1  Ultimate Audio Playback / Cables (Community induced) / Re: Blaxius Squared ! on: January 28, 2019, 11:37:45 am
Hi Peter

Thanks for your reply.
Hmmm, I'm not sure I do understand completely  blink Happy.
One last time! For the configuration:
A:[W]B-R, B:[W]B-R
Does this mean current is flowing in W and also in R (because B & R are connected at the pins)? 
And, no current flowing in Y as Y is floating (not connected at the pins)?


Hi Tim,

No, not 4 screens. Just 3 as the other ^2 cables but with one always connected (fixed) and this is the W(hite). So this part is now not configurable.
Notice that B(lack) is always the connector end.

and another three screens (B, R & Y) that are not connected to W?

Oh they are, when you configure it to be so. Happy But I suppose that is what you meant anyway.

Best regards,

Hi Peter

I've changed my setup and now need a decent SPDIF cable to replace the generic RCA cable I'm currently using.
For my greater understanding, does the Blaxius^2 Digital actually have 4 screens:
One inner most screen for carrying the current (call it W) and another three screens (B, R & Y) that are not connected to W?
If the above is correct does it come pre configured with a 'consensus' configuration?



Something else ...

What you see here is the "definitive" version of the Blaxius^2 in Digital fashion. Let's say it is named Blaxius^2-Digital.
The difference with the Blaxius^2 for anlogue is the missing White wire. The annotation as you see it in the picture (the B end assumed the same) would be :

A:[W]B-R, B:[W]B-R

The [W] means that it is internally there all right and can not be avoided. It also means that - unlike the normal Blaxius^2 - it would be allowed to not connect any of the "connectable" wires. This is because the ground return path goes over the fixed (White) shield. It would look like :

A:[W], B:[W]

So, true, the "White"/innermost shield is there by standard for the digital version of the Blaxius^2. This appeared to be necessary for utmost critical applications, like Chord's Hugo M Scaler. Envision two BNC outputs for a dual wire setup to achieve max 768KHz output (each BNC cable being 384 capable), those outputs so close to each other that there's only 1mm space in between the two cables. And now they interfere with each other with the notice that for normal Blaxius^2 there is no configuration possible with 100% shield coverage for the signal wire in the cable. Thus also not when the inner shield (W) is the one in use.

The above mentioned is normally not a problem, but the M Scaler which seems suspect to RFI to begin with (not my own judgment but derived from hot discussions about it elsewhere), now pushes its higher frequency signal (50Mbit/s per cable) through two very close to each other connections, them causing interference with each other. And now the tiniest bit of "irregularity" may cause trouble.

The UPS Elves deliverd a Lush^2 this morning  Happy

Its way too fast for a fast first post really, but bare with me. After a few hours of run and using settup A: B-W-Y-R, B: B-W  ..........


Hi Nick

Just confirming: your setup is A: B-W-Y-R, B: B-W and not Peter's
A: B-W & Y-R, B: B-W?
If so, did you try his shield configuration but found your configuration is better in your system?

Anyone yet got any views/opinions if how the Lush^2 sounds is totally system dependant?
Or, for instance, for any configuration does connecting the outer shield ends to both A & B ends seems to always enhance/boost the bass or in another configuration always having the outer shield totally isolated seems to always enhance/boost the midrange?
If the latter was the case then this knowledge would be helpful as a good base to start fine tuning the cable for your own unique system.

Hi Peter

I have had the original Lush for several weeks now and like it very much but having read the 100% success that C.A members have had with the JSSG 360 tweak I decided to try it myself.  I had high hopes but unfortunately the 360 sheilding has resulted in a decrease in SQ - a marked 'digital' sound and bloated bass that I didn't get using my pre-tweaked Lush.

As you have obviously done a lot of work trialing the new Lush^2 do you think I should give it more time to burn in or did you find that with all the many permutations/setups available with Lush^2 that some did not suit your hifi setup and SQ was degraded as compared to using the Lush mk1?
Anyway, new Lush^2 has got to be a one of a kind in USB cable-land so congratulations!
