Unlike may cable manufacturers, Analysis Plus has huge experience in digital signals, working with customers including Airbus, Boeing and NASA. Digital cables have their own, unique requirements, vastly different to the needs of analogue cables. That means that, when it comes to digital audio cables, Analysis Plus are uniquely placed to apply their engineering and scientific experience to deliver the very best performance.
Please do not be misled by the price. A solid scientific basis to the design ensures that the cable outperforms competitors at even ten times the price, without needing to employ any gimmicks in terms of materials or construction—gimmicks that often reduce the overall measured performance rather than enhance it.
The Digital Oval is a sizeable step up from the already stellar performance of the Black Digital cable. It is optimised specifically for the range of audio data rates from 16/44 up to 32/192, including all DSD rates. Proper impedance and termination are necessary to prevent reflections on the cable. The unique Analysis Plus hollow oval configuration coupled with true 75 ohm connectors provides such a well-structured signal path also maximizing bandwidth. A separate shield, attached with a 360-degree contact keeps unwanted EMI/RFI signals from corrupting the desired signal.
