Tchernov Cable REFERENCE


Our top-of-the-line Reference USB A-B IC is engineered with a desire to achieve the highest musical fidelity within the framework of our proprietary class-leading insulation and shielding techniques. It allows the full utilization of the USB Audio 2.0 capabilities including the transmission of a multichannel high resolution digital audio data flow. The enlarged 0.5 mm² conductors and their advanced multi-stranded arrangement ensure less mechanical stress and lower susceptibility to radio interference. The individual 3-layer CAFPE® conductor insulation significantly decreases distributed capacitance, relative permittivity and signal energy losses. The reinforced common shielding with copper foil and BRC braid dramatically reduces the electromagnetic radiation especially at high transmission rates as well as protecting from external electromagnetic field influence over the digital signal data flow. Individual shielding of the signal and power conductor pairs decreases cross-channel interference, eliminates transmission errors and provides noise free power for external USB devices. Exemplary shielding results in a wider frequency bandwidth and extended dynamic range. The new Reference USB A-B IC is jacketed with highly elastic thermoplastic polyurethane Elastollan® for unrivalled dielectric long-term stability, mechanical strength and efficient absorption of acoustic noise and vibrational loads. Solid metal cased Reference USB A-B connectors with fully gold plated beryllium copper contacts complete shielding and the meticulous product visualization. The Reference USB A-B IC sets the new standard for USB Audio 2.0 sound quality and precision craftsmanship.

Due to the cable construction complexity and excessive material consumption the initial burn-in period (time during which the best sonic performance is reached) is suggested as 100 hours of uninterrupted music playback at least. We highly recommend playing music of different genres.

Due to our policy of continuous product development, all specifications are subject to change without notice.

Available Terminated Lenghts:

  • 1 х 1.00 m
  • 1 х 1.65 m
  • 1 х 2.65 m
  • 1 х 5.00 m
