lifetime Guarantee
Reference and Signature Audio 40 analogue cables use 'Analoc™' plugs with a built-in locking feature so that as the barrel is screwed up tight, the clamping force is increased making for a super noise free and secure connection.
To correctly fit 'Analoc™' plugs, the outer locking cylinder of the plug must be screwed forward, to loosen the gripping 'blades', whilst the plug is pushed into place on the socket. The locking cylinder should then be screwed back in order to lock the plug onto the socket. Needless to say, users must always remember to do this when connecting/disconnecting the cables.
