Celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year, Kimber Kable has announced the launch of the Kimber Select USB cables.

Using technologies developed from the AXIOS brand USB cables and the previous Select flagship products, the new Kimber Select USB cables have taken both material and design cues from these prior versions to create a three-model range.

Russ Andrews say the Kimber Select USB-Copper provides improved data conductors featuring silver-plated copper with low-density PTFE insulation. Pure copper conductors are used for 5V DC line and all the connectors are braided together with Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibres to maintain consistent geometry and improve the durability. Following Kimber’s usual careful attention to detail for maximum performance, the data conductor shielding is completely bonded to the connector shell using pure silver foil for low RF impedance to ground.

Copper And Silver

The Kimber Select USB-Hybrid uses a mixture of copper and silver, with the power line featuring the same pure copper as the entry version of the cable, but with the all-important data lines manufactured from pure silver with a low-density PTFE insulation. All other terminations and connections are made to the same standards.

The top-of-the-range model is the Kimber Select USB-Silver, which, as the name suggests, uses pure silver conductors throughout its construction for the ultimate in performance. All cables are available in lengths from 0.5m to 6m and can be specified with various different connectors, such as A to B, A to C and C to C.

USB Cables

Peter Bevir, product specialist at Russ Andrews, says of the new cables, “The previous Kimber Select USB cables and AXIOS version proved to be hugely popular with computer audiophiles. Now, with the creation of this wholly new range incorporating technologies and developments from both ranges, the performance has been upped significantly and these are simply the best USB cables Kimber has ever made. We look forward to the reactions of our customers with the major improvements in the sound they will hear.”

Prices start at £562.50 for a 0.5m Kimber Select KS-USB Cu.
