AudioQuest - Carbon - USB A to B Digital Audio Cable (Single)
AudioQuest's Carbon USB-C-to-B Cables embody all of their core philosophies on cable design. Carbon USB-C-to-B employs Solid 5% Silver conductors, Hard-Cell Foam Insulation, and precise signal geometry. Specific attention has been paid to maximizing the performance of USB, and indeed, AudioQuest's Carbon USB-C-to-B cables push performance to new levels.
Of course all AudioQuest Carbon USB-C-to-B cables are terminated so as to honor the directionality inherent in all analog and digital audio cables. AudioQuest Carbon USB cables feature superior conductor materials and construction techniques that have allowed AudioQuest's other USB cables to achieve “Best-In-Class” recognition worldwide.
With the newer USB Type-C connector quickly becoming commonplace on many devices, AudioQuest's Carbon line of Type-C equipped USB cables will allow users to connect with Type-C enabled devices such as MacBook, ChromeBook, Pixel, Galaxy Note 7, etc
"With the Carbon, I noticed more air around the instruments. Pianos gained more body and the attack on percussion, like snare drums and cymbals, improved."
— Graig Neville, Part Time Audiophile
For many applications, the speed of digital communication is important. Most visibly, “speed” is about transferring large files as quickly as possible, or carrying enough data for an HD video. For USB audio, “speed” is critical not because of how-much-how-fast, but because time relationships within a digital stream are critical to the reconstruction of the analog waveform that brings information, music and joy to our ears. Time-based damage (jitter) to this information within the data package makes the sound small and flat instead of 3D; harsh and foggy instead of smooth and clear.
Semi-Solid Cocentric Conductors greatly reduce strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications, like USB audio. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a 100% silver cable, but priced much closer to a copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality USB cables.
