Designed and handcrafted with multiple combinations of 5N OCC silver wire, carefully fine-tuned to achieve highest sound quality and minimize signal transmission loss.
* Please provide the I2S pinouts of your equipment and direction of cable. For HDMI AV, it will be Standard HDMI Pinout for general Audio video. *
** HDMI plug is relatively weak and fragile due to its 19-pins PCA, please be careful when plug-in. Audiolund I2S cable is thick and heavy too. So, may require cable support or wooden block below HDMI plug to support the weight. Highly recommended to use with cable support for best sound. **
HDMI Plug Orientations:
Please provide the orientation of HDMI plugs connected to equipment, so that the HDMI plug could be plugged in without twisting.
Audiolund HDMI I2S/IIS/AV Cable ~ True Silver Series
– Use 5N OCC silver cables made in Europe, carefully shielded one by one, twisted and then soldered
– Use 24awg 5N OCC silver wire in in all the various pins, DATA+/-, BCL+/-, LRCK+/-, MLCK+/-, SCL and SDA
– Built with audiophile grade solder, carefully fine-tuned and added pin connections for all grounding too
– Use various types and multiple layers of shielding materials for shielding to reduce noise and RFI/EMI interference
– With unique damping design, use various types of anti-vibration/damping materials to suppress vibration and isolation
– 1.0m standard length with other length options
The HDMI I2S Cable True Silver Series define the new class for pure silver with distinct silky beautiful sound. It is specially built with imported 5N OCC silver wires on all major key pinouts. True Silver Series I2S Cable has a sweet, delicate, powerful, fast dynamics sound and it also has a stronger tone, warmer with richer full body texture sound. The True Silver Series set a new standard for another category of the pure silver modern sound.
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.
A-Definition vs B-Definition:
HDMI I2S A Definition: Pink Faun, Wyred4Sound, Audiobyte, Wadia, Rockna, SMSL, LKS, Gustard, JAVS, Singxer
HDMI I2S B Definition: Sonore, PS Audio, Mola Mola, M2 Tech, Aune, Holo Audio, Empirical Audio, K&K Audio, Channel Islands Audio, Musica Pristina, Stahl~Tek, Matrix, DiDiT, HiFime, X-Sabre, Soundaware, Audio-gd, Denafrips, Jay’s Audio
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 True Silver Series performs exceptionally well, well beyond expectations. This I2S Cable True Silver Series should be the only one built with 5N OCC Silver cables, so far that you could find in current audiophile markets.
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.
HDMI AV (HDMI 2.0):
Noted that if you want to use this HDMI cable for your Standard AV application, it will be built as per Standard HDMI Pinout for general Audio video, Noted that this HDMI AV support HDMI 2.0/1.4/1.3 only.

Excellent cable, but very thick and stiff. Beware, especially with 0.5m. The connectors need the be oriented favorably otherwise it won’t work.
The sound is smooth and organic, with excellent extension on both ends. It extracts more info from the recording than my former cable, the reverbs are rendered with more clarity for instance.
You don’t feel like anything is missing, i see no shortcomings to the sound. I know Danny is working on a more flexible version. So with that issue fixed, i highly recommend the cable.

Google translate: ” I can’t wait to listen to the cables tonight. It ’s really value for money, which is more obvious than the original line improvement. It’ s directly installed. You don’t need to compare the old cables to hear the difference. The I2S line is also richer than the same Coaxial cable of the same brand, the sound field is large, and the nice to hear.

Purchased this beautiful cable to connect an Audio-GD DI20HE DDC to a Gustard R26 DAC. Danny provided a custom pinouts and direction of the cable since Audio-gd uses type B standard and Gustard type A. The cable is thick, heavy and quite stiff and Danny adviced me to me use some form of support under the termination (wooden blocks in my case). You need to be patient because the cable requires quite a break in time to perform at its best, but then you are rewarded with a natural tone, excellent microdynamic, huge soundstage with tiny ambience sounds retrieval. Highly recommended to make the most from your H2S connection.

Grateful that Danny allows home demo of his cables which is quite rare (unfortunately) in the local audio scene. Tried the xtreme and true silver series I2S cables. Much prefer the latter out of the 2 and no prizes for guessing, I made the purchase.
Cable is of excellent build quality albeit a little thick and not as flexible as I would like. But when it comes to audio, I could immediately hear an audible difference. Everything sounds much clearer, akin to lifting of the veils. More details and nuances of the music could be heard, soundstage is further enlarged with greater depths.
This deserves more attention among the audiophiles and look forward to more reviews from others as well!
