Best USB and HDMI around $100?

I want to try a new USB and an HDMI for sound. Any recommendations? I want to see if I can get better sound from my DAC and Multi channel from my disc spinner.

    Probably the best entry level HDMI is either Audioquest Pearl or Forest.

    As far as USB, don’t really think there is any difference between reputable manufacturers. Then again I don’t use them for audio.

    I got good results from USB but optical SPDIF was much better

    @fbm211 I never paid attention to those other outputs on my 2 channel because of their speed limit (rarely an issue if ever) but maybe I should.
