Best USB cable...


Can anyone tell me if there is a difference in the quality of USB cables? I am running a Mac Mini into a Valab dac with a 12 foot USB cable right now.

I just discovered that there is a definite difference in Toslink cables, so it has me wondering if that is the case in USB cables.

Any comments will be very welcome. Thanks.

Thanks Edo...
I just purchased a Poiena USB cable. I am looking forward to receiving it.
I have to say that even the cheap little $5 usb cable running between my Mac Mini and my Valab dac sounds incredibly great.

The Poiema that I have on order has to be really a major improvement over what I am listening to now. No one has ever returned one yet according to Ridge Street Audio. If it can produce sound better than what I am hearing, I will be amazed.

Should get it next week.

Ed... I am very anxious to get them. Are they a big improvement over standard usb? If so, I will be amazed.

What are you run on each side of your Poiema?

Mattzack... MacMini w/ WD 500GB storage... iRoc Ultra Fi USB DAc into more Poiemas... for this particular system, this works very well.

I've learned that how the whole system works together makes the music.

Nice. Thanks.
I just ordered a Wireworld from The Cable Company. This will replace my Belden High Performance Pure AV. I'll post a report once the Wireworld breaks in a bit.
