    I can't argue with that. garym, I've gotten lots of help from you and many of the "old timers" on this board. Many thanks.

    However, I do have to disagree with the importance of being able to "hear" the difference. You KNOW it's not about "how it sounds" but rather, is it the "best" available. LOL. Good seeing you here again after all this time.

    Seeking the best is a good goal of course, but at some point (for some people) the "seeking" takes over from the enjoyment of having reached "really good". As they say, don't let the "perfect" be the enemy of the good. On the other hand, I have some friends that say, "I'll quit looking for better when they close the lid on my coffin.". Take care and enjoy! /Gary

    Has anyone used Starting point systems DAC 3 successfully with the touch?

    I tried it keeps restarting when I select DIGITAL out in the settings. Am I doing something wrong?

    I think it does restart when you change the output setting.

    I only have my own experience with my Gungnir and my Modi DACs to draw upon, but FWIW ... if you are trying to use USB, you should see your specific DAC listed as an option on the Touch screen. I.E. - digital AND analogue AND Starting Point DAC 3. If your DAC isn't listed as an option on the Touch screen, then it probably isn't going to work - at least not on USB. Even if you do see it listed, it may not play which is what I faced with my Gungnir. If you have Coax s/pdif available as DAC inputs, then the Touch EDO may work using digital out. It did with my Gungnir.

    As was mentioned earlier, the Touch does reboot every time you change output.

    One final observation based on my experience. The original Touch will play (up to) 96/24 files without EDO. It will convert it to analogue output (internal DAC), or output it digitally by way of Coax or Optical. The EDO app provides TWO enhancements to the Touch. One, it enables digital output of up to 192/24, and Two it adds USB as another output.

    Curious if anyone has had success connecting a Denafrips DAC via USB? First attempt didnĺt work, but I think I have a powered hub somewhere to try.

    Has someone borked the spreadsheet at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...KCn8k54uhqYKQ/ ?

    Need to go back to the version from 30th Jan for the models to match the manufacturers, not sure what other data is wrong atm as well.
    Synology 918+ running lmscommunity Docker container -> SB Touch w. EDO -> Pro-Ject Pre Box S2 Digital, 1 x Boom, 2 x Radio, 2 x RPi with Pi-DAC+ hats.

    Hi redtom

    I see you're right. For example the Bel Canto 2Qute dac ... (the 2Qute is a Chord), and also the Benchmark 'mytek' dac is new to me :-?.

    P.S. I tried the RME Audio ADI-2 DAC FS and it didn't work. Probably needs a USB-hub between (not tested).
