    Recently Adam (of this parish) and I were mucking around with computers and DACs and had to use a long cable in one setup. Even though the price of this cable is very low I was impressed with the transparency (of sound) and the build quality of the actual cable.

    I second Edward's impressions, 'twas a very long cable and sounded fine to us.

    Thanks for the very kind advice and the link I did already have a 3m standard cable that I bought to use with my printer that I have just connected up and it works perfectly fine. However I think I would still like to try something slightly fancier perhaps one of the c line chord or supra or something along those lines.

    PLEASE I'm fully aware there are those of you who wouldn't spend more than a few pounds and those on the opposite side who believe cables are the icing on the cake and will spend thousands. I myself have had cables that retail for 800 and others that cost 5 and have my own very definite ideas about cables and don't require educating or desire an argument about it.
    Excuse my slightly curt wording but I have become embroiled in several online aruements about cables and am pretty bored by the subject I just want to try a slightly better made slightly better shielded cable and would be very pleased to hear if you have one for sale.

    Apologies Tara, I did not realise you were looking for high end cables. Sorry I don't have any for sale. I use Supra cables but in the past I have used a SOtM cable between my computer and DAC and there was a nice lift to fine detail. Sadly I don't have that cable anymore. I do use a SOtM ethernet cable and that, likewise, provides a nice lift to micro detail.

    Good luck with your search. Perhaps you could usefully amend your original post to say you are not looking for a long printer type cable, but a high end audiophile cable.

    I do actually wonder if a powered USB hub would do anything to clean up the signal if connected to a linear PSU? I believe that hubs reclock the signal, you would think that a USB 3 hub would have quite a decent reclock circuit.

    Might be worth an experiment.
