Pangea Audio - USB cable - PCOCC & 4% silver - 1.5 Meter

Better than stock cables... but spend more if you can

davide256

Pros: clean sound, eliminates some of the glare and compression with stock USB cables

Cons: the Pangea pure silver USB cable is better for not that much more money

If you are looking for an inexpensive USB cable, this is an OK way to spend your money. It will reduce some of the digital irritants and sounds better than the "comes with" usb cables packaged with your gear. But I highly recommend  spending the money for their next model up. The $60 spend on the better 0.5m pure silver stranded Pangea USB cable will pay off in gobs of uncovered music...

DH Labs - White Lightning RCA Interconnect

“ I know it might be odd that the ratings of this review is a perfect score but for the price point of $50/1m you really can't go wrong with the DH Labs White Lightning RCA Interconnect.  Yes a well made cable will do better than the cable you can get at Radio Shack and Wal-Mart, but what scare many audiophiles away from cables is the usual high price and the motion of "snake-oil."  These are...” --HyperDuel

Out Of This World Audio Solar MkII interconnect

Out Of This World Audio Solar MkII interconnect

“ Using Neutrik Rean phonos and Van Damme cable this interconnect lays bare the claims that you need to spend money on esoteric cables to get any audio performance. This cable has not been cryogenically treated or had any flashy sheathing added. It has been breathed upon by angels, a new means of ensuring the very best in sound. Chrystal clear highs and dungeon deep lows make this the very best...” --Prog Rock Man

FiiO L16 Professional 3.5mm to 3.5mm Short Cable

“I'll keep this short since, well, it's a cable. I got it as part of the X5 stacking kit, to pair it with an E12A, replacing the original cable that came in with the unit (the L8). I imagined it's just going to be a pretty cable, but I was pleasantly surprised to actually hear a difference. In a nutshell, compared to the "generic" audio cable, what I subjectively heard: 1. The highs became...” --DeeKay10

Nordost Brahma Power Cable

“  I have had the brahma for awhile now and I saw there were no user reviews for it in head-fi. So I thought I would give some impressions of this very fine power cable. I have several aftermarket power cables including a kubala sosna emotion power cable which prior to my brahma was the most expensive . I purchased the nordost brahma on a closeout for half price but even then the...” --buson160man

AudioQuest Kingcobra audio cable - RCA plugs 0.5m (1.64') stereo pair

“ Yes, I´m one of those people believing in cable sound. Over the years I´ve owned so many (mostly less expensive) cables... I´ve had my fair share of experience. One cable was too crisp, the other one too muddy. So when I bought my headphone amp in 2008 I decided to end all of this, I wanted to do it right. Years ago I bought another Audioquest, a Topaz. Impressed by the quality I opted for...” --Marlene
