foobar means Windows. I rec the Schiit Modi Multibit. It plays whatever foobar dishes out.
It’s one push to cycle through USB, Toslink and coax.
Windows programs seemCurrently to find the output at random. Much faster than Sound<>Playback
And then.you can choose the best one on foobar if they sound different. Currently fiber from the sound card is worst for me.
I just run it into a Vali 2 with a 6FQ7 in it.
This two stack takes up little real estate.
That leaves you $100 for a DH Labs or ViaBlue USB cable.
