Lightning Cables - Official and Custom (welcomed). - Page 2

post #16 of 67
@Expat, you had mentioned that the vmoda and venturecraft gave slightly different SQ. AFAIK, it would be a pure digital signal extracted from the iphone, so would it possible to be affected by the cable? Don't take me wrongly, am not a skeptic, and I do appreciate how cables affect audio signal transmission (I am from Belden after all haha), just curious on your statement

Yeah, i understand theres meant to be no difference being 1 and 0s, but to my ears there is.
I had a bad venturecraft (they had about 20 pcs recalled) and so when i went to the shop i really wanted the vmoda to win, but the venturecraft kept coming out on top.
I bought them both for different purposes and further testing.

Tried em both again yesterday vmoda then then venturecraft, it was as if a veil lifted when i changed to the venturecraft.

Imho.

I ordered a 4" black monoprice USB to lightning cable. It looks suspiciously like the vmoda. I'm curious to see it. Monoprice cables are usually pretty decent. Just under $15 shipped.

Any comments contrasting the Vmoda and the MonoPrice lightning cables? I see 1/4" length difference and $10 diference. Any hands on experience with either?

I can't believe there are no right angle connectors available in the US.

I think thegrobe connector is available in the US.

Maybe the Venturecraft is on amazon? (edit:Yes, it is.)

Anyone know where to get a 90 deg head piece like on post #8 and lightning connector heads? Was curious how available these parts might be. 

 

Thanks

Fun fact, on a conference call with Apple they let me know that using 30 pin docks of the DIY variety (the kind you see on Qables, and all over the stores of various fine entrepreneurs) is unauthorized and anyone that does this owes them royalties.  Of course this would go quadruple for Lightning connectors, Apple's new golden goose.  So for all things LOD, if it uses an Apple part on one end, best not to publicize that you are doing this for money.  

 

That is, unless you are a MFi Developer or MFi Manufacturer.

Thank you! - I had no idea on the royalty issue!
