If cable companies claim that their USB cable can be better than others, what is it based on?
What factor makes a USB cable good?
Does gold-plated connector help? Most HDMI cable are gold plated, including the one I have right now 13.8G/s speed.
I am not sure why gold plating USB cable would help tho, most jack for USB are not even gold plated, and the connecter for USB
are the pins inside, which are already gold plated(or is it just naked copper??) So gold plating the "housing" for the connector should not help.
A higher gauge wire? I was someone talking about power transfer with a better made higher gauge power cable inside the USB,
but my DAC comes with a good power supply already, why do i need that?
Shielding should help?
