USB backup up drive

I have a Seagate ‘Backup Plus Portable Drive’ connected to a Uniti Core.

Can someone tell me if the music streams out at 2.0 or 3.0 speed?

Both speeds will


Audioquest say that when using hard drives with ‘USB 3.0 Interface’, best to not use their Jitterbug, because performance is decelerated to a ‘High Speed Interface’.

Otherwise the drive isn’t taking full advantage of the USB 3.0 speed.

The only time you might benefit from more speed is if you are doing a large file transfer such as an initial backup. Music streaming is way below the data transfer rate of USB2.
