Great Audiophile Gift Ideas For The
2020 Holiday Season
Kimber Kable B BUS Cu USB Cable
Kimber's very high quality B-Bus USB cable ($50 for 0.5 meter length) is without a doubt much higher quality than the throw-away cables that come standard with most electronics equipment. Our very own Dick Olsher has made very positive comments about the difference in the sound quality of one's digital system when using this cable. Kimber has earned a great reputation for making excellent cable and this is one example of many I could recommend.
"Metallurgy, geometry, dielectric & termination methods can vary greatly in USB cables," says Kimber Kable. "Our copper based solutions deliver sonically superior results over "in the box” cables. The difference is clearly audible and closer to Kimber Kable's definition of musical."
Kimber Kable's B BUS Cu USB cable uses silver-plated (6.1%) wire that are maximum gauge signal and power conductors. High-density polyethylene signal conductor dielectric keeps the signal flowing purely and the included ferrite noise reduction beads keeps unwanted noise away. You can order it in the highly popular USB Type A or the dedicated USB B connector.
Since we're keeping our Great Audiophile Gift ideas at reasonable pricing, we admit this might not be state-of-the-art with pure silver wire, which will sent you back hundreds of dollars, yet for only $50 it is a no-brainer... plus a great place to start (or continue) your journey into digital audio.
