Regen/Wyred first or better cable first


Recommended Posts

Guys...I need some advice on making the first upgrade in a series of planned updates. Would I get the most bang for buck getting the Uptone Regen/Wyred Recovery or getting an audiophile level USB cable? Your opinions would be appreciated. I'm using the stock usb cable that came with my Ayre Codex DAC with an AQ Jitterbug attached. Happy with the sound, but I think there is room for improvement. My current setup is an Aurender N100H -->stock usb cable --> AQ Jitterbug -->DAC. Thx

All interconnect cables are unpredictable for user satisfaction... plan on trying several. A Regen with good quality PS is a more logical first step... cables will still matter but the Regen has a higher order effect on USB improvement. And if you bought the Regen later you would be doing the cable swap dance a second time, possibly discarding the cables you liked before Regen was inserted.

Regards,

Dave
