I have been saying for years that USB is the poorest interface to use for music. It was designed for peripherals (mice and keyboard and printers), not music. The PC manufactures want you to use usb as every time a user opens up a computer, it generates customer service calls, which they do not want, because it costs them money. So, they create the computers bellybutton...everyone has one and keeps customer service calls down. USB is incredibly polluted. You don;t want that feeding your DAC. Oh..wait...it doesn't feed your dac (usually). Usually, its fed by a $149 usb to spdif converter...going into a $10k dac, and everyone says they are okay with that? Well, not me!
