SOLD: TeraDAK Custom A to B USB Power Y Cable (separates 5V to battery) -- PP/Ship included

Will Ship To: USA; Canada; Local Pickup

*2/10/15 reopening: I have one used TeraDAK custom A to B USB Power Y cable for sale. It's mint condition. I will include a wall adapter but for best results I highly recommend a battery bank for a source. Price includes Paypal fees and shipping to USA. International will be $5 more on shipping and payment must be gifted.

Also, check out my other classifieds here!

Recently found an interesting cable while surfing the site. It's the custom A to B USB Y cable they included in a packaged power unit kit. Essentially with the cable you can use a separate power supply to drive any USB DAC or USB to Coax/Optical transport or any device that benefits from a separate, cleaner power. Most DACs will benefit from a cleaner power source than a PC or even a power adapter, just ask the people charging a USB Y cable plus power unit in the $1000 range. You can use this cable and run a USB battery pack that charges USB devices, granted it doesn't have automatic power down if the draw is too little as it would with most DACs. Here's an example of a battery pack known NOT to shut down: Energizer

I've contacted the seller directly and inquired about the cable by itself, without the power units. They agreed to sell them separately.

I have a rather LARGE power conditioner that powers my Audio GD Amp, and it did clean up the sound a smidge

I've a Furman SMP+ filter and it's made quite a noticeable difference. I live in a house built in the 20s and the wiring was redone at some point with a new panel but still dirty power from what my ears tell me. I liked the Furman product so much I bought their compact model AC215 for my work rig where power is also dirty in the day (industrial district, industrial lighting, etc) and that's made quite a difference as well.

Let's end this non-thread related talk now and stay on track though. Thanks

Should have seen this like a month ago...

 

I've always had ground noise from the computer PSU to the DAC (always a hum in the background).  Didn't know this cable exists.  I ordered the Adnaco USB-via-Fiber, which works but costs an arm and a leg.

I've seen a pricey rig at a recent meet that had the elaborate physical separation of data and power via cool swirly cable holder. The USB then goes to a super nice power supply unit. After seeing all the battery powered DACs (specially in the top-end region) I couldn't help but think that a cable like this exists. Then I saw someone using it to power a Coaxial transport with a battery and the search ensued.

I'm hoping they work out fantastic, I'm all for frugal performance. I've ordered my battery already, which is just a USB power bank, and I'm hoping that it will not have an automatic shutdown feature (if the power load is too small).

This is just for the cable, you supply a power source (battery or plug-in). Any more questions please PM.

Here's how this cable works in case someone needs visuals. Essentially separating the digital and power signal of the USB, you can utilize a power supply or battery to run the DAC eliminating unwanted noise from the PC's noise USB.
