Be careful, all I2S aren't wired the same and don't have same connectors. I2S was originally designed for inside components, allowing the designer to ensure matching. Whatever you're considering, please first check w/manufs that they'll be compatible.
FWIW, I think Denafrips has a converter like you're describing. I'd ask Alvin. BTW, the new Terminator2 has 3 different I2S connections for this very reason. Cheers,
The sonore Ultra Digital looks like a nice usb-to-i2s adapter that is configurable to support i2s on 6 different dacs.
I own a Pink Faun s/pdif card and it's excellent. The Pink Faun i2s card can support many different dacs using either hdmi connection or RJ45. The card has a "sub-board" that has the actual output configuration and socket. What he does is select a customized sub-board for your particular dac that has the correct pin-configuration for the hdmi/rj45 socket (because all the dacs can have slightly different pin assignments for each wire).
@melm - here's the link:
Don't be concerned about ordering a bridge from Pink Faun in "Europe". He uses good shipping companies.
One thing to note about Pink Faun cards is that they have a known issue with Intel processors when running Linux. I've been told this issue does not really exist when running Windows, but I used an AMD processor motherboard when I built my last computer just to make sure.
