I would add my opinion about USB cables, since it raises the debate as to whether there is a difference. Of course there is a difference, but they will hear the system which can transmit the details and differences, which is based in the nuances of sound. o2smile.gif

I still can't believe that the USB cable itself makes any noticeable difference nowhere else than in our heads unless there is some serious problems with the construction etc. It simply can't be because it transfers only digital signal data which can tolerate electromagnetic interference quite well. The only problem is that the cable itself might carry some interferering signals from your source and ambient to the amplifier state and that's why some USB cables have a ferrite chokes on them. A high-quality amplifier can handle and filter those unwanted interfering signals quite effectively but the problem is that many inexpensive models doesn't have proper signal filtering duo to cost savings.

This thread is not for personal thoughts on cables or narratives on your purchased cables. Nor pictures of ones cables. This is only a repost thread to include what cable you have added to the list. Either by added line, if the cable you purchased is not in alphabetical sequential order, or just add yours to the list by adding it numerically. There are sub forums on different manufacturers or the concept of cables it itself. This is just a representation list of overall participation of popularity.

did i do this right? notice i added another aq carbon. great cable if you do not dig dbs.
post #202 of 209
I use a wireworld starlight 7, which I upgraded from an ultraviolet 7. Things definitely opened up and the width of the soundstage increased quite noticeably.
post #203 of 209

interested in the platinum starlight at 5.0 meters. i did not even know about this. i think i will go order one from the cable company right now. $1,900. the wireworld looks very nice. I am betting it beats the aq diamond but the strange thing is it says way more silver but not how much. the aq is solid silver. can always return it too. honestly the filters like ifi and jitterbug will make more difference than the cable so long as the cable is good. at least the belkin gold.

 

edit: 2:36am ordered it. hope it is even better than the aq diamond.

 

edit again: this one is also solid silver. just waiting for it to arrive and can compare to other high end usb.

I've used a schiit pyst usb for the last year, recently switched to 2x audioquest cinnamon either side of a wyrd

post #205 of 209

iv'e been using a Pangea Audio solid silver USB cable for a couple of years now. for $50 you cant go wrong, i can really hear a different's when i was using a standard usb belken cable.

post #206 of 209

i have had it and honestly my favorite cable remains the aq diamond. i think it is the dbs i like. not sure.

post #207 of 209

I now have the Chord Sarum super aray usb and it is remarkable how much improved the music sounds with it in my rig.

post #208 of 209

Best USB cable I have used is the JCAT.

I will want to try their dual-headed version at some point.

post #209 of 209
I went through a few USB cables before settling on the Audio Sensibility Statement which is OCC silver.

Other USB cables that I own: Belkin gold, Wireworld Ultraviolet and the Starlight. I had a chance to audition the Statement for a month and it slayed them all so couldn't say no to keeping it.
