Thanks. I was looking for a USB A to USB Micro B 3.0. I have a AQ Carbon in that variant for HDD/SSD connection. Good luck with your sale.

super tempted to pick this up.

Using one of those Pangea Premier USB cables from audio advisor… works fine. Trying to justify/envision the difference that this might provide in my modest system.

Hmmm…

What’s your system?

I’ve heard differences from big system to little system with AQ Red and Regen…

I would be willing to give you a trial if you’re interested. Try it, if you don’t fall in love with it, send it back to me for refund (minus shipping).

Who are you, PS Audio? :slight_smile:

OK, I have two…

Both run Roon off a mac mini, with HQPlayer software.

  1. Living room:
    Roon > Mac Mini > USB into Parasound HINT6 integrated > Magnepan .7i
    (here, I’m using the HINT6’s onboard DAC)

  2. Office/Den:
    Roon > Mac Mini > USB into Matrix X-SPDIF 2 > Topping D70 (AES) or TEAC UD-501 (optical) > Audiolab 8000A > Harbeth P3ESR 40th Anniversary
    (can’t decide which DAC sounds better, or if I can really tell the difference)

Both systems sound great to my ears, but not sure they’re revealing enough for a USB cable to make a difference. But at <$100, what the heck, right?

FWIW when I used the Sonore UltraDigital which is similar to the Matrix, the UsB cable still mattered quite a bit.

ok, what the hey… I’ll take it.

sending PM now.
