Better cables for better sound
Better cables for better sound
For high-res digital audio signals, accurate transfer of data is critical. The AudioQuest Cinnamon USB cable is designed to improve that connection. This cable can reduce the timing errors or "jitter" that often makes digital music sound less clear and somewhat flat.
The Cinnamon's solid-core conductors features 1.25% silver-plating to improve accurate signal transfer. Hard-Cell Foam (HCF) insulation keeps energy from leaking out of the conductors, preserving signal strength. And both the cable and conductors are reinforced to prevent strain and keep the connections solid.

More details on the AudioQuest Cinnamon
USB-C to USB-B Cable: The AudioQuest Cinnamon 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 1.25% Silver Conductors: Semi-Solid Concentric 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 solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality USB cables.
Hard-Cell Foam Insulation: Hard-Cell Foam (HCF) Insulation ensures critical signal-pair geometry. Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy. Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Hard-Cell Foam Insulation is similar to the Foamed-PE used in our more affordable Bridges & Falls cables, and is nitrogen-injected to create air pockets. Because nitrogen (like air) does not absorb energy and therefore does not release any energy from or into the conductor, distortion is reduced. In addition, the stiffness of the material allows the cable's conductors to maintain a stable relationship along the cable's full length, producing a stable impedance character and further minimizing distortion..
Gold-Plated Contacts & Strain-Relief System: The AudioQuest Cinnamon 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 Cinnamon Series USB cable incorporates a newly developed strain-relief system to provide robust durability between the USB cable and plug.
