Below is a letter one of our dealers received on how much he liked this cable.
I just received the Analysis Plus Purple Plus USB yesterday, and I have to tell you, it’s perfect. I’ve tried the three big brands and generics. I knew this one was better immediately when I plugged it in. I spend about 8-10 hrs. per day composing music through a computer-based system and this is the first time that I can tell that the cable makes things clearer, reveals more, and makes recorded instruments sound more natural, rather than just changing the sound in some way as the others did. I really appreciate the recommendation, and I hope you recommend this cable to others as well.
Unlike other data cables (Ethernet, HDMI etc.), each end of a USB cable uses a different connector; an A-type or a B-type. This kind of design was chosen to prevent electrical overloads and damaged equipment, as only the A-type socket provides power.
The USB 2.0 specification was released in April 2000 and was ratified by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) at the end of 2001. Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Lucent Technologies (now Alcatel-Lucent), NEC and Philips jointly led the initiative to develop a higher data transfer rate, with the resulting specification achieving 480 Mbit/s, a 40-times increase over the original USB 1.1 specification.
The Analysis Plus Univeral Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 cable is rated at 480 MHz from the (USB-IF). Analysis Plus Purple Plus USB is double shielded cable with a large signal wire of 28 awg and power of 24 awg to avoid voltage drop. The conductors are oxygen free copper and also twisted to reduce Electromagnetic interference. The connector pin is gold plated. A great value in a flexible high quality cable.
