Recommended length of USB cable


I was looking for a USB cable to connect to the Perfectwave DAC MkII and as regard to length, the website for Transparent Cable said to ask the manufacturer of the DAC what they recommend as regard to length. So which would be better a cable that is .5m or 1.5 m? I would be running the cable from a Sonore Orbiter to the DAC.


Use the shortest length that will allow comfortable connection between the orbiter and the PWD. Longer lengths are increasingly prone to jitter.


I had wondered the same thing…So I asked Gordon Rankin of Wavelength, Gordon is pretty much the guru of USB… Shorter is better…
