Mac mini thunderbolt vs usb

I started using roon with my mac mini m1. Can better results be obtained with Thunderbolt output than usb?
I am using m1 and fanless i7 rock in the system.

Thunderbolt is a different connector to USB C although they use the same physical port, you can’t use a thunderbolt device on a USB C port and vice versa

If the Matrix doesn’t have a thunderbolt port, then it’s not going to work.

my usb cable is wireworld platinium


Sorry, not following, it’s a USB cable, so won’t work in a Thunderbolt port.

They’re different protocols, one doesn’t work in the other.
