QED Reference High Resolution USB Cable Updated

QED’s Reference High Resolution USB cable has been updated and improved, and the refreshed version is available now.

The new QED Reference High Resolution USB cable now sports a slimmer, more flexible profile, as well as enhanced jitter minimising performance, according to the British audio company.

Additionally, we are told that the new Reference High Resolution USB is informed by the results of the company’s exhaustive research into cable design since 1995, detailed in The Genesis Report.

Available now in 0.6m, 1m, 2m and 3m lengths and priced from £74.95 upwards, the Reference High Resolution USB cable uses a tightly controlled, 24 AWG, 99.999% oxygen-free copper twisted-pair geometry featuring low-permittivity, foamed-polyethylene dielectrics. All of which is uniformly bound by an aluminium/mylar wrap. Apparently, this arrangement is not usually found in a USB cable and is similar to that used in QED’s high-performance HDMI cables.

QED goes on to state that, because the impedance of the data lane is kept within strictly defined parameters, it exceeds the standard USB 2.0 specification by more than half. The upshot here, according to the manufacturer, is that any jitter added to the audio data stream is kept to a minimum, resulting in a better timed musical performance and increases the enjoyment of actually listening to music.

Furthermore, the updated cable is said to totally isolate the USB power from the data lanes by using a double layer shield comprising a 100% aluminium/mylar wrap and shield braid connected to the ground. Finally, the QED Reference High Resolution USB features a unique integral Zn/Mn floating, ferrite jacket which is there to absorb high-frequency noise signals generated both internally and externally.
