Max recommended length for RCA cable? (from DAC -> AMP)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, just wondering what the maximum recommended length is for an RCA cable leaving a DAC and going to a headphone amp. I'll be using a Xonar Essence STX as the DAC and outputting to the Little Dot MKIV, which will be my first tube amp ever :) The computer is in a corner and I'd like to bring it closer to my receiver for convenience. But the thought of a 10-15ft RCA cable coming off a line-out makes me nervous about losing sound quality.

Shorter is always better.

If you need 10-15 feet, then so be it.
