Element Mini USB from Atlas Cables is very well-reviewed a Type A to Mini B audio interconnect, typically used with portable headphone amps/DACs.
A freebie USB cable (as supplied with many audio products) typically sounds grainy and crude, with high levels of digital background noise degrading audio quality. Atlas USB cables draw on knowledge gained with hi-speed video connections, combined with extensive and ongoing research into the specifics of USB & Ethernet-type cables in audio applications.
Silver-plated high purity copper conductors with a triple-layer screen and precision cold-weld connectors combine to provide optimal signal transmission and demonstrably superior sound quality.
Element Mini USB is available as a Type A - Mini B in the following lengths:
- 0.50 metres
- 1.00 metres
- 1.50 metres
- 2.00 metres
- 3.00 metres
- 5.00 metres
- Custom lengths available - please call us!
- USB Type A Connector - Precision moulded, 360° screened USB Type A connector with superior transmission & reception properties, maintaining the termination characteristic impedance.
- OFC Copper Conductor - OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) was developed based on research that sound quality was related to the quality of copper and the processing used during cable manufacture.
- PEF (Foamed Polyethylene) Dielectric - The foaming process uses a blowing agent, of which there are two types. Atlas use the gas-foamed method which creates a more inert, consistent and higher quality product.
- Multi-Core Construction - Optimised conductors (one for signal path, the other for power) enclosed within a non-conducting screen. The configuration minimises noise and interference.
