Optimized for Streaming Audio

LightSpeed 1G Micro

LightSpeed USB uses a unique topology called Ultra-high Speed Differential Pair (or USDP) which gives LightSpeed up to 20 times the bandwidth of USB 2.0 high speed, ensuring optimal signal clocking. In fact, LightSpeed's astounding 10 Gigabits per second bandwidth is twice as fast as USB 3.0. Additionally, its 2-in-1 architecture physically separates the signal leg from the five volt power leg, preventing source-generated noise from disturbing the digital signal. The result: a bit-perfect, time-perfect USB cable.

LightSpeed USB comes in a standard configuration and a split configuration. Standard LightSpeed is used similarly to most USB cables: one connector on each end. Split LightSpeed has one USB-B connector and two USB-A connectors: one for signal, one for power. This configuration can be used with self-powered DACs, such as Light Harmonic's Da Vinci DAC.

All LightSpeed 1G cables feature a wide bandwidth design (over twice the USB 2.0 specification) optimized for streaming audio.

LightSpeed 1G
A two meter USB A to USB B cable. Perfect for connection of high performance DACs to PCs or Macs for music playback.

 

LightSpeed 2G
A two meter ultra-wide bandwidth USB-A to USB-B cable (over four times the USB 2.0 Spec) that allows for perfect delivery of all USB audio information. Innovative dual-connector design separates power and data conductors to minimize noise and interference for maximum performance. Note: requires two USB ports on your PC or Mac. For single port applications, please see our 1G cables.

LightSpeed 10G
• 10Gbps rated bandwidth
• 99.9997% pure copper conductors
• 30 micro 99.9% Gold Plated A Grade Phosphor Bronze USB Connectors
• If you break it, we'll replace it. Warranty is lifetime and transferable, no matter how many times its been traded, sold or given away. No sales receipt or proof of purchase needed.
• LightSpeed USB is light, flexible, and a serious over-achiever, outperforming the competition, and exceeding all future standards. In real-world listening rooms, it's easy to install and performs beautifully. You WILL hear the difference- even if you think all USB cables are the same.

Reviews


  • "Expensive perhaps but considering that I have tried interconnects at twice its price that didn’t affect music anywhere near to the same degree as the Lightspeed [10G]; the asking price sure seems reasonable. This is an outstanding product and warmly recommended."

  • "The sound coming from these cables is unbelievable."
