why not look at the products that Uptone Audio makes? (no affiliation)
any cable should be about the same - an exception could possibly be Lush but they are not common in the US and it is unclear what they claim to be doing that others aren't
I use a Shunyata Venom in my system and it is very good. I think the Wireworld is better but more money. I also thought about one of the higher end Audioquest. But in the end I think that the Shunyata is probably the best for anywhere near the money. USB is not the best interface for audio. I would rather invest in an all in one unit like an Aurender or the Bluesound Vault 2 .
+1 ~ "USB is not the best interface for audio"
Good recommendations here on Venom and Curious cables. If you’re not planning on replacing mini, I would look at Schitt’s Wyrd Decrapifier. It simply works in eliminating the inherit noise and glitches. They also offer 15 days in home trial.
I am using Wyrd along with Wireworld Platinum and very happy with the sound. To my ears, WW Platinum is bit more natural sounding compared to few others I have tried but it is pricey.
Guess not. I found your prior post on this topic (FLAC vs WAV 1/21/16). Interesting.
I think maybe preferences could be system-dependent and person-specific.
ricred1 - I will audition a friend’s Platinum 2.0 next weekend and give you my impressions of it vs the Curious as an additional data point to jwm’s.
