Looking for and "audiophile" USB cable - Page 6  

post #76 of 79

 Get one of the audioequest cables. It may not make a massive difference, but it's durable, well shielded and you can have confidence in it. I wouldn't spend 300 dollars on a USB cable. that's insane. You can buy almost 30 CDs for that price :) Or a better DAC/AMP, or a pair of DT990s, or HD600s, and the list goes on.

"What does this even mean? If you know how a digital cable works, there is no need to use your ears. As it will either work, or you'll get artifacts in your music. You certainly won't get tight bass and light, airy highs."

 

 

Are you serious? Your ears are the ultimate judge. Maybe you use textbooks for headphones?

Yeah, and your ears are easily fooled by your mind. I stick by what I said. If a digital cable works, it works. When it doesn't work you get drop outs and things like that, that are definitely noticeable. You will never get tighter bass or improved soundstage from a cable that costs $100-$10,000. That cable will work the same as a $10 one. Actually it may be worse. If it isn't USB approved, it isn't worth buying.
