ADL Formula 2 USB Type B Cable
The Formula 2 is a beautifully engineered and built USB 2.0 cable for enthusiasts with growing music collections on their computer hard drives or steaming 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.
The result is much as you will hear from our GT2 USB cable: Clear and open highs, elegant midrange textures, powerful but in-control bass, an enhanced sense of the sheer palpability of the music you’ll enjoy.
Alpha Design Labs (ADL) is extremely proud of its worldwide reputation for innovative engineering, extraordinary build quality and legendary sonic performance. Originally launched as an entry-level line for Furutech, ADL has now evolved into a genuine leader in cutting-edge technology with its current line of desktop and portable audio components, headphones, earphones and cables. Using Furutech’s Pure Transmission Technology as the foundation for products that are carefully engineered as well as innovative, ADL has achieved a level of performance that has been previously unavailable at this price point. The Pure Transmission process focuses on one objective—to deliver a pure, open and quick sound that is preserved throughout the entire signal chain from the source to the speakers or headphones. As a result, Pure Transmission allows ADL components possess a greater sense of dynamics, power and resolution. You’ll hear deeper into your favourite recordings than ever before. Adding more ADL components to the playback chain— including our full line of portable headphone amplifiers, DACs, headphones and cables—will increase the sonic advantages you’ll experience from Pure Transmission Technology.
