Chord Company Shawline USB Cable
Shawline USB digital audio interconnect
Prices from £200.00 (UK RRP)
More and more people are discovering that a computer, a USB cable and a USB DAC can be a very good way to listen to music. There’s also no getting away from the fact that USB cables are extremely cheap and in theory have no effect on the quality of the digital signal they carry. Our problem is that every time we sit down to listen, we find they do have an effect.
We have a wide range of Chord Company cables available here at Phonostage Audio and we also have a great selection on Demo at our premises and indeed we love them! Super performance and extremly nicely put together... They are definitely recommended by us!
Shawline USB cable was developed in line with The Chord Company's usual principle of using materials that they know work well and conductor geometries that were established during the development of the Sarum and Signature USB cables. So at this point Chord can produce a prototype and sit down and listen to it. Be it blind testing or development listening. Only when they are completely happy that the cable makes a significant improvement is the cable put into production. The Shawline USB is built using high quality, silver-plated signal and power conductors. The power conductors are separately shielded from the signal conductors and the insulation is a specialised hard skin polyethylene developed for high speed signal transfer. There is also an overall shield, so this combined with the internal shielding, means that the signal cables are protected to very high frequencies.
Like the Signature USB cables, the Shawline USB also uses a specially developed version of the Tuned ARAY conductor geometry. The cable is hand-built, with silver-plated USB A or USB B connectors.
Available in 1m lengths as standard. Custom lengths can be built to order however a lead time is incurred of approximately 2.5 weeks (this is approximate).
