AudioQuest Carbon Series USB Cable
It's easy to accomplish 100% shield coverage. Preventing captured Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System (NDS). Traditional shield systems typically absorb and then drain noise/RF energy to component ground, modulating and distorting the critical "reference" ground plane, which in turn causes a distortion of the signal. NDS's alternating layers of metal and carbon-loaded synthetics "shield the shield," absorbing and reflecting most of this noise/RF energy before it reaches the layer attached to ground.
Features and Specifications:
- Solid 5% Silver-Plated conductors eliminate inter-strand distortion.
- Digital audio conductors controlled for direction.
- Carbon-Based Noise-Dissipation for USB A - B and USB 3.0 A - 3.0 Micro
- Solid Polyethylene costs more than foam, but better ensures critical signal-pair geometry
