    is it because of the cable impedance? if DIYing USB cables, what would be the ideal cable type? (perhaps a link?)

    suggestion for a dedicated Linux distribution for music listening that works with a touchscreen

    Unsure what you meant my target device but when I used moode (RPi -> DAC -> head amp), I never have to install anything else. I was controlling moode on my browser.

    AOSHIDA SMSL C200 Review (DAC & Amp)

    is the dac section truly balanced? I compared the product page of the Su8v2 vs C200 and the Su8v2 has 2x 9039q2m while this seems it only has 1. It seems it uses some electronic "trickery" to convert the unbalanced signal to balanced? thanks
