AudioQuest USB A Connector

Firstly, I don't currently own any AudioQuest products. So, my interest and study of them are simply because my friend's workplace/company was appointed as their distributor for Japan.

Please describe with more details your experience of how its ill fitting, their connector design may well be improved with your feedback :)

So why can't Audioquest use a proper fitting USB-A connector on its USB cables?

 

Incidentally, how're you enjoying your Marantz HD-AMP1 ? I'm gonna audition one when it's released in New Zealand, noting you're in a position to compare it with their 8005 suffixed combo of integrated amp and player/dac

Maybe I'm being a little hard on Audioquest as there are a lot of USB cables with USB-A connectors that wiggle a lot when connected -- but there are some with a lot less wiggle -- perhaps it has to do with the thickness of the inner plastic tab?

I really like the HD-AMP1. It produces a very clean yet very Marantz sound -- it's a full but very clean mid-bass and perhaps a bit airy. I have it connected to Q Acoustic 3020 speakers (small bookshelf/desktop speakers), which do not put very much demand on the amp. And, I primarily listen to this near field. On the other hand, the SA8005/PM8005 combo are connected to Tannoy tower speakers and I listen to them from 10-15 feet away. The latter has, of course, more bass presence, and probably because of this, just a little less clarity but no less enjoyable.

Well' date=' what is [b']Hi-Fi culture[/b] nowadays ?

 

Are enthusiasts more communicative with one another because of the web's social networks, while also often impossible too to hear what the other's hearing ?

 

Are there many readers of this who still regularly exchange visits with friends that are practising audiophiles ? And specialist dealers, they're disappearing (because their services are somewhat undercut by consumers hunting for better online pricing) ?

 

Pardon, I've been busy, unable to (until now) simplify my thoughts succinctly.

 

Did you buy cable from a brick and mortar dealer ?

 

Jest, online shopping USB-A might be akin to mail-order grooms... Thus, what of the female...

 

Briefly, about HD-AMP1, its Japanese engineer, Ryuichi Sawada (and British reviewer, Andrew Everard too) enjoyed driving Bowers & Wilkins 803 D3s with it :

Tannoy says XT6F Recommended Amplifier Power (Watts RMS) 25 - 150

Have/do you want to try XT6Fs (perhaps, easy-listening-favourites first) with HD-AMP1 ?
