This is a thread to discuss Lightning cables available on the market.
I myself am interested in cables for use for portable DAC/Amp rigs like the Hifi-M8, Fostex hp_p1, Sony-PH1/2, Go-Dap, Verza, Cypher labs Theorum(has a different end) etc.
I myself use a Hifi-M8.
Discussion about build quality and different technical aspects and audio quality welcomed.
Pleas NOTE: Differing opinions may occur whether there are any differences in clarity or audio quality coming from various digital cables, I do not wish to turn this thread into a cables make a difference/make no difference war. Thank you.
And with that, onto the cables.
First up the Venture Craft angled lightning to USB-A cable.
This is a simple design of a USB cable with the official Apple lightning to mini USB adapter shrunk wrapped on, a kludge to be sure but effective none the less.
Venturecraft will also release an updated cleaner version as seen below later the year 2013.
(The final version will be shorter, the same length as the the 30 pin cable).
Next we have the V-Moda Tuono
A nice compact cable with a solid build.
I use the:
-V-Moda Tuono for commuting as it has a nice deep low end and present forward vocals.
-Venturecraft for home and cafe listening as it has slightly better imaging and instrument separation/placement.
Cables pictured with Centrance Hifi-M8 and ipod touch 5G.
