In like new condition is an Audioquest Diamond .75m usb cable. It is from a smoke, pet, and child free home. Here is what Chris Martens of HiFi+ had to say about this cable:
AUDIOQUEST DIAMOND USB CABLE

First, low-level details—and especially high-frequency harmonics, reverberant cues in the music, and other small textural and transient details—became much more audible, intelligible, and coherent with the Diamond USB cable in play. This wasn’t a small difference. But then, perhaps as a result of that first set of sonic improvements, another wonderful thing happened, which is that the system fairly exploded into a whole new realm of intensely holographic, three-dimensional sound. This one was one of those changes so dramatic that, figuratively speaking, it grabs the listener by the lapels and says, “Now please stop what you’re doing, sit down, be still, and pay very close attention to the way this piece of music unfolds.” Even from just a few feet away, the little iFi monitors—aided and abetted by AQ’s Diamond USB cable—began throwing beautifully and ridiculously expansive 3D soundstages. It was truly something to behold.
And then, I switched from speakers to headphones, which caused my jaw to drop yet again. The iFi Retro Stereo 50 amp had struck me from the outset as having good performance potential as a headphone-orientated amp/DAC, but the Diamond USB cables dramatically converted that potential into practical reality. Sonic images through my HiFiMAN HE-560 planar magnetic headphones suddenly took on almost sculptural qualities of shape, solidity, and dimension. In fact, in trying to think about the impact the Diamond USB cable was having on the music, the best analogy I could come up with was that regular USB cables give you something akin to a high-quality photograph of a sculptural object, whereas the Diamond USB cable enables you—figuratively speaking—to hold the sculptural object in your hands, to examine its contours, and to explore at length its variegated textures and surfaces. In short, with the Diamond USB cable installed, there is a whole different level of vital connection with the music...Even if you think you’ll never, ever buy one, I urge you to go hear AQ’s Diamond USB cable in action if you get the chance. If nothing else, it will be an interesting learning experience. At the same time, let me caution you that prolonged listening to digital audio systems through AQ’s Diamond USB cable is potentially habit-forming (or at least that’s been my recent experience). After all, once you’ve experienced digital audio taken to the next level via a super-capable USB cable, its only natural that you might want to make such a cable your own. Hey, don’t say we didn’t warn you…
