The Audioquest Carbon USB cable is a resolutely high-end product. Its conductors are plated with silver (5% compared to the Audioquest Cinnamon USB cable's 1.25%) to deliver sound quality to rival the greats. The higher frequencies mostly circulate on the surface of the conductor, hence the effectiveness of silver plating. This cable delivers performances that are as strong as a cable made of solid silver for the price of a solid copper cable! It is insulated with high-density polyethylene and a 3-layer shielding system (foil/mylar/copper) to prevent all forms of distortion. The conductors are cold welded under high pressure.
The Audioquest Carbon USB cable is a digital lead designed to connect your computer to a DAC (digital-to-analogue converter). Like all digital audio signals, USB audio requires precise synchronisation to prevent the jitter that can affect audio transmission. The Audioquest Carbon USB cable delivers excellent conductivity.
The Audioquest Carbon USB cable boasts incredibly high production quality and is probably the best USB cable in its category - a real must-have! Franck
