Blue Truth Audiophile USB Cable Overview
When looking at advanced signals over USB, one would consider it is a direct articulation of 1's and 0's. However, it is more nuanced than that. Under a specific voltage, the signal says: "this is a 0." Above a specific voltage, it says "this is a 1." So, a 1 might be a 3.2 volt signal, and a 0 may be a 2.9. Since information move happens quickly and frequently, it doesn't take much to slant a 1 to a 0, or a 0 to a 1. The computerized signal isn't this arrangement of flawlessly bundled squares, all marked 1 or 0.
Computers are extremely "noisy" on the USB connection and interference is a factor. Things like EMI and magnetic fields become a factor- whatever influences that sign can cause signal deformation. Shielding, high-quality materials, and filtering on a USB cable can help prevent that interference, and make signal degradation far less likely. The result is a much cleaner and better decoding experience for your music.
Discrete filter circuits (capacitors) for both power and data signals are employed at the source (A) end. These greatly reduce noise and data errors that come from most computers and most USB source devices.
Silver-plated copper for the data path to deliver the most accurate signals and which are completely isolated by 2 layers of AL foil and braid shielding.
