The Most Beautiful Sound Firewire 800 to Firewire 400 Cable was designed to deliver the most neutral tonal balance while providing an ultra quiet background. Atomic Audio Labs believes that lowering the noise floor increases the soundstage, depth and detail. Our design goals were to improve these things that we think make music more enjoyable, without changing the tonal balance of the music.
The concept of this cable came as a result of many requests for a better sounding Firewire Cable for the Weiss DAC and the Apogee Digital Mini Firewire DAC. After making three great sounding USB DAC cable and the Data Firewire cable 800 Audio Grade No Power we set out to build the Audio Grade Firewire 800 to Firewire 400 with no power cable for these two highly regarded DACs. Our research for this product we found that the speed highly affected sound quality. The faster the cable tested in most cases the better the sound. Once we settled on the optimal speed of this Firewire cable, by selecting the proper gauge, metallurgy and shielding and deleting the power as to lower the noise floor we were ready for production.
With the Most Beautiful Sound Firewire 800 to 400 cable we have addressed theses problems by providing a super high-grade 20-gauge oxygen free copper metallurgy, and a low loss ground configuration thus increasing the speed of the data. Once the speed was addressed which significantly reduced digital signal errors we removed the power form the line as we mentioned previously an then we added an additional 3/8” copper braid shield to the entire length of the cable to lower the noise floor and remove any grunge thus making a more musical cable.
