New Fire-Resistant CL3-Rated Cable Approved for In-Wall and Between-Floor Use in Residential and Commercial Installations
CES ’09, LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2009 — Lenbrook America, exclusive U.S. importer of QED, the leading British specialist cable brand, is pleased to announce the introduction by QED Cables of QED Professional Silverline Five loudspeaker cable, ideal for use as a speaker cable in walls and between floors, at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show.
Silverline Five is QED’s first audiophile quality speaker cable to be fully rated by Underwriter Laboratories (UL). It meets the UL-CL3 standard for in-wall use, the UL13 standard for Power Limited Cables, and the UL-CL3R standard for use as a certified Riser cable that can safely be used between floors in both residential and commercial locations. The cable brings hi-fidelity purist performance to the custom installation market.
“The new cable has been developed as a special professional installation version of our multi-award winning Silver Anniversary hi-fi speaker cable,” said Phil Davis, category manager for Armour Home Electronics, QED’s parent company.
The non-directional Silverline Five cable features four rope-laid central conductors with optimized geometrical spacing to provide the best impedance for audio signal handling. Each conductor consists of four 99.999 percent oxygen-free, silver-plated central conductors. The cable is sheathed in a flexible white PVC outer jacket, and has an outer diameter of 3.4mm. Its capacitance is rated at 42.9 pF/m, its loop Inductance at 0.51 uH/m, and its loop resistance at 14.9 m. To assist installers, Silverline Five comes in a resistive pull Pro box that ensures accurate issuing and measurement of the cable on site.
QED Professional Silverline Five is available now from authorized QED dealers. It can be seen with other outstanding QED products in Suite 31-110 at the Venetian Hotel, during CES.
