Pioneering audio cable manufacturer Audioquest started focusing on the importance of digital audio connectors 25 years ago. The issues with an SPDIF coaxial cable are not eliminated with an HDMI or USB connector! Actually, these connectors require high speed transfers with a high rate, which multiplies the error rate and affects musical quality.
The US manufacturer has developed a range of USB cables specifically dedicated to high definition digital audio. These USB cables are designed to connect a PC to a USB DAC with best transfer quality. Therefore, Audioquest uses high purity LGC single strand copper conductors that are not welded but cold assembled via an electric current of several thousand amperes. The insulators are typically polyethylene and air based, for minimum energy loss and reduced distortion. The gold-plated connectors are of high quality and provide excellent mechanical and electrical connection.
This Audioquest Forest USB cable will completely optimise your digital audio system. The gain is undeniable, the sound quality is smoother and less harsh. The precision is improved and the sound stage more credible.
If you want to listen to wave, flac, HD files in good conditions or use a USB phono stage in the best possible conditions, then this Audioquest Forest USB cable is what you need! Highly recommended... Franck
