The Mercury USB cable takes the standard USB transmission standard and re-writes it for high-end audio. Crucially, the special geometry adheres to the 90 ohm impedance specification better than even the USB 2.0 standard. Resistance is 3x lower than textbook. The Final USB machined connectors are proprietary for exceptional shielding and rigidity. The atypical RF3filter design is user-adjustable. With all these technological breakthroughs, one audition and there is no going back.
The signal runs through the cable and connector. Therefore, the connector must be as good as the cable. Most USB Cables utilise moulded plastic covered connections. Plastic cannot shield the high frequencies present in the USB Data link, so noise will radiate out. Durability is also compromised. The FINAL USB connectors provides impeccable end-to-end RF shielding, being machined entirely from solid aluminium. Gold-plated connections make for years of steadfast service.
