Right now I am using a 3ft RCA to RCA radioshack fusion cable. Is this short enough?
A cheap and easy test:
1. All you need is a stereo 1/4 " to RCA adapter.I had one lying around, they cost about 2$.The cheapos are o.K. when new, their downside is the lacking long term durability(corrosion).
2. Plug the adapter into a headphone jack of the Benchmark.
3. Connect the DAC and your amp.
In my case I'm hearing a clearly audible difference.
"Clearly" not in the sense of a day and night difference.
"Clearly" in the sense of turning very good into extraordinary.
I'll order the parts for a XLR to RCA interconnect today, I don't like the additional pot in the chain.
