Three x 3-foot long unbalanced jack to jack cables daisy-chained together (9 feet)
One 9-foot long unbalanced jack to jack cable.
Will there be a significant (audible) difference? (i.e. do the connections detract significantly from the signal / add noise etc)?
I could of course try it and see (and I will) - but sometimes I just like to go with the advice of more experienced folk...
