Prices from £50.00 (UK RRP)

Hooking up a computer to a DAC seems is becoming an increasingly popular way to listen to music and there are many purpose built DACs for doing exactly this. There are also a lot DACs being used primarily with CD and for that matter CD players with USB inputs. So connecting a laptop up to the DAC via a USB cable is a simple way to start exploring streaming services like Spotify or Tidal. If you do this then the C-USB is a very good cable to try.

Comparing different USB cables is very like comparing any other audio cables. The differences are very easy to hear. Pick a piece of music you know well, listen to it via a standard USB cable and then with the C-USB in place. Detail will be clearer, voices more natural and critically, music should sound more coherent and easier to listen to.

We understand the theory suggesting these cables should have no effect, but we don’t make cables unless they produce a better listening experience. Don’t take our word for it, however. Chord Company dealers will let you try one for yourself.
