Topic: USB Re-clocker/Regenerator

I just purchased the ADI-2 dac and wanted to know if the forum think you need to add a USB re-clocker/regenerator before the USB input on the ADI dac (i.e. microrendu, etc.).  I using a mac mini, Raspberry pi 4 with Ropieee into the ADI dac.

If you think a re=clocker/regenerator would be helpful, what unit would you recommend?

Thanks for your help.

Re: USB Re-clocker/Regenerator

No, this function is already built into ADI-2, called "Steadyclock FS".

Doubling it doesn't improve anything.
If something is already straight you cannot straighten it more.

Sidenote:
Same applies to esoteric expensive USB cables, there is no improvement whatsoever that can be gained from them.
