@tom_hankinsHmmm. Did not know the Carbon was available as a SPDIF. Thought it was just a USB wire. Good.Do you feel the Carbon is similar in either respect, USB or SPDIF, acoustically or sonically speaking of course?Thanks.. . . . . . . . . . . ...

Hi!ICs can indeed improve SS width. SS height and depth to a lesser degree. I’ve found it takes a combination of decent to quality cabling from the outlets to the speakers for the SS to be fully expanded, either artificially or with adherence to...
