A Significant And Measurable Improvement In Digital Data Transfer. QED, the specialist UK hi-fi and home cinema connectivity manufacturer, is pleased to introduce its new Reference ‘Real Glass’ Optical Digital Interconnect.
Each conductor consists of:-
Glass Optical Fiber (GOF) core of 300 50um borosilicate real glass surrounded by a polyethylene cladding material. A flexible padding material is added of 6.5mm diameter soft white PVC and an extruded PVC jacket 8mm diameter with pearlescent finish completes the assembly. Attenuation <0.015dB/m (650nm), Numerical Aperture 0.5, Angle of Incidence 608, minimum bend radius 50mm.
Directional: This cable features Tos-Link plugs and can be used in either direction.
Connectors: Hi-End close tolerance spring loaded Tos-Link plugs with Zinc Alloy plated brass barrels combined with “range identifier” insert.
Compare this with the diagram below which shows a QED Reference Quartz cable. Because the fibres are so small (50mm) the different paths taken by the light rays are similar in length virtually eliminating the timing error and introducing less distortion. This has the effect of increasing bandwidth and the accuracy of the data transmission.
Reference Optical Digital Cable is designed specifically for the digital transmission of S/PDIF signals between Digital source equipment and DAC devices.
Available lengths: 1.0m, 3.0m
This is a wholly new QED digital interconnect featuring uprated glass optical fiber and is quantum leap in performance over ordinary POF fibers such as the Performance cable.
