I ordered the 1/2 meter one because I was gonna use it with my Apogee Duet 2. I'm gonna do some sound test to see if I hear any difference. If I like it, I'll order a 1 meter too.

Initial impressions are that the WW did sound different than my Monster Cable. It's a bit more forward on vocals. The jury is still out if the difference is better.

Hey Mike,

Do you still have the WW in your system? I'm looking at picking one up as well. How does it compare since it's been a few months?

I purchased the Starlight USB from Ivan to run from my MacBook Air to Audio Research Dac 8. I easily noticed the difference from the Belkin. rate it a 10 for my use.

Thanks, I'll probably order one for my Mac Mini to WFS DAC2. I'm sure it will best the one that was sent with the unit.

I use the 1.5M WW Platinum USB between my laptop (Music Server) and my USB to SPDIF Converter. I owned the 1.5M Audioquest Carbon which was not a bad cable. From my experience I feel the WW Platinum USB raises the SQ to higher plateau. I also like it’s design separating the signal from the power along the entire length of the cable. What a great design!

i know most of you use a usb cable from the dac the laptap computer ? correct ?
i would like to share something that i iscovered a few weeks ago & it makes a huge difference.
Is anyone using a hardrive to mac-mini configuration or media player to a hardisk using USB- MiNI b ? try replacing that generic mini-b with a wireworld starlight, Ultraviolet, etc. It makes a huuuugggge difference in sound quality and picture quality.
I couldn't believe it myself.
