CAVO USB AUDIOQUEST MOD. FOREST A--B
Designed to get the most out of Mac or PC based audio, AudioQuest USB cables combine superior metals, cable geometry & insulation. By eliminating interference from the USB power conductors, these elements prevent the uncorrectable corruption of audio data along the signal conductors.
SOLID CONDUCTORS: Both of Forest USB’s conductors are solid. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat dirty, harsh sound. Solid conductors are the most important ingredient enabling Forest USB’s very clear sound.
LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC): AudioQuest USB’s LGC (Long-Grain Copper) allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding “loss,” without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.
AudioQuest Forest USB Data Cable:
Low jitter, low distortion audio.
Signal conductors controlled for digital audio direction.
USB Audio (Universal Serial Bus):
For many applications, the speed of digital communication is important. Most visibly, speed is about transferring large files as quickly as possible, or carrying enough data for an HD video. For USB audio (and for HDMI audio), speed is critical not because of how-much how-fast, but because time relationships within a digital stream are critical to the reconstruction of the analog wave formthat brings information, music and joy to our ears. Time-based damage (jitter) to this information within the data package makes the sound small and flat instead of 3D, harsh and foggy instead of smooth and clear.
