Cabling up a DAC: short digital cable, or short analog?
My preamp is 6m away from my PC.
Do you think it better to have a 5m USB cable to the DAC, and 1m RCA leads to the amp, or vice versa?
I have a long USB at the moment, but am thinking that if I get a new DAC with XLR connectors, then it would be better to keep the digital cable short.
Or is this not worth any thought? (I have trouble acceptin that usb cables can make any difference to sound, but I can hear that some interconnects sound different from others).
