Our Story

Founded by Bob Abraham and Ian Vine in 1973; QED has, over the past 40 years, acquired unparalleled knowledge and experience of hi-fi and home cinema cables and connectivity.

We’re the market leader but we’re certainly not complacent. Our design engineers constantly investigate new technologies and undertake scientific research to ensure we always offer our customers the very best products on the market. As far back as 1994 we conducted the most extensive ever scientific investigation into the effects of speaker cables on hi-fi system performance. The results were astonishing, and can be found on our website under the heading ‘The Genesis Report'. The report produced clear evidence that speaker cables do matter, and we continue to use this information today. We urge you to try QED cables for yourself. If you do you’ll discover the differences in sound quality that QED hi-fi cables can really make.

We can also legitimately claim that, during this period, we have changed people’s perspectives about hi-fi cables. Consumers no longer believe that ‘bell wire will do’ or that ‘any old cable will be fine’. This understanding that cable quality is important and makes a real difference to your enjoyment began with the launch of the QED 79 strand speaker cable in 1978.

QED’s reputation for both innovation and technical excellence is known throughout the world. The latest computer aided design techniques allow our research and development team to keep pace with technological advances and deliver products that achieve the highest levels of performance and reliability. This is why QED speaker cables and interconnects are recommended by so many of the world’s leading manufacturers of hi-fi and home theatre equipment, and also why so many of our products have won prestigious awards. For your convenience, and to better understand the different cable products we offer, we have divided them into four separate ranges: Profile, Performance, Reference and Signature.
