I plan on buying the HRT streamer II to play my FLAC collection over my stereo (Yamaha amp with B&W 500s).
My computer will be about ten feet from my amp. Is it better to have a long USB cable and a short RCA? Visa versa? Does it even matter?
Also, which lowish cost cables would you recommend for that setup? I've read some debate over the value of nice USB cables which doesn't seem to be resolved.
Finally, is there such thing as a asynchronous USB cable?
