Audioquest set itself on a quest of proving Sony's theory of the “Perfect sound forever” wrong and changing their attitude of “it's just digital, so all CD players sound the same.” With introduction of high-quality USB cables especially designed for DAC applications, Audioquest took the experience of digital audio listening to a whole new level.
USB audio signals are high-frequency signals that travel mostly on the surface of the conductor. As silver is an excellent conductor of high-frequency signals, the main conductor of the USB B Carbon cable is plated with high-purity silver on the surface. This way, the audio signals can easily travel on the through the cable, without introduction of any distortions and make the copper cable perform like solid-silver conductor.
Clever Insulation Design
A solid material in touch with the conductor becomes a part of an imperfect circuit. Insulation used in standard USB cables induces noise and distortion in the signals, thus, degrading the quality of signals. As air absorbs next-to-zero energy and Polyethylene is a low-loss material with benign distortion profile, Audioquest has used Foamed-Polyethylene insulation for the Carbon USB A-to-B cable. This air-filled insulation material prevents signal-losses introduced due to the insulating layer and causes very low out-of-focus effect.
Audioquest's Noise-Dissipation System prevents the RF interference from modulating the equipment's ground. It implies Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics that prevent most of the RF interference from reaching the ground plane of the equipment.
To ensure best terminations, the Carbon USB B cable utilizes direct-silver plated pins that are attached using the best solder material. Thanks to the low silver content of the solder, the connection quality of solder used by AQ is far superior to traditional USB cables.
USB cables result in pristine quality transmission of high-definition digital data and hence, a USB-enabled DAC can deliver better sound quality than even the best CD players.
