Hi All. I'm setting up my equipment in a new room and have the option of putting my Mac
and Hard Drives in a different room (more of a large cupboard really) to my monitors etc.
I have an Mbox (USB) and a MOTU 828 MkII (Firewire) and would like them in the main room.
Does anybody know what the maximum cable run distance is for both USB and Firewire audio
interfaces? Cheers folks!!

Although 5m firewire cables work, I wouldn't call them rock solid. About 1.5m seems to be
about the limit for reliability. Anything that is powered and chained through gives you
extra run minimising signal degradation.
