We’ve teamed up with Purist Audio Design to offer you the chance to win Purist’s award-winning 30th Anniversary USB! Declared “very highly recommended,” the 30th Anniversary USB was reviewed in last month’s issue by Nicholas Ripley.
Ripley felt that, “The overall sound with this cable is just the right side of ‘dark’ to be full of musical gravitas rather than ‘moody’, and is also powerful, weighty, and monumental when it needs to be.” He also felt that “the Purist cable wants for nothing in terms of soundstage retrieval and detail; and detail across the board, too.”
The Purist Audio Design 30th Anniversary USB Audio Cable is a high resolution, high speed cable that will pass a high quality DAC signal over longer lengths than expected with a wide assortment of computer interfaces. It uses the largest gauge conductors allowed by USB standards to allow for accurate signal transfer up to the format’s theoretical maximum length of five metres. Few cables can achieve this in reality and this allows computers to be located away from audio components without compromising performance.
Normally retailing for $1,500, we are giving away a 30th Anniversary USB cable for free, to one lucky reader! To enter, just answer the question below.
What is the longest recommended length for a USB cable?
A. 1 metres
B. 3 metres
C. 5 metres
D. 7 metres
