The manual of the XMC-1 says the USB Stream input (#4-rear panel) is used to connect the USB digital ouput of a device, like a computer ... based- audio source ... that supports USB Audio Class 2 (UAC2),
Also, it is recommended to use a good quality commercial USB cable (no longer than 2 meters) and also, to avoid unusual "audiophile" cables that may not comply with standard USB data cable specifications.
So, I would like to connect my laptop (Dell inspiron 15 5000 series i7) to my XMC-1, to play Hi Res music (trying first time), but I don't know what USB cable type I need to do it (almost 62 years old, and no a computer...)
I could no find any Emotiva USB cable in their web page so I hope to buy a good one from Monoprice.
I just need your help to let me know what USB cable I need to get.
