iFi Audio - Mercury3.0 - USB Power/Signal Shielded (USB 3.0 A to B)
The iFi Mercury3 USB computer audio cable is the new and improved version of the Mercury single run cable. Generic mass-produced USB cables that pack data and power cables together cause a negative impact on USB signal integrity and degrade sound quality. However, the Mercury3 breaks this mold by having quadruple shielding to protect the delicate USB data signal from the USB power. It employs heavy OFHC continuous copper silver matrix conductors and a custom minimum inductance parallel type construction for the best possible signal transfer, which protects the cable from RFI and EMI noise to provide the cleanest transfer medium possible.
The USB3.0 platform mandates better connectors and higher quality cables, and the Mercury3 meets these needs with ease. This much higher standard transmission platform means USB audio passes with the least disturbance, akin to driving on a newly paved highway compared to one with potholes. The quadruple shielding of the Mercury3 protects the cable from RFI and EMI noise to provide the cleanest transfer medium possible for the USB signal, which means sound quality is not compromised. Moreover, the FINAL USB connectors provide impeccable end-to-end RF shielding, being machined entirely from solid, aircraft-grade aluminum, and gold-plated connections make for years of steadfast service.
The Mercury3 is also fitted with three custom-made metal oxide ceramic RF noise silencers. Each has a different effective range so that they greatly broaden the range over which RF noise is silenced. Furthermore, the middle silencer is adjustable and can be moved along the whole length of the cable, which then "detunes" the antennae formed by the cable, depending on the conditions and requirements in the system. The other two silencers should be kept as close to each respective end as possible. The Mercury3 is a perfect match for the iGalvanic3.0 and the micro/nano USB3.0, boasting a Super Regulator, not only with super low-noise but also with super low output impedance to maximize the total USB connection. Overall, the iFi Mercury3 USB computer audio cable sets a whole new standard for USB3.0 and USB2.0, with a focus on enhancing the listening experience.
