micro iUSB3.0:

USB carries audio AND power. Many USB Audio devices power at least some part, often all of the Audio Device from the power supplied by the computer via its USB Port. The power supply from USB Ports on PC’s is variable in quality, but always contaminated by noise.

Many common Laptops and PC’s put out tens of millivolts of noise. That is as much noise as you often get music signal and much more noise
than the delicate, small details and nuances in a musical performance. Another issue is the presence of a ground connection between the Computer and the USB Audio device. This can create earth/ground loops that even if they produce no audible hum or buzz, sound quality can be impaired.

Adding the iUSBPower USB Power supply and breaking the ground loop using the IsoEarth gives a major improvement in clarity, detail and musicality. Any audio device starts with the power it receives and with the iUSBPower USB Power supply your USB Audio device gets power so pure, it has even lower noise than a battery!

But the true secret weapon is the ability to break ground loops. We have measured an improvement of over 10 times
even in system that are already optimised and have no audible noise.

Gemini 1.5m:

The iFi Gemini Dual-Headed USB cable will rule them all. Audio and power cables are not laid side by side yet in the USB configuration because of its origins, transmits this way. The iFi Gemini carries Audio + Power in two separate cables. Critically, the special geometry adheres to the 90 ohm impedance specification better than even the USB 2.0 standard. Resistance is 4x lower than textbook.

The signal runs through the cable and connector. Therefore, the connector must be as exceptional as the cable. Most USB Cables use 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.
