Those were extra and added $15 for a total of $165 I do believe. It's a great dac and never had any of the power problems that some of the guys kept mentioning about the jds labs version.
Yeah I don't want to do all this reading about cable intricacy I don't understand and spend $100-plus on them and rant about how great it sounds and how it's night and day (which I believe is totally placebo 99% of the time), but I would like to know that at the very least, I have a nice looking and well-built cable and around $40 sounds perfect.
I might go with the ODAC (from Audio Poutine) to pair with my Little Dot MKIII and one of those sexy cables, and save up for the Lyr.
