ndac upgrade

I had a Belden 4794R cable with Belden BNC plugs made by the Blue Jeans Cable Co. for a grand total of £40. £20 of that was for P&P. Only took 4 days to arrive from placement of order. I use it to connect my MacBPro/M2Tech/nDac.  It has more clarity/detail than my home spun Bandridge LC5509 cable. Good VFM if anyone is looking for a cheap I.C.

Still have the DC1 connecting my CDX2.2 to the nDac and that's how it will remain. Don't have to swap cables between the two sources.

Aren't you interested to try out Belden between the CDX2.2 and nDac? I'm not sure what you mean by the last sentence of connecting two sources. MBPro/M2Tech are just as much a source/transport as CDX2.2. 

Re; the Belden 4794R cable, it's about the same diameter as the DC1 but stiffer. It can be bent and does keep it's shape reasonably well. However to avoid stressing the cable with a tight radius of curvature I would spec. a slightly longer length than the DC1. I'm not an expert so I can't say what the max. length would be before any degradation of signal would occur.

I find the DC1 cable easier to dress than the Belden in my system, hence I'm happy as is.You should see the cables behind my rack to understand that.(12 boxes+T.T.)

Don't have to disconnect the DC1 to put on my  Mac. I use both BNC sockets on the nDAC. One for the DC1/CDX2 the other for the Belden/Mac. I thought  that was clear, sorry.
