There is a fundamental difference between the transfer of computer data and
audio signals. Computers are able to transfer digital data without
loss, because the data moves in the robust form of blocks, which do not
depend on specific timing between the sending and receiving devices.
However, digital audio signals are continuous streams of data, which are
quite fragile, since the digital processor must remain perfectly locked
onto the timing of the signal to avoid data losses.
The Limitations of digital audio processors and
cables create timing errors known as jitter, which remove portions of
the audio signal and replace them with noise and distortion. Cables tend
to round off the square waveforms of the signal, making them less clear
to the processor, thus increasing jitter. This rounding effect varies
greatly among cables and a truly superior digital audio cable can make
great improvements in sound quality.
WireWorld digital audio cables utilize unique
designs specifically developed to minimize jitter by providing sharper,
cleaner leading edges on the digital waveform. At each price level, they
provide the lowest jitter available, producing distinct improvements in
clarity, image focus, smoothness and dynamic range.
WireWorld USB cables feature a unique flat design
that allows it to function over significantly longer runs than
conventional USB cables and provides improved sound quality in media
server, PC audio, and other digital music applications.
unique flat cable design not only improves performance, but it allows
you to connect digital music devices over longer distances – for
instance, a laptop PC across the room from the home theater system.
