I know it's expensive but it's supposed to be good. I've thought about it myself.

No the dont!
I know a LOT better than that..I worked on the industry before for an online speakers company...we use the same bogus, magical terms to describe our products to sell them because simply put..there is people gullible enough to pay for them...not proud of it but the person buying is as guilty as the one selling.
Sorry man, if you really think such cable can really make a difference then I got nothing else to say here...
Cables undoubtedly make a difference! I just picked up the ADL Cables for my Shure SE535s for $100, and they have made a significant difference in sound quality (its also cause my original cables were 4yrs old and starting to oxidize) but they also carried an analog signal that is much easier to loose through cable.
Digital is a little different especially USB cables and such especially over such a short distance and considering its being used on portable amps and not $100,000 equipment that would actually be able to detect the minimal loss. Also because of the way USB Audio out works its a little like a two way communication stream, so if too much data is being lost it should just resend pockets of digital data to the DAC.
I'll see if i can do a make a better cable for the usb to usb and see if it makes an actual difference. Unless that cable was made of pure gold, shouldn't cost more then $10-15
Unless the USB cable changes the font on the 1's and the 0's, it's going to sound exactly the same. You can't "color" digital signals with analog equipment. You'd need software for that.
It's all fine and dandy that you guys buy different USB cables for aesthetic or practical reasons. Just keep in mind that the DATA SIGNAL will be the exact same signal on EVERY CABLE. A great way to prove it: use the USB cable to transfer photos or to print -- if the outcome is the same, then it's the same data signal and the same goes for digital audio. It's 1's and 0's, not an analog audio signal.
I pity anyone who tells me there is a difference in how a 4 inch cable "sounds". In the end this is gonna cost lots of money.
But... If its in you mind.
I spoke once with a HiFi aficionado who told me that his 10.000 Euros a piece speakers sounded great. I only replied with a few words "They better be".
"I rather listen to great music on a mid-Fi system than to lousy music on a super-duper HiFi High-End system"
Back on topic now.
Can't the E18 dealer get some of those OTG cables?
Sorry, yeah it was a little complicated.
I'm just wondering if anyone else sees the charge indicator fluctuate and be unrepresentative of actual charge remaining within the amp. For me it seems to either just keep all 3 leds lit until i try and set it to charge mode (charge the phone) at which point it will dramatically drop to 1 led. or when charging the amp it self it seems to go up one led just by plugging it in. Nothing major just find myself not really knowing when i need to charge the amp, as its actually only died on me once so far.
