My CD transport has USB 3.0 type A for the output and the D/A converter has USB 2.0 type B for the input. How can I make it works? What cable should I use?
No worries. USB 3 has the same audio protocol as USB 2 ( there is no USB 3 audio protocol). Standard USB A and B connectors are identical for USB 2 and 3. USB 3 may require greater bandwidth for data transfer but this is irrelevant for audio use as there is no USB 3 audio.
A completely unneccessary gizmo.
Bet it's pricey too :-)
No need for any adaptor as there is no USB 3 for audio. The only place that you may need one is e.g. for a USB 3 external HDD connected to a PC where you may need a USB 3 micro to USB "A" connector cable but this does not relate to the OP's situation. BTW Audioquest do make one of the latter and it is very good (the best uses AQ Carbon cable). I use one being a user of DAS and not NAS.
