I have a new NPC that I am integrating into my system and want to ask questions regarding the best choice of USB cables between the NPC and the PC. Ideally, I need a long cable to move my laptop PC to the position where I do my vinyl ripping and editing using Vinyl Studio.
I have available to me several USB cables ranging in length from 1 meter to about 10 meters (a 33ft active USB cable from Monoprice). All the cables appear to work minimally in that I can record from the NPC with any length cable. My question is will there be any degradation, noticeable or otherwise, from using the long 33ft USB cable with active equalization? My question is probably more technical in nature having to do with possible effects of jitter, data loss or corruption or other anomalies that the USB transmission protocol will allow to happen and destroy the quality of the audio signal.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
