USB-A is a very interesting connector for OTG :) Sometimes one needs to make one, for ugly hacking and testing, but to officially sell this...

I'm confused now. :confused:
Why ? I bought a semi cheap,semi expensive cable and now you all can go discuss more important hifi realted things, with people who actually have a problem, real important question (s)
 
There is actually no such thing as a USB "for hifi" except in terms of cosmetics / looks, as you noted they make no difference to the sound or anything.
Yes... except one small nit.

You need to be careful w some of the 'cheap' USB cables that you find. I'm talking about some of the cheap cables out of China.
Buy from a reputable dealer/store.

Note: I'm not talking about 'audiophile' types but the basic computer cables.
I agree that you could probably buy a good USB-C to USB-C cable (which is actually a better quality cable since it can handle higher data speeds, then just add the adapters. )

Agree, not all cables are created equal in terms of durability and even sometimes basic functionality... but if we're talking a cable that costs $20+ for 5ft you're probably not in danger of getting one that's improperly constructed.
 
I bought this cable from a danish store with very good customer service, not the perfect length but if i upgrade (my amp or use a differenet amp) or don't need it (for my amp), it's a little longer and more versatile for other products that use usb a, also about placement, further away from other cables in my hifi system, 2 meters is a little more versatile than 1.5 meter.

Looks very well made, should work as good as any other cable for long time.

My only regret would be cable made of OFC than tinned copper, we want everything high end after all ;)

OFC is copper...
 
It's the mental thing when someone has though a little more about the cable made for music (can of course be used for data,productivty vise
versa) than your typical black or white usb cable
How do you think the cable knows what bits are music and what is other data?
 
You just need a cable. I've been happy with the "ugreen" brand on Amazon - inexpensive and seem to be well made.

I've had good luck with Ugreen, Sabrent, CableCreation, but my goto is StarTech.

I usually search their website first, then search amazon when I know the part number I want.

For example I picked up one of these for my D50s since i wanted it in a certain location that was pretty far away from my computer.
