Most computers are just not optimized for high resolution audio streaming.
The USB standard allows for line level voltage to swing about 5%. This sloppiness can cause problems with sensitive electrical devices like your USB DAC. The technical outcome of poor line level power regulation is ripple voltage, which is basically electrical noise, and this could impact the way your DAC behaves. The USB Disruptor power supply has .1% line regulation. That is 50 times more precise than a typical computer!
Adding to the problem are USB cables themselves.
They could leak computer noise to your USB DAC via things like the metal mounting hardware of the USB cable. This may allow more electrical interference to work its way into the USB DAC. Even the physical proximity of the USB cable power wire to the digital signal lines, within the cable itself, could impact performance, hence the availability of audiophile USB cables that separate the power wire.
The unique USB Disruptor circuit works as a system to optimize USB DACs. The circuit accomplishes three goals:
- A virtually noise free external power source replaces loosely regulated computer power.
- The USB cable mounting hardware is made non-conductive to block noise from the DAC.
- The power line is separated from the data lines, like in expensive audiophile USB cables.
“The USB Disruptor is now a permanent contributor to the pleasure I derive
in listening to great recorded music. Highly recommended.”
“In all honesty I was not prepared for the level of improvement the unassuming
USB Disruptor would provide.”
San Francisco Audiophile Society:
“The USB Disruptor is one of those products that once its effect is heard,
it’s hard to imagine not having in the system. Its effect was very positive,
and for a measly $150, a no-brainer, since (to me) it’s easily worth five times the price!”
