This is a custom ordered and finished (there were a few designs that you could select to conceal the plain silver conductors and the owner chose this “rainbow” finish) pair of speaker cables that were cut in 10ft length and silver soldered on the ends. Previous owner chose to have his cables go “direct” instead of spades or bananas. Although QED had the word “silver” in the model name, it is actually silver plated copper and not pure silver. For the money, the cables offer tremendous value. Lots of clean details and transparency over just plain old copper cables. This model has won many awards and positive reviews over the years and is still a current offering.
Cosmetically, the cables look good. Ends look a bit ruffled but works just fine or you could just re-solder with extra silver or terminate it with spades or bananas.
