USB cable for audio MURAKUMO2-USB  (USB 2.0 compatible)

- MURAKUMO2-USB is a MURAKUMO grade USB cable from Brise Audio, which is designed to be used with TYPE-C connectors, which have been increasing in recent years, and is dedicated to the pursuit of sound quality, The sound quality that can only be achieved by applying the most luxurious high sound quality construction that cannot be adopted for any other cables other than the MURAKUMO grade cables.

・Connector can be selected from Type-C, Standard-A, Standard-B

・Developed specifically for audio applications, using Brise Audio's original wire materials.
 Special high-performance monocrystalline copper is used for the conductor, and a double shield is employed: an OFC braided shield around the cable perimeter and an aluminum foil/PET composite film shield.
 The core wire for data communication has an additional OFC braided shield to prevent not only external noise but also mutual interference between the power and data communication lines.
 Data lines are designed as 90Ω differential impedance, and transmission specifications conform to standard USB cables.

- Sound quality tuning using Brise Audio's proprietary high sound quality technology (multiple materials including proprietary special CNT material*1, BS sheet*2, etc.)
 MURAKUMO will add more high-cost, special materials, and the construction area will be all over.

・Type-C to C cable is USB-PD compliant and communicates between devices, automatically recognizing the upstream host side (Source) and downstream device side (Sink)



Brise Audio has developed original wire materials for USB cables in pursuit of sound quality as audio USB cables compatible with TYPE-C connectors, which have been increasing in recent years.
You can choose from Type-C, Standard-A, and Standard-B connectors.
The Type-C connector has been newly developed exclusively for MURAKUMO.

Wire materials are repeatedly tested and developed in various environments, including our test environment.
Special high-performance monocrystalline copper is used for the conductor.
Double shielding with OFC braided shield around the cable perimeter and aluminum foil/PET composite film shield.
And, the core wire for data communication is additionally shielded with an OFC braided shield to prevent not only external noise but also mutual interference between the power and data communication lines.

Furthermore, the sound quality was tuned using Brise Audio's proprietary high sound quality technology (multiple materials including proprietary special CNT material*1, BS sheet*2, etc.).
MURAKUMO will add more high-cost, special materials, and the construction area will be all over.
The MURAKUMO grade of home audio cables is designed for greater effectiveness when used with high-resolution systems, especially those in the high-end range.

Through repeated listening and experimentation, we found that USB cables, which transmit higher frequencies than conventional digital transmission (S/PDIF and AES) near DACs and other analog circuits, require very sensitive measures against the effects of sound quality on audio equipment, in addition to the requirements of conventional data transmission.
Brise Audio's USB cables are developed based on the know-how gained from these experiments.


※1
In order to take advantage of the excellent characteristics of CNTs, we have developed the optimum material through repeated joint testing and comparative listening tests conducted by three parties, including a national research institute and a cooperating material manufacturer.
Typical properties of CNTs include: 20 times the strength of steel, 10 times the thermal conductivity of copper, and half the density of aluminum. Superior shielding ability. Various other useful physical properties.
(The properties of CNTs vary depending on whether they are single-phase or multilayered.)

※2
BS sheet is a material that boosts the positive sound quality effects of other materials while having very little negative impact on sound quality.



【 Type-C to C cable specifications 】

The Type-C to C cable is compliant with the USB 2.0 Type-C Standard Cable specification, so the connection is not directional.
 Type-C to C cable is USB-PD compliant (up to 3A)
 CC pins are connected so that communication between devices is performed to automatically recognize the upstream host side (Source) and the downstream device side (Sink).
 
 When connecting dual-role devices that can be both the host and device side, such as when connecting a smartphone to an Android-based DAP,
 the host side may be randomly determined due to specifications.
 If the smartphone side does not become the host, try unplugging and plugging in the cable to re-recognize it.

Standard-A and Standard-B connectors are original connectors with metal shells. The Type-C connector is also originally developed to accept the original wire material.

Adopts Brise Audio's originally developed wire materials for USB
