In order to take advantage of the I2S ports on my Singer SU-6 and Gustard X-26 DAC (both recently acquired), I've been looking for a short and decent sounding HDMI cable that connects the IIS ports.  Without a readily available one, I'm using a 1m SignalCable HDMI to break in the DAC.  A 0.5 ft 4K HDMI cable proves too short.  A 0.75m VIABLUE HDMI is coming tomorrow.  A 0.3m (1 foot) WireWorld UltraVilolet HDMI is arriving a day after.  I'm excited and expecting improved SQ when those short cables are here.

 

What I2S cable(s) are you using?

Hello Thuan, I use a 300mm WireWorld UltraViolet to connect my SU1 to my Gustard X20 PRO. Same as you I got a cheap one to run it in, there was a noticable improvement in the noise floor as well as SQ using the WireWorld UltraViolet, someone did some testing and arrived at the conclusion shorter is better with HDMI cables for this purpose,enjoy your new kit.
Best Regards Rob.

I use AQ Vodka 0.6m and I am very happy with that.

Thanks guys for your inputs. So far the WW UltraViolet is the winner in my 10 days new kit. Classical music plays beautifully on it. The Singxer/Gus combo is neutral, I think.
