Do red wine and USB cables mix well? I tried it last night.

All USB cables ‘sound’ the same. Or do they?

Personally, I’ve used Chord’s range of USB cables, with good results.

I’m delighted you posted that link as it saves me rummaging for my hard copy!  I don’t think they’ve run these tests since.

That's the one I'd come across - presumably you have the replacement model

Yes I think so but I will check with the cable owner.

And I thought it was me.  As recently posted I changed an Audioquest USB cable £40 - for a Tellurium Black £300.  This was a MAJOR upgrade in SQ. No, a VERY MAJOR upgrade😂

I first met the Sablon guy ( Mark?) when he was cutting up Nordost and re -terminating  them , after he brought some of his power cables here, he told me that his power cable could cure my room mode issue, oh how we laughed.

Completely (infinitely?) baffled by this suggestion

Nick said better bass, If the bass is better it will be noticable on a recording.

Three conclusions I have arrived at regarding boutique USB cables ... (1) they are outrageously expensive for what looks like a DIY effort (2) if they look like a DIY effort, I could probably make a better go myself for about £50 using top quality parts (3) I don't see any evidence that they have any level of USB certification.

For these reasons, as they say in Dragon's Den, I am out.

Agreed  . .  and until yesterday I would have agreed with you that there was no need after getting the DAC to consider different USB cables but I have now changed my mind.

Agreed...i was saying generally if you want a percieved improvement then a better dac will probably be money better spent? Maybe it was demon drink lol👿  ill try to avoid listening to hifi when i drink my whisky! 😋😉 not much chance of that happening! Lol

Well..you have a exacting dac.. WHF always say if your system is good enough..then this cable is a revelation! ( any very expensive cable)  i guess your experience bears this out..hifi is the gift that keeps costing!  Lol..

And if it brings you happiness....then its money well spent!  🙂
