The cable uses 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver 28AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors for the data legs with a double layer shield to ward off outside interference. The 2 power conductors utilize 2 x 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Copper 28AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors for seamless power supply.
Standard USB cables are not up to the task of large bit rate information so Moon Audio has optimized this cable for audio transmission of large High Res files. We recommend using Apps such as Flac Player and the ONKYO HF Player. These will allow you to play your higher resolution files.
Make sure to always rip your Audio to iTunes™ or other audio software in either Wav or Flac format for best results. The cable is made to carry a digital signal from an Apple iDevice such as an iTouch, iPhone or iPad to another digital audio device.
