Direct connections are preferred. If you need to connect your DAC more than 3ft away, you may use a USB hub to serve as an extension.

Connecting to PS4/PS5

PS5 Owners: Be sure to connect to one of the USB ports on the rear side of your PS5. The front USB port may introduce noise.

Also Note: PS4 and PS5 are known to limit USB Audio output volume. Please be sure to install PS4/PS5 tested firmware to force proper volume levels. All current DACs ship with appropriate firmware. For older DACs, you may need to update your firmware.
