Ungraded recently. Might actually better the lan connection through my PW bridge.
post #113 of 164

I have an hpa8 fostex and th900 and the cheapest usb cable to man kind. Music sounds great, matter of fact, better with each hour of burn in. however after much research, counter to what even fostex usa suggested, that its just packets of 1 and 0, doesnt matter. I have gone ahead and orderd from japan oyade continental 5s, will post the test when it arrives next week. Man they spend a lot from jewellery grade silver coating to silk..... I figure after much research that the effort put in does seem to effect the wave shape of the packets, or  improvement of transmission characteristics, this effects what we hear, seems to be validated by lots of folks. we shall see. for that matter i will disclose a test of Furman AC-215A Power Conditioner, another contentious debate as to whether quieting the ac signal noise actually effects what we hear. regardless where im at, surge and other protection is needed. 

so i shall admit at this point that a will continue to pepper the economy with cash but have stopped short of lightspeed cable price of 1200$ or say quantum resonant qx2 power magnetic filters at 1700$, canada by the way. cheers.

Furutech Formula2-AB,

 

But changed my system configuration and the one I have is too short, so I am temporarily using a "Monster Digital Life High Performance USB" from my stash.

Belkin wind up USB cable.  (Clearance cable for a dollar)  :P

 

But seriously....spending 20 dollars or more on a usb cable is...less than intelligent.

 

Luckily I make money selling cables that cost 20x-100x what a normal cable that has the same quality does (Monster).  But atleast they have a really nice replacement policy, dog chews through cable? They'll replace it.

You can't just start with the cable, you have to have an audiophile stick of RAM combined with precision solid state drives, they will deliver packets in the best shape possible.  Start at the source which is the harddrive then the RAM then the USB port, then finally the cable.

 

:D
