We achieved a landmark with the Luminist 30th Anniversary, but we wanted more detail, more dynamics, and more transparency. So we set our engineers to work, and they dialed it up to 11! We greatly improved the passive filtering on the power conductors by using a specially tuned, hand-wound toroid. We advanced the dielectric for the separate data and power lines. In addition, we added sonically superior USB connectors with beautifully gold-plated housings.
The sound of the Diamond Revision 30th Anniversary is breathtaking, with wonderful inner detail, amazing dynamics, and a beautiful transparency. The Diamond Revision 30th will truly bring out the music in your high resolution computer audio system!
Hi Fi + Review Nicholas Rigby:
"One of the great criticisms of USB (by the CD and the UPnP streaming communities) is that the sound lacks ‘body’ or ‘weight.’ These people have never heard what the Purist Audio Design 30th Anniversary USB cable can do! The overall sound with this cable is just the right side of ‘dark’ to be full of musical gravitas rather than ‘moody’, and is also powerful, weighty, and monumental when it needs to be. Even when moving from sweeping Sibelius to bouncy Brubeck, the overarching impression is one of detail coupled with solidity of instruments and players."
"Yet, for all this weight and solidity, the Purist cable wants for nothing in terms of soundstage retrieval and detail; and detail across the board, too. The high frequencies had none of that quasi-artificial ‘high-end shimmer’ (which is, in fact, often inaccurate note decay), but instead revealed the nature of the recording right down to the reverb tails on background instruments. Mids had the same accuracy, and bass lines were full and yet tight and taut when needed. In short, this is about as good as it gets! "
"Purist Audio Design’s 30th Anniversary is a year of great maturity and extremely good products, if the USB cable is anything to go by. This is a cable that does all the right things for computer music. Very highly recommended."
