Entreq Atlantis Infinity USB Cable
The Atlantis Infinity is the flagship USB cable and is priced at £2400 for a 1.1 metre length.
The latest version of the Atlantis includes a 0.55 metre ground cable which is physically integrated into the cable. Entreq argue doing this improves the performance as we lose the 3.5mm plug/socket connection and from listening to it I would agree entirely.
This USB cable is unique in the sense that Entreq themselves manufacture the actual USB connectors (including the pure silver contacts and housing) for this particular cable, being in control of how they are made and what they are manufactured from makes a massive difference to the sound quality.
An Olympus Ten Ground Box is the starting point we would recommend to ground a USB cable at this level. An Olympus Minimus or an outlet of a Posedion certainly wouldn’t be overkill.
How does it work? A conventional USB cable will contain a shield, any noise or interference travels up and down this shield inside the cable. the delicate musical signal is carried along the conductors, the conductors that run next to the shield. In comparison the Entreq cable is completely unshielded, but the noise/interference that is is drained away to the ground box. Due the nature of computers/laptops they are inherently noisy using very inexpensive power supplies to keep costs down, but they inject noise right back where it’s not wanted.
If you make a comparison between a basic USB cable or even an expensive branded one, the differences are not subtle. The Entreq genuinely offers a great deal of performance for the money. More than you would expect given the price point. I would quite happily demo this against anything costing more money.
