The Concord Powered USB Cable System will unleash the quality in your streamed digital files over USB.
Around 80% of all USB DACs, regardless of price, use the streaming device 5V power supply to power the incoming USB integrated circuit in the DAC itself. Indeed, less expensive DACs often use this 5V supply to power several chips on the USB board. This entirely compromises the sound quality. The Concord Powered USB system offers a perfect solution to this problem, using either an Astin Trew USB Cable option or a third party cable from another supplier.
The 5V power is supplied via a Never Connected© circuit and the cable is optimised perfectly to meet the USB specification, offering the best sound quality.
