Apollo Digital

The TARA Labs Apollo digital audio cable is an excellent choice of digital cable for a wide range of components. Why do digital cables sound different or possible better? The most significant reason for the different sound in digital recording and playback systems is the phenomenon of "errors". The most widely known error is called "jitter".

Jitter can be thought of as a timing error or a distortion of the digital bit-stream within the digital send and receive components and the digital interconnect cable. TARA Labs Apollo digital cable is exceptional in dealing with these timing errors as they are greatly reduced by our use of superior quality cable, along with exceptional shielding to reject interference within the cable. Apollo Digital is open and accurate with excellent base punch and control. TARA Labs Apollo digital audio cables are hand-crafted cables made in Oregon, USA.

“The feeling of calm in general has been there for me in the system, since the recent upgrades and Tara's [Apollo series] been a real keyword. There is no one who came to hear me including myself, who would not mix that word and feeling as he sat listening to the music coming from the system…

There is a special airiness around the sound and in the background behind the music, which appears whenever there is more than one similar cable in the chain. The ability of the power (music) to move freely through the same connectors and conductors, makes a greater contribution to hearing and feels than any single cable replacement, expensive or considered to be, to my ears. This homogeneous continuum is, in my opinion, the main goal that a high quality audio system should expect…

In almost every recording and source, the ability of these wires can be heard to connect the music in a special way and stream the information without any distortion or power. There is something very adorable about their presentation in the small room that brings peace to anyone sitting in a spot.”
