See the reviews of the LITESPD digital cables in Stereo Times, Dagogo and Positive Feedback Online! The WyWires LITESPD line includes S/PDIF, AES/EBU and USB 2.0 A/B. These digital cables retain the smooth, detailed and organic presentation that WyWires have developed a reputation for. The WyWires S/PDIF, in particular provides a natural and holographic presentation with all the detail and soundstage majesty you would expect from a premium cable but without a hint of digital glare or nastiness. This cable will enable your iPod Dock or Digital Transport connected to a good DAC to rival high quality analog. The S/PDIF and the AES/EBU are available in the Blue series starting at $199, Silver series at $499 and the Gold series with Bybee Purifiers at $749. The USB is Silver only at $429.
Here is what Adam LaBarge said in The current issue of Dagogo:
"Usually I see 16-bit digital audio as a necessary evil. For better or worse I tend to prefer vinyl. Even at the sub-$5,000 price point, I'd rather have a $5,000 analog turnable (AN-T2 anybody?), cartridge, phono amp combo, than a $20,000 CD Player. No I'm not insane, nor do I need my ears examined. It is just what I prefer to listen to. But I've not been spinning that much vinyl since Alex was nice enough to let me use his new digital cable. I'll be honest. At first I was hesitant. But the WyWires digital cable, for me, has actually been the best thing I've heard (at a reasonable price point) in digital audio, in a long time. Sure the DaVinciAudio DAC, at standard 16-bit, is outstanding. But it is also thirty-two thousand dollars, or something outrageous like that. The PS Audio Transport and DAC, at 24-bit, sounds great, but at $10k, I'd rather spend that on a full blown analog only system. So with sever reservation and not much expectation, I put in the Audio Note DAC One Sig, connected in the Granite Audio interconnects, the last interconnects I used the DAC with, queued up a track, and was floored. Now I can't let go. The harsh in-your-face sound, the flat Hollywood character sound, is gone. Replaced by formed three-dimensional, distinctly articulated, and granular level detail, music. Now please don't get me wrong, the cable can't possibly turn swine into pearls. But if you are looking to add liveliness and the ever ethereal "musicality" to your digital system, the WyWires digital cable comes highly recommended."
Here is a customer comment:
"Your LITESPD SPDIF cable is awesome. Not sure I can add anything to the description of earlier reviews: extended in both frequency extremes with taut bass and extended highs without glare; overall a very natural sound and balance. I will add that in my system it has proven trans-formative, which really surprised me � bits are bits was the logic. The cable eliminated a digital fingerprint that I had come to believe was a constant in even very good digital processing. I�m loving it! So, in short, I�m keeping the cable and it is putting a smile on my face every day". Phil L.
