    Default DAC Cable Question

    I'm new to all this audio stuff and I just picked up a pair of new M60's. I also just ordered a HK 3480 stereo amp online. I'm just playing cds through a cd player and an old receiver my dad had lying around. I want to be able to play music from my computer through my HK 3480. This FiiO D3 DAC seems like it would be good enough for my needs, http://www.amazon.com/FiiO-Digital-A...pr_product_top. The only thing is I can't figure out what kind of cable I would need to hook it up to my computer. A usb A to B? Like this, http://www.amazon.com/Mediabridge-Hi...usb+a+b+cable? Or something else? The optical in jack looks like a different shape than the end of the usb A to B cable. I would really appreciate any help or advice! Thanks!

    I cannot figure out what cable I need for the life of me! I need one from my usb on my computer to the optical on the D3 Dac (is optical and spdif the same thing?).

    Also, does anyone have a link for a double male to male RCA cable? I can't seem to find one.

    It says it works with any source having a Toslink or digital coax output. So you need one of those two. Offhand the coax is probably the better of the two, especially for a $30 dollar DAC. They probably didn't use the best optical to electrical circuitry.
