    Before getting the CA further down the line Iím going to try one of these Topping D50s USB DAC ES9038Q2M DAC XMOS XU208 32Bit/768KHz via USB out of the Touch and compare it to the digital out of the Touch into my Arcam SA10 amp with itís built in Sabre ESS9016 DAC.

    Does anyone uses this Touch & Topping combo?
    Iím sure someone does but I thought the D50 was discontinued? The E30 seems to be getting some good press.

    I have an E30 running off my Touch and the sound is really excellent running into Anthony Gallo Micro speakers and sub.

    The E30 is arrived connected via the USB cable that came with it. One thing I've noticed that someone else mentioned, when the bit rate of the tracks change you have to cycle through the sources back to USB and the press mute and unmute.

    Do you know if it's the same when fed by coaxial?

    Does a better USB cable make a difference.

    Using coax doesn't have the same issue with sample rate.

    Thatís disappointing. I wonít be getting an E30 then. That issue does not exist with my Khadas Tone Board nor with an Audioquest Dragonfly. Does anyone have a clue why the Topping canít react to sample rate changes when other USB Dacs can?

    The E30 works fine with a piCorePlayer or similar. It is just an issue with the Touch and EDO. When EDO was under active development there were quite a few custom kernels for various DACs so I imagine if development was ongoing it could be made to work. This was actually the reason I built a piCorePlayer.

    I also notice the E30 display will not switch off when the Touch EDO is off no matter what settings I choose. It worked properly with an SB3.

    I'm finding that USB stinks for audio, even high end USBs like the Audioquest Diamond. I bought a cheap chitt glass toslink from Amazon for testing and that doesn't sound half bad. Looking into higher end Toslink now for more testing.
