D10b does not have SPDIF input, it's output. Topping E50 has SPDIF input and balanced outputs.

No, there is not, that I have been able to find. You would have to step up in price to the Schiit Modius or the Soncoz LA-QXD1. Or depending on where you are located, the SMSL M300 MKII.

I was looking for the same thing and due to a lack of options ended up ordering the significantly more expensive E50.
It is currently on a Black Friday discount on hifigo.com for 228$. You can also get an extra 10$ off your order with a coupon HIFIGOYM10, but you'll probably need to add another item to the cart that is not already discounted (can be a cheap one though). They seem to offer tax/duty paid free shipping to many countries so I took the plunge.

Aww. HIFIGOYM10 discount code isn’t valid for the items in your cart

:( Too bad... I see that I can apply the code if i select e.g. EX5 + a cheap banana plug, but it doesn't work with E50 + the same plug. Maybe it is due to total price of order... Anyway, sorry for the misinformation!

If you have a PC and a Pi, with this you can output Coax from of the two and connect the other with USB directly. I think its nice to have this kind of products.
