There might be some individual component interactions here, because I recently replaced a 1m Pangea with the 6" Curious and found a significant improvement. I also tried a Cinnamon 1m and Carbon 1.5m (both Audioquest) and likewise found them inferior to the short Curious and also to the Pangea. Not to say that continuing to move up the price ladder from the Curious (WW, Sablon, etc) won't give better resultsI have a Curious USB cable, it is about 6 inches long. I just tried a 1M Pangea and to my surprise it sounded better! Is it because of the longer length or the cable itself? I know the Pangea usb is considered an el cheap- o cable, can someone recommend something better?
Are there any supporting opinions or (even better) evidence that this is true? Everything that I have read says the shorter the better, unlike with coax S/PDIF where there is an optimal length and too short can introduce errors and artifacts.a usb cable needs to be a min certain length
