Have you heard of Tomita? You will soon!So i have tried 5 different USB cables from my streamer to my DAC.
This is simply carrying data so why does it make a difference, i was sceptical paying out
on an audio USB cable .
I started with a box standard usb printer cable usb a to usb b, worked fine but wanted a proper audio cable.
tried the free usb cable a chord electronics one not a chord company, worked better bit more detail but sounded harsh and was fatiguing to listen to.
Tried a Tellurium Q blue sound was a lot better more bass detail and more relaxed.
Tried a chord company signature again an improvement in every area but was not that much better than the tellurium so sold it of to expensive to keep for the minimal difference.
Got a Van Den Hul one on offer for £130 from £300 brand new so thought id try it, i prefer it to the Tellurium
again just gives a more realistic presentation of everything and the bass and drums were much tighter.
I was a sceptic i understand how cables can make a difference on analogue gear but how is this possible
on a data cable i can't get my head around the difference but have to say it is not a clear case of more expensive is better i prefer the van den hul to the chord signature one and is a quater of the price.
Not wanting to open up a cable debate but how does this work and why, if you think there is no difference then do a blind test with some different cables on a system you know well, it may open your eyes and shock your ears.
I am dumbfounded as to how all sounded different.
