quality of the clocking is greatly associated with power supply and ground plane currents, not to mention internal em/rfi.:
,spdif cable ,
fire wire to usb,
halide design bridge ,
thunderbolt,
OR5,
MCRU linear power supply.

bottom line am not tech but just practical terms step by step ,how do i set up my dac to my laptop or CDP for up-most results in sound quality ?

    What equipment are you using because there is no point in us recomending cables that may cost more than your dac. The best connection is a direct connection for theoretical purposes
