Sound & Vision Hot Product
USB cables are clearly just as important as any other in a system, a state of affairs that Chord Company demonstrated very clearly. Chord launched a USB cable in their top-flight Sarum range and were demonstrating it between a MacBook and Arcam D33 DAC with the new Kudos Cardea Super 10 speakers. Compared to the companys entry-level Silver Plus USB, the Sarum USB delivered a considerably more relaxed, finely detailed and remarkably analog-like sound that produced greater image depth as well. Chords Nigel Finn also revealed he had discovered that DACs sound better with only one digital source connected, which is a bit of a shocker but possibly (hopefully) not true of all varieties.
