The Bel Canto display shows the incoming signal spec (48kHz) and source selected (SPDIF 1) as well as firmware number.
It's a 24/192 DAC so it would upsample any incoming signal anyway.
I have found the XLR to sound better when matched with a balanced system (preamp and power amps). I use the DAC3.5VB/Pre3/REF1000M
I have contacted Bel Canto Design. True customer service, no doubt.
Here were the answers for the above questions:
1- The rate is auto select.
2- The other info describes the software version.
3- Balanced connections are ALWAYS better at preventing unwanted noise. In addition, The Bel Canto balanced connections are 6 dB higher in output.
