This is the Blue Heaven. The technical data taken from the original box reads:
"Proprietary FEP micro mono filament construction (developed by Nordost) delivers low dialectic loss and minimizes cable induced timing errors in critical digital signals... built from 4 silver plated OFC conductors optimally dimensioned for digital signal transfer and precision wound to correspond accurately with USB's
unique, hybrid twisted pair/non twisted pair geometry...double shielded and terminated to ensure electrical and sonic consistency. Full metal jacket connectors extend both that geometrical precision and shielding, while gold plated contacts maintain optimum signal transfer."
"The result is an ultra high speed, low-loss cable, specifically designed to deliver the best possible performance from computer audio sources."
I have found that this cable is reasonably fast as described and is very detailed, even micro detailed. It delivers in all areas and extends the bass response cleanly in my horn speakers (sub-woofer off). With great material it's exceptional, but with really sloppy engineering you'll lose layering and it will sound like any other excellent cable reproducing lesser quality material. I have been using a very nominally priced DAC--under 300.00 and have been amazed at the results! With a pricer DAC this cable really sings!

I'm selling so I can upgrade to a new DAC and I need to also buy another interconnet and power cord.
