QED Ruby Anniversary Evolution
Energetic, direct and clean: this is a purposeful sound, if not the warmest we’ve ever heardWrite your own review
- Decent price
- A slightly lean quality to the sound it conveys
QED, a company with many Awards successes, has updated its four-star Ruby Anniversary cable – and to great effect.
The QED Ruby Anniversary Evolution is a defiantly no-frills design – so we’re hoping it has an equally purposeful touch with our reference kit.
At first listen our system sounds livelier with this QED cable than with the current Award-winning AudioQuest FLX-SLiP 14/4.
There’s a more direct quality to the midrange and treble, and it seems to make precision a priority. It’s an engaging sound, but it does lack the AudioQuest’s subtlety.
The way the QED communicates dynamics is particularly entertaining, too. It’s revealing, agile and offers a really open performance.
The Ruby Anniversary Revolution does have a lean side to its sound, though. Less warm-sounding than we would like.
Of course, that doesn’t have to be a negative: if your electronics need something that won’t dull them any further, this Ruby speaker cable could be the answer. A great cable.
