If you covet space and detail with sure but nimble footwork and heaps of insight, consider your search complete with the QED Performance Audio.

Performance Audio 40 shares an almost identical construction and geometry with the award winning Reference and Signature Audio 40 analogue interconnects, omitting only the most expensive components. Through use of QED’s Complementary Conductor (TM) Technology, Anamate (TM) RCA plugs and floating Ferrite insulation, Performance Audio 40 provides timing and detail to a level rarely delivered by even the most expensive of analogue interconnects.

Description

The latest addition to the award winning ‘Audio 40’ range of products, celebrating over 40 years of industry leading connectivity innovation.

Performance Audio 40 shares an almost identical construction and geometry with the award winning Reference and Signature Audio 40 analogue interconnects, omitting only the most expensive components. Through use of QED’s Complementary Conductor (TM) Technology, Anamate (TM) RCA plugs and floating Ferrite insulation, Performance Audio 40 provides timing and detail to a level rarely delivered by even the most expensive of analogue interconnects.

 

Floating internal Ferrite jacket

A special floating Zn/Mn Ferrite jacket is used within the Audio 40 cordage to absorb very high frequency noise components outside of the audible band that have an adverse effect on the micro-timing of the audio signal. With cables, our goal is to replicate as closely as possible the input signal at the cable output. Timing errors mean frequencies have been disrupted and the signal sent by your source equipment has not been accurately replicated. When measured at very high frequencies, Audio 40 cables do exhibit cleaner signal transmission than ordinary audio interconnects.

 

AnamateTM RCA Plugs

The QED AnamateTM plug is a variation of the innovative QED AnalocTM RCA plug found in Reference and Signature Audio 40. A hollow oxygen free copper central pin is used to improve high frequency detail in the same way as our X-TubeTM speaker cables. To reduce swirling ‘eddy currents’ (that would otherwise oppose signal flow) a unique low mass plug design using two small, high purity copper ground leaves is used. Like putting wooden wheels on a Ferrari, conventional RCA phono plugs have the potential to undo all of the hard work carried out by our carefully designed cordage. With AnamateTM and AnalocTM RCA plugs, the fidelity of the audio signal is maintained form start to finish.

 

Complementary ConductorTM Technology

Improves timing and detail, retaining the rhythm of the original piece. Unlike conventional analogue interconnects, Performance Audio 40 utilises two 99.999% Oxygen Free Copper 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.

 

Just listen

Performance Audio 40 represents phenomenal value for money. Our extensive listening tests comparing it against competitor products at much higher price points have astonished us! We urge you to compare it not only to your favourite cable but also alternative brands and models at any price!

Why buy from us?

Rapallo is an independently owned New Zealand company and with more than 15 years experience, we offer you both technical expertise and superior service.

Rapallo is fully authorized to sell products by all of the manufacturers listed on our website and in our store. In most cases we are more than a reseller, we are a direct dealer who also receives training and where possible we personally test products we sell.

Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo

  • meets manufacturer’s standards, from sales to service, in order to receive authorized status.
  • often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • provides  support for all the products they sell.
  • ensures that manufacturer warranties will be honoured.
  • buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (no grey imports or parallel imports).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Think you have a better price from someone in NZ (authorised dealer)? Call us, we’ll see what we can do.

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
