HDMI Cables lack grip in I2S ports

I didn’t find this topic when I searched here:

I’m using a Purist Audio Design HDMI with my DirectStream DAC and I find that it doesn’t grip well in the ports. This is likewise true of other HDMI cables that I’ve tried. Upon searching the interweb, it looks like this is a universal issue for HDMI users. Posters suggest using blue tack or a variety of other tweaks.

Thanks in advance,

Support the cable with something like:


Thanks All. I think I’ll try blue tack :slightly_smiling_face:
