USB DAC or external

Recommended Posts


Before I buy a 5 mtr cable which should be the best way to go ?


1. 3.5 jack out of my Hi-Face (usb) DAC , twin RCA into Analogue Amp.




2. Optical out of Motherboard into my Cambridge Audio DAC - Analogue amp

Yes indeed, I have shorter cables of both I'll try and move my PC tower near to my Hi-Fi and test both.

I went from toslink to USB with DAC magic plus to use ASIO and honestly I can not tell much difference.
