Should I use a USB2 port or a USB3 port to connect my DAC to Pi 4B?

The title pretty much says it all. I’m new to the Pi scene, I want to create a streamer to use as a Roon end point, and I was assuming that the USB3 port would be the better option. But then I thought, maybe I shouldn’t just assume that…

I can’t tell that it makes any difference at all. I have two RPi4’s and two different DAC’s I use with them.

Makes absolutely no difference.

DAC manual should tell you what it needs. If it (the DAC) is USB2 then it should make no difference.

Thanks for the replies guys!
