LightSpeed USB uses a unique topology called Ultra-high Speed Differential Pair (or USDP) which gives LightSpeed up to 20 times the bandwidth of USB 2.0 high speed, ensuring optimal signal clocking. In fact, LightSpeed’s astounding 10 Gigabits per second bandwidth is twice as fast as USB 3.0. Additionally, its 2-in-1 architecture physically separates the signal leg from the five volt power leg, preventing source-generated noise from disturbing the digital signal. The result: a bit-perfect, time-perfect USB cable.
LightSpeed USB comes in a standard configuration and a split configuration. Standard LightSpeed is used similarly to most USB cables: one connector on each end. Split LightSpeed has one USB-B connector and two USB-A connectors: one for signal, one for power. This configuration can be used with self-powered DACs, such as Light Harmonic’s Da Vinci DAC.
A ultra-wide bandwidth USB-A to USB-B cable (over four times the USB 2.0 Spec) that allows for perfect delivery of all USB audio information. Innovative dual-connector design separates power and data conductors to minimize noise and interference for maximum performance. Note: requires two USB ports on your PC or Mac.
