Audio Quest - Diamond - USB A to B Digital Audio Cable (Single)
AudioQuest's Diamond USB-A-to-B Cables embody all of their core philosophies on cable design. The Diamond USB-A-to-B employs Solid Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) conductors, Hard-Cell Foam Insulation, and precise signal geometry. Specific attention has been paid to maximizing the performance of USB, and indeed, AudioQuest's Diamond USB-A-to-B USB cables push performance to new levels.
Hard-Cell Foam (HCF) Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry. Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy. Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Hard-Cell Foam Insulation is nitrogen-injected to create air pockets. Because nitrogen does not absorb energy and therefore does not release any energy from or into the conductor, distortion is reduced. In addition, the stiffness of the material allows the cable's conductors to maintain a stable relationship along the cable's full length, producing a stable impedance character and further minimizing distortion.
In 1982 Sony gave us "Perfect sound forever," along with the attitude that, "it's just digital, so all CD players sound the same." That was disproved and qualitative differences between players became accepted truth. Next came separate transport and DAC combos, which brought with it the attitude that "all S/PDIF digital audio cables sound the same..." until that too became disproved. Now the frontier has moved once again. Is digital audio really just ones and zeros? AudioQuest doesn't believe so, and once you've had a chance to listen to Diamond USB, you won't think so either.
