@amirm just wondering but have you ever measured if there actually is a measurable difference between using for example a high-powered pc with actual load on CPU/GPU compared to a streamer like allo usbridge?

Short answer no. But when gpu is running there may be ground loop issue. Cutting the ground loop will resulting no difference whatsoever.

Just noticed that Motu introduced the M2 at 199€ on Thomann.
https://motu.com/en-us/products/m-series/m2/specs/: 24 bits/192 kHz DAC, dynamic range (A-weighted): 120 dB, THD+N (unweighted): -110 dB
Does MIDI, balanced and unbalanced, has an on/off button (quite rare) and has a nice color screen for the levels. Too bad the controls aren't on top (as usual for these devices) and it uses the fragile USB-C connector.

Be great if Amir could get one of these to measure. I’d love to be able to find an interface with great ADC at this price that also has a DAC section equivalent to the best of the £200 DAC’s tested con this site.
