About the AudioQuest Carbon
A high-performance USB-C cable
A high-performance USB-C cable
This AudioQuest Carbon USB cable is designed for high-performance gear and bandwidth-intensive content like high-res audio files. USB Type-C connections are fast becoming the norm because of their incredibly high transfer rate. This Carbon cable ensures those speedy transfers also occur accurately. It's a great choice for connecting a computer with a USB-C port to a component like a DAC or amplifier with a USB Type-B input.
Superior build quality
The Carbon's solid-core conductors features 5% silver-plating to improve accurate signal transfer. The cable itself is triple-shielded to prevent electronic interference. And the connectors are gold-plated to resist corrosion.

More details on the AudioQuest Carbon
USB-C to USB-B Cable: The AudioQuest Carbon Series USB-C to USB-B cable features conductor materials and construction techniques that deliver high-speed, low jitter, and low distortion to ensure clarity warmth, and maximum dyanamics for a wide-oepn soundstage from your Hi-Res digital music files. The USB-C connector is found on many of today's latest devices - such as MacBook, ChromeBook, iPad, Pixel, and Galaxy.
Semi-Solid Concentric 5% Silver Conductors: Semi-Solid Cocentric Conductors greatly reduce strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications, like USB audio. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a 100% silver cable, but priced much closer to a copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality USB cables.
Multi-Position Carbon-Based Noise-Dissipation & Crosstalk-Dissipation Systems: The Carbon Series USB-C to USB-B cable utilizes AudioQuest's Multi-Position Carbon-Based Noise-Dissipation & Crosstalk-Dissipation Systems. This helps to prevent unwanted noise & crosstalk from entering the audio signal that could cause your music files to sound distorted and unnatural. As a result, your Hi-Res music files sound unaltered and natural.
Gold-Plated Contacts & Strain-Relief System: The AudioQuest Carbon Series USB cable uses direct gold-plated contacts for its USB-C and USB-B connector for excellent signal transer and maximum resistant from corrosion. In addition, the AudioQuest Carbon Series USB cable incorporates a newly developed strain-relief system to provide robust durability between the USB cable and plug.
