Egad, that is ridiculous on the other end of the spectrum. Still, dirt cheap, so may be an option.

 

 

Hey beefy, happy Australia day mate ;)

 

Heya Dingo! Australia, f'yeah! If you don't love it, leave! Oh wait......

P.S. Monoprice was the first place I looked.  I can't find anything under 1.5 feet.  When I've found the shorter ones, they're expensive and no volume discount.

 

1.5 feet is the perfect length for me, i use these from my isolators to DAC's.  The larger 24 gauge power wiring is what initially caught my interest, they also include a ferrite and gold plated connectors for a couple of $$'s, what more could you want :normal_smile :

That one looks pretty good.  However, I have some questions:

 

1. What is meant by "28/24AWG?"

2. Would you guys prefer white or black?

3. I've also found some black ones that just say they're 28AWG, but they're only 1 foot long.

 

Is the ferrite core important in this application since the DoodleBug performs complete isolation?

1) 28AWG wiring for the two data lines, and heavier 24AWG wiring for the two power lines.  Same format as the Belken cable i also use, e.g.

 

Belkin USB2 Cable

 

2) Black or people will think its made by Apple :rolleyes:

 

3) Ferrite probably does nothing, but cant do any harm IMO.
