Shunyata Research Alpha USB Cable

The internationally patented ΞTRON® technology is perhaps the most compelling of Shunyata Research’s technologies, with its ability to measurably lower dielectric distortion and preserve the original signal’s integrity. ΞTRON® cables have earned a legendary reputation among reviewers, customers and sound professionals for their ability to eclipse the performance of even the most cost prohibitive cables on the market.

There are very few great quality USB connectors so we created our own.  It features an easy-to-grip, large-diameter head-shell that accepts large gauge wiring. It has an exceptional strain-relief system that ensures long-term reliability even with heavy usage.  The contacts are made from high-conductivity gold-plated copper assuring minimal signal junction impedance. 

There are many problems with off-the-shelf USB cables including poor quality conductors and dielectrics and insufficient shielding.  Conventional cables induce high amounts of signal jitter and phase noise degrading sonic performance.

The SR-USB-Cable is an exclusive Shunyata Research product that was designed to achieve the ultimate levels of performance without regard to production cost. It starts with our highest grade of ArNi® wire featuring pure OHNO copper in a VTX™ geometry with fluorocarbon dielectrics.  The power wiring is a completely different type of conductor designed specifically for DC power transfer minimizing any signal transmission interference. Massive silver-plated copper braided shields protect the delicate signals from external RFI/EMI.
