    Thank you for the very interesting review, as I am new to the DAC/Amp/filter scene, could you help me understand how this works? I thought a USB port just forwards the ones and zeros from the music file to the DAC, which transforms the sound into a analogue signal. The analogue signal is where the distortion etc is formed from interference. In HDMI cables for example, I've never seen any difference in image quality switching from a $4 and a $180 cable. How can a binary data stream be cleaned up while it only contains the data from the original music file? Thank you for you help.

    I can't pretend to understand all the tech behind it but the difference is audible, and I did a check for volume effects in my iPurifier2 review, but iFi has some good explanation on their website. They also are very good about answering questions, so I'd shoot their support team an email.

    @Pastapipo Yup you got that right. This hobby is full of BS and pseudo science and as you can see people eat this up with a spoon. You find plenty of anecdotes but no real scientific empirical data to support those claims. Spend your hard earned cash on real products that could possibly make any difference.

    [user=343480]@Pastapipo[/user] ones and zeros are really an oversimplification. Probably a better read is Darko's article found here :- [url=http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2016/05/gordon-rankin-on-why-usb-audio-quality-varies/]http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2016/05/gordon-rankin-on-why-usb-audio-quality-varies/[/url] In short, a sender sending a one could be misinterpreted as a zero on the receiving end and the cable doesn't really have to be long for errors to be introduced, etc. PC data has error calculation/error correction to ensure data sent is the same as data received. For audio data, as per the article, isosynchronous USB transmissions does not have error correction. You've raised a good point about video to see if there's any error correction mechanism in video streaming.

    Very interesting, thanks! I will look into the matter.
