power in usbcabel

i tried everything, jitterbug and ifi iSilencer +.
ifi nano and other devices, for usb.
it's snake oil.
the only thing that works is very simple
clean 5volt power
this powercabel
and supra cable of 70cm
and adapter, for my usbcabel, supra excalibur of 3 meters.
as well as, ifi xpower 5volt power supply
to my gustard u18.
before the sound filled, especially the treble, mass, of distortion.
now it is, very soft in the treble, as well as much more 3d.
forget just say laptop or streamer, disconnect internally
the power on the usb port, and uses the cable to provide clean power with external power supply

Moon's gravity causes tidal effects. That's a known issue.

The Gustard U18 does not use USB power, and it is a no-no to break the ground connection for the USB cable. If both your DAC and computer have a ground connection on the power cable, then it is likely a ground loop problem. It would be better to use a normal USB cable instead of the one that is overpriced.

It is good to ask here before you make technical changes... There are dangerous or lethal safety problems if the ground connection on one of the power cables is removed. You can read the manual here:
