While shorter the better, technically, you should be fine up to 5m without any perceivable/audible loss in quality.

I have used upto 4 meters between PC and DAC without drop outs.
I still have that cable. It is a green colour Forest cable from Audioquest.
Shorter is though advisable unless you are constrained to go with longer cables.

I am now 95% on digione signature, so use digital coaxial cable and not USB.
But occasionally I do use my laptop with the 4-meter Audioquest USB cable so that I can operate it from my listening position and simultaneously use it for my office work also.

Other than that, I have a cable that came with the DAC which is around a meter and another very short 20 inch cable which I was using with USBridge and USBridge Signature

Any particular reason shorter cable is advisable , since you have both the cables did you notice any difference whilst using both ?
