Compare the Reunion CAT8 to other popular cables:
There is a fundamental difference between the transfer of computer data and digital audio signals. Audio signals are breakable streams of data that are much more susceptible to loss and timing errors. These errors are called jitter, and they replace the audio signal with distortion and noise. A higher speed & higher quality cable will reduce those errors. The New Silver Sonic Cat 8 Ethernet Cable will deliver the highest transfer speeds for the more accurate sonic reproduction of streamed music and video. Category 8 boosts network speeds to an astonishing 40 Gigabits per second ! The cable features OFHCC conductors that are 10% silver coated ( surrounded by 2 proprietary shields ), along with a weighty metal connector & solid locking mechanism.
