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 waveform that 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. AudioQuest USB Type-C cables featuring conductor materials and construction techniques that have allowed AQs other USB cables to achieve Best-In-Class recognition worldwide. With the newer USB Type-C connector quickly becoming commonplace on many devices AQs line of Type-C equipped USB cables will allow users to connect with Type-C enabled devices such as MacBook ChromeBook Pixel Galaxy Note 7 etc. In addition ALL of AudioQuests USB cables incorporate a newly developed strain-relief system to provide robust durability between the USB cable and plug. Solid 1.25% Silver Conductors for Improved Digital Performance Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications like HDMI audio and video. These signals being such a high frequency travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver the performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality HDMI cables. Hard-Cell Foam Insulation Hard-Cell Foam (HCF) Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry. Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials.
