A USB cable for a DAC (Graham Slee Bitzie)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I've recently bought my first USB DAC, a Graham Slee Bitzie, which I had selected some time ago by reading reviews and opinions, and now I'd like to get an USB cable for it, something better than my printer cable. Yes, I'm curious to see if that really affects the sound, as some people (and all the cable manufacturers) say; also the cable I've got is too long, and, well, still needed by my printer.

Graham Slee Lautus USB cable could have been the most obvious choice, but, at £96.00, it seemed to me too expensive, so I'd like to ask your advice about alternatives, like WireWorld Ultraviolet and Starlight, or AudioQuest products; in particular, I'm interested in opinions by who have had the opportunity to listen to the same DAC connected to different USB cables, and by other Bitzie (with or without Lautus cable) owners.

I'm wondering if "Cables, Power, Tweaks, Speakers, Accessories" would have been a better place to start this thread.

If you are unsure whether the Lautus USB cable will make a difference that justifies its cost, make an account on the Graham Slee GSPAudio forum and you will have access to the European loan scheme, which is run by a forum member. You will be able to try the Lautus cable with your Bitzie for a "free" two week period. You only pay for the postage cost and it will give you time to make your own judgements without rushing you to make any purchase decisions.

Hi o0CosmoMemory0o, I've already read your opinion about the Lautus USB cable on gsp audio forum, but have you ever tried the Bitzie (or your Majestic) with USB cables by other manufacturers? Anyway, thank you for your tip, I didn't know there was a loan scheme for Lautus cables, too.
