The Formula 2 is a beautifully engineered and built USB 2.0 cable for enthusiasts with growing music collections on their computer hard drives looking for high performance sound.
More and more people have amassed large collections of music on their computer hard disks, and there are an increasing number of USB-input DACs to serve them. If properly setup and implemented computer-based systems are capable of smooth and detailed sound, especially with high resolution recordings. But as with any system component you need quality, well-engineered and built USB cables to get there.
Furutech has created a high performance entry level 2.0 USB cable for this purpose. They begin with silver-plated α (Alpha) OFC conductors and a special-grade high-density polyethylene insulation/dielectric. As illustrated below the Formula 2 features three-layer shielding and specially engineered 24k gold-plated USB 2.0 connectors. As with the more highly specified GT2 and GT3, the cable wrap includes damping and insulating materials keeping mechanical ringing from affecting the sound. A carefully engineered clamp improves grip and keeps both mechanical and electrical distortion at bay.
"With more and more music now in the digital domain, the USB cable is correspondingly important. And Furutech's speedily monikered Formula 2 is a fine example. Connected to our reference DAC, it helped our set-up develop greater insight and precision, at the same time allowing a wider sound-stage with an increased bass weight. This USB cable could make a difference to your digital performance; this is an essential upgrade option to audition." BEST USB CABLE - WHAT HI-FI SOUND & VISION AWARDS 2011
