Hi Rui,
No, it was not a mistake. The minimum length for a digital cable should be 1.5M. This is mitigate the impact of reflections in the cable; this is particularly problematic for digital cables as they operate at higher bandwidth than analog cables, and there is bandwidth-dependent component to the impact and degree that reflections have on the signal.

Also, Shunyata makes amazing USB cables; the Alpha USB cable was a revelation for me, and a component-level upgrade. You can find my review of it here at AA from 2019. The Shunyata Sigma USB is another level above that because of the increased clarity, transparency and focus that the Shunyata TAP device provides, and the top-level Omega USB will absolutely knock your socks off.

Ah, good question, Greg. I forgot to include these classes of digital cables because I don't use them in my system But, yes, the minimum length requirement is for any digital cable is 1.5 M.

AA member SCAudiophile (Mark) is a great resource for the Shunyata clock cables as he has qute a bit of experience with them. I forget at the moment if Mark uses a digital coax or AES/EBU for his clock, for example, but he's a great resource, nonetheless.

Shunyata’s digital cables have extremely tight tolerances. Minimum lengths that are quoted for their cables may not apply to other brands that don’t have the same aims. It’s best to seek the manufacturer’s specific guidance for their own products. Wireworld sells digital cables as short as 0.5m - which is something Shunyata would not do - so we are not looking at apples-to-apples.
