WireWorld Starlight 5.2 Digital Audio USB A to B Cable 7.0m
There is a fundamental difference between the transfer of computer data and digital audio signals. Computers are able to transfer digital data without loss, because the data moves in the robust form of blocks, which do not depend on specific timing between the sending and receiving devices. However, digital audio signals are continuous streams of data, which are quite fragile, since the digital processor must remain perfectly locked onto the timing of the signal to avoid data losses.
The Limitations of digital audio processors and cables create timing errors known as jitter, which remove portions of the audio signal and replace them with noise and distortion. Cables tend to round off the square waveforms of the signal, making them less clear to the processor, thus increasing jitter. This rounding effect varies greatly among cables and a truly superior digital audio cable can make great improvements in sound quality.
WireWorld digital audio cables utilize unique designs specifically developed to minimize jitter by providing sharper, cleaner leading edges on the digital waveform. At each price level, they provide the lowest jitter available, producing distinct improvements in clarity, image focus, smoothness and dynamic range.
WireWorld USB cables feature a unique flat design that allows it to function over significantly longer runs than conventional USB cables and provides improved sound quality in media server, PC audio, and other digital music applications.
Our unique flat cable design not only improves performance, but it allows you to connect digital music devices over longer distances – for instance, a laptop PC across the room from the home theater system
The Starlight® USB is the first true ultra-high performance USB digital audio cable in the world.
The unique flat design of the Starlight® USB cable was derived from WireWorld’s award-winning flat HDMI cables. This elegant cable utilizes oversized 24 gauge silver-clad OFC conductors and a proprietary low-loss ground path, to provide substantially higher fidelity than other USB cables, regardless of cost. Those advantages also enable Starlight® to function in much longer lengths than other USB cables, while enhancing clarity, depth and dynamics in media server, PC audio, and other digital music applications.
