The award winning Panatela USB cable has now been upgraded to full Reserva specification with the addition of enhanced shielding and better sounding outer cover. This has dropped the noise floor considerably to the benefit of detail and dynamics, with greater tonal texture. Not only has the sound improved but so has the price!
Here's some reviews on the original model -

To complete the full loom, I replaced my existing (and very competent) TotalDac USB cable with the Sablon Panatela USB. My goodness, I really was not expecting the immediate transformation. Those doubters who excrete their diatribe about it all being ones and zeros and that a USB cable can't possibly make any difference should really open up to audiophile quality USB cables as they really do make a substantial improvement.
My listening commenced with the soul-stirring Mercury Living Presence recording of Romanian Rhapsody number 1 by Enescu. The delightful woodwind exchanges that open this glorious piece took on super vividness and a lifelike timbre that I hadn't heard before in my system. I was then greeted with a really deep and full soundstage with sweet violins floating before me. The pizzicati motives exuded a fidelity with which I had not heard before in my system. Great stuff.
After a very late night session perusing my vast catalogue via jremote to jriver, I concluded that all facets of my system had improved. Very highly recommended indeed.

Everyone that has heard this line of cables agrees… musical as all get out, wonderfully articulate, reasonably priced, quality galore… love the look and feel too. Flexible and well… they are simply stellar in every way. All are clear winners. All cut from the same cloth. Literally and figuratively. Music times ten.
Their USB cable is simply stunning too. One of my clear favorites. ...... Smooth, rich, resolution, presence..… "Oh my"
