I read positive comments on Facebook groups about liquid music and saw video reviews on YouTube that spoke well of the USB Invictus. Since I was intent on improving the quality of my USB cable, which was already of good quality anyway (an emblazoned American brand), and reassured by the fact that if I was not satisfied I could return the cable, I decided to try Ricable.
and aesthetics of the product?
The construction of the cable is top-notch, the impression of solidity and choice of materials are remarkable, such that it puts my previous USB cable to shame. The color is perhaps my least favorite thing about it, perhaps a less garish color would have appealed to me more, but still, that's okay, it stands out well after all.
At first I started making direct comparisons by alternating the Invictus cable with my previous one and perceived obvious differences. Then I kept theInvictus always connected for a couple of weeks and then returned to a comparison by alternating the two cables again. Until I made a final decision in favor of theInvictus.
At first having to compare theInvictus with a cable I had owned for seven years, and to whose sound I had become accustomed, I found differences that displaced me. My previous one gave me (and still gives me) more bass and more midrange, the highs a bit more scratchy. Everything more in the middle and more forward in the soundstage, though. The Ricable Invictus on the other hand sets the soundstage back a bit, however, it opens it up sharply, the bass is more controlled and less annoying, voices especially take on a very natural tone, the treble is softer. With theInvictus you get to turn up the volume a little more. Basically after three weeks I find myself with a more natural sound, a slightly more backward scene than what I was used to but more open, listening fatigue has decreased. I decided to keep the Ricable Invictus !
It took me almost a month to decide to keep it, partly because I was not coming from a "printer's" USB cable, however, I finally decided. To those who are interested in improving their liquid music listening, I recommend trying the Ricable Invictus USB, if you were to come from a standard USB cable you will be electrocuted by the difference in positive, if on the other hand like me you already have a good USB cable you will have to make the appropriate evaluations, comforted however by the fact that if not satisfied you can return it.
