Exciting things are happening in the world of music streaming. After too many years of only MP3 quality music files, audiophiles will soon be getting CD-quality files from Spotify and (most probably) Apple Music as well.
Even today, many audiophiles still prefer the sound quality of R2R DACs compared with Delta-Sigma types. They claim that R2R DACs sound smoother and more like analogue. Audio-GD from China makes some R2R DACs which have received quite good reviews. All Audio-GD products are designed and developed under the guidance of He Qinghua, the 'First Prize Winner' of the National Semiconductor (USA) Audio Design Contest.
For many years, the gold standard for USB cables was the WireWorld Platinum Starlight 7. Numerous audiophiles praised it and bought it. Now, there is a cable that can surpass it in sonic performance and it is the Shunyata Alpha USB cable. It used to be the second-best USB cable in Shunyata's range with the Sigma being the top cable. In December last year, Shunyata launched the Omega USB cable which is now its flagship model.
