Hi Per
We try not to recommend cables, because it depends on so many things. The enclosed USB cable is acceptable quality ,but maybe some have a good suggestion for an upgrade?
A good USB cable should have seperate shield from ground and the conductors should be twisted. But all but the cheapest cables are like this.

The LA120C is really worth waiting for!

According to the test/review below, there should be no audible difference between ordinary (cheap) usb cables and 'audiophile' (expensive) ones, because of the usb protocol. It works or it doesn't.

General speaking (I'm not talking about the LA-100 here): if usb cables sound different, then the dac is not designed well or your are using the bus powering of usb in stead of a dedicated power supply.
