Yes , I know only one which goes even further , it ‘s a Polish Apricity usb cable , but it’ s much more expensive and unfortunately does not work with Pacific, I was told a kind of errors control issue.
So I am happy with Callisto, outstanding price/quality ratio.

I apologize - by no means it's meant to be secretive and audio.bill is correct regarding the price. It is 850chf or whatever the exchange rate is for US$.

Cheers;

Have had the Callisto in my headphone rig now for well over a month and without getting into hyperbole I find it head scratchingly, mind bogglingly good. For reference, usb cables that I have had in my system in it's current state are Chord Sarum super aray, followed by a Black Cat digit which bettered the Sarum in detail retrieval and smooth, open highs, very natural sounding and highly recommended.
The Callisto builds on all those attributes and creates a huge open and detailed soundfield with a light shone into the far corners. Great layering and spatial effects along with sound stretching out in all directions. Special mention is the wonderfully weighted low frequencies. No doubt there will be a usb cable out there that will better it but I wager you will have to spend quite a bit more to get there.
Funny really as I wasn't looking for a new usb but so glad on a whim I took that chance.
Goran has been pleasure to deal with and answered all my questions promptly.

Hi Goran ;)
I should be a new (happy) tester and owner of the Callisto cable in the next weeks. Will replace a Curious USB. Will be interesting, as I had exactly the same feelings than Christian Puunter with the Curious, so the FTA should be great !

I also own the curious cable.
Absolutely no compare. The FTA is so much better in every aspect ;)

Do you plug the Callisto directly to your Dac, or can you improve SQ even further with an Isolator in-between ?
I have a Jcat isolator, and a "short" Curious cable (20cm), so I have the choice...

- from my PC endpoint with Jcat PCIe USB card to :
- Directstream Jr Dac direct with Callisto
or
- Curious link usb (20cm) + Jcat Isolator + Callisto

I'll certainly do both, but if someone already tried...

I went directly into the DAC with the FTA but after you already have all those Gadgets, I would definitely try them ;)
