The HDMI/RJ45 I2S Cable Xtreme Series has a strong Western Electric sound Characteristics. The sound is balanced, powerful and refined with quality bass. The midrange is with seductive vocals, instruments of all types dimensional and present. High frequencies are at once transparent, sweet and beautifully seductive. It is very musically where the air and space between performers are extraordinary, quiet and with focused soundstage.
I²S (Inter-IC Sound), is an electrical serial bus interface standard used for connecting digital audio devices together. It is used to communicate PCM audio data between integrated circuits in an electronic device. The I²S bus separates clock and serial data signals, resulting in simpler receivers than those required for asynchronous communications systems that need to recover the clock from the data stream, thus result in much better details and excellent sound quality. I2S is better than S/PDIF or AES/EBU (AES3) because it separates the clock and the data onto separate signals.
The I2S consists of many lines: Bit clock line “continuous serial clock (SCK)”, “bit clock (BCLK)”. Word clock line “word select (WS)”, “left-right clock (LRCLK)”, multiplexed data line “serial data (SD)”, but can be called SDATA, SDIN, SDOUT, DACDAT, ADCDAT, etc. Master clock (typically 256 x LRCLK)
There is NO STANDFRD defined for the I2S pins configurations. Therefore, in order to ensure that I2S cable to function properly, would need to get the I2S layouts from audio equipment manufactures.

I2S cable will work well, if I2S source to I2S playback device, provided they both adhere to the same signal configuration. So, it would be better you know the pin configuration of your CD/Transport/Streamer, as well as your DAC. If you match signal configuration correctly, the I2S Cable performs exceptionally well, well beyond expectations. This I2S Cable Xtreme Series should be the only one I2S cable built with Duelund tinned copper wires that you could find in current audiophile markets.
Xtreme series has a very comprehensive and almost perfect sound, with a very strong sound characteristic of Western Electric. The sound is very natural, details and smooth with quiet background, and most importantly very musical. We strongly believe that this cable can challenge any expensive and branded audiophile cables.
Note: Generally, HDMI I2S performs better than RJ45 I2S. If the i2S cable is not function properly in your system, it may due to wrong I2S pin layout. Customer could request for a full refund.
