We designed our latest YFS USB V2 to stand up to the competition. We feel it can hold its own quite well. We wanted a little more from our USB cable so we went ahead and made some improvements to our USB V2 design. We call it the YFS USB V3. We know it's not the most creative naming scheme so please forgive us.

We put our V2 design up against the Silnote Audio Poseidon silver conductor audiophile USB cable. In our listening tests the V2 was close but it didn't pack quite enough punch to hang with the Poseidon. The difference was slight but it was there. Alternatively, we feel the V3 updated design does pack enough performance to hang with the Poseidon. How do we know? We put them head to head and the V3 was still standing proud when we were done.

Most readers will want to know the main differences between the V2 and the V3 designs. We have spent considerable time with both and we can confidently say the V3 is just a little more refined than the V2. This rings true mainly in the detail and sound stage departments. We noticed a more open sound stage and more detail especially in the high end of the frequency response. Obviously, your mileage may vary but we're confident you'll notice a difference. Our V3 cable's performance and quality craftsmanship is guaranteed. Something tells us you'll be pretty excited when you see how much the competition is charging for the same performance point in their USB cable lines. ($450 to over $1000 for 1.0 meter)

If you're interested in the SCIENCE that goes into our USB cable designs, read our cable design FAQ here. We're pretty sure you'll get the basic idea behind what we're taking into account during our USB cable design process. If you've got any specific questions, just drop us an e-mail. Our contact info is located here. We'd be glad to help!

We're not firm believers in spending thousands of dollars on a single interconnect. It's just not feasible especially in today's economy. Do yourself a favor and give our USB V3 cable a try. If you're looking to get the most bang for your buck, you'll be glad you did. We guarantee it!

THANKS for reading!
