Shielded USB 2.0 cable

Modern audio systems require only few cables. It's therefore even more important to choose them selectively. The top USB cable in the VOVOX product range.

      • solid-core copper conductors
      • cryogenically treated
      • optimized cable design for digital signals
      • cable coating with natural fibers
      • shielded

Connectors for VOVOX® textura IC digital USB

Our USB connectors are manually soldered on the cable and afterwards shapely injection-molded. An ideal combination of careful manufacture with professional cable production. The plastic used consisting of polyurethane is extremely robust and handy.

Made in Switzerland

VOVOX® sound conductors are hand-assembled in Switzerland. The cables, including the solder, are lead-free.

Can you hear a digital cable?

Is it possible that cables have an audible influence on the transmission of digital signals? One is one and zero is zero. The question is justified, the argumentation is correct. There is only one problem: practical tests show that even digital cables are indeed audible and neither we can offer any proven explanation of this phenomenon. However, what we can offer are cables that in our opinion yield optimal tonal results. Our digital cables are based on the same solid-core concept and materials that we use for our analog cables. Moreover, the influence on sound quality is similar to the analog cables: higher resolution, more detailed spacial depth, more natural sound - in short, more musical enjoyment. 

Minimized Boundary Surfaces

Cables have many surfaces, or more precisely expressed, boundary surfaces, like the grain boundaries in copper, or the boundary between the conductor surface and the insulation. Each boundary is a source of imperfection. VOVOX® sound conductors are made of single solid core conductors. Using this construction, the total boundary surface is reduced by up to 90% compared to stranded wires.

Cable coating with natural fibers

The contact surface between the conductor and the dielectric medium must accommodate complex interactions. Thanks to the tried-and-tested solid-core concept, these effects can be efficiently reduced. VOVOX® textura fortis, textura and vocalis are further improved by a fine meshwork of natural fibers that form a protective wrapping around the conductor. Triboelectrical phenomena are no longer possible. The difference is audible: tranquillity instead of disturbance, an incredibly tidy stage, perfect transparency. 

Cryogenic treatment

In the deep-temperature or cryogenic treatment the cables go through a controlled cooling down process up to -180° C  before gently warming to room temperature. This procedure causes modifications in the structure of the conductor material giving a positive effect on sound quality. The difference in quality between textura and vocalis digital cables is based on such effect.
