With the move towards streaming and the sheer number of high quality digital to analogue converters now available, the right choice of digital cable is really important. Digital cables, like their analogue counterparts, can have a profound effect on the tonal, rhythmic and dynamic properties of a system.
There is a common belief that because data cables are carrying a digital signal they can have little effect on the overall sound quality. Repeated listening tests show that this is not the case. Digital cables can and do have an effect on the sound quality of the system they are used with. Digital cables are capable of affecting levels of detail, dynamics, sound staging and the rhythmic and tonal characteristics of a system.
