Dan, What are your thoughts on adding this to a system vs upgrading ones USB cable? Or I guess it could be both.

I know USB cables can cost more than this Wyred 4 Sound Recovery.

Tim.......There is no doubt that the Femto clock in the W4S Recovery reduces jitter before the digital data enters the DAC, but I think a quality USB cable is essential in maintaining the data packet flow as contiguous as possible. I doubt a cheap USB printer cable used with a Recovery will perform at or near the quality level a Wireworld Silver or Platinum USB cable with a Recovery. Like almost everything in audio, the weakest link will generally create a performance bottleneck.

Thx Dan...thats what I figured. And I imagine the Recovery would be a good complimentary partner for a quality USB cable.
