USB cable and Sound Quality - Page 4  

post #46 of 783

For $1,000, I would expect the music to fly out of the end of the cable without being connected to the source, amp or speakers...

I have been contacted by an audiophile cable manufacturer in order to review a prototype cable they are designing. It will retail from $300 to $1,000 depending on length and connectors. They are said to be "revolutionary" in their design and I have been offered a discount to review them. I decided to order their 60 inch cable which runs for $800.00 plus shipping. I was offered an 80% discount as a "reviewer discount". I figured it wasn't much of an investment to try out something "revolutionary" so I have pulled the trigger.

 

I'll report back on it once I get it in 3 - 4 days.

What kind of cable exactly? (connector wise)

I asked for a B-Style USB to Standard USB Connector.

I was just contacted by a German company rep. His sig read Blau Anbruch. confused_face.gif

 

They are shipping it directly from their plant in China.

Cool. Be sure to provide your testing methodology and controls so others can duplicate your experiments. 

I surely will.

Update...I just got a big refund. Their 60 inch USB cable is $300.00....not $800.00!

Going from $800 to $300 you should go from the "72 virgins" experience to the "Oh-Mie-Gwad" experience.

LOL!

 

We shall see....

I don't know, I think it will probably suck then.  300 isn't nearly enough to develop proper expectations.

I've tried the audioquest diamond usb, and I have to admit it was quite an innovation. Made me believe in digital cable differences; something I was highly skeptical about.

Did you blind test it against other cables?

Certainly enough to provide some expectations.

 

And cheaper than this or this one.

So, the $300 USB cable can do magical things, but it can be built in the same Chinese factory that builds the $2 USB cables.  How convenient!

So when using an expensive usb cable soldered with the tears of puppies, the hair of unicorns as a conductor and insulated with a super thick coating of fud(air is the best insolator and this one surely has a lot of hot air), connected via extension cable to your dac... Does that mean i just bought a ticket to hell?

post #59 of 783

No. The puppy tears (in the solder) are protection against damnation. 

 

Seems counter-intuitive, I know... but we have blind testing data to support this.

Seriously.

 

I haven't seen the cable but if I get a regular ol' USB cable...well...I'll chalk it up to experience. tongue_smile.gif
