The CAD USB cable proved to be a great discovery, it places itself firmly in the company of other rare exceptional audio components that, when working together in a harmonious way, give us the pleasure and opportunity to see our hobby (madness?) from a different perspective. On more than a few occasions it proved to be capable of staggeringly real sonic reproduction levels - only limited by the systems` overall limitations and those of the recordings. In my view exceptional audio components are those that inspire us to explore the unknown musical worlds and direct us away from the sound dissecting behavior. The CAD USB cable is absolutely one of them and carries my highest recommendation.
