British audio specialist QED has announced its Golden Anniversary XT special edition speaker cable, said to represent the culmination of 50 years of research and expertise. 

The cable uses X-Tube Plus technology, a hybrid blend of Ultra-Pure Ohno Continuous Cast Copper and 99.99% oxygen-free copper conductor, low-loss ultra-uniform dielectric insulation, and Airloc Forte banana plugs,  which utilise a cold weld system for permanent attachment to the cable  for improved contact area and reduced resistance. 

X-Tube Plus technology, which combines X-Tube and Aircore, aims to deliver a consistent performance across the entire audible frequency range. 

It builds on the brand’s original X-Tube concept that places a cable’s conductive material around a  central hollow insulating rod.

The new cable's design ensures high efficiency and a low dissipation factor, making it the ideal upgrade for any Hi-Fi enthusiast who wants to experience the sonic benefits of a high-end speaker cable at a real-world price. 

The QED Golden Anniversary XT speaker cable will be available in June, with a price of £27 (€35 / $40) per metre.
