this thread is for what USB cable you use.

 

 

Okay that is absolutely fine by me. I will not post any more comments in this thread. I don't wish to offend.

I remember when high end SPDIF digital cables were meant with the same skepticism.  Don't knock it until you try it, it makes a difference.

Perhaps I'm just a weirdo, but I listen with my ears, not with test equipment, and my ears tell me that I get better results with the WireWorld cable, which physically separates the power and signal leads, than I do with the cheap Belkin cable from Staples.  As I'm sure you're aware, USB power coming from a computer is notoriously dirty, and if it's all the same to you I'd prefer not to have those ripples playing around with the time-alignment of my digital bitstream.

 

Or do you also believe that all jitter is inaudible?
