RE: 60’ between Mac and Dac

How are you connecting the two?  If USB, you can buy 'active' USB extension cables designed to minimize signal loss over long distances. Do a Google search and I'm sure you'll find a few, but you could do with trying one with the agreement that you can return it if it doesn't meet your needs.

But I've got to ask...how on earth have you ended up with a situation where your DAC and computer are sixty feet apart?!
