USB Cable Rec's for Sonore MicroRendu

Recommended Posts

Hey guys/gals, just picked up a MRendu and need a cable to go with it, something 1 meter or less should be fine as it will most likely be sitting close to the DAC. It came with a small direct hard USB plug but i don't have the room to plug it directly into my DAC. Definitely looking to spend less then $100.

 

Thanks

Thanks for the rec's so far...that Curious Cable looks really interesting, just a bit too rich for my blood! Although i see the short one they make for the Regen is $120, that's not too bad i guess. I'm thinking the WireWorld Starlight 7 (.3M for $85) might be the one.

 

Anyone else?

I think the USB cables sold by Schiit are great budget cables.

 

$20 plus shipping.

 

They are made by Straight Wire (I think).

 

Schiit Pyst Cables

 

 

Wow, those Shiit cables are cheap! I find myself always caught in the middle between wanting to spend more for a 'great cable' and being frugal, it's a tough place to be.

The WireWorld Starlight 7's blew me away. I got them last week. The improvement was immediate and self-evident. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Belken Gold USB. Amazon $8

 

I moved from Belkin Gold to WireWorld Starlight 7.

 

I thought Belkin was perfectly fine, and I bought the WireWorld off Amazon certain that I would hear no difference and that I'd be returning them.

 

I was wrong.

 

For that $72 difference, I found it to be no contest.

It may be DAC dependent then. The OP should order both and then return one. I love Amazon for the hassle free returns even if you have pay just a bit of shipping.

What length did you buy? What gear are you using it with?

Mac Mini-->WireWorld Starlight 7 (.5 meter)-->Intona-->WireWorld Starlight 7 (1 meter)-->Exogal Comet

 

BTW, insofar as tweaks go, I've found the Intona to make an almost imperceptible difference in my system.

 

The WireWorld Starlight 7's effect, by contrast, as about a subtle as a thunderclap.

cool thanks. I'll be using it between the MicroRendu and a Peachtree Audio Nova integrated.

Give it a shot. You can always send it back if you don't hear anything.

 

Either way, will you let us know what you think?

True....and I'll let you know when everything is set up. I'm in the process of an overhaul, equipment and home remodel

I am curious about this "hard" usb supplied with the Rendu. Is it simply a throwaway? Or is it the most direct and noise free path from the Rendu to your DAC?

The Rendu is on my list of possibilities in conjunction with the small green computer guy's unit...Sonicorbitor or whatever it is called...looks interesting.

You could be right! I'll certainly try it out if I can, the problem for me is space, I just don't have the room at the moment for a direct connection, hence the reason for this post for a quality cable.

I think that hard USB is not an ideal solution and should be avoided, is possible. It may be the most direct but it is not the most noise-free.

If that one had an option to remove the 5v lead and had a built in ground lift switch I would buy it before you could say Snore! ;)

Sorry, I could'nt help myself! :)

Have you compared it to a cable or making an educated guess. In this scenario not sure why a cable with additional contacts, etc, would be superior.

Cheers,

Somewhere in between. I used the stub, then swapped it out with the WireWorld. On the other hand, I swapped out the Belkin with another WireWorld at the same time, so it wasn't a clean comparison.

 

My guess would be materials and design, but if's just a guess. Not terribly educated at that.
