I just moved to a new home, and my new listening room will not allow me to connect my Directstream DAC to my PC at my desk via a wire (easily). My use case is the Directstream wired to my PC (foobar) at my desk via USB. I liked this and it worked.
What are my options?
Situation: My amp/DAC setup is in a corner on the far side of the room. The wall between my desk and the amp/dac, is glass and sliding glass doors. I can not go around the other way due to a hallway. There is no access into the ceiling… no Ethernet cable or other cable passages. A real cabling nightmare. The cabling distance is approximately 30’ between devices.
I suppose I can purchase those little plastic conduit tubes, glue them to the lower floor/wall boundary, and run a long USB cable. I have run super long USB cables with success for photography situations… remote triggering and control… and have a long IO Gear USB extension cable already in hand.
