The largest cross sectional area of pure copper ever incorporated into a QED loudspeaker cable, enables Supremus to deliver the ultra-low resistance required to ensure perfect fidelity of the musical signal.
QED cable designs are informed by their exhaustive ongoing research into cable parameters which began in 1995 and is detailed variously in the Genesis Reports. These reports set out the design-principles to which they have since adhered and which have resulted most recently in the development of QED Supremus loudspeaker cable, the ultimate expression of sound through science without compromise.
QED Supremus benefits from the appliance of Aircore Technology and therefore boasts very low impedance across the audio band. Cable capacitance and inductance are controlled by the use of low loss dielectrics and the unique constraints of the Aircore geometry.
At just 5 mΩ/m QED Supremus has an extremely low DC loop resistance because it uses 6.16 mm² of cryogenically treated silver plated 99.999% oxygen free copper conductors, the largest cross-sectional area cable ever to be available from QED. This brings the amplifier electrically much closer to the loudspeakers enabling it to exercise better control over them, so that fidelity to the original music signal can be more accurately maintained.
AirCore™ Technology, unique to QED cables, means unrivalled high frequency detail, rhythm and timing. Supremus boasts sixteen silver plated, 99.999% oxygen free copper, solid core conductors. To deliver its no compromise sonic performance, each individual conductor is insulated by a nearly invisible layer of enamel, providing ultimate insulation for a more detailed output.
DEVELOPED WITHOUT COMPROMISE
UNMATCHED IN QUALITY
UNRIVALLED IN COMPETITION
The improvement in physical properties of copper when cryogenically treated results from the elimination of dislocations in the material’s microstructure. Trumpets and other brass instruments have been found to produce a better tone after Deep Cryogenic Treatment and it is also used to treat guitar and piano strings.
QED Aircore Technology
Aircore Technology keeps inductance and capacitance at vanishly low levels. This changes the magnetic field within the cable to ensure high frequencies travel through the central part of the conductors. The result is an unrivalled level of high frequency detail and cable timing.
6.2mm² Cross Sectional Area
Boasting two bundles of 16 Silver plated, cryogenically treated oxygen free copper conductors for ultra-low resistance exerting beautiful control, bringing your amplifier and speaker electrically closer together.
Enamelled Conductor Insulation
The conductors are uniquely individually insulated by a nearly invisible layer of enamel. This material was chosen because it has extremely good insulating properties and sets new standards in the insulation hierarchy.

Order and Delivery Information
Thank you for considering Yorkshire AV for your next investment in your AV setup.
We are an approved retailer for all brands sold on our website, which means full manufacturers warranty and support as well as detailed product knowledge within our small business.
We use an inventory tracking system which states if item(s) are in stock and if not, what are the likely lead times.
Selecting "Next Day" delivery does not mean you'll receive your item the next day in some cases. It's the next day from when the item(s) are in stock with us. If there is an urgent need then please contact a member of staff via the Live Chat or telephone (01757 826111) to check on live stock levels.
Certain product(s) are delayed in manufacturing due to semi-conductor shortages across the Globe. We'll keep you informed as to your order progress and a likely ETA once we get updates from the manufacturers.
When will orders be dispatched?
- Orders placed Monday - Thursday before 2pm and are in stock will be dispatched the same day for next day delivery. This relates to product that state 'In Stock for immediate dispatch' on the product page.
- Orders placed on after 2pm on Thursday or on Friday will be dispatched for delivery on Monday unless Saturday delivery is selected.
- Orders placed over a weekend and are in stock will be dispatched on Monday.
Orders for items not in stock
Given the vast amount of variations of each product (e.g. AudioQuest cables) or Pro-Ject Audio Turntables - we keep the most common options in stock (i.e. gloss black finish, or 1.5m RCA cables) whereas longer cables or cables with terminations that are less frequently ordered will be ordered as required.
Generally speaking - we receive orders within 2-3 days for UK suppliers and 3-4 days for European suppliers (i.e. AudioQuest, DALI).
We want you to be 100% satisfied which is why we'll give you an email/call if item(s) aren't in stock and give you the option of changing the order, cancelling or if you're happy to wait a few days, we'll get it out as soon as possible.
If an item states 'Available to order' - this means the item is not in stock but we are able to order in. Lead times average 2 days but in some circumstances, delivery times may be longer and is outside of our control. Please contact us to get an estimate on delivery times if orders are urgent.
Who do you use for delivery?
Our primary delivery agent is DHL. Where orders are shipped directly from Yorkshire AV, we always use DHL who offer a fabulous service at competitive rates.
If we drop ship (i.e. direct from the supplier) then the delivery agent is out of our control. It is generally DPD or UPS however - we rarely see other carriers used.
As always - we welcome a conversation about your requirements and will always explore all options to connect you with the right solution.
