I have a new Parasound zdac on order to replace my ps audio DAC III. I will be connecting it via USB from my htpc in the basement to the DAC in my first floor living room. The run requires 50' so I purchased the mono price active USB cable that boosts the signal beyond the normal limits
I will try this after everything arrives. Will the long run cause audio issues...sound degradation? I can also grab a powered USB hub to put on one of the ends which I understand helps boost the signal as well.
I have to imagine people out there have USB Dacs that are no where near there HTPC's.
