Daniel, Customer So, this sound is entirely different. The only change was the USB cable, from my Lexar 512 SSD to my Amare Diamond Music Player (data leg) and to the Anker Battery (power leg). First off: The space and background is definitely quieter, but responsive. Not a flat, muffled background that sucks in sound, but a good feeling, responsive quiet, like it has the ability to flow and spring back with the music. Nice, so very nice. The strings, ahh the strings, I now have a full pluck, top to bottom strike and the deacy is natural. How did this happen? I have only heard this at a live event. And the stand up bass has a twang and an edge, with a bit of resin. Very Nice. The dynamics are much better and the overall tonal balance has the ability to move and react with the flow of the music. I suppose the best word is “reactive and free dynamics”. This is amazing. One data cable did this, the 30th Anniversary Purist Audio Dual conduit USB Cable, it really gets me excited when I listen, Dianna Krall really is preforming and the audience is reacting to her and the band....that is new. This is the very first time I felt Dianna Kralls piano and band have soul and freedom to give that live excitement ...here at home. Superb.
