"cheeTarh USB Type-B Terminator: CUT-1"
Terminated with two types of capacitors and resistance!
Can feel the shimmering in anteroposterior positions, by newly developped original shielding with both EMC material and metal use!
For DAC or network audio players not using USB-DAC play!
Rental service available at only 250 yen! (only in Japan)
A USB Terminator To Improve Even Anteroposterior Positions!
The reasons for being of USB terminator is same as LAN terminator; to block electromagnetic wave noises. Please see LAN terminator page about it. Since many months ago, quite a few customers who liked cheeTarh LAN Terminator requested me to provide a USB terminator, but I did not make and sell it, easily. There are some products out there by competitors, and I could not think of any unique enough product for cheeTarh Consulting brand. I could not progress beyond wondering if, In the begining, for vacant USB ports of network audio players and NAS, cheap USB memory stick might be good enough, or not. Recently, I was shocked by listening the reality of shimmering anteroposterior positions of good DSD5.6MHz tracks, which was recorded, and edited only by DSD formats, and which was not made by simply converting 24 bit studio masters to DSD2.8MHz for the use of SACD. My audio system sounded completely differently with the DSD from with PCM, including hi-res. High resolution of PCM is superior in the channel separation between right and left speakers, but is flat in terms of anteroposterior positions...When I was wondering about it, I found that this issue can be, at least partially, solved by termimating a type-B USB port for USB-DAC play. It is reasonable as type-B port is connected to the point by-passing the S/PDIF decorder that terminating it would greatly improve the sound of a DAC. Termination of signal lines on #2 and #3, and surpressing bus-power noises on #1 and #4, would make delicate transmissions possible, I thought. Having a clear objective, the project progressed farily quickly.
Original Capacitor Circuits And EMC Shielding!
The circuits consist of two types on capacitors and termination resistance, and the shielding is made with EMC material which was effective with LAN terminator, this time rolling twice. In addition, cheeTarh Consulting found that additional metal shielding upon it iis effective. This new shielding means inner electromagnetic noises are thoroughly absorbed by EMC material, and outer electromagnetic noises are effectively reflected by metal shielding, which would be introduced into other cheeTarh Consulting products. With these, cloud on chords dissappeared, and you can feel clearer backgrounds and wider accoustic fields. Moreover, expressions not only right and left positions, but also shimmering anteroposterior positions and depth such as of DSD can be heard, as noted above. As for the outlook design, not only the cheetah foot prints, but also logo of cheeTarh Consulting are placed on the both sides, nicely. Please use it to improve your audio system. Rental service is available, too.
