Clarus Introduces USB for Crimson Series of Cables


Clarus-Crimson-USB-cable-small.jpgClarus recently introduced a USB cable for the company's Crimson Series, specifically designed for High Speed USB 2.0 computer audio applications. The engineering of the Crimson USB cable is the result of careful consideration of the complex issues associated with the design of digital cable, namely the preservation of signal integrity including minimization of jitter and the elimination of noise.

To satisfy these design requirements, the Crimson USB cable is manufactured from heavy gauge PCOCC copper, Pure Copper by the Ohno Continuous Casting--a process that allegedly yields the purest copper available today. The USB features 20AWG power conductors to ensure there is adequate current flow to USB audio devices.

To reduce jitter and timing issues, the Crimson USB cable is manufactured using high-precision wire twisting machines that reportedly ensure match twisted pairs. Skin effect is minimized by plating the solid-core PCOCC signal conductors with 6.1% solid silver. For noise elimination, there are effectively six layers of shielding to prevent the power signal or outside EMI/RFI from corrupting the digital USB signal. This heavy-duty protection also prevents emission of the high frequency USB signal from the cable, which if leaked, would adversely effect nearby cabling and electronics.

Like all Crimson Series cables, the new USB is covered with a black and red woven jacket.

Now available in 1 meter ($250) and 2 meter ($350) lengths.
