  • 75 Ohm D-75 Cables
    The D-75 is a thoroughly engineered, precision 75 ohm coaxial digital cable designed for accurate handling of digital audio signals. The most common use for this cable is to connect the digital output of a CD or DVD transport to an outboard Digital to Analog converter or other digital processor. Several features of this cable make it superior for digital audio use.A solid, silver-coated center conductoris used to maintain the most uniform impedance. The use of a solid center conductor minimizes signal reflections, which are very important in digital data cables. This center conductor is encased in a very uniform closed cell foam Teflon dielectric, which has an extremely low dielectric constant of under 1.4. This provides the lowest dielectric absorption and loss, along with the most uniform attenuation vs frequency curve.Noise rejection is maximized by a 2 Layer shield. This dual shield provides 100% coverage for complete immunity to noise. The combination of a 100% aluminum Mylar shield and a heavy braid keeps ground resistance as low as possible. The braid is wound with carefully controlled tension in order to minimize a phenomenon called "VSWR spikes" (a common cause of signal reflections in high frequency cables).The result of these efforts is a cable that can provide excellent performance to beyond 2 Gigahertz. The D-75 is available in bulk, or carefully terminated with our coaxial RCA connector, for minimum reflection and optimum signal transfer. For maximum performance, 75 ohm BNC connectors are available as an option.In continuing with our policy of providing maximum value, the D-75 costs much less than its performance level would suggest.The D-75 is available in factory terminated lengths, and also in bulk (unterminated) form.
  • DH-Labs Silver Sonic D-750 Digital cable

    The new Silver Sonic D-750 is an ultra-low loss digital coaxial cable that has been engineered to deliver precision 75 ohm signal transmission. It replaces the popular D-75 and improves upon that cable’s well-regarded ability to accurately transmit today’s complex and sensitive digital signals. The most common use for this cable is to connect the digital output of a CD or DVD transport to an outboard Digital to Analog converter or other processor. Several features built into this product make it superior for digital audio use.

    A solid, silver-coated center conductor is used to maintain the most uniform impedance. A solid conductor minimizes signal reflections, a characteristic that is crucial to accurate digital data transmission. This center conductor is encased in DH Labs’ proprietary Air-PTFE Matrix dielectric, featuring an astonishingly low dielectric constant of 1.4. This material yields the lowest loss and most uniform attenuation versus frequency curve of any dielectric material.

    Noise rejection is maximized by a 2 Layer shield. This provides 100% coverage for complete noise immunity. The combination of an aluminum Mylar shield and a heavy braid keeps ground resistance as low as possible. The braid is precision wound with carefully controlled tension to minimize a phenomenon called “VSWR spikes”, more commonly referred to as jitter.

    The result of these efforts is a cable that delivers precise signal transmission with optimal balance and superior dynamics to well beyond 2 Gigahertz. The D-750 is available in bulk, or skillfully hand-terminated with our matching coaxial RCA-750 connector. For maximum performance, 75 ohm BNC connectors are also available.

    Continuing with the DH Labs tradition of providing maximum value, the D-750 costs much less than its superior performance level would suggest.

  • DH-Labs 110 Ohm D-110 Balanced...

    The Silver Sonic D-110 is a precision 110 Ohm AES/EBU type balanced digital interface cable. 110 Ohm digital cables are most often used to carry digital audio data from A/D converters to digital tape transports in recording studios. They are also used between CD transports and D/A converters in home hi-fi systems as an alternative to the more common S/PDIF 75 Ohm coaxial interface. 110 Ohm cables are terminated with XLR connectors. The Silver Sonic D-110 was designed to be a state-of-the-art, no compromise product. We feel it’s sonic performance equals or exceeds all other cables of this type, regardless of price. This level of performance is achieved by combining the finest materials available with the highest level of quality control. A critical goal for any digital interface cable is to maintain a uniform characteristic impedance. This is achieved in the D-110 through the use of a pure Teflon insulation whose thickness is held to a tolerance of .002 inch (.05 mm). The material is extruded under pressure in order to maintain maximum consistency, which minimizes a phenomenon called "VSWR spikes", a cause of jitter. Other features of the D-110 include silver coated conductors for improved conductivity, solid rod spacers to maintain a constant impedance, and 100% shield coverage to eliminate noise and interference. Our custom D.H. Labs XLR connectors feature direct-gold-plated, pure OFC copper contact pins, far exceeding industry standards. If your audio system has the ability to utilize the 110 Ohm digital interface, we recommend auditioning the D-110 before investing large sums of money in other cables. Several recording and mastering studios have already selected the D-110 as their cable of choice.

  • Toslink Optical Cables
    The DH Labs Deluxe Toslink is the only Toslink cable available that competes favorably with the finest coaxial digital cables. Designed for use with DVD players, CD players, D/A converters, surround processors/receivers and even satellite receivers, the Deluxe Toslink incorporates many performance-enhancing features. By combining a very high-speed transmission optical fiber capable of handling over 150 Mbps with a Precision Focus Cladding, special flexible PVC protective jacket and a state-of-the-art connector, ultimate performance is guaranteed. A 24K gold-plated Exact Fit Center Ferrule keeps the optical fiber perfectly centered within the connector housing, and the convex, precision polished tip assures maximum data transfer to the receiving diode. All of this adds up to an optical cable that can even handle demanding 24 bit / 96 Khz digital signals with ease.Available in 1, 2 and 3 meter lengths.
  • USB cables
    The new DH Labs USB cable continues our tradition of offering state-of-the-art digital audio cables at affordable prices. As with our other digital cables, our new USB cable combines top quality materials with precision manufacturing and solid engineering.Although the USB interface is very different from the S/PDIF and AES/EBU interfaces, the requirements for a good USB cable are similar to those for conventional digital cables.We start with silver-coated OFHC copper conductors, and we insulate them in a low-density gas-injected dielectric. The combination of these two materials provides a more uniform attenuation vs frequency curve, which helps to preserve waveform shapes at the Megahertz frequencies where digital cables operate.At these frequencies, it is very important to maintain the very tight control over the insulation thickness, and we also cable (twist) the conductors on a machine that runs slowly and with uniform (constant) tension. These techniques combine to maintain a highly uniform characteristic impedance, which minimize signal reflections (and thus cable induced jitter). At Megahertz (and Gigahertz) frequencies, cables behave as wave guides. Dimensional discontinuities - such as inconsistencies in insulation thickness or non-uniform spacing between the conductors - are a major reason for poor digital cable performance.Finally, we use 100% shield coverage (the shield is also wrapped at constant tension, to avoid "VSWR spikes") and top quality connectors.The DH Labs USB cable is available in lengths from 0.5 meters to 5.0 meters.Experience all that USB audio has to offer with DH Labs!
