Zavfino USB cable came recommended by someone who helped me with my other cables.
Straightwire USBF also was recommended by other person who helped w/ my system.
BOTH WENT THRU' ~100 hrs of Burn-In
SO this is kinda comparison Between 2.
In absolute even if I am not comparing, I did not like the sound of Zavfino.
Highs were not very defined....distorted/bright comes to mind.
Sound stage was not very good....could not place the instruments apart (compared to SW)
(I play busy music to check sound-stage & separation)
BASS was on par with Straightwire.
Didn't think USB makes such a big difference.
For this review I had to use a custom USB DAC (SS), because my MHDT Orchid USB connection was damaged (something stupid I did)
My system...Custom PC - MHDT Orchid DAC(telefunken CCA) - KEF 107/2 w/cube (Bi amped by Melody I2A3 & Luxman R117)
when I replaced my old AQ evergreen usb cable with the zavfino cable my first impression was WTF there was a lot more bass but sounded a bit muddied. with an overall thickness to the music. I was nervous at first but gave it time to break in. Now after about 50 hours of play the cable is breaking in real nice. The bass has become clear and crisp but still maintained it’s thickness just no longer muddied. The music became alive again. Each song sounds thicker richer as if it gained depth and dimension. Like comparing 2D vs 3D gaming lol. As for the build of the cable it’s just top notch. Looks great and built like a tank. I like this brand so much I purchased the Arcadia occ interconnects. Eventually I will replace all the cables on my B system with zavfino with the exception of the bass cable since they don’t make one. I can’t wait for my next cable!
really enjoying the Majestic USB Cable. It has brought out the best of my system. From top to bottom it has improved. Music has more of the three dimensional soundstage, wider and deeper. You can follow the notes from the musicians if they walk from side to side, front to back on a stage. Another thing that we like is that even if your in the next room, music sounds so good still. Kudos to Zavfino Team!
Immediately after I put the Majestic USB cable in my system, I could tell it would be an excellent addition. Like all the other Zavfino cables, the USB portrayed the music in all the ways that matter to me. Tonally accurate, great separation, timing, bass, midrange, and treble were all there the way you would expect. Nothing stands out, but that is the beauty of this cable. It let's you focus on the music. One of the best USB cables I've heard for the money.
USB cables between computers and DACs are critical. The match is more like romance than science. I have two DACs that sound virtually identical (and very good) when using particular cables. If I switch the cables they sound vastly different. Recently, I purchased the Zavfino cable (there is only one) I connectd it between my laptop computer and my favorite DAC. I was delighted with the improvement. "Transparency," "details," and "depth" (the closest terms I can think of) were immediately improved and the cable was, of course, not "broken in" (which is a real, if hard to explain, phenomenon). When used with other DACs in my collecton, it has improved perormance. Due to some units having different connections, I haven't tried it with all of them. When I tried to order another Zavfino USB cable, I discovered they were sold out. I understand why! When they are available again, I will get another one. I have many different USB cables; I experiment a lot. One widely advertised brand is dreadful and makes the sound downright screechy in every DAC I've tried it on. The Zavfino is the best I've ever heard. Highly recommended.
