The more I read, the more I am starting to believe that USB and toslink have a lot of disadvantages compared to coax.
I know my next streamer will not be a computer but an Allo Raspberry Pi box with a coax and BNC only output hat.
Like others, I'm not longer convinced computers are the best way to go.
Just so you know, it’ll still be a computer! Smaller and more dedicated but still a computer. Many companies have figured out how to properly implement an audiophile USB connection in today’s hi end gear. It’s no longer your fathers USB, 😎
