stupid questions albeit I'm not home : I understand that in order to get rid of any cable and even of any non Uptone device between my MBPr and TEAC 501 with an unboxed Green USB Regen card in between, I need 2 USPCB A>B Adapters ; is it a good idea to order 2  turned 90-degrees USPCB A>B Adapters ? is postage charged twice to France ?

Hi: Are you considering placing your MacBook Pro laptop behind your Teac DAC, close enough to use a USPCB from the laptop to the DAC?  You would need to set the laptop on book or something to position it--and any REGENs--at the correct height to align its USB port with that of your DAC.

In any case, you would definitely want to stay with our standard orientation--and not the 90-degree rotated 'B' plug version.

Of course not!  In fact, you could order a dozen USPCB A>B Adapters and they would ship overseas for the same $14.  They weigh next to nothing.  The cost is because any non-bendable item--even in a padded pouch--gets considered by the post office as a "package," and $14 is the amount we pay for First Class Air Mail.  

 

(Actually, because I set up the USPCBs as a 4 ounce items our system--for our ease when shipping--orders for a whole bunch of them would likely trigger a larger shipping charge, which I would see and refund.  But 2-3 of them will still bill at just the $14; $3 in USA.)

thank you Alex. I can't place my MacBook Pro laptop behind my Teac DAC where it is at the moment. Maybe if I switch the pre and DAC placements : will check when back home and hopefully be able to order 2 USPCBs, one on each side of my unboxed Green USB Regen. Another silly question in the age of RFI/EMI phobia : though the devices appear well shielded, could such a physical proximity defeat the purpose ?

 

As of the height, I might rather go for an extra inner tube ;-) http://barrydiamentaudio.com/vibration.htm

Hi Charles:

Glad you like the USPCB A>B Adapter.  These things have been selling like crazy, so I guess you are not alone. 

And to those waiting, I promise that the version with microB plug in place of full size USB 'B' is in the works.  John and I have just bee very busy with other things...9_9

 

--Alex C.

G'day Alex

 

Are the USPCB micro B adapters going to be available in the next few weeks?? :D Or month 9_9. I'm hoping to have the funds to order an iso regen soon to go between my sms200 and chord mojo. I am considering getting 2 USPCB's (hopefully one of them micro B)...I am also trying to figure out the spacial gymnastics of getting the USPCB's to have the correct orientation so that the mojo is facing upwards after everything is connected:S. This isn't helped by the fact that the sms200 has a vertical connector (usb A) in the opposite orientation to what I thought was standard - but maybe there is no standard. The larger gap in the USB A port is on the right when looking at the back of the sms200.

 

Will the micro B USPCB have the micro B oriented with the wider flat side facing up?

 

Thanks

Brendan

Hi Brendan:

We have not forgotten about the microB version of the USPCB, it is just that we still have a lot going on and that project--simple as it is--keeps getting pushed behind other top priority tasks for John.  We will get there, but not before the end of 2017. Sorry.:|

Ok then, I will wait patiently :cool:. Audioquest does make a USB type B to micro B hard adapter that I might have to get as a temporary fix to use with the USPCB ....however,  I assume it would degrade some of the goodness of the USPCB???
